Icer is a character from the 1980s cartoon series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe by Filmation.

Bio

Appearing in only one episode, "The Ice Age Cometh", he is an evil warrior who serves as Skeletor's northern agent who resides in the Arctic-like northern regions of Eternia. He has an eskimo-like appearance, with a furry hood, and has an ice-blue body which appears to actually be made of ice. His powers are to freeze any living being simply by touching them, as well as being able to melt himself into a water puddle in order to travel under closed doors and various surfaces. He can also camouflage himself into icy surroundings, and has power over ice and snow. His main weakness is that he is unable to withstand heat.

He is the main villain of his singular episode, in which upon Skeletor's instructions, he takes over the Eternian weather station and infiltrates Eternia with a snowstorm. Voiced by John Erwin in a cold, monotonous voice, which makes for an interesting contrast with his surprisingly witty and often humorous dialogue. He is thus a memorable character, appearing dark and menacing while simultaneously possessing an aura of wit and humor.
