Aleksander Lukin (Marvel)

Search for 'Aleksander Lukin (Marvel)' on Amazon

Born in the Soviet village of Kronas some time in the late 1930s, Lukin's village was used by the Red Skull as a base of operations during the Second World War. When Soviet troops attempted to retake the town, assisted by the Western Allies' superhero team the Invaders (including Captain America and Bucky), Lukin's mother was killed in the course of the battle. The leader of the Soviet forces, Vasily Karpov, took the orphaned Lukin under his wing.

In the ensuing decades, Lukin became an important figure in the Soviet military and the KGB, rising to the rank of general. When his mentor, Karpov, passed away, Lukin was left in custody of a large cache of special projects developed over the decades, including the Winter Soldier. He sold some of these devices to the highest bidders to raise funds; in one instance, he sold weapons to the Red Skull himself, but refused to part with the Winter Soldier for anything less than the Cosmic Cube (which the Skull was not in possession of, and certainly would not give up in any case).

Five years after that meeting, the Skull finally recovered the Cube, only to be assassinated by the Winter Soldier on Lukin's orders. However, before he died, the Skull used the Cube to transfer his mind into Lukin's body, leaving the two men stuck together "like rats in a cage." Convinced that any use of the Cube only lead to misfortune, Lukin sent it away after he harmed a friend of his in a fit of rage, but not before using it to make the Kronas Corporation (Lukin's new legitimate business) even wealthier. The cube was then destroyed by the Winter Soldier, who realized who he was. Since then, the two have worked uneasily against their common foe, Captain America, even as the Skull wages a campaign for control of Lukin's body (Lukin vows to kill himself before allowing that to happen).
