Caitlin Snow has always seen her powers as a curse. For all the potential upsides that generating ice can have, her powers have altered her body and her mind, forcing her to commit heinous acts for survival– thus her other name, Killer Frost. As a member of the Justice League of America, Caitlin’s friends have given her a support network that she hasn’t had before, giving her the hope that her fate could change. Her curse could become a gift.
However, enter the Queen of Fables, Tsaritsa. She granted Caitlin’s deepest wish– to look and feel normal again. With her powers intact, no less. But that gift had a consequence. The more wishes Tsaritsa granted, the more powerful she became. And now she’s come to Earth in an effort to ascend Immateria, a plane where she’d be able to control the thoughts and imaginations of everyone in the world. And it’s up to the JLA to stop her…and Caitlin as well.
Check out the Beat’s exclusive preview of Justice League of America #24, out next Wednesday, after the jump.
