Valentin Shatalov was an opportunistic politician in the last days of the Soviet Union. Knowing the collapse of communism was inevitable, Shatalov manoeuvred to a position where he would be involved in the lives of the state-owned super human champions, the Soviet Super Soldiers, and the current operator of the Crimson Dynamo armour, Dmitri Bukharin (now known as Airstrike.)
Shatalov framed Crimson Dynamo, staging his "rampage" in the United States when recovering the agent known as the Titanium Man. Using this as leverage; he appropriated the armour from Bukharin. Donning the armour himself, Shatalov became the new Crimson Dynamo and formed the team he called Remont-4, dedicating himself and it to returning Russia to the glory days of Stalin.
