Icicle was a pawn of Checkmate.

Angered by the Justice Society of America for putting his father, the original Icicle, into a coma, Cameron devoted himself to getting revenge on the retired team of heroes. Luckily for him, the secret organization, Checkmate, was very interested in recruiting his talents and were allowing him to pursue his vengeance at the same time. Icicle ambushed and murdered the Star Spangled Kid who was attempting to contact Chloe Sullivan, the Watchtower for the new generation of heroes. Once he had done that Cameron killed the Sandman next, assassinating him in his own home. He went through a list of the Justice Society, crossing off each one that he killed. His next target was Courtney Whitmore, the protégé of Star Spangled Kid, who had now taken the identity of Stargirl. They engaged in a duel and when Cameron finally got his chance to kill her, he was stopped by the Green Arrow.

He was forced to withdraw from his crusade, needing to recharge his powers with liquid nitrogen. He was intercepted by Doctor Fate, a mystic of the Justice Society's, and impaled him through the chest, murdering him before taking his magic helmet. He went back to his father's room in the hospital with the helmet, gloating about how he finally had the means to destroying the Society once and for all. He pulled the plug on his father, believing that his battle had already been won, before placing the helmet on his head.

He gained almost infinite power with the helmet and tracked the Society and the new team, the Justice League, to their headquarters where he fought them all at once without hesitation. Their combined strength proved too much for him though and he lost the helmet in the battle. He was arrested but secretly taken into custody by Checkmate, led by Amanda Waller. She explained that she had only used him as a tool to get her way and she pointed a gun at Cameron before welcoming him to the Suicide Squad. Then she shot him point blank, presumably killing him. Later, Chloe told Clark that Cameron was locked up in the psych-ward at Met.Gen, but when she went to check, she was told he was transferred to Belle Reve, although they had never heard of him there.



  • Cameron Mahkent was played by the actor Wesley Macinnes for two episodes of season nine.
