    Cameron became the second Icicle when he joined Wizard's Injustice Unlimited during a time when the American public had turned against their heroes and a law that forbade vigilante activity from going unpunished. Wizard's group got through Infinity Inc, the hired security at the International Trade Conference in Calgary, Canada. The splintered group of the Global Guardians didn't stand a chance and soon after, the heroes joined Wizard's cadre to wreak havoc.

    Meanwhile, Icicle was given a mission by Wizard to find the frozen corpse of Solomon Grundy. Icicle hypnotized Ice Maiden and forced Jade to help him during his travel to the Arctic Circle. The reluctant heroines were successful in finding Solomon Grundy and Icicle brought him back to Calgary. Wizard's plan was to blackmail the wealthy businessmen at the conference but the plan heads south when Hourman and his band of Justice Society of America members attacked. However, Cameron managed to escape.

    A short time later, Icicle joined Artemis Crock, The Dummy, Hazard, a new Harlequin, and Solomon Grundy in the Dummy's newly established Injustice Society. The Dummy wanted to murder the members of Infinity Inc. that did not become villains in order to make a name for his team. The Society's first target was Skyman and Harlequin was successful in killing him. As for Icicle, he went after Brainwave Jr. and Cameron believed that his attempt to murder Brainwave Jr. was successful but later, it turns out he wasn't and Icicle was captured by the police.

    Later on, Icicle fought against Stargirl, S.T.R.I.P.E., and Starman when he joined Johnny Sorrow's Injustice Society. Johnny freed Icicle from his prison cell.


    The character of Icicle was created for use in DC Comics by Roy Thomas, Dann Thomas, and Todd McFarlane. Icicle's first appearance is in Infinity, Inc. #34 which was released in January of 1987.
