Synopsis for "The Cold Truth"
Ice Goddess Tora’s body is covered with ice and her skin has turned blue. She is subconsciously freezing the environment around her and either cannot or will not speak. Fire tries to talk to her, but the heat from her flames causes Tora to recoil. She is still enraged from having defeated the Metal Men and lashes out at her friend. Fire is desperate to make Tora stop she doesn’t want to hurt her, but neither will she let herself be killed. Tora’s transformation restores memories that she had long repressed about her father and her true family.
Tora’s people had been a clan of Norwegian Gypsies called the Is Bygd who lived outside of Lillehammer, Norway. She had been born with the power to create cold and ice, but her father Marius told her to suppress and hide her abilities. He was the son of the clan’s leader and knew that Tora’s powers marked her as the reincarnation of an Ice Goddess, a “Chosen One” for the Is Bygd. He feared that the Clan’s leader (Tora’s grandfather) would try to use her to further his own petty criminal schemes.
Tora’s powers became more evident as she aged so Marcus escaped with his family to Germany. The clan eventually caught up with Tora and Marius when she was thirteen and living in Munich. Her powers surged killed those who were trying to abduct her, but her father was also caught in the icestorm. The last thing he said to her was “Always be careful. Be quiet. Be… be calm.” The memory of his words shocks Tora into regaining control of her powers and senses. Her transformation dissolves and she collapses to the ground overwhelmed by the emotions brought on by fighting her best friend and repressed memory of how she accidentally killed her own father.
In Chicago, the other team have finished investigating the dormant OMAC lab when Magog appears and attacks Captain Atom. The horned warrior claims that he is on a mission to kill the Captain.
