History: The Soviet Superwoman, or Olga Yezhov,  was born in the rural USSR on an alternate earth where she worked as a farmhand on her kolkhoz (communal farm) in the years prior to World War II. After Hitler invaded in 1941, her village was rounded up by the authorities and given injections to stave off disease. In reality it was an untested form of super-soldier serum that killed everyone else in her village but her. Olga was given vast superpowers as her genetic code was re-written. Over time she had become super-strong and durable, invulnerable to physical damage, she gained flight and the ability to concentrate lasers from her eyes, superhuman speed, regeneration and increased longevity. When she was ready, they gave her a new suit and a new purpose: she became the Soviet Superwoman, hero to the people of the USSR. In 1942-1943 she smashed the German armies at both Stalingrad and Kursk, before moving towards Berlin and putting Hitler's war in Europe to an end. The Soviet army marched forward with her at front, conquering everything the German army had been forced to relinquish all the way to France. After dropping the atomic bombs to defeat Japan, the United States ordered it's bombers to attack Moscow. Olga intercepted the atomic bomb and brought them back to Russian scientists to replicate. The Allied forces negotiated a non-aggression pact with the USSR, giving them all of the territories in Europe. The war was over, and Stalin had won.

Over the course of the next decade of Cold War, the Soviet Superwoman was a champion to the common man. She disrupted terrorists and criminals, saved lives and fought against injustices large and small. In 1955 an alien civilization attempted to conquer the earth, but one of the key problems they faced was the Soviet Superwoman. After weeks of battle, the aliens blasted Olga into a portal, sending her far away through time and space. When the portal reopened, it had dropped her in the city of Angel Falls in the year 2009. Since that time she has had to adjust to a world where the USSR has fallen, the technology is superior and the USA is the dominant superpower. She is still a hero first and determined to find her way back home while also winning the hearts and trust of the people of Angel Falls by fighting against the forces of evil.

Here is a complete reference sheet for Soviet Superwoman, for use in Angel Falls. It contains both her statistical data and a brief history. Enjoy :D

The picture above is a wonderful depiction of Olga, very patriotic, by the talented :iconbambs79:!

"The Allied forces negotiated a non-aggression pact with the USSR, giving them all of the territories in Europe. The war was over, and Stalin had won". I think W S Churchill would have a thing or 2 to say about that. Superwoman or no Superwoman the British empire and the French resentence wouldn't go down without a fight after beating the Nazis.

Well in my parallel dimension, the D-Day invasion was a disaster thanks to the chemical and mechanized warfare of the Iron Chancellor. He was poised to finish off London when SSW stopped him and killed him (at least his physical body). France was left holding the bag so to speak so in the end the Resistance sided with the Soviets because SSW fought with them in Paris. When the war was over, France was liberated, but by the Red Army, whom they were immediately friendly towards. After the failed atomic bomb drop on Moscow, the US and British hastily signed whatever they needed to stop the war. Sir Winston did indeed have more than a thing or two to say however and was not pleased and Truman was immediately defeated the following election by Joseph McCarthy.

Ah-ha.... Obviously this is your universe so what you say goes. if in your world only Russia and Germany had superhumans I can't change that. But it's a rather underwhelming treatment of the british empire. Considering that
1: During the real war Churchill made a point of treating the soviets as allies rather enemies and had didn't try to drop a nuke Russia.
2: The second world war was thought on ideas over here. We didn't to fight Germany but did because it was right. This is like if at the end of Watchmen Rorschach had just thrown up his hands and said "Okay Ozimandius. You win". Out of character and underwhelming. Having decided to risk everything to crush fascism it makes no sense to surrender to an enemy without a fight. Imagine if the golden age Superman had threatened to flatten Russia if they didn't accept American rule after WW2. I think Stalin and the Russian people would have taken death over enslavement. I say this because it would be the same here. We brits have a long history of fighting bigger enemies and wining (including Russia at one point). I'm not saying we would have beaten a superwoman but that we aren't cowards who would calmly take forgien subjugation. "We will never surrender!"
3: Despite what very dumb americans think Britain is not ruled by America and so Washington couldn't hand over british freedom as a peace offering. Or that of neutral countries like Ireland, Spain, Switzerland, Portugal, Turkey Etc.

