Have you ever wondered what would happen to your favorite villains, if they had an alternative back story? Instead of simply locking them away, if at their inception, we sought to understand them? If we chose to help them, as opposed to fight them?
What if society didnt deem them to be ‘bad guys’, and said “Hey, we can do more if you’ll let us help you.” Granted, if they chose this path, we wouldn’t be left with the dope comics, movies, and characters we see today. Or, would we?…
As we reflect on these questions, we decided to begin a series called “Did Society Fail Them?”. Here, we deep dive on some of your favorite villains. In an effort to understand them better, we will explore their origins, analyze some scenarios and finally ask that important question: Did society fail them?
We kick things off with Dr. Victor Freis, aka, Mr. Freeze.
His origin story is that of a romantic tragedy.
Listen and enjoy, all the while asking yourself – Did Society Fail Them?
