The last couple of days have reminded me of the prophetic words of Dougie Powers, who was heard to exclaim: “It’s frickin’ freezing in here, Mister Bigglesworth!”  Still, our Midwestern cold snap has had the unexpected pleasant side effect of me considering those cold-wielders (or, to be more accurate, heat-removers, since there’s not such thing as cold energy) and which of them might be the (you should excuse the expression) coolest.  Could Bobby Drake out chill Frozone?  Could Princess Elsa freeze out Killer Frost?  And what about Tora Olafsdotter?  All these things and more make for today’s chilling query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would put my money on Wentworth Miller, in only for his amazing nasal delivery of Captain/Citizen Cold’s lines, asking: Which fictional cryokinetic could create the briskest cold snap of all?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. Polar Boy.
    In LSH 300 the double sized issue, as Ferro Lad’s brother was scanning different realities one was a nightmare. In order to defeat Computo, polar Boy generated Absolut Zero temperatures as he himself was both frozen and electrocuted by the dying compute at the same time.
    Right Matty? Please correct me if I made a mistake.
