History

The phenomenon that Gail Simone has termed "Women in Refrigerators Syndrome"[1] refers to the use of the death or injury of a female comic book character as a plot device in a story starring a male comic book character. The term is named after an incident in Green Lantern (Volume 3) #54 (1994), written by Ron Marz, in which Kyle Rayner, the title hero, comes home to his apartment to find that his girlfriend, Alex DeWitt, had been killed by the villain Major Force and stuffed in a refrigerator.

During the Battle for Blüdhaven, Hal Jordan (having learned of Alex DeWitt's fate beforehand) battled Major Force and sent him to a hard-light constructed refrigerator in a similar fashion as Force done to DeWitt during the battle.
