Doctor Frost “In the Fiercest Battle of His Life!” (Prize; 1943)

Hailing from the great arctic north, Doctor Frost could project cold beams from his hands, freezing objects (such as an enemy’s weapon), creating ice sleds on water or enveloping himself in a sheet of ice so thick that it can withstand strong explosions. His ice powers could not work in hot, dry environments. However, even without these powers, he was a formidable fighter.
Doctor Frost had no secret identity and if he had a given name, it was never mentioned.  The character was created by Richard Steele and Ben Thompson. Today’s bonus holiday adventure titled “In the Fiercest Battle of His Life!” was originally published in Prize Comics #28 (Feb.1943) illustrated by Maurice Gutwirth. The Catacombs acknowledges "Comic Book Plus" as the source of this classic comic story.
