The Gremlin is a mutant who has inherited the genius level intelligence that his father, the Gargoyle, gained when his brain was mutated by radiation. It is unclear whether or not the Gremlin's intelligence is of a superhuman level.
Gremlin is the son of Russian scientist Yuri Topolov, also known as the Gargoyle, and is himself a mutant. The Gremlin inherited his father's grotesque appearance and superhuman intelligence. A brilliant scientist like his father, he created the high-tech gear used by the Soviet Super-Troopers (the immediate precursor to the Soviet Super-Soldiers), and for a time wore the Titanium Man power armor. He operated out of a secret base named Bitterfrost in Khystym, Siberia. He created a pet for himself named Droog, which was a talking monster created through genetic engineering.
The Gremlin first clashed with the Hulk at the Gremlin's secret base in the Arctic. Gremlin's men then captured General "Thunderbolt" Ross. The Hulk and General Ross later invaded the Gremlin's Bitterfrost base in Siberia to rescue the captured Major Glenn Talbot. The Gremlin and his pet Droog contended with the Hulk, but Bitterfrost was destroyed by S.H.I.E.L.D. Later, with the Soviet Supder-Soliders, Rom, and Starshine, the Gremlin helped defeat the alien Dire Wraiths. The Gremlin then officially joined the Soviet Super-Soldiers.
The Gremlin next appeared as the second Titanium Man, wearing a new suit of the power armor he had originally created for Boris Bullsky. With the other Soviet Super-Soldiers, he contended with the X-Men and Avengers in an attempt to capture Magneto. Later, the Gremlin fought Iron Man while wearing the Titanium Man armor. When he grabbed at Iron Man and the armored Avenger attempted to escape, his booster jets ignited the titanium armor. The Gremlin was apparently killed when the Titanium Man armor accidentally exploded, burning the Gremlin to death.
Full name revealed in Iron Manual Mark 3 Ä01.
