Dr. Klipoff was a scientific researcher who specialized in the effects of deep freezing on living tissue. He had wavy dark hair, a goatee and typically wore sunglasses.

When Purdy Fallar's body was frozen on the moon, Klipoff received permission from Fallar's sister to take possession of his body. Klipoff believed that he could revive Fallar. Though he appeared to be successful, Fallar was generally non-responsive following Klipoff's procedure.

Years later, it was revealed that Purdy was alive, but in a generally vegetative state, which would seem to have validated Klipoff's method.
