Mr. Freeze is desperate to cure himself of a condition that requires him to be confined within a suit that keeps his body at an extremely low temperature. He’s convinced that getting cured will allow him to get back together with Nora, his estranged wife. This goal overrides everything else and has stripped him of any empathy or morality. As time goes on, he becomes less and less tied to his original goals, and more interested in villainy for its own sake.
