Colonel-General Valentin Shatalov
Shatalov was the KGB official who engineered the disgrace of Bukharin so that he could become the new Crimson Dynamo. With his team, the Remont Four, Shatalov wanted to restore Russia to its former glory, but setbacks forced him to change his stance. Shatalov helped Iron Man defeat a crazed Titanium Man when he remotely had the Dynamo armor, which was being piloted by Tony Stark, kill the Titanium Man. Because this sanctioning was not "officially authorized", Shatalov was reassigned and the Dynamo armor was taken from him.
The second and original Crimson Dynamo in the Ultimate universe is Валентин Шаталов (Valentin Shatalov). Since the end of the Cold War, Shatalov was based in Siberia. He stayed there for a long time; even his government was not confident that Shatalov was still alive. The Crimson Dynamo armor and other super-soldier components were stolen by Rutskaya and Ivan Kragoff. In error, the Dynamo battled the Fantastic Four, who were looking for Susan Storm. However, he was able to explain the purpose of his mission to them. Together, they came to Kragoff's facility and saw Rutskaya's super-soldiers, who were equipped with Crimson Dynamo armors. The mutant Rutskaya was destroyed in a nuclear explosion. The Invisible Woman rescued Shatalov, who then said goodbye to the Fantastic Four.
