Mr. Freeze is scientist turned criminal who is forced to wear a special cryo suit after a lab accident changed his physiology, restricting his continued survival to conditions below zero temperature. Freeze's main weapon of choice is a blaster gun that emits a freeze ray. In the middle of July, Freeze finalized his latest plans to freeze Gotham City and rule over it as his own personal kingdom. He invited a new villain named Killer Frost to join him. He was secretly interested in her dual ability to emit cold and absorb heat as means to power the freeze ray on his airship. Batman detected subzero readings from a nondescript warehouse and investigated. Freeze was annoyed with his appearance but Killer Frost blasted him from behind and encased him in a block of ice. Freeze kicked him into the sewers underground through an opening in the floor. He thanked Frost for accepting his invitation then summoned two automated orb drones. While Frost was distracted, Freeze tasered from behind and bound her to a reactor device that powered her with perpetual heat and forced her to provide perpetual cold.
Freeze departed his warehouse hideout in a giant airship and began by freezing Gotham's bridge. Batman broke out his ice prison and took to the Batjet. He encountered Firestorm, who tracked Frost to Gotham, and formulated a plan. Batman provided air cover while Firestorm used his abilities to infiltrate the airship and disable the freeze ray. He took out the ship's force field with an electromagnetic pulse then ejected from the Batjet. He propelled through the airship's cockpit glass and kicked Freeze across the room. While Firestorm freed Frost, Batman and Freeze battled. As the airship dropped out of the sky, Freeze fell onto a girder. Batman threw a bola on him then administered a taser. Batman tried to steer the ship in vain. Frost created a strip of ice for the ship to use as a slide and land but it threatened to crash into the docks. Firestorm transmutated shipping containers into a giant baseball catcher's mitt. Freeze recovered and was about to pounce on them but Frost froze him solid in a slab of ice. Firestorm helped thaw out frozen parts of Gotham while the police took Freeze and his ship into custody.
Mr. Freeze froze part of Metropolis then fired an ice ramp up into the window of a jewelry store. Mid-heist, Batman arrived and fired his net gun. Freeze was pinned to the wall. Not amused with Batman's ice "joke", Freeze cut through the net with an ice blade hidden in his gauntlet then opened fire. Batman leaped behind a counter just as Plastic Man arrived. Freeze blasted Plastic Man outside into the streets and froze him against a building then froze Batman and the counter. Freeze took off in his snow ski. Plastic Man caught up to him in a Santa sled. Freeze blasted him and he crashed into the Batcycle. They caught up again and Batman fired his grapnel line. He wrangled Freeze then yanked him off. With Freeze tied up, they continued their patrol.
