(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#6 (fb) - BTS) - A massive man with criminal tendencies stole a Crimson Dynamo armor to launch a criminal career.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#5 (fb) - BTS) - The allies of Sergey Antonov offered two million dollars to the Crimson Dynamo to rescue their boss, Sergey Antonov, from the police.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#5) - The Crimson Dynamo put his armor on. Meanwhile, Punisher escaped from police, including Rodgers, Hammer, and Caron.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#6) - Dynamo accepted the first million dollars and said he'd take the second once Antonov was safe. He heard Daredevil was involved but he wasn't worried. Dynamo grabbed Dynamo from the top of a subway car, startling heroes Blindspot and Daredevil, then he took off, but Daredevil grabbed his armor and forced them to the ground. As Dynamo prepared to kill Daredevil, the villain was hit by a van driven by the Punisher. Dynamo immediately told Antonov that he would refund his money as the Punisher was too much, but he chose to stay when Antonov agreed to triple his payment. Dynamo opened fire on Punisher, who returned fire, but Dynamo managed to knock Punisher out.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#7) - Crimson Dynamo prepared to crush Punisher's skull, but Daredevil used a stick to exploit a weak spot in Dynamo's armor. While Dynamo opened fire on Daredevil, Punisher hit him with a concussive energy blast that set Dynamo's armor on fire. He screamed and collapsed, seemingly dead from his wounds.

It is possible that this Crimson Dynamo was one of those we have seen previously (in Captain America III#42, Iron Man IV#7, or Secret War I#3), but this is treated as a new character for the purpose of this profile.

Crimson Dynamo should be distinguished from:

Sergey Antonov

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#4 (fb) - BTS) - Sergey Antonov had a reputation as a notorious crime boss who once poisoned a cooked turkey, wiping out a rival and his entire family when they ate it.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#1 (fb) - BTS) - Antonov was arrested in America and set for trial.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#1) - As Antonov was loaded into the transport truck, prepared for his trial in Texas (as he was too well known locally), he promised Murdock he'd come for him in the future, and he spit at the lawyer, missing. Just then, the Punisher fired a shot at Antonov, and Murdock knocked him out of the way just in time. The cops rushed Antonov into the transport van and they began driving, but the Punisher attacked again with a weaponized van, ripping the door off the truck. Daredevil and Blindspot arrived to help save Antonov's life.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#2) - Daredevil managed to get rid of the Punisher then joined the police and Blindspot in getting Antonov to safety. Antonov was bragging about the American justice system considering him innocent until proven guilty, then Antonov's men attacked the van, knocking it aside and saving Antonov. He instructed his men to threaten civilians to the heroes would be distracted while he got to safety, but Daredevil and Blindspot rushed after him. The villains were taking civilian hostages when Punisher arrived, firing to kill.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#3) - While his men battled Daredevil, Antonov was protected from Punisher by Blindspot, who was soon overwhelmed in the fight. Antonov hit Punisher with a brick to the head then fled on a nearby roof. Punisher followed and pushed Antonov off the roof, but he grabbed Punisher, taking him with him.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#4) - Daredevil narrowly saved Antonov from falling to the ground, but Antonov ran for it, making a phone call to his men and demanding they hire someone to protect him. Daredevil battled Antonov, choking him until Blindspot arrived. When Blindspot reported that Punisher was still alive, Antonov called the heroes fools.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#5) - While Punisher escaped from police (including Rodgers, Hammer, and Caron), Blindspot and Daredevil forced Antonov to ride with them on the top of a subway toward the airport.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#6) - Antonov was grabbed from the subway by Crimson Dynamo, who his men had hired, but Daredevil grabbed his armor and forced them to the ground. As Dynamo prepared to kill Daredevil, the villain was hit by a van driven by the Punisher. Dynamo immediately told Antonov that he would refund his money as the Punisher was too much, but he chose to stay when Antonov agreed to triple his payment. Antonov watched Dynamo battle Punisher, and Daredevil briefly convinced him to run from the fight with him as the Punisher would kill him. When Dynamo knocked Punisher out, Daredevil knocked Antonov out then went back to help Punisher.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#7) - Antonov woke up to see Daredevil and Punisher battling the Crimson Dynamo, who soon seemingly perished from his wounds. Antonov ran for it.

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#8) - Antonov arrived at an access tunnel to the airport and broke his way through a locked door to get in. He killed two security agents then disguised himself in one of their uniforms. In the airport, Antonov was surrounded by police and took a hostage, but Blindspot (using his invisibility) and Daredevil knocked Antonov out, then sent him --on to face justice in Texas.

Rodgers, Hammer, and Caron

(Daredevil/Punisher: Seventh Circle#5) - Rodgers, Hammer, and Caron were among the cops who responded to a shoot-out with the Punisher. They opened fire on the vigilante, who escaped into a building, and then they went to search for him inside, but Punisher easily got the upper hand and defeated them.
