The Red Shadows were a covert military group under the former Soviet Union that acted as direct counterpart for the Suicide Squad.


Their earliest recorded appearance, they supported the Soviet-backed government of Vlatava against rebels led by Count Vertigo. After the failure of this mission, the entire team was replaced just before the Dragon's Hoard affair. Molotov and Bolshoi were also members of another Soviet group, the People's Heroes. It was implied that they were under the authority of the KGB.
