History: (Captain America: Patriot#2 (fb), BTS) - In September 1946 a Russian spy was working at the Harwell Atomic Energy Research Facility in Oxford, England, under the guise of atomic scientist Dr. Klaus Fuchs. British intelligence began suspecting his true status and that he was passing on atomic secrets, but needed time to make their case. The Russians sent in a deliberately high profile squad of super-powered Soviet soldiers, including Iron Comrade, to "kidnap him," either extracting him, or, if they failed to do so, to at least throw suspicion off him. Catching wind of the abduction, and with Britain's own heroes otherwise occupied, British authorities called in the All-Winners Squad, who took on the Soviet team as they attempted to escape with their "prisoner."
(Captain America: Patriot#2) - When the two teams fought, Namor gained the upper hand against the mechanical might of Iron Comrade, hefting his massive foe above his head. When Whizzer removed Fuchs from the battle, Red Guardian ordered a retreat and Night Witch opened the "People's Portal." The Soviets vanished, either teleported or escaping under cover of the sudden engulfing darkness, with Namor expressing disbelief that his foe, who moved with the speed and stealth of a tank, could disappear so easily.
Comments: Created by Karl Kesel (writer) and Mitch Breitweiser (art).
Iron Comrade was a Soviet agent, but not necessarily Russian, and could have been from anywhere behind the Iron Curtain. It's not confirmed whether Iron Comrade was a person wearing armor, or a robot of some kind. If the former, we have no way to know whether the wearer was male or female.
