Mr. Freeze (by ElDave)

"Think of it, Batman. To never again walk on a summer's day with the hot wind in your face and a warm hand to hold. Oh yes, I'd kill for that!"

Mr. Freeze's biography, courtesy of the Batman Wiki:
When Victor Fries was a child he made a hobby of freezing animals to death. Worried by this behavior, his parents sent him to a strict boarding school where Victor felt outcast and became depressed. However, when he met and befriended a young woman named Nora, the two fell in love and later married. But their happiness was short-lived: Nora was diagnosed with a fatal disease (known as MacGregor's Syndrome in Batman and Robin ), and Fries, sickened with sorrow, attempted to save her using cryogenic technology. However, the experiment went terribly wrong and Fries' equipment malfunctioned, consuming him and his lab in an explosion of ice.

Victor somehow survived, but now his body could only survive at sub-zero temperatures, and Nora's condition was now even more serious. In an effort to continue his wife's treatment, he constructed a suit which would now protect him in his altered state. Calling himself Mr. Zero, he began to rob several banks to earn money. He was eventually thwarted by Batman and Robin, but struggled on.

After faking his death, Gotham City believed he was dead. During this time, Fries rearranged his costume and returned, calling himself Mr. Freeze. To this day he continues to fight Batman and Robin.

Mr. Freeze was produced in 2004 by Mattel, so he may be hard to come by.

Yes, yes I know. This is an almost carbon copy of this Mr. Freeze shot. All I can say is, I know a good idea when I see one. When Chicago gets any amount of snow, the plows come out. What do they do with said snow? Pile it into ever larger mounds that take months to completely melt. What do I do with said snow? Pile my action figures in and take pictures.

Setup is exactly the same as the previous photo. Simply find a good place for the figure to stand, and then angle the lens upwards so he looks larger.

In Photoshop, all I had to do was desaturate the Cyan pallet, because his skin is almost radioactive in its intensity. Seriously, it's bad when your skin is more blue than the sky. With all the money and diamonds Mr. Freeze has stolen you'd think he could buy some sleeves?
