Funny how you pick and choose what's acceptable to be kept mysterious and what needs to be spelled out for us when it comes to Batman 89.
No, there's a difference between mystery and loose plot threads. To use Alien as an example as I brought up Prometheus; it wasn't necessary to explain what the Space Jockey was in the movie Alien.. it was irrelevant to the plot. Just like how it was irrelevant to show Batman's training and all that. His parents murder was a part of the plot (the whole investigation by Vicki), so you couldn't leave it a loose end.

I was talking about Freeze...
