History

Global Guardians

The princess of an isolated tribe of magic-wielding Norsemen, Tora Olafsdotter has the natural ability to create and manipulate ice. She joined the Global Guardians as Norway's member (replacing Icemaiden, Sigrid Nansen) after they promised to protect her people, but after the Guardians' UN funding was withdrawn in the wake of the Justice League's reformation as the Justice League International, her friend Green Flame (later Fire) talked her into walking up to a JLI embassy and asking for a job. Remarkably, in the wake of Black Canary's resignation and the abduction of several members, the short-handed JLI took them on.

Justice League

Ice's personality was an amusing mix of girl-next-door wholesomeness and innocent-abroad naiveté, which served as a contrast to the impulsive, even libidinous traits of her friend and teammate Fire. As a kind of duo, her friend and she had changed their names from Green Flame and Icemaiden to Fire and Ice.

Ice served with the Justice League International for years (remaining with the American branch even after a European branch was opened), occasionally dated Green Lantern Guy Gardner and even expressed an open crush (albeit unrequited) on Superman after he joined the team. Ice was even present at Superman's unfortunate death. She was one of the few Justice leaguers still standing after Doomsday, Superman's killer, had torn through the team.

Her fate caught up with her and she was killed by the Overmaster while under his mental influence.

Before her untimely death, Ice displayed enhanced powers. This was after a battle with her brother, who had tried to conquer Ice's homeland.

Ghost Appearances

Ice has appeared on several occasions since her death.

Fire and Cruiser are involved in an accident which leaves them cold, tired and snowbound. They swap their life stories, and as she begins to drift into unconsciousness, which would be fatal following her concussion, Fire sees a vision of her late friend Ice, who helps her decide to live. It is not revealed if Ice was a ghost or a figment of Fire's imagination, but Fire awoke to a warm burning fire and she and Cruiser had traded sitting positions.

Ice's spirit once again appears. She and several other deceased JLA members are resurrected by Felix Faust. In the end, she sacrifices herself again to save the JLA from his dark magic, and recites the same final words she spoke when killed by the Overmaster.

Guy Gardner and Ice (art by Adam Hughes)

Either the spirit or an illusion of Ice appeared in I Can't Believe It's Not The Justice League, in which she was (possibly mistakenly) damned to Hell or a dimension similar to Hell. After Fire and Guy Gardner negotiate her release, Fire looks behind to see that Ice is following while they leave, which violates Hell's Orpheus clause, causing Ice's spirit to vanish. Together Guy Gardner and Fire mourned the again-lost Ice, even though they had never been entirely certain that this manifestation was really her. It is implied that Ice vanished to Valhalla.

Resurrection

In Birds of Prey, Barbara Gordon's team, on mission in Azerbaijan, discovers Ice unconscious within a Rocket Red exosuit which they wrest from the possession of an underworld figure, Kerimov. With Kerimov hiring the Secret Six to transport the exosuit, the Birds of Prey and Secret Six would come to blows after Big Barda and Huntress capture it. Kerimov plans to use "the resurrection of a goddess" to manipulate the Russian people by playing on their superstitions about "ice princesses", and to use her great power to make himself a powerful ruler. Creote awakens the lifeless Tora. However, an enraged Ice unleashes her wrath upon both the Birds of Prey and Catman's Secret Six; she seeks to avenge her own murder. Huntress' mention of Guy Gardner in addition to a hard slap brings Ice back to her senses, while Deadshot dispatches Kerimov (who, as her savior, retained some influence over Tora). Eventually, Ice leaves the country in the company of the Birds of Prey.

She later meets up with Fire at a facility belonging to the United Nations-affiliated intelligence service Checkmate, as they talk about old times and try to catch up on the current ones.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

Ice-Magic: Ice can, at will, project in various forms quantities of ice and snow through her hands just enough to down an opponent. She can create platforms of ice upon which she can skate. Before her initial demise, she was powered-up mysteriously (later revealed to be the result of the Overmaster). She was able to generate larger amounts of ice and snow, and gained super strength and the ability to fly. After her resurrection in Birds of Prey, Ice's powers seem incredibly destructive, expelling people from the building she's in as she awakens with bright white eyes, and conjuring a massive icy figure before her as well as controlling the weather to some degree, by causing the beginning of a blizzard far stronger than those known in that area.

Abilities

Combatant: Above average hand-to-hand combatant.

Strength level

Although her strength is nowhere near as the powerhouses, Ice has been shown to bend steel with her bare hands after her exposure to the Overmaster's powers.

Notes

  • Ice's surname literally translates to Olaf's Daughter.

