- "My cryostasis shut off when the locks did. I... I need to be cold. 'Below zero,' he said."
- —Nora Fries[src]
Nora Fries is the wife of Victor Fries, a criminal active in Gotham City. At some point, Nora became a patient at Arkham Asylum. She was kept in a cryostasis chamber due to having MacGregor's Syndrome.
The prison break
After Deegan released all of the patients to distract the heroes pursuing him, Nora was also released from cryostasis. She scoured the building in search of the freeze gun her husband used in order to get her body temperature back to 196 degrees below zero. She was interrupted by Caitlin Snow, who proceeded to turn into Killer Frost. Nora blasted her with the freeze gun, knocking her down. As Oliver Queen and Barry Allen arrive to her aid, Nora runs off, despite "Barry" using his superspeed against her. It is unknown if Nora managed to escape Arkham or was captured during the round-up of the patients.
During the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Nora Fries as well as everyone in the multiverse except for the seven Paragons, was killed in an antimatter wave by the Anti-Monitor on December 10, 2019, only to be restored a month later, after the Paragons and the Spectre created a new universe.
At some point in time, Nora contracted a rare illness and was put into cryostasis by her husband Victor Fries.
- Expert markswoman: Nora was able to use her husband's freeze gun without difficulty, being accurate enough to hit Killer Frost and knock her out briefly.
Behind the scenes
- In the DC comics, Nora Fries is the wife of Victor Fries and was diagnosed with MacGregor's Syndrome, prompting Victor to cryogenically preserve her to find a cure.

She debuted in the Batman: The Animated Series episode Heart of Ice (September, 1992), later being introduced to the comics in the one-shot Batman: Mr. Freeze (May, 1997).
