Slowing down the
Fastest Man Alive is no easy task, let alone stopping him cold in his tracks.
But it's all in a day’s work for Captain Cold. Cold and calculating.
That’s the best way to describe Leonard Snart, and it’s how he approached
the job. Get in, get out and if anybody gets in the way, deal with them. No
fuss and no muss. It was simple and it worked. At least until a certain
scarlet-colored speedster interfered.
technologically advanced freeze gun and donning a signature blue and white
parka, Leonard became Captain Cold, one of the Flash's
most chillingly dangerous foes. Whether on his own or leading the gang of
Central City villains known as the Rogues, Cold approaches the job at hand
with an utter lack of emotion. His only care is getting it done as efficiently
as possible. And yet, for a criminal, Cold is surprisingly ethical. He follows
a strict Code of Honor: no drugs, no senseless violence, and above all, no
killing women or children. He’s brought that code to the Rogues, convincing
them that if anyone breaks it, they risk bringing the hammer down on
themselves all that much harder, and with members in jail, the gang is less
cold-hearted nature and generally icy exterior, Snart does care about one
thing more than anything else—his younger sister, who he has gone to
extremes to defend and protect. His unparalleled mix of honor, loyalty, greed
and ruthlessness make him one of the most unique villains in comics—but
never mistake him for anything but. Get in the way of the job, and Captain
Cold will chill you to the bone... Literally.

Jesus DC... No
wonder Batman villains became so famous. Some of the other DC villains
are painfully generic. Did a 6 year old come up with the concept and name for
Captain Cold? If you asked me to review this character when I was 5 years old, I would've told you that this character was BORING. So... let me get this straight, hardcore DC fans. Cpt. Cold dresses up at Santa and shoots people with ice guns? A mall Santa
gone maverick? I think the main villainous attribute of Captain Cold, is that if you
speak his name in public (as a real life human)... you will never ever get laid.
This also goes for discussing "high level" Captain Cold reset spam
combos in Injustice 2 in public. Don't do it.
In fairness... Cpt. Cold's Injustice 2 inclusion was unexpected, as his obscurity actually made him a decent choice for the roster. NetherRealm's updated take on the
character makes a lot more sense than his... previous, completely laughable
"mall Santa" attire. NRS did a good job with his visual design, but his animations are still pretty terrible.
