First appearance



After the fall of the Soviet Union, former KGB general Aleksander Lukin set about building a business organization to fund his shadowy efforts to destroy the United States, the country that had wrecked his homeland. He financed the company by selling a cache of specialist and superhuman artifacts he had looted from the archives of the KGB.

Kronas was presumably a successful concern, but was unimportant to the world at large until Lukin acquired the Cosmic Cube. Using its reality-warping powers, Lukin expanded the money available to Kronas, allowing them to buy Roxxon Oil, and many others, insulating them from prosecution in the US.[1]

However, along the way, Lukin was forced into an alliance with the Red Skull, who was sharing his body. Luckily for both, they were able to put aside their disagreements with the situation to focus on their goal - using Kronas as their weapon to bring about the destruction of the democratic capitalist system, and the death of its champion, Captain America.

Between Avengers Disassembled and the Siege of Asgard, the plan was enacted, but by the time of the Siege, Lukin and the Red Skull were dead, and Kronas was being investigated for ties to terrorism. If the company still exists, it is in a far lesser state than its glory days.
