(Novels only) Captain Cold is a student at CAD Academy, brother of Golden Glider, and is the star of his family. He uses a Cold Gun to emit freezing blasts. Cold is as arrogant as his eyes are ice blue. He also subscribes to the one sided belief CAD Academy and Super Hero High School are rivals. Cold and his cronies, Heat Wave and Ratcatcher, repeatedly chant their school's unofficial motto "Live Evil." After hassling Steve Trevor at Capes & Cowls Cafe in front of Wonder Woman then blasting him, she used her Lasso of Truth and made all three of them confess their biggest fears out loud. Cold admitted be was afraid of losing. Weeks later, Cold told Trevor 'no hard feelings' then shoved a tray of food he was carrying into his chest.

Cold served as the team captain on CAD's team for the 100th Annual Super Triathlon. He was more smug than usual after CAD took the early lead in the A/P Test. Naturally, during the fire challenge, things got heated between Cold and Frost. By accident, Frost sent an icicle missile at him. He countered with a blast and knocked her over. After Super Hero High won the Triathlon, Cold threatened CAD should have won. Wonder Woman congratulated him on second place and bid him luck next time. He recited "Live Evil" but Wonder Woman responded with a "No thanks." She learned Golden Glider was a spy for CAD and was the one sending her anonymous notes and threats. It was so she could help CAD win the Triathlon and make her family proud of her. Cold continued to mess with Trevor at Capes & Cowls. He made an ice slick on the floor. Trevor slipped and fell. He even froze Batgirl's chair once but Cyborg purposefully spilled his chocolate milk shake all over Cold's plate.

Captain Cold, Ratcatcher, and Magpie did break dancing for Harley's Dance-O-Rama then heavy metal for her Battle of the Bands. While wearing one of Mad Hatter's pirate "Krazy" Hats, Cold had an uncharacteristically warm and pleasant smile. He was particularly hard to separate from his hat but quickly returned to his ornery self. To help take down the barrier around the Krazy Karnival, Cold did a wailing guitar solo.

(Shorts only) Captain Cold escaped from Belle Reve Penitentiary at some point and settled down in the North Pole. In the winter, Captain Cold interrupted Supergirl's admiration of the Aurora Borealis and claimed she was trespassing on his home then fired his Cold Gun at her. Supergirl knew he was supposed to be at Belle Reve and tackled him off the hill. Cold recognized her Mnemosyne Crystal as Kryptonian in origin and declared he could crystallize the oceans and create a new Ice Age. She threw punch but Cold hopped backwards and Supergirl was stuck in the ice. Cold changed the setting on his gun and blasted Supergirl with Kryptonite. He demanded the crystal. Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Frost, and Mera tracked Supergirl's communication bracelet and intervened. Batgirl morphed her Batjet into a snowplow. She pinned Cold to a hill but he wriggled his gun free and fired icicles at Wonder Woman. She blocked them with her Wonder Shield. He ordered Mera to stay back and fired icicles at Mera. She was amused and used her hydrokinesis to stop them and fired them back.

Cold ducked then traded shots and insults with Frost but neither could hit the other. He refused to surrender and tried to run away but Frost created a winding staircase. Wonder Woman flew to the top and cut him off but she caught his snowball grenade and took the blast. Cold created a slide and ran away but reached the shore. With nowhere else to go, he aimed his Cold Gun at the head of a polar bear and ordered Mera and Frost not to take another step. Mera waived a finger behind her back and raised a wave of water onto Cold then Frost froze it. Cold was confined in a giant ice block. A Metropolis Special Crimes Unit helicopter arrived and airlifted him back to Belle Reve Penitentiary.
