Winter (Wildstorm)
Real Name: Nikolas Andreyvitch Kamarov
Search for 'Winter (Wildstorm)' on Amazon


Powers:
Winter isan energy absorber capable of absorbing heat or rechanneling energy directed at him, including kinetic energy. He can use this energy for his own energy blasts or convert it to physical strength. He also been shown to increase his body's durability (to the point of being able to survive in space unaided) heal rapidly and fly at high speeds. He is also able to track the energy signatures of machines and other energy wielders. There is a limit to how much energy Winter can absorb after which point he will begin to take damage.

Bio:
As a young boy growing up in frigid Siberia, Nikolas Kamarov saw gymnastics as his way out. After great effort and struggle, he achieved the first step toward his dreams: a position on the Soviet Olympic team. After discovering how the rest of the world lived, his regard for the Soviet State turned to deep resentment. But an unsuccessful attempt to defect placed him in the hands of Moscow authorities and at the mercy of an impending judgement.

He was forced to join the Soviet Spetsnaz. After becoming hardened by the horrors of his service, Nikolas was wounded during the ill-fated occupation of Afghanistan. Oddities in his medical records attracted the attention of Stormwatch, and shortly thereafter the United Nations took the opportunity to activate Kamarov and bring him into Stormwatch.

It was speculated that Winter was the son of Zealot (from the WildC.A.T.s) as evidenced in the 1995 Zealot-Voodoo Skin Trade Special comic. This speculation was initially due to the psychic oracle character Providence telling Zealot that she would be reunited with her long lost child during the issue's adventure. While others mistakenly believe that her child is a young girl that she tries to protect from Daemonite warriors, the one time Zealot speaks to Voodoo about her child, she is cut off before she revealed the gender of the child she left in the care of a Russian couple. Not seeing her child (a boy) there, she confronts Providence about this. The oracle then tells her that all she needs to do is look before her to see her true child. At this a helicopter appears with U.N. Forces, and StormWatch reinforcements, to help rescue the collected children and Winter steps out asking Zealot if she needs his help. She then looks at his white hair (an unusual trait for humans in WSU) and hears his Russian accent, and realizes that it is Winter that is her son but keeps this knowledge to herself. This was supported by the fact that Winter's age matched the hypothetical age of the child Zealot had with John Colt. The fact that the child Zealot was to be reunited with's age was never revealed led to open speculation.

Winter was a part of all the Stormwatch teams since the beginning of the series, eventually becoming field leader of Stormwatch Prime. His years of loyal and proven service to Stormwatch came to a tragic end when Skywatch was overrun with an alien menace (from the Alien film series). Using the last ounce of his strength, he piloted the orbital platform into the sun. However, he did not die, but became a living part of the sun. Trapped in eternal agony and enraged by the cruelty on Earth, Winter wanted to destroy it. The Authority were forced to cage him inside the sun.

As a result of the Worldstorm event, Stormwatch, including Winter, is alive. It is as of yet unknown what parts of his past are still canon. He has a supporting role in the new Stormwatch PHD series written by Christopher Gage.
