Vasily Karpov was a Hyda soldier who woke up the Winter Soldier from his suspended animation in 1991 to retrieve a recreated Super-Soldier Serum from Howard Stark, which was used to expand the Winter Soldier Program.

Over two decades later, Karpov had retired and became a reclusive living in Cleveland, Ohio. He was tracked down by Helmut Zemo, who tied him upside down with his head in a faucet and treatened him in order to find the notebook with the trigger words used to wake the Winter Soldier's submissive persona. When Karpov refused to give him any information, Zemo left him to drown.[1]
