History: (Spider-Man: The Animated Series - "Partners in Danger, Chapter 11: The Prowler" - (fb)) - A
criminal was experimented upon to become super-strong; dubbing himself
Iceberg, he set himself up a criminal operation in a rough section of
New York City. He became one of the Kingpin's lieutenants, but
eventually Fisk found him too hard to control. Among Iceberg's
underlings was a young thief named Hobie Brown.
Via his surveillance cameras, Iceberg overheard Brown chafing under Iceberg's rule while en route to delivering Iceberg's cut of his latest robbery, and planning to overthrow him. Once Brown was in his presence, Iceberg played the tape back for him, then used his freeze-ray to freeze Brown's feet in a block of ice. He told his men to throw Brown in the river.
Brown eventually returned, calling himself the Prowler and wearing a super-suit given to him by Fisk as a plot to unseat Iceberg. As Iceberg entered his secret lair, the Prowler destroyed his limo, sending Iceberg and his henchmen rushing back out. Iceberg engaged the Prowler in hand-to-hand combat, but was shocked to find the Prowler's suit made Brown even stronger than him. Iceberg escaped when Spider-Man intervened and attacked the Prowler. The Prowler soon returned, and invaded Iceberg's base. Iceberg froze him solid with his freeze-ray, but the Prowler melted through the ice, smashed the freeze-ray, and defeated Iceberg. He later put Iceberg to work as his manservant. What became of him afterwards, when the Prowler gave up his life of crime, was unrevealed.
Comments: Created by John Semper, Terence Taylor, Dell Barras and more (see Appearances list for most of the artists).
Iceberg was voiced by character actor Lawrence Mandley.
It's kinda weird that the Spider-Man cartoon introduced an
unnaturally-pale super-strong African-American crimelord when Tombstone
had already appeared on the show, but maybe since he'd turned up earlier
in the season, they didn't want to use him again?
Profile by Minor Irritant.
Earth-92131's Iceberg, icy crimelord, has no known connections to:
crimelord Iceberg surrounded himself with henchmen. When Hobie
Brown defied him, he sent two of his men to throw him in the
river, but Brown escaped them. Later, they unsuccessfully defended
him from Brown, who had become the costumed Prowler. Eventually,
they were compelled to serve him when the Prowler defeated and
usurped Iceberg. What became of them and Iceberg after the Prowler
gave up crime was unrevealed.
Iceberg's men wore heavy parkas to stay warm in Iceberg's
icy lair, and carried laser pistols.
