Bio: Former Russian commissar and chief of the KGB, trained the Black Widow.
Notes: Bruskin has been referred to as "THE Commissar", suggesting it may be his codename... however this should not be confused with The Commissar (I) who appeared in Avengers #18
His name is sometimes spelled Alexei in the text.