Trivia

  • Ice was insecure whenever Wonder Woman was around Superman, always wondering if she could ever measure up to the Amazon Princess.

  • Ice's spirit reappears when she and several deceased JLA members help the team defeat Felix Faust. In the end, she sacrifices herself again to save the JLA from his dark magic, and recites the same final words she spoke when killed by the Overmaster.
  • While under the influence of a hunger entity, Ice once confessed that in Norway she routinely ate baby seals. [1]

Appearances in other media

  • Ice appeared in the 1997 live action made-for-TV movie pilot Justice League of America. She was played by Kimberly Oja.

Ice Hockey

Up to date as of February 02, 2010
(Redirected to Rink article)

An Ice Hockey Wiki article.

Diagram of a hockey rink.

The rink is the icy surface on which a hockey game is played. It is specifically designed for the game, of a rectangular shape with rounded corners and surrounded by a one metre (40 inches) wall called the boards.

Contents

Dimensions

There are two standard rink dimensions in use worldwide. One is used in North America, while the other is used everywhere else.

In North America

North American rinks usually follow the National Hockey League's standard specifications, them being 200 ft × 85 ft (61 m × 26 m) with a corner radius of 28 ft (8.5 m). The distance from the end boards to the nearest goal line is 11 ft (3.4 m). The distance from each goal line to the nearest blue line is 64 ft (19.3 m). The distance between the two blue lines is 50 ft (15.0 m).

The IIHF specifications

Elsewhere, the rink dimensions comply with the International Ice Hockey Federation's specifications: 61 m × 30 m (200 ft × 98.5 ft) with a corner radius of 4.2 m (14 ft). The distance from the end boards to the nearest goal line is 4 m (13 ft). The distance from each goal line to the nearest blue line is 17⅔ m (58 ft). The distance between the two blue lines is also 17⅔ m (58 ft). The wider surface of the IIHF allows a more open play.

Lines

Five lines are drawn on the ice. Those lines are drawn from one board to the other on the width and are used to regulate play and divide the ice into several zones.

The main line is the center line, typically referred to as the red line due to its colour. It splits the ice surface in two equal parts and is used to judge icing calls. The center line is a think one, and in the NHL, it contains alternate rectangular patterns to help readily distinguish it from both blue lines, two lines that mark the boundaries of each team's own zone. They are used to determine offsides.

Finally, near both ends of the ice are two thin red lines, the goal lines. Those lines are used to determine the validity of a goal.

Faceoff spots and circles

A hockey rink bears nine faceoff spots. Those spots are located as follows: one at the very center of the ice, on the center line, two at each end of the neutral zone and two in each end zone. Most faceoffs are taken at those spots. Except for the spots in neutral territory, all of the spots are surrounded by a circle, the faceoff circles. Those circles are usually red (except the center ice one, which might be blue). The circles at the end of each zone bear hash marks, used to tell the players where they can legally place themselves for the faceoff.

Goal posts, nets, crease and trapezoids

At the end of each zone, there is a goal, a metal frame and a cloth net in which the players must shoot the puck to score goals. The goal is six feet wide and four tall; the two vertical metal bars are named the goal posts; the horizontal line connecting both is the crossbar. The back of the goal is covered by a net used to collect the pucks shot into the goal. Flexible pegs are used to anchor the goal in the ice; their flexibility ensures that the goal freely moves should a player crash in it in the course of action.

Painted on the ice in front of the net is what is called the goal crease, a blue half-circle (truncated by straight lines extending 1 ft (30.5 cm) each sides of the posts). This area is reserved to the goaltender and, in many leagues, skaters are forbidden to enter the crease.

Unlike most other sports, players can freely skate and play behind the goals. So can the goaltender; often they will go behind their net to handle loose pucks and start new plays for his team. The American Hockey League instated an experimental rule for the first seven weeks of the 2004-05 AHL season by drawing two additional thin red lines behind the goal to the end boards to form a trapezoid - this shape gave it's name to the newly created zone. The rule's purpose was to allow a more fluid play by forbidding the goaltenders to handle the puck behind his net outside of this trapezoid. It also aimed at prolonging attacks, since this limitation of the goaltender's freedom also hindered his ability to clear the puck. Should a goalie nevertheless handle the puck outside of the trapezoid (and of course, outside of his crease), it immediately triggers a 2 minute penalty for delay of game. The ruled proved so successful that the league adopted it for the remainder of the season and the ones thereafter; the NHL and ECHL adopted it the following season.

