The Bogatyri want to avenge themselves on the USA for the loss of the "Cold War." The four took the name Bogatyri after the "Valiant Champions of Elder Days" in Russian folklore.

The Bogatyri attacked and overtook a D.E.W. base in Canada in an effort to set off Dr. Volkh's "Quick Freeze Crystal" as part of Operation: Polaris, a plan to cause the entire continent of North America to be covered with a never-melting ice forever. Despite the initial defeat of Wolverine and the Avengers West Coast, the heroes rallied and the Scarlet Witch succeeded in destroying the "Quick Freeze Crystal." All four of the Bogatyri managed to escape, but apparently disbanded soon afterwards.[1]
