That's the way I read it too. Additionally, I believe the first incident created Victor's fascination with ice while the second incident galvanized his obsession.

Perhaps, but it does make sense. If he can't survive at temperatures warmer than freezing, and has been basically a living hunk of dry ice for years, then it would suck to touch him....

Good annual. Worth the $4.99. I hope this means Snyder will use Mr. Freeze again in the future.

So how did she get the damage on her hand that resulted in the two blood circles? I read it as the the first sequence is what he told his psychiatrist while the second is what actually happened. But we don't know the actual accident that caused her to be damaged.

I just looked at both the first framing sequence and the second one, and in the first one he looks younger, the second one both Victor and his mother looks older. Plus she says "we're off to the contest again." The two blood circles could have happened anytime before he pushed her in.

She cut herself because she was brain-damaged.

I liked this book. It actually made Mr. Freeze interesting to me.

I've always considered him a real D-list character, but now I'm actually interested.

But the reliability, or unreliability, of Freeze is a major point of the story. Nora isn't his wife and his mother's death wasn't an accident.
