List of Russian superheroes


List of Russian superheroes

This list will attempt to chronicle "Russian" superheroes, many of which will hail from the Russian Federation, and the Commonwealth of Independent States. And quite a few will be anachronisms, throwbacks to the "bad old days" of the Cold War and the Soviet Union.

When it comes to fiction actually composed and written under the pall of Communism, a broader stroke will be taken with the definition of heroes and superheroes.
