Ivana Christina Borodin Molotova was a member of the Blue Trinity, a trio of Soviet speedsters created to counter the Flash. She later struck out on her own as Lady Flash.


Two Soviet scientists, Doctors Pytor Orloff and Krulik, were amazed at reports of the American Flash, Barry Allen. Orloff was interested in the benefits such powers would bring to society, whereas Krulik was only interested in the military applications.

They began working on a serum, which Orloff invented first. Krulik, however, was fed up because Orloff consistently used only animal subjects. Krulik wanted to test with human subjects. The Kremlin provided him with three children, but not before Krulik had tested the serum on himself. However, when he first used his speed, the friction from the air burned him alive.

The three children were Gregor Gregorovich, Boleslaw Uminski, and Christina. Orloff was left to oversee their upbringing. They became Blue Trinity. They were controlled by the army and stationed near Kiev. They were stronger and more loyal to the Soviet Union than their later counterparts, Red Trinity.


Blue Trinity was sent to chase the Flash and Red Trinity, who were fleeing the Soviet Union with Dr. Pytor Orloff, who in turn was being brought to the United States to help the dying Jerry McGee. However, they were defeated.

After Orloff had arrived in America, Blue Trinity again was sent by the Soviet government, this time to kill him. However, after a short battle with Red Trinity, he convinced them to leave in peace.

Blue Trinity had been hired by Rudy West to capture the Flash and take him back to the Manhunter's base in Siberia. However, their attempt was foiled by Red Trinity, who appeared at just the right moment.

Blue Trinity was betrayed by the Manhunters and imprisoned, then sold to Vandal Savage. Savage experimented with them, giving them Velocity 9.

Lady Savage

After Vandal Savage apparently killed the Flash, Christina briefly took on the identity of Lady Savage, then switched to Lady Flash when Vandal gave her a Flash costume he had confiscated. Her addiction to Velocity 9 kept her loyal to Vandal, but she quickly began to resist taking the drug. When the Flash miraculously recovered from his "death" and confronted Vandal, Christina was inspired to finally resist Vandal and switched sides. She attempted to return the Flash costume, but the Flash told her she had earned it.[1]

Salvation Run

She was one of the villains corralled as part of Operation: Salvation Run. While on the alien planet, Christina sided with Vandal Savage after he led her to believe that he loved her. However, she was cruelly disabused of this notion when she discovered that Vandal Savage planned on having children with the three other women in the group as well, regarding her as nothing but a pawn. She sided with the other female villains and was going to eject him from the group. But when the planet was attacked by Parademons and Lex Luthor unveiled his teleporter, sending all the villains, including Christina, back to Earth.


Christina witnesses both Savitar's return and death at the hands of the recently returned Barry Allen. Powered by the deceased followers of Savitar's cult, she sought her revenge by attacking both Allen and West. However, much like Savitar, when Barry touches her, Christina too disintegrates and dies.



Other Characteristics

  • On Salvation, Christina made a reference to "finally being clean." This may refer to her past dependence on Velocity 9, or it could refer to an undocumented dependence on some more mundane drug.
  • During The Flash (Volume 2) #51 and The Flash: Rebirth, her name is stated as Christina Alexandrova, further complicating the question surrounding her true civilian name.
