    • I personally don’t have too many comics that feature him, and I don’t like to recommend things without having read them myself. That said, I’ve hard good things about the TPB “Snow” which deals with his origin. If we’re talking non-comic adaptations, there’s the BtAS episode “Heart of Ice,” the animated feature SubZero, Freeze’s appearances in Arkham City and Origins (particularly the “Cold Cold Heart” DLC) and of course, the COOLest of all, “Batman and Robin.” (I kid, I kid…)
