There's a mystery afoot in Gotham City, and Batman must go toe-to-toe with a mysterious vigilante, who goes by the name of Red Hood. Subsequently, old wounds reopen and old, once buried memories come into the light.
Batman discovers a mysterious teen-aged girl with super-human powers and a connection to Superman. When the girl comes to the attention of Darkseid, the evil overlord of Apokolips, events take a decidedly dangerous turn.
Embittered by Superman's heroic successes and soaring popularity, Lex Luthor forms a dangerous alliance with the powerful computer/villain Brainiac. Using advanced weaponry and a special strain of Kryptonite harvested from the far reaches of outer space, Luthor specifically redesigns Brainiac to defeat the Man of Steel.
Mr. Freeze is living in the arctic with his cryogenically-frozen wife. When a submarine destroys her containment capsule, he has to find someone to "donate" a new heart for her. His search turns up one donor with the right blood type: Barbara (Batgirl) Gordon. Her kidnapping sends Batman and Robin on a hurried chase to free her in time. Written by

In the scene with Barbara Gordon's roommate in college, the background music is "Am I Blue", which has another connection to Batman. It also is featured in the animated Justice League: This Little Piggy (2004), in which Batman sings this song on stage in order to save a friend. Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero (1998) and Justice League are part of the same larger universe and continuity. See more »
When an explosion occurs bad enough to cause a huge part of the structure to fall, and Belson shoves Freeze away from him and runs, you can see it looks like Freeze gets completely buried. In the next shot, it shows only his lower half is buried. See more »
I have nothing but respect for the 1990's Batman cartoon series. It's dark, action packed, the animation is superb and the storylines very interesting indeed.
My favourite Batman villain would probably be the Joker but in the cartoon series I think Mr Freeze is probably the best.
There have been Batman cartoon series before this in the 60's and 70's. Mr Freeze did make appearances in both series but he was portrayed as an evil villain. In actual fact, Mr Freeze is not an evil villain. He has a good heart deep down and this movie portrays that wonderfully. Rather than making him into some sinister villain who wishes to freeze everything in sight the producers portrayed him as a tragic man who became a villain through little fault of his own. This is what makes this a good cartoon-it's very thought provoking.
Besides all that, it's an action packed movie with great action scenes in it. Check it out.
