Fictional character biography

The synthezoid originally known as Sputnik was a member of the Supreme Soviets. The team had been sent by the Soviet government to capture the Soviet Super-Soldiers, who were attempting to defect to the United States. Sputnik had been disguised by an illusion to appear as the Vision. Eventually, Captain America defeated the Supreme Soviets and freed the badly wounded Soviet Super-Soldiers.

Sputnik later changed his name to Vostok when the team became known as the People's Protectorate. Eventually the team broke up and merged with the Soviet Super-Soldiers to form the Winter Guard.

Powers and abilities
