A Russian supersoldier idea

Found after years, I still like this. So putting it here among mental notes for possible superhero game...

It is said that the People’s Soldier died fighting in Afghanistan in the 1980s, but there are many who believe that he still lives, quietly working for the advancement of world socialism. There are some who believe that he was never really one man to begin with, but a cadre of enhanced commandos wore the mask of the red star.

Hammer and Sickle, the only publicly-known survivors of the Miracle Workers, deny this whenever interviewed. Their daughter, nicknamed the Tsarina by the Russian popular press, refused to work with the current administration and now lives in the expat community in London, where her inherited strength and agility are rarely tested by a life of partying.

And, of course, there are always rumours of the Kremlin seeking to revive the People’s Soldier Program. Some claim they have already managed to do so, while keeping their new enhanciles out of the public eye. Certainly, some of the leading members and supporters of the administration have bodyguards whose lean and athletic look does not fit the traditional “wall of muscle” style, and there are stories of Russian agents displaying unusual abilities in a variety of recent conflicts.


  1. Sounds good. I'd play that. As long as he doesn't turn out to have been Hydra all along!

    1. Well of course, that's a ridiculous notion...
