   Born after the events of a new Communist nation, Alexander Zeratsky was within a family without a father, who fought and died in the Red Army (Soviet-Polish War in 1921). In the brink of a second World War and the invasion of Finland, Alexander was conscripted to the Red Army and placed in a rifle division. After the war, he was switched to a Rifle Guard division for his excellent performance with the infantry rifle, becoming a Sergeant of his platoon. The Battle of Stalingrad became his breaking point in which grew extreme stress over the loss of his men, but never the less survived the battle and later, the war. He retired from the Army and continued a regular civilian life.

   During the events of the Cold War in the 50's, Alexander, now 30 enlisted to be part of the Комитет государственной безопасности, or KGB, the Soviet Union's most secretive agency. Through various infiltrations and spying by other KGB members in the United States, Alexander was told to immigrate there as a permanent resident using a new name. Going back in forth
through other indirect routes between the US and the USSR, he was asked to volunteer in a certain criteria to join in a top-secret Superhuman project, focusing on mainly five "enemies of the Union" (Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman, Black Adam, and Captain Marvel). At this time, the serum project would take 20 years to be in full effect, reaching a critical point (or thought so as an "over-time" regeneration) to rival the United States' Superman. Along with the serum was a "soul crystal" inside his heart, using several particles from the powers of SHAZAM captured and found by KGB agents. He was injected with the serum and become unconscious. At this time, Alexander was put into a timed cyro-sleep status and sent to space in a pod with Yuri Gagarin in secrecy. With various equipment left with him stored in the locker, including a costume that would recognize his affiliation to the Soviet Union, he was sent off.

   Once in space, he was left and drifted away in which the pod will come back to Earth in 20 years via automatic destination. However, the fatal flaw was that the machine faced malfunctioning and the power cells died off a month later, leaving the Soviets blank in their only superhuman project.

   52 years later, the cyro-sleep was placed off course and finally wakes up. Throughout his time, he has used Solar Absorption as a power. He flies at lightspeed towards Earth to return to his mission or at least "adapt" to the new environment.
