Vassily Rossovich was the brother of the mutant villain Omega Red, as well as the director of S.I.C.K.L.E., the Russian counterpart of S.H.I.E.L.D..[1]

Following Omega Red's arrest at the hands of S.I.C.K.L.E.,[2] Vassily decided to use him to stage the assassination of pro-mutant military general Toma Zaslon.[1] During Omega Red's imprisonment at the Stranniy Corrective Labor Camp, he was injected with nanobots controlled by S.I.C.K.L.E. that could be used to cause him severe pain.[3] S.I.C.K.L.E. facilitated Omega Red's break-out from the labor camp so that he could kill General Zaslon, and Vassily communicated his brother throught he nanites in his body. Weapon X intervened and prevented Zaslon's murder. Sabretooth convinced Omega Red to turn on S.I.C.K.L.E., and they used Lady Deathstrike to neutralize the nanites in his bloodstream.[1]

Omega Red approached the S.I.C.K.L.E. Mothercarrier under the pretense of having killed General Zaslon, and confronted his brother. Feeling uneasy by Omega Red's declarations, Director Rossovich tried to activate the nanochain inside his brother's blood to no avail. Omega Red constricted him with his tentacles, prompting the S.I.C.K.L.E. agents to take action, but they were taken down by Weapon X.[4] Rossovich managed to draw out his gun and shoot Omega Red in the abdomen, freeing himself from his brother's clutches. When he reached one of the escape pods, he stumbled into General Zaslon, who was waiting for him. After she revealed her nature as a mutant, General Zaslon used a blast of ice to throw Director Rossovich out of the Mothercarrier and to his death.[5]
