The Soviet Super-Soldiers are a fictional super team in the Marvel Comics universe.


The Soviet Super-Soldiers were a superteam that was brought together by the Soviet government of Russia to be the counterpart of American teams like the Avengers and Fantastic Four. Professor Phobos founded this government program to locate and train superhuman beings in service of the state. The school's first student was Mikhail Ursus, who became known as Ursa Major. He was soon followed by siblings Laynia Petrovna and Nikolai Krylenko, who became known as Darkstar and Vanguard, respectively. These three mutants joined with Dmitri Bukharin, the fifth Crimson Dynamo, to form the initial lineup of the Soviet Super-Soldiers.

The three mutants later decided to sever their ties with the Soviet government, and expelled the Crimson Dynamo as he was still loyal to the KGB. The Gremlin joined the team for a time while wearing the Titanium Man armor, but he was killed in action.

Eventually, the team took on new members Blind Faith, Stencil, and Sibercat, and added former members of the Supreme Soviets: the third Red Guardian, Fantasia, Perun, and Sputnik, and the returning Crimson Dynamo. This team became known as the Winter Guard not long afterwards.
