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

During his tenure, he first refused to accept a 'Star Wars' satellite hijacked by Kobra.[1] 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 URSS 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 personally the Force and their allies Outsiders, he decided to create a Soviet team of super-agents.[2]

Gorbachev then tried to buid up the Soviet Union's metahuman forces and teams like People's Heroes, Blue Trinity, Red Trinity, Rocket Red Brigade, Soyuz and Red Shadows were 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.
