Mr. Freeze

Freeze was the first idea I had for this whole thing and he may or may not be my favorite because of it. Since I thought about him so longer before I started drawing I ended up fleshing him out more in my head than any of the other characters. Even figuring out what he looks like under this armor (which you can see a bit of in the concepts) though I knew that wouldn't be shown in the final piece. 

In my version his accident obviously caused a lot more damage than just lowering his body temperature to where he always needs to be in a cryogenic suit. He's almost more machine than human now with a fading mind and cold heart (literally?). But by wearing his old overcoat and Nora's scarf it makes him feel attached to his former life and not be lost completely.
