Mr. Freeze’s character model shown in the show bible for Batman: The Animated Series.

Despite the resurgence of Mister Freeze thanks to the DCAU retake of the villain, Batman comic editor Denny O’Neil wasn’t a fan and didn’t want to use him in his period of Batman books. At least not until artist Kelley Jones redesigned him into something that won the former Batman writer over. I can’t say I like the 90s look…a comment I’ve made so many times…but I have to give Jones credit for working to bring back a character he liked without being a jerk about it and O’Neil being a good enough editor to give his creators a chance to win him over. I wish comics had more stories like this.
