Alex Nevsky was the protégé of the original Crimson Dynamo (Vanko). After Vanko defected to Stark Industries, Nevsky's career was ruined. He soon defected to the U.S. to compete with Stark Industries under the name Alex Niven, but was forced to work for the KGB as the third Crimson Dynamo. He was later assassinated by the KGB for failing to kill Iron Man. The Crimson Dynamo Armor was confiscated.
