LEGO Batman’s Mr. Freeze chills this corny headline to the bone

With a name like Victor Fries, life could have gone a few ways for the scientist with the unfortunate surname. He could have spent his life working dead-end fast food jobs, when a botched store robbery leads to a horrible deformity and drives him to a life of crime as the nefarious Mr. Fries. But that’s not how it happened at all. 

In the Batman universe, Fries is driven insane by the death of his wife in a cryogenic accident that also leaves the doctor unable to survive outside of a sub-zero environment. He blames Batman for his wife’s untimely death and condition, and dons a special suit and becomes the villainous Mr. Freeze. 

Warner Bros. Interactive sent along these screens of the little guy in action in the upcoming LEGO Batman: The Videogame. He’s certainly looking mighty serious as he terrorizes Gotham City with pals like The Riddler and Scarecrow.

LEGO Batman: The Videogame is set to hit shelves this fall, and will probably be available on a system you own (since it’s coming to seven of them).
