Ace Chemicals is based in Gotham City. The plant is connected to Kane Chemicals, a company owned by the parents of Martha Wayne, which was then sold to Apex Chemicals, which then in turn became Ace Chemicals.
The plant is introduced in Detective Comics #168 (Feb. 1951) when, on the night of a heist of Ace Chemicals planned by the Red Hood gang, Batman learns of the gang's plan and intercepts them at the chemical plant. Batman confronts the gang's leader, the Red Hood, who is knocked into a vat of chemicals by Batman after the heist fails.
The Red Hood survives, but exposure to the chemicals leaves him with green hair, chalk white skin, and red lips. The Red Hood's disfigurement causes him to suffer a fateful psychotic break and he becomes the Joker. Over the years, the Joker has revisited Ace Chemicals several times, and on occasion has even used it as a temporary hideout.
Revisions to the incident have been introduced over subsequent decades. In "Mystery of the Red Hood" and The Killing Joke #1 (Mar. 1988), the Red Hood intentionally dives into the tank while trying to escape Batman; other depictions, such as the film Batman (1989), have Batman accidentally causing the Red Hood to fall into the vat.
"A Dead Man Feels No Cold" is the thirteenth episode of the second season, and 35th episode overall from the FOX series Gotham. The episode was written by new series writer Seth Boston and directed by Eagle Egilsson. It was first broadcast on March 7, 2016 in FOX. In the episode, Gordon and Bullock continue on their quest to stop Victor Fries, now dubbed "Mr. Freeze" by the media, with the help of his wife, Nora.
