Enemies: Lieutenant Lightning, Jack Knife
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: A castle of ice in an unspecified icy wilderness region of the Earth.
First Appearance: Smash! Annual 1969 "Lieutenant Lightning and the Thog Menace"
Powers/Abilities: Presumably Doctor Ice was extremely cold, but the only actual power he demonstrated was to control his Thog creations through a machine that projected his brainwaves out to them.
History: Doctor Ice appeared to be a being of living ice, who was evil for evil's sake. He created gigantic plant creatures he called Thogs, which he controlled through the power of his mind, and with which he planned to conquer the world. Unfortunately for him, Lieutenant Lightning of T.I.N. opposed his plans, destroying his creations with fire, and when the hero came for Doctor Ice he found that the flames appeared to have struck the villain through his mental link with his creations, leaving him a melted wreck.
("Lieutenant Lightning and the Thog Menace", Smash Annual 1969.) During a routine patrol, Lt. Lightning and his assistant, Jack Knife, spot a castle of ice that has sprung up in the middle of a desolate wilderness. In the castle, the evil Doctor Ice is preparing to conquer the world using gigantic creatures called Thogs. Dr Ice sends a Thog to battle the heroes, a battle which the good guys narrowly win. Faced by many more of the creatures and Dr. Ice's threats, the two flee to warn the rest of the world.
Dr Ice releases an armada of space capsules carrying the Thogs, but Lt. Lightning shoots down all but one of them. That last lands in London, where the two Thogs within rampage. The hero manages to block Dr Ice's control signals, leaving them directionless, and then burns them to ashes using a massive lightning bolt. Returning to the castle to confront Dr Ice, the heroes find him and his castle melted and no longer a threat.