In the 2008 Christmas Event, Jack Frost left many patches of ice around RuneScape. If a player stepped onto the ice, they would skate across until they hit something. This technique was also used to defeat Jack when the player found him without actually dealing any damage to him. Players can skate all year round in the White Lands.

Trivia

  • There used to be a glitch where a player could walk on the ice by doing the Give Thanks emote or by 'flying' a Toy Kite before stepping on the Ice. This glitch was fixed.

Water was a compound created from the elements of hydrogen and oxygen, and found on many planets in the galaxy. The surface of planets such as Mon Calamari and Kamino were totally covered in water, and on other terrestrial planets water was found in oceans, lakes, rivers, and aquifers. Water was a vital commodity for many life forms, while for other species it was poisonous.

Water in its frozen form was known as ice, and in gaseous form was called "water vapor", that formed crystals. Sometimes it would condense and fall as snow, sleet, or hail. Planets that experienced consistent ice include but are not limited to: Hoth, Mygeeto, Ilum, Rhen Var, Anteevy, Ota, Orto Plutonia and Polus.

Water farming

Groundwater could be extracted from aquifers through the use of water wells, tap trees,[1] and hydromech droids,[2] though sometimes it simply flowed naturally from freshwater springs.[3] It was usually processed by an aquifer purifier before being distributed for consumption.[4] On Coruscant, water was gathered and stored in giant artificial aquifers.[5]

On some planets, dams were built to form artificial lakes for the purpose of storing water.[6]

On dry land, moisture vaporators were used to harvest excess atmospheric humidity, collecting enough water to sustain three average humanoids, even on hot desert planets like Tatooine. Water survey devices were used to detect high levels of humidity, and moisture vaporators were usually placed in these regions for maximum output.[7]

Water harvesters were also used as another ground-based method of collecting water.[8]

Seas and oceans were also a major source of drinking water. On planets such as Belasco, sea water was run through a desalination process in order to make it drinkable.[9]

Throughout the galaxy, a variety of methods were used to convert sewage into pure water on some planets. The use of recirculation pumps was one such method.[10]

Once water was collected, it was distributed through large networks of irrigation canals, allowing stored water to flow into populated regions for consumption.[11].

Drinking water

Among many of its applications, water was popular for drinking, though not among all species.[12] Water was usually dispensed from sink faucets found in various types of buildings.[13] Water could also be purchased as a cheap beverage at a cantina,[13] or in containers from street vendors.[8] Free drinking water was rare in the galaxy.[14] As a result, it was often a target of smuggling and theft.[8]

Soldiers and other operatives usually carried drinking water in canteens,[15] or could sip water through a helmet pipestraw.[16]

The quality and purity of drinking water differed throughout the galaxy. On Tatooine, drinking water had a metallic taste and smelled strongly of dust and purification chemicals and contained bits of grit and sand.[8]

Most animals and some sentient species drank water directly from lakes and rivers, though not all bodies of water were safe to drink from. For example, the water of Lake Natth on Ambria was poisoned by the dark side of the Force.[17]

Other uses of water

Valuable minerals could also be mined from sea water. The world-ocean of Utapau, for example, was rich in minerals, salts, and chemicals, and was the only natural resource on the planet which attracted interplanetary trade.[18] By the time of the Clone Wars, however, less than 0.9% of the planet was covered in water.[18]

Water was used in cooking, either to boil food such as pashi noodles,[19] or used as an ingredient in beverages such as hot chocolate.[20]

It was also used in hygienic applications. Beings often utilized water through fixtures found in refreshers such as showers, baths and faucets to wash themselves.[13]

Water could also be used as art or decoration, in the form of elaborate water sculptures, fountains, and artificial waterfalls.[16]

For recreation and relaxation, some beings would swim in natural bodies of water, or in artificial swimming pools.[21]

Cultural significance

Water was very significant in some cultures, especially with those based on planets where water was rare. The Tusken Raiders of Tatooine considered water wells to be sacred places, and hence were vehemently protected.

The Cult of Varn was a religion on Kamar that had a great reverence for water.[22]

Other facts

Large bodies of water presented the risk of drowning to many of the air-breathing species of the galaxy. Devices called rebreathers could be utilized by such beings to breathe underwater.[23] The Yuuzhan Vong used gnulliths instead of rebreathers, which were also able to be used by other species. In 33 BBY, Alexi Garyn died by way of drowning, though not without the involvement of Darth Maul.[24]

Some blasters were known to malfunction after being submerged in icy water.[25] Lightsabers could not operate underwater unless specially modified.[26]

A poncho was a piece of clothing that could be used as protection against rain.[14]
