Joseph Stalin was a Soviet revolutionary and politician. He was the supreme ruler of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. He held the title of General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1922 to 1952 and Premier from 1941 to his death in 1953.
Leader of the USSR
In July 1945, Stalin met with the other allied leaders in Potsdam, Germany. Red Guardian, Captain America, and the Sub-Mariner defeated General Brinkhaus from taking over the minds of the allied leaders. 
His soul was condemned to Satannish's Hell after his mortal death. Stalin was brought back decades later, transformed by Satannish into Coldsteel. He stood nearly 9-feet tall and possessed immense power, enough to beat the Avenger US Agent nearly to death.
Coldsteel and the other members of the Lethal Legion fought on behalf of Satannish against Mephisto in a struggle to collect the most potent of souls for the Hell-Lords' collections.
