Batman Gets a New Superpowered Suit Worthy of an Action Figure

Batman gets a feisty new suit for a battle with Mr. Freeze in the villain’s One Bad Day one-shot.


Batman: One Bad Day – Mr. Freeze #1 sees the Caped Crusader getting a fiery new suit to take on the titular villain.


Set years ago during one of Gotham City’s coldest winters, the one-shot finds Batman clashing with Mr. Freeze, who, due to the city’s abnormally freezing temperatures, is able to live without wearing his containment suit. To counter the Frosty villain, Batman gets a suit that lights up on fire to counter Freeze’s cold weapons.
