Red Star is a character from the A Real American Hero series.

Red Star was a grizzled veteran of the Soviet Union's war in Afghanistan. When he came back, many people have perceived him to have become meaner and a different attitude. That funny look in his eye when he looks at you might be meaning he's psychotic but there's no way to prove that. Still, his superiors must have seen something when he was given the opportunity to command the Oktober Guard. Or perhaps it was a fluke, but when he saw that chance, he took it. It is his belief that the Oktober Guard represents the best Russia has. He himself is a member of the Soviet Naval Infantry's Black Sea Regiment. He wasn't going to let any glory hound take over Russia's elite.

Red Star was born in Odessa, Ukraine when the country was still part of the Soviet Union. He was exceptionally bright, and became the youngest chess master in Odessa at age seven. He even became a published Pushkin scholar and coach of the pistol team at the Dynamo Sports Club in Moscow.



A Real American Hero continuity

Marvel Comics continuity

The comics series from Marvel Comics deviates from most continuities by having Red Star already hold the rank of Colonel.

Animated continuity

DiC animated series

Voice actor: Brent Chapman

Note: Possibly due the Soviet Union's dissolution, Red Star was never referred to by name at any point in the series. As a result, his title was officially changed to Captain Krimov.

Furthermore, without the rights to several characters, DiC Entertainment was stuck with Red Star as the only Oktober Guard member (or at least until Big Bear showed up in season 2). To get around this, he was presented as an operative in an exchange program, and very much an honoree member of G.I. Joe.
