Captain Cold Character Guide

Character Profile

“Let’s put you on ice.” –  Captain Cold

Real Name: Leonard “Len” Snart
Gender: Male
Species: Human
Debut: Showcase #8
Voice:

Stealing a technologically-advanced cold gun and donning a signature blue and white parka, Leonard Snart became Captain Cold, one of the Flash’s most dangerous enemies. Whether on his own or leading a gang of Central City villains known as the Rogues, Cold approaches the job at hand with an utter lack of emotion. His only concern is getting it done as efficiently as possible.

Captain Cold possesses a cold gun, which generates a cold field at absolute zero temperatures, completely draining molecules of their kinetic energy, preventing them from generating motion. The Cold Gun can also fire streams of ice as beams, creating ice wherever they strike. Cold is a skilled tactician and has led the Rogues for many years.
