Red Guardian (Marvel)(03 - Tania Belinsky)
Real Name: Tania Belinsky
Search for 'Red Guardian (Marvel)(03 - Tania Belinsky)' on Amazon

As Red Guardian, Belinsky was agile and trained in combat, though she possessed no known superhuman powers. Red Guardian's belt buckle could be thrown like Captain America's shield, specially designed to do so.

After being exposed to radiation, Belinsky's form may have become entirely radioactive energy, though her new true form has not been seen, and her costume may act as body armor to contain her energy form. The true capabilities of her new powers are not known, though they don't seem to be as powerful as those of the Presence. She can form force fields and energy blasts from her powers, and can travel at warp speed, even through space. She can also absorb radiation. Belinsky can survive without food, water, air, or sleep. She is often under the mental subjection of the Presence.

Tania Belinsky was born in Leningrad, in the former Soviet Union. Tania became a young neurosurgeon and left the USSR at the request of Doctor Strange, adopting the costumed identity of the Red Guardian and joining the Defenders.

Tania fell under the influence of Sergei Krylov, alias the "Presence", a mad scientific genius who had become one of the most influential men behind the scenes of the Soviet government. He used a Chernobyl-like nuclear disaster to transform Tania into his super-powered thrall, currently called Starlight. Since her mutation by the Presence, Tania continually emits harmful radiation which she can harness for a variety of effects, including superhuman strength and durability, flight, and energy blasts.

Tania remains under the influence of the Presence.
