Last Issue

Ms. Freeze decides that she wants a divorce. With a husband willing to kill people, and ruin other’s lives for the sole purpose of betraying her wishes and agency. Who can blame her? Victor is left with no choice but to ask for Batman’s help to bring her back to what he assumes is sanity. Still not respecting her wishes as a person, let alone his wife.

This Issue

Batman and Freeze set out to find the Mrs. En route, Bruce takes the time to probe Victor for information on Nora, in hopes to find her next location. This leads them to an art museum. Nora taking her favorite piece. So kindly replacing it with multiple sculptures of cops in terror. Let’s hope our new thermodynamic miracle has the gumption to bring Nora down before her cold reign shatters the people of Gotham.

Thoughts

This arc is getting more and more fun. Nora has turned from a helpless, inanimate object. To a force to be reckoned with. Exercising her own agency, rejecting the notion that Victor loved her. Critiquing him based on the last few things she said to Victor before he put her in stasis.

Born in Florida, dragged to California because of Internet dating. Comics have always helped me have a healthy escape when I was younger. As I got older my friends used me as their comic encyclopedia for random trivia. Now, I show my daughter all the stories and characters that helped me through, and being able to share my views on that through reviews is one of my favorite privileges.
Summary
It is clear that this arc is about to come to ahead. Honestly, this feels like one of those what-ifs that went all the way to the best possible outcome side of things. I hope Nora sticks and Victor goes. She's everything that he isn't as a villain. She needs none of his crazy methods because she expected to be dead. What else is there to do other than live life to the fullest?
Good
  • More Mrs. Freeze
  • Unlikely Alliances
  • Wonderful Development
Bad
  • Slower Read than last couple issues

Great
