Mikhail Gorbachev was the leader of the USSR from 1985 to 1991.

During his tenure, he first refused to accept a 'Star Wars' satellite hijacked by Kobra.[2] Soon afterward, Kremlin-affiliated agent Bad Samaritan stole plates to print dollars and Markovian coins; Gorbachev rejected the gift and returned it to the American super-team Force of July when they raided the USSr for it, being the Premier's opinion that an American economic collapse would cause too many undesirable effects; however, Gorbachev was satisfied by the Samaritan's performance and, after meeting the Force and their allies Outsiders, he decided to create a Soviet team of super-agents.[3]

Gorbachev then tried to build up the Soviet Union's metahuman forces and teams starting with the People's Heroes, who were sent to help Mozambia, a Soviet country and economic contributor to the USSR, when it was attacked by the Outsiders.[4] Other Soviet-sponsored super-teams included Blue Trinity, Red Trinity, the Rocket Red Brigade, Soyuz and the Red Shadows, all of them formed to compete against America's metahuman population.

He also faced a lot of competition from hardliners during his tenure, even surviving assassination attempts by the Yakuza and the NKVDemon.
