Little is known regarding the past of Dimitri Bukharin, save that he was a KGB agent during the Soviet regime in what was USSR. Bukharin was the fifth man to don the Crimson Dynamo armor, directed to do so by his superiors in the Soviet military in order to join and spy upon the newly-formed team of superhuman champions, the Soviet Super-Soldiers. As the Crimson Dynamo, he adventured alongside Vanguard, Darkstar, and Ursa Major, until the three realized he was a spy and expelled him from their group.
For a time, Bukharin wore the armor as a solo operative for the Soviet government, and received a revamped suit of armor. This led Bukharin to clash the with armored American hero, Iron Man, who was on a crusade to eradicate weapon systems with technology similar to Iron Man’s own, technology which the new Dynamo armor was comprised of. Receiving a new set of armor, Bukharin was directed to serve on another government-sanctioned superteam, the People’s Protectorate.
Soon, however, political strife in the Soviet Union made the government reclaim the Dynamo armor. In doing so, Bukharin was assigned a mission to revive the former Soviet agent, the Titanium Man, a mission that led to a destructive battle in America between the two. Framing the Crimson Dynamo as performing a rampage against America, the government relieved Bukharin of duty as the Dynamo.
The Soviet Union was no more, and the non-armored Bukharin was still a member of the People’s Protectorate. His superiors in the Protectorate’s management gave him a new armor and code name: Airstrike.
Bukharin’s history as Airstrike remains to be revealed, including his activities now that the People’s Protectorate have become the superteam known as the Winter Guard.
