    Jordan Mahkent (Earth-2: Post-Crisis)

    You seem to think that power comes from other people's perception of you. From recognition or applause, but... That's not true power. Now, William, true power doesn't need to be seen. I've travelled across this country. I've hunted down everybody who played a part in Christine's death. Everybody who exposed her to the toxin that led her to get sick. And I did this because I, too, made a promise, William, to my wife as she lay dying in my bed that I would combat injustice for our son, for everyone's children.
    — Jordan Mahkent to William Zarick[src]

    Jordan Mahkent is a descendant of a powerful Norwegian family which possesses ice-based abilities from ancestors from Niflheim. Mahkent was also the supervillain known as Icicle, and the founder of both the Injustice Society of America and The American Dream.

    Early Life[edit | hide]

    Mahkent's arrest record

    Jordan Mahkent was born to Sofus and Lily Mahkent in Norway.[2] However, Sofus and Lily soon brought their young son to the United States, hoping to evade those hunting their family for their dangerous ice-based abilities.[3]

    Marriage and Family[edit | hide]

    At some point, Mahkent was in London when he first saw Christine in Trafalgar Square, who he quickly became attracted to. He would watch her sketch as they both ate lunch in the same park, but he was nervous to speak to her as there was already another man pursuing her. After killing this man, he finally gained the courage to speak to her, at which point she showed him drawings she had made of him as she was also attracted to him and was waiting for him to approach her. The pair later got married and had a son together named Cameron Mahkent.[4]

    Fall of the Golden Age[edit | hide]

    Battle of Los Angeles[edit | hide]

    Battle of Los Angeles

    On December 24, 2010, Mahkent and the rest of the Injustice Society lured the Justice Society into a trap at an abandoned mansion after discovering that Brainwave had started to question their mission due to seeing the world through his wife's eyes. During the battle, Mahkent impaled Starman with an icicle, but he managed to get out of the mansion with the help of Stripesy. The Injustice Society then went outside and Mahkent ordered Solomon Grundy to follow their car, but they managed to escape.[5]

    Vengeance for Christine[edit | hide]

    Christine Mahkent

    Christine worked at a public school which, unbeknownst to everyone but Bannerman Chemicals, had been built atop a former chemical waste dumping site, which resulted in her developing cancer.[6] In 2012, Christine was lying on her deathbed and said her final goodbye to Cameron before telling Mahkent to continue his mission and asking him to promise to destroy anyone who gets in his way. She then died in front of him, which resulted in Mahkent running out of the house and into the garden, where he let out a scream and froze his surroundings.[2] He then left Blue Valley and handed over leadership of the ISA to William Zarick so that he could travel across the country in search of the people responsible for making his wife sick, leaving Cameron to be raised by his grandparents. On his journey, he also observed many small towns which had been forgotten about such as Littleville, Colorado and Hatton Corners, Indiana.[2]

    After Christine's death, Mahkent founded American Dream as a way to reshape the United States in his image, naming his plan Project: New America.[2]

    Return to Blue Valley[edit | hide]

    In 2020, Brainwave called Mahkent, who was at a graveyard in London, to inform him that someone had attacked his son with the Cosmic Staff, meaning that there must be a new Starman. Mahkent was doubtful of this and told King that they will sort it out and to do nothing until he returned.[5]

    The next night, Mahkent returned to Blue Valley just after Brainwave's defeat at the hands of Stargirl. He arrived in a black car outside American Dream and went inside, pressing his hand on a hidden screen on the wall which opened a door to a tunnel system. He walked through, past Solomon Grundy, who was locked behind a metal door, to the ISA's headquarters where he was met by Steve Sharpe. Sharpe showed him footage of the person who defeated Brainwave, and he stated that he killed one Starman and that he could kill another.[7]
