Happy Thursday Gamers, Geeks & Friends! Thank you for tuning in to this week’s multi-verse TKO battle where we pit 2 characters from different games, universes, series etc against each other in an all out battle for supremacy! This week we will feature Mr. Freeze from Batman and Subzero from Mortal Kombat. Let’s get ready to rumbleeeeeeee.
In other versions of Ultimate TKO Thursday I would go over stats or abilities. Since I am pitting a comic/movie character against a video game/movie character I will instead provide a brief synopsis of their history/abilities then jump into the battle: Ready?
Mr. Freeze is a DC Villain from the Batman series that was a formidable opponent for the caped crusader. He started as Dr. Victor Fries a scientist employed at Wayne Enterprises (I feel like a lot of villains worked for Wayne Enterprises lol) who (according to your source material) pretty much failed in his mission to save his wife Nora. As a frenzied, mess he vowed to take revenge on those that he believes caused his freak accident and killed his wife. Because of the accidents with his freeze experiments, Dr. Fries has to wear a suit that keeps his body temperature at the sub zero level. This suit consequently also bestows upon Fries added strength and durability.
Subzero is one of the cornerstones of the Mortal Kombat franchise. According to lore the original Subzero named Bi Han met his untimely end by another cornerstone; Scorpion. After his demised the Sub Zero we’ve seen in past titles has been his brother Kuai Liang. Both brothers are a race from Outworld known as Cryomancers and they are able to manipulate ice. Subzero is also trained in the martial arts and can fuse his ice moves with his lightning quick strikes for a deadly combination.
Freeze points his new weapon at the cold assassin. ” I hear that you’re some sort of ice wizard.” Freeze laughs. Sub zero moves his head from left to right and Freeze can hear the crack of the ninjas neck. Subzero’s glare becomes constant as he builds up the energy in his palms. Freeze can feel the temperature change and the see the balls of ice form in Subzero’s hands. Freeze starts firing his twin guns at Subzero launching frozen ice chunks and a freeze beam at his opponent. Subzero counters with dodging the ice chunks and launching his own barrage of icicles at the freeze beam detouring its accuracy. “Ah, you’re a clever one aren’t you, no matter.” Freeze says as he starts firing again. This time the ice chunks hit its target. Freeze watches as the particles of a once frozen Subzero decorate the the sky and fall to the ground. “That was anti climatic.” He responds. Freeze uses his immense strength to through a boulder on what is left of Subzero.
Subzero appears behind Freeze using Tombstone Teleport , that allows him to freeze himself and fall back unto the floor, and freezes the floor below Freeze’s foot using the ground ice attack. The ice clone had distracted his opponent and now he was sliding across the floor. Subzero starts attacking furiously throwing his ice clones, ice burst and hitting Freeze with a Frost Hammer. You would think that this ninja was a part of the NHL! “What is this?” Freeze says as he can start to feel his durability fading, the hits of ice are starting to hurt. “How is this happening?” Freeze says. He manages to maneuver himself onto his belly and starts firing the freeze beam again. Subzero is able to successful dodge all of Freeze’s follow up attacks. The ninja uses Frosty to completely freeze the Dr. in a block of ice. He doesn’t say a word, only drags the ice block to his cooler display case with the rest of his conquests. FATALITY!!!!!
