This is not to be [[IThoughtItMeant confused]] with [[Film/TheWarriors Ajax's]] [[AssShove plans]] for you with a bat. Or [[Film/TheFifthElement meat popsicles]]. Often overlaps with Really700YearsOld, but the people from this trope rarely experience the time in-between freezing and thawing.

* Another Supergirl example is the first ComicBook/PostCrisis one known as Matrix appearing buried in the Antarctic for two hundred years, with the explanation in ''ComicBook/TheSupergirlSaga'' from the Franchise/{{Superman}} comic book titles of 1988 being that Lex Luthor of the Pocket Universe transported her there with a blanked memory, believing that the mainstream DC Universe Superman would be able to find her with his {{time travel}}ing abilities. However, such did not turn out to be case with that version of Superman, thus Supergirl remained frozen until the present day of 1988 in the mainstream DC Universe.

** Parodied in the episode "Prehistoric Ice Man", in which a man is discovered frozen in ice, is successfully thawed... and turns out to be from the unthinkably ancient year 1996. For those of you who haven't seen the episode, it's from 1998. Further parody and RuleOfFunny is invoked when the man returns home... only to find that his wife moved on and found a new husband which she has a biological child with that's 13 years old.
