A Lieutenant Colonel in the Soviet Air Force, Anya Savenlovich was chosen to be part of the top secret Project Helios. Launched into Earth orbit in 1964, the cosmonaut reported an explosion in the second stage rockets and would not be heard from again for the next thirty-five years. Adrift in space, Savenlovich and her capsule were frozen, keeping her alive for the intervening years. Traveling across the stars recruiting Green Lanterns to form a new Green Lantern Corps, Green Lantern Kyle Rayner had met up with alien bounty hunter Hammeroon. The alien's spaceship detected Savenlovich's distress signal and at Rayner's urging, the two rescued the cosmonaut. After she was thawed out, the news of her long hibernation came as quite a shock to her.
Anya was given a power ring and agreed to join with Rayner and others to form his new Corps, however, after a disastrous mission and a betrayal, Kyle decided to disband his self-proclaimed Corp, take back the rings and return to Earth. He would need more time and experience before he would be ready to recruit a new Green Lantern Corps. Learning from Rayner that the Soviet Union she knew was long gone, Anya Savenlovich chose to stay in space. She joined with Judge Sool and Garl Rathbone in creating an intergalactic crime fighting team known as "The Corps."
Anya was created by Chuck Dixon and Scot Eaton in the two part graphic novel "Green Lantern: The New Corps".
Anya only appeared once more since the New Corps storyline in a splash page display within the Green Lantern Secret Files. She is depicted her alongside her crime fighting teammates "The Corps."
