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 Sunbird, 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) - As the two teams fought, Sunbird blasted the ground near to where Captain America (Jeff Mace) and Red Guardian were fighting, starting a number of small fires in the vicinity. When Whizzer fled with Fuchs, Red Guardian called a retreat. Night Witch opened the "People's Portal" and the Soviets vanished, either teleported or escaping under cover of the sudden engulfing darkness.
Comments: Created by Karl Kesel (writer) and Mitch Breitweiser (art).
Karl Kesel confirmed her codename which was then revealed in Red Guardian's handbook entry in OHOTMU Update#4.
She was a Soviet agent, but not necessarily Russian; she could have been from anywhere behind the Iron Curtain.
