Base of Operations: Rochester, Minnesota

Equipment: A costume consisting of black boots, white sweat pants with black shorts and a white karate belt (for visibility), three layers on top plus black leather gloves and, of course, a mask. Oh, and a shovel, too.
Quote: "I wrote down all cold-based names I could think of: Mr Freeze, Icelad, Snowlad, Shoveler, Polar Bully, Captain Cold, Captain Icicle, Frosty the Boy Wonder. Then I decided that since I came down from the polar region, I would use the name my cousin teased me with."
