History

Overview

The Russian Federation (usually called Russia) is a transcontinental country extending over much of northern Eurasia (Asia and Europe). With an area over 6.5 million square miles, Russia is by far the largest country in the world, covering almost twice the total area of the next-largest country, Canada, and has significant mineral and energy resources. It also possesses the world's second most powerful armed forces and the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons.

Formerly the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic, a republic of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), Russia became the Russian Federation following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in December 1991.

20th Century

World War II

Following the outbreak of World War II, Russia became a target for invasion by the Nazi Germany, however they were frequently unprepared for combat in the cold winter climates of Russia and the superior numbers and fire power of the Russian army. During the war, Russia was also frequently visited by American super-humans and costumed heroes who sought to assist the country against the Nazi invaders.

In 1941, the Young Allies fled into Russia from Germany along with Agent Zero, a British spy they liberated. The Russian military provided them cover until they were able to reach China.[1] Later on that year as Russia was focusing on fighting back a Nazi offensive, the Sub-Mariner declared war against the surface world. Warnings to Russian authorities of Namor's threat were ignored and Russia found itself flooded when Namor and his armies attacked. However, the heroic Human Torch defeated Namor and stopped the invasion, reversing the flooding.[2] With Nazi Germany pushing into the Russian front, Russia was assisted by other Allied countries, which also included the involvement with many American superheroes. In 1943, the soldiers from Camp Lehigh were deployed to the region, and Captain America and Bucky uncovered a Nazi plot to invade Murmansk, and helped repel the invaders.[3] In the city of Dograd, female soldier Sonia Petroya assisted in defending her home. She became an instant celebrity and sent on speaking tours in the United States. She was targeted by the Nazi spy known as the Rabbit, who was in turn stopped by the Human Torch and Toro.[4] The Torch and Toro later returned to Russia to assist on the Russian front, repelling an invasion force led by Captain Klutz.[5]

Post War

Following World War II, the Soviet Union became an enemy of the United States over various disputes over occupation claims of liberated territories. Eventually this led to Russia entering a Cold War with the United States. During this period, Russia sent many spies and saboteurs to undermine American interests, and vice versa.

In 1951, a member of the Undersea Titans came to explore the surface, appearing somewhere in Russia. When the creature's moisture dried out it became an inert.[6] The Russian government assumed that the Titan was an American trick of some kind. It's fate is unknown, but it was likely forced back to it's ocean home or destroyed like other members of his race that appeared all over the world.

Modern Age

With the emergence of the Soviet Super-Soldiers, many Marvel characters had interactions and adventures in this region.


Earth-1610

Russia organized an attack on New York City using their agent Perun and his Liberators. When the invasion was thwarted by the Ultimates, the country disavowed their role in the attack.[7]

Later, in an unrelated event, Frank Castle entered the country and executed the underworld criminal known as the "Red Hammer".[8]
