  • This entry assumes that you’ve read Dr. Rachel Deming’s entry, where the context and backstory is.
  • Since there is very little material, this entry makes use secondary sources (Steve Gerber’s unpublished notes).

Background

  • Real Name: Fyodor Tostovich
  • Marital Status: Unrevealed
  • Known Relatives: None
  • Base Of Operations: Mobile
  • Group Affiliation: Operative for Max Kort
  • Height: 7’5” Weight: About 800 lbs
  • Eyes: Unknown Hair: Brown


Powers and Abilities

Tostovitch is an enormous, very muscular and athletic man – it is likely that his size and musculature were enhanced. He’s a well-trained fighter and operative. His armoured costume includes an exoskeleton further increasing his strength, wrist repulsors and boot jets. It’s a sort of super-light Iron Man suit.

Apparently, Kort would frequently detail a few Cybernoids to operate along with the Soviet.


History

Tostovitch used to be an agent of the KGB, possibly with minor physical enhancements. After the 1991 coup, he found himself in hot water and with his political enemies on the rise. He was forced to flee, and stole a prototype battlesuit on his way out to facilitate his new career as an international mercenary.

As “Supreme Soviet”, he came to work for American millionaire Max Kort, hunting victims of the Theta virus with the potential to acquire superhuman powers. He had a few encounters with the Exiles, a group with similar objectives. Though the individual Exiles were no match for him, they did success in spiriting a promising subject, college student Amber Hunt, before Tostovitch could kidnap her. 

Angered by this failure, Kort used Tostovitch for an off-the-cuff experiment, to see what would happen if a person not infected by the Theta virus was subjected to the Deming process. Though he developed even greater strength and size for a few seconds, the Russian was reduced to a skeleton by the treatment seconds later.


Description

According the writer’s notes, the Supreme Soviet was 6’6” and 275 lbs, but he was drawn as being even taller and larger than that – a giant. This might have been a Titanium Man reference. The notes describe the Soviet as non-superpowered, but it’s doubtful whether that’s still the case in the published material.

Given the writer’s description, one also gets the impression that the costume was supposed to be actual armour, covering Tostovitch’s body. Perhaps the flesh-coloured area were meant to be coloured silver.


Personality

Caricature threatening Communist soldier using Cold War jargon. Tostovicth apparently hoped to get rich enough to finance a counter-coup and restore the USSR.


Quotes

“You are weak, American – like all of your breed.”
