|“|| Let him know we're not a threat.|
Oh, yeah sure. Let's bring him in for a beer. You out of your mind?
— Mark Russell and Rick, about Godzilla
Rick is equally excitable and brilliant. He prefers spending time in a lab alone than a room full of people who don't understand his brilliance. He is also very dedicated to his work, so much so that Rick has been divorced three times, but he's at his happiest when dealing with the insanity of his job.

— Rick about his three divorces
Rick Stanton's career started as a communications engineer for SETI. Then in the 1980s, he worked as a satellite mapping technician for Landsat. Company whispers of a covered-up mission to Skull Island in 1973 piqued his interest so Rick reached out to Dr. Houston Brooks, one of the rumored leads on the project, and they became close friends. Shortly after Brooks introduced Stanton to Dr. Serizawa, Rick was offered a position at Monarch and later activated on May 24, 1989.
Initially, Dr. Stanton supervised the satellite tracking system for the Monarch Sciences network. Then he was offered a field assignment on Monarch’s underwater surveillance team at Castle Bravo and, being a longtime supporter of Brooks' Hollow Earth theory, Stanton lept at the chance to be close to the vast, unexplored ecosystem hidden within the Earth. Now as Monarch's leading early warning specialist, Dr. Stanton is in charge of managing a global network of sensor arrays and analyzing the sounds made by Titans to predict their behaviors, recording everything, and cataloging Monarch's extensive Titan audio forensics database dubbed "the Ark".
