Out of all Batman's villains, Mr. Freeze is not only the most interesting and unique, but the most sympathetic. He's not a homicidal maniac or an agent of chaos, like the Joker. He never wanted to destroy Gotham or the World. He's not insane or corrupted by greed. All he cares about is finding a cure for his terminally ill wife. But his quest is so desperate and gone to such extremes that the haunting reality is he's created a monster he can never escape from. When I think of Mr. Freeze, I don't see an evil super villain. I see Victor. A cold, heart broken and lonely man who'd do anything for the one he loves.
That's what I tried to show in this image...

My vision of the Dark Knight. I find it a bit strange when his life gets glamorised or idolised. Or even envied. I think a person who dedicates and surrounds his life with rapists, murderers and monsters would become quite an angry, lonely bastard of a man. I love the character and the world he inhibits, but I've never seen it as a happy one.
