History: Yes, Captain Cold is a kooky villain. Still, he is not without his charm. Captain Cold is one of the Flash’s biggest nuisances – nuisance because unlike other opponents, Captain Cold does not want to destroy the Flash or conquer the world or just leave a bunch of dead bodies in his wake. He wants to defeat Wally West, either through outwitting him or the use of his nifty freeze-ray pistol.

It all started with a guy named Leonard Snart stealing a theoretical memoranda on the Flash’s amazing abilities. Using this as the basis for a juvenile scheme, Snart either stole or created his signature weapon (I’m not sure which) and set about trying to best his target. Snart would rob banks, using his freeze ray to make the steel vaults so brittle he could knock them over with a solid kick, steal some cash, then wait to do battle with Central City’s champion. As far as hobbies go, it certainly wasn’t the most law-abiding, but at least it beats selling crack.

Snart was routinely beat by Barry Allen (the second Flash), but he always escaped from prison to wreck more havok. Then Allen died heroically during the Crisis on Infinite Earths, and Snart lost his interest in crime. The normal police couldn’t catch him, and he had no intention of moving to Gotham or Metropolis. Fortunately, a third Flash, Wally West, arose to defend the people of the Twin Cities, and Captain Cold could once more battle the best. The former gives people nightmares, and the other is, well, really kinda kooky.

Recently, Captain Cold sold his soul to the demon Neron. Neron sent Snart’s body back to earth, soul-less, with the similarly soul-less Rogues, to spread death and misery on the mortal plane. The Flash outwitted Neron though, and the Rogues got their souls returned.

While Captain Cold possesses a similar weapon to that used by Mr. Freeze, they really are nothing alike. Mr. Freeze is a monster, and Captain Cold is just a guy who likes to commit crimes dressed in an outlandship costume. Freeze is a killer, Captain Cold is a thief and a vandalizer.
