No. Let's look at the characters you mentioned. Magneto: "MY OPPRESSED MINORITY!" Jackal: "GWEN!" "CLONES!" Two-Face: "CHANCE/ THE NUMBER 2!" Harry Osborn: "FATHER!" "Spider-Man/Peter!" Batman villians: " MY OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER!" Smythe: Sociopath/ FATHER!!! Richard Fisk: FATHER!!! Lady Deathstrike: FATHER!!!! Harley Quinn: MISTAH J!!!!! What makes Mr. Freeze unique is instead of "NORA!!!", he's "Nora." He has been utterly destroyed by what's happened to him. He's a remorseless killing machine, the worst thing that could happen to a person. I'm not a fan of him, but he's far from generic. Also, Arnold's Christmas was just "We have to save Leech...I mean we have to prove to Dil that Santa Claus is real...I mean we get Plutonium...I mean we have to prove to Virginia that Santa is real...I mean we have to reunite the family!" Every Christmas special is about family, which annoys me for two reasons. 1. Her'es the REAL meaning of the main Winter holidays. England 100 A.D. "Ahhh, honey, it's cold outside! Quick, get a log to set on fire and all our tribesmen, so we don't freeze to death before we go on the hunt! BUT MAKE SURE THEY BRING FOOD! I was going to make Hanukkah and Christmas jokes, but not sure if that would be a good idea. Their meaning is kind of obvious, so let's skip to... 1850 AD "HONEY, WE'RE RICH! Let's spend as much money on our kids to make us love us even more without everyone else judging us!" 2. Why is it so important that a close friend or family isn't enjoying the holidays? That always seems to be the moral of these episodes, which raises a few questions. Would Arnold and the other characters not find their friend's daughtter if it wasn't the holidays? What about all the people who can't be with their families at ANY time during the year that the character doesn't know? They can just go do whatever they're doing? How come the brotherhood of man only extends to the character's social circle? I'm not saying it was a bad episode nor that it was bad that the creators made it. I'm just saying it's not the breathless drama of the human race you're describing it as.
