Alexander Nevsky (Earth-616) from Iron Man Vol 1 21 0002

Alexander Nevsky

As one of Anton Vanko's assistants, Nevsky lost his position when his mentor defected to the United States. Blaming the Soviet government, Tony Stark and Iron Man for Vanko's death, he secretly left for the US as well. Taking the name Alex Niven, he worked for Cord Industries both to rebuild the Crimson Dynamo armor and to make it a competitor to Stark Industries.[1]

Janice Cord soon sold the company to Stark after the death of her father. Alex fell in love with Janice, and sought to prevent Stark and Cord from becoming close to each other. Nevsky completed the new Dynamo armor and battled Iron Man.[2] The Titanium Man was soon sent to reclaim the armor. In the ensuing battle Janice was fatally wounded and died in Iron Man's arms.[3]

This drove Nevsky mad, although he seemed to hate Iron Man more than Titanium Man. He fled to Vietnam, and with Bullski and Radioactive Man became the Titanic Three.[4]

After a subsequent battle with Iron Man, Nevsky fled, and the Titanic Three were captured by the military.[5] It is believed that the KGB found him somewhere in Asia where they killed him and stole his armor.[6]



Nevsky built a new version of the Crimson Dynamo armor.
