History

Godzilla: The Series

The Winter of Our Discontent

Cameron Winter was trying to collect great amounts of insurance money by having Godzilla destroy his clients' facilities. He did this by luring the monster to his facility with a radio transmission. Throughout the episode, Winter tried to enlist the help of H.E.A.T. member Randy Hernandez, claiming he would erase Randy's poor academic record and give him enough money to go to college. Randy took the bait and placed a remote transmitter on Godzilla's ear, but he was discovered and became overwhelmed with guilt. Randy then helped H.E.A.T. to expose Winter's plan, leading him to be arrested by the military.

An Early Frost

Winter later returned after having been let out of prison on parole, with a scheme to get revenge on Nick. He used some cells he harvested from Godzilla to create the Chameleon, which he used to frame Godzilla for various activities. He set a trap for Nick by tricking him into his old headquarters and forcing him to watch the Chameleon destroy Godzilla. Nick eventually escaped and found that Cameron is broadcasting a mind control signal to the Chameleon from nearby H.E.A.T. headquarters. Nick confronted Winter at the H.E.A.T. headquarters, but Winter detonated several explosive charges in the building and left Nick to die. Nick escaped and recounted Winter's activities to the military, but Cameron was nowhere to be found.

Lizard Season

Cameron breaks three hunters out of prison and trains them to use his Lizard Slayers to kill Godzilla. He then gets H.E.A.T. involved by hacking their ship to attack him, but he is unsuccessful, as are the Lizard Slayers. When they are caught by the military, Cameron betrays the Lizard Slayers' pilots by claiming that they stole the machines. Greatly impressed by the Lizard Slayers' abilities, They then arrange to buy them from Cameron for a large sum of money.

Ice Cold Winter

Winter lured Godzilla into the waters near Newfoundland, Canada, where he ordered his men to freeze him with ice canons, and had them tow the monster away, as Cameron had secured the salvage rights to those waters so that he could take Godzilla legally in order to clone him to create an army of mutant soldiers. Unfortunately, H.E.A.T. arrived, and used their N.I.G.E.L. probe to free Godzilla and sink Cameron's ship.

Godzilla: The Series

Since Godzilla's emergence, Winter made a habit of testing the latest Solstice Technologies military vehicles and equipment on him. Wherever Godzilla went, Solstice tech stood against him, and eventually, Winter was able to outfit him with a "Neural Stimulator", which agitated the beast, but successfully brought him to Solstice's headquarters. There Winter tried to drive off Godzilla's handler and old college rival Niko Tatopoulos. Nick attempted to assert that Winter had no right to try and capture or control Godzilla, but Winter asserted that Godzilla was without an owner, and he could do as he pleased. Despite this, Nick and the rest of H.E.A.T. freed the "fire breathing lizard" from the Stimulator, and it proceeded to raze Winter's entire operation to the ground.

Wish they'd bring this guy back, or at least create a new character like him. I quite like the idea of a Lex Luthor-esque human villain in the Godzilla franchise. Lots of potential possibilities.

They should just kill him off in a situation where he's forced to face the errors of his actions.
