Real Name: Unrevealed

Identity/Class: Human (Russian), technology user

Occupation: Lackey

Group Membership: None

Affiliations: Answer (David Ferrari)

Enemies: Captain America, Nick Fury

Known Relatives: None

Aliases: Crimson Dynamo roughly translates into Russian as "Krashni Denamit"

Base of Operations: Khamiskan (former Soviet republic)

First Appearance: Captain America III#42 (June, 2001)

Powers/Abilities: The Crimson Dynamo's suit of armor was outdated and not in the best of shape. It granted its wearer superhuman strength, physical protection and flight, and could fire energy blasts and contained fire retardent foam.

History: (Captain America III#42) - The Crimson Dynamo was employed as a lackey of the Answer in Khamiskan, where the Answer was trying to take advantage of the political instability following the collapse of the Soviet Union. When Captain America entered the country in search of Nick Fury. Captain America took advantage of the Crimson Dynamo's inexperience with his armor, even managing to briefly set the armor on fire. Suddenly, Captain America was attacked by Nick Fury, who was under the Answer's thrall, and the Crimson Dynamo managed to capture Captain America in a bear hug.

(Captain America III#43) - The Answer and Crimson Dynamo strung Captain America up above a nuclear missile which the Answer intended to launch as part of a blackmail plot. The Crimson Dynamo tried to destroy Captain America's shield, but was (naturally) not strong enough. When Captain America burst out of his bonds, the Crimson Dynamo tried to join the battle, but Nick Fury, having regained his senses, ran him over with a tractor.

Comments: Created by Dan Jurgens and Bob Layton.

This Crimson Dynamo wore the same armor formerly worn by Dmitri Bukharin, which was built for him by the Gremlin. He might be the same Crimson Dynamo from Secret War#3 or Iron Man IV#7...who knows?

Easily the poorest showing from a Crimson Dynamo ever. Run over by a tractor?

A Crimson Dynamo wearing this armor appeared in JLA/Avengers#4, but since the characters were pulled from different points in time in this story it could've been one of his predecessors.

This Crimson Dynamo was mentioned in the Crimson Dynamo entry in the All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Update#2.
