Boris Vadim was a member of the Russian super-team Winter Guard, who faced Iron Man, Doc Samson and She-Hulk while they were investigating the assassination of Emil Blonsky, the Abomination in Russia.

He later helped War Machine to combat Skrull forces during the Skrull Invasion of Earth.[3]

Seeking political asylum, he flew to the USA and joined Red Hulk's mercenary group Code Red.

He later died while battling the mutated Igor Drenkov, who devoured him.


Boris wears a version of the Crimson Dynamo Armor.

  • Superhuman strength
  • Flight
  • Invulnerability
  • Electric and laser blasts


Crimson Dynamo Armor

  • Hulk Vol 2 #1 might not be the first appearance of this Crimson Dynamo. Considering the number of unnamed Crimson Dynamos, this is merely the first fully confirmed appearance of Vadim.
  • "Vadim" was first given as his name in She-Hulk Vol 2 #35 and "Boris" was given as his name in Hulk Vol 2 #14, making his likely name "Boris Vadim", although "Vadim" is not a Russian surname, it's a first name and can be used as a surname very seldom (like George Michael etc.). This was confirmed in Official Index to the Marvel Universe #14's entry for Iron Man: Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. #34.
