 History


A resourceful woman shrouded in mystery, “Anna Zametova” has deep connections within the Russian Commonwealth. A spy by trade, Anna insinuated herself within Konstantin Kovar’s secret arm of the KGB. There, she learned of the nefarious experiments taking place in Science City, including the KGB’s attempt to breed a group of cybernetically engineered Meta-Men. Konstantin and his brethren sought to secretly take control of Russia while discredting the United States. To enact their plan, the KGB framed Pytor Raskov for treason and took over Science City, forcing the scientist to call Red Star back to his homeland. This was an attempt to secure Cyborg, using his technology to enhance the Meta-Men.

Anna teams up with Red Star in NEW TITANS #94-96 [1993].

Red Star uncovered the insidious plot with the help of Anna, who revealed her altruistic intentions. Anna insisted on helping the Russian super-hero, but refused to divulge her reasons for doing so. But sparks flew between the duo – in more ways than one! As the pair attempted to stop the Meta-Men, an explosion triggered a startling new power surge for Red Star. The Russian hero learned he could burst his body into flames as well as channel and redirect fiery energy. These new abilities help put an end to Konstantin Kovar’s attempt at a coup, but at a terrible price. Red Star’s scheming father executed Pyotr Raskov, who had raised Leonid since childhood. And Anna was forced to kill Konstantin – with a bullet through his head – as Red Star watched.

Unknown to Red Star, a handful of Russian scientists have secretly salvaged the remains of Konstantin and made him a cybernetic – perhaps brain dead – Meta-Man. Also unknown to Red Star, Anna is actually the descendent of the legendary Grand Dutchess Anastasia – making her heir to Russia.
