After waking his wife up for the first time. To Nora’s dismay, Victor begins the process of stabilizing her in the same process he used for himself. Meanwhile, Bruce and Alfred are pressed trying to figure out how to resuscitate the women he had just rescued. Recognizing what kind of challenge they face. Bruce implores the use of WayneTech to crack this one. With that assistance comes the WayneTech science man we all love, Lucious Fox.
While Nora and Victor are gallivanting about Gotham. Bruce, Alfred, and Lucious are hard at work seeking a cure for the three women Victor used to help further his research. After a while of grinding away at it, Luscious finds a possible solution. Problem is, it needs to be tested on living things first. Yet they don’t have enough time to run their serum through animal trials. Bruce opts to be the guinea pig, despite the potentially lethal risk.
This issue is a really nice twist on an old format. Working your hands to the bone for a goal that turns to be not what you wanted. Getting the keys to the kingdom and finding out it not your kingdom. Freeze being blindsided by Nora’s agency is a new twist that hasn’t really been explored. Nora is her own person and with her newly voiced character development that we’ve only known as Freeze’s literal objectification of love and its pursuit. I’m excited to see her blossom into her own and perhaps be a proper replacement for Victor moving forward.
