Batman and Iceman



Iceman was a no brainer with all the Mr. Freeze related covers to work from. As it happens, I am a big fan of the character so I was happy to work on this one. He has such a pure and simple look and concept, it was easy for me as a kid to get into his stories and imagine myself in his adventures during some of those cold New England winter weekends.

Iceman gained a little more notoriety with his inclusion in the Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends cartoon back the early 80's. There's another reason that I was a fan of the character - that show was appointment television for me. As cheesy as it was, it was still the best you could get for animated superheroes at the time.

I liked on the show how he could change into his ice form. He was normal when he created a block of ice and then would burst out as Iceman. I don't remember him doing that in the comic books. They should have put that in there.

I always wondered if people got hit buy the big chunks of ice that went flying when he did that.

I loved the Amazing Friends, too. Very fun series.

The Amazing Friends show is what got me into reading Spiderman...though I always found myself wondering where Firestar and Iceman were! LOL!
