The polar opposite of fire manipulation would be ice manipulation. It has been used by superheroes and supervillains such as Iceman from Marvel Comics, Killer Frost from DC Comics, and Frozone from the Incredibles. Compared to fire manipulation, which is mostly useful in destructive combat situations, ice manipulation is less violent if used correctly. You could use ice to immobilize opponents by encasing them in ice, you can freeze a tsunami before it can reach a populated area, and you can keep your ice cream from melting. However, just like fire manipulation, ice manipulation also has its own external and internal weaknesses. Externally, ice manipulation is weak against hot temperatures, shatter opponents like glass when frozen to death, or cause excessive property damage during fights. Internally, ice manipulation can cause the user hypothermia and frostbite if used excessively or at too low temperatures.
