The Red Guardian is the Soviet equivalent of Captain America (I), the expression of the patriotic ideals and the figurehead superhero of their country. The first Red Guardian was a civilian who saw a child trapped in an exploding building, wrapped the Soviet flag around himself for protection, and ran into the building to save the child, who happened to be the child of a Soviet soldier. This act came to the attention of Stalin, who gave him the costume and identity of the Red Guardian; he was shown fighting against the Germans in World War Two, as any patriotic Soviet of the time would have. His history after the war is unknown.
