World War II

 Main article: World War II

During the Second World War, the Communist Party of the Soviet Union allied itself with the Western Allies to defeat the Nazi Party. This fragile alliance quickly fell apart once the war ended for ideological reasons.

Before and after the war, the Communist Party of the Soviet Union was infamous for its political repression, which was started by Vladimir Lenin and peaked under Joseph Stalin. This repression consisted of practices such as forced labor camps and mass executions.

Cold War

 Main article: Cold War

Following the Second World War, the Communists engaged in many unorthodox plots to gain control of the world, involving fantastical weapon projects, occult practices, and development of their own metahumans, to counter their Allied counterparts such as the Blackhawk Squadron and others. They also created very large and technologically advanced national military forces in many of they nations they controlled, and very large, secretive security and espionage agencies, including the KGB and its many affiliated organizations.

The Cold War ended with the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, since then, the influence of Communist ideologies in the world has diminished considerably, at least in the Real World.


Despite the atrocities committed by many major Communist parties, in wartime and the post-World War II era, there have been modern fringe groups, front groups, national organizations, and national governments, sharing the same ideology. In the metahuman community, there are supervillains that supported the Soviets, such as the KGBeast, NKVDemon, and many others, along with at least one superhero, Red Star.
