History: Randy Lord works for the Cryonics Life Extension Institute. There, he applies his chemistry knowledge to projects for preserving human tissue through cryogenics. With current technology, human cryopreservation is not currently reversible. Several years ago, however, Randy Lord was the first person to return from such a procedure. Lord was anxious to prove that certain theories were sound and ready for the next stage of testing. Unfortunately, advances come slowly and require rigorous review and lengthy approvals. He decided to take matters into his own hands when he opted for the role of guinea pig. After hours, he privately configured the equipment to deliver an extremely short duration deep freeze to his own body. The exposure was intended to be so brief that no permanent damage would occur. He hoped that the chemical readings from his own cells would prove invaluable to the project. Unfortunately, Lord failed to enter the settings properly. His time of exposure was much longer than he intended. Randy Lord's body was subjected to enough cold that he probably should have been clinically dead. For whatever reason, he survived. Left with several cold-based powers from the accident, he never shared his experience with anyone. Randy Lord continues to work at the Cryonics Life Extension Institute but he also lives a double-life as the super-hero Icelord.

After the Protectors dissolved the team, they reunited six months later to confront a danger that faced New York City. Icelord made his debut as he joined with the ex-Protectors to combat Diablo's plan to take control of the population via his mind-control drugs. When the Protectors officially reformed, Icelord became a member of the team. He proved himself a valuable addition to the group. Later, Major Darkstar formed a new super-group, Retribution. As a close friend of Major Darkstar, Icelord left the Protectors and quickly accepted the Major's offer for charter membership on the new team.
Height: 6' 2"
Weight: 205 lbs.
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Blonde
Strength Level: Icelord possesses the strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engages in regular intensive exercise.
Known superhuman powers: Icelord is able to draw water from the air and convert it to ice. He can shoot ice missiles, create an entire wall of ice, and make ice cubes large enough to encase a full-grown man. He has also encased his entire body in ice to provide protection with "ice armor." Icelord is practically invulnerable to any form of cold damage. If attacked by a cold energy weapon, he can actually reflect the energy back at his attacker. Icelord cannot fly but he has the ability to glide to some degree. He is capable of slowing his descent by selectively freezing water particles around him.
Limitations: Icelord's body temperature has been permanently reduced to a bit less than 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. If he does not use his ice generation power on a somewhat regular basis, his body temperature continues to fall. He needs to exercise his powers or face incapacitation after a couple of weeks.
Abilities: Randy Lord has thorough knowledge of chemistry and works as a professional chemist.