As you know I think the "Russians is evil commies who wants to take over the world" attitude is, at best, an ugly relic of the cold war. But reading about the casual (comical?) demonization then subjection of my race and knowing  that it's basically Olga's fault doesn't fill me with much confidence in that feeling. Respect cuts both ways is what I'm saying I guess. Still, thanks for taking the time to explain your ideas.

Well England wasn't subjugated by any means, and did in fact have it's own super-powered operatives (just not at the same power level). I understand it is it's own sovereign nation: it didn't take orders form the US and therefore wasn't part of the plan to nuke Moscow, that was a handful of men at the Pentagon and Truman. I had a short-story where Churchill met with Olga and got along despite the differences. She also stopped a major V-2 rocket assault from attacking London and helped the RAF when she could in the air. She considers England a pivotal ally during the War and it was their refusal to surrender that inspired her at times. They weren't conquered by the Germans and then they weren't conquered by the Russians. I have nothing but respect for the British, their people and everything they contributed towards the war effort.

Thanks. Sorry if that sounded bitter but I am a Welshman, there's a stereotype that we have short tempers and it's true in my family at least. I tend to see assume the worst in people due to years of disappointments even though I know making assumptions is never a good idea.

Did you write that story about her meting Churchill? If it's in your gallery I'll give it a read.

It's more of a mention going back and looking where she is in Tehran for the first big conference and Churchill presented her with a specially commissioned ceremonial sword commemorating the victory in the battle of Stalingrad, as a gift from King George VI to the citizens of Stalingrad and the people of the Soviet Union (which really happened with Stalin who handed it to Marshal Kliment Voroshilov...who promptly fumbled and dropped it). You have however stoked my interest in a story I have had brewing for sometime where she meets with him in secret at his country home in Norfolk towards the end of the war.

Cool. If you decide to go with this I'll be certain to let you know what I think :)
I take it that as well as Britain neutral countries such as Ireland, Spain, Etc. weren't handed over to Russia as being neutral and sovereign nations (and Spain just finishing up a civil war) the allies couldn't use them as peace offerings even if they wanted to. Sorry if I'm being pedantic here but that line "giving them all of the territories in Europe" does kinda suggest all of them. Even the neutral ones.

Hope that settles every thing. I might want to talk to you again in the future sometime. Probably about different stuff. I hope that's okay with you.

Going back to the idea of mutual respect I may as well throw in my bit by saying that as an animation student I really love the short animations made in the USSR during the 60's and 70's by people like Yuri Norstein, Ivan Ivanov-Vano, Fyodor Khitruk and Eduard Nazarov (I own the entire Masters of Russian Animation DVD set). It seems a shame to me that these great artist are (over here at least) only know to animation aficionados like myself.

Oh indeed she does. Her invulnerability is great, but she can be hurt...she isn't Superman. Bullets sting and anything larger (ie super-villains) bruises her or can snap bones. Mental attacks and magical attacks she really has no defense for. She breathes so gas/aerosol attacks effect her as does vacuum (though she has trained herself to hold her breath up to only about twenty minutes).

Take a gander through my gallery, she's been knocked around and beaten on more than one occasion.

She did, but her first experience with a lover of the same sex actually came during the war in the guise of the dashing French resistance member Claire DeLattre who saved her life. There was a great deal of concern within the Central Committee with Stalin downplaying and hushing it up considering she was almost single-handedly winning the war for him.

Yes, his name is Joe McAllen, the son of an Irish American butcher and a prostitute. He was born with an enlarged bones and organs, like his longs, hearts, and stomach, giving him a somewhat heavy appearance but also giving him great endurance and strength. At 18, two years before Peal Harbor, he became the world champion long distant runner.

After that he was asked by the U.S military to sign up for a group of special test subjects to create super solders. They wanted to find away to match Soviet Superwoman and Genocide but couldn't figure out how to make someone quite as strong as Soviet Superwoman or give them the power of flight. However, Joe with his already enlarge bones and organs aloud them to try something a little different.

They were able to make stronger and faster than any normal human, he can pick up something like tank with relative ease, and run close to 40 miles an hour. But Joe's biggest advantage over the two superwoman is endurance and adaptability. He can weeks without food, water, or even rest, he can hold his breath for nearly one whole hour, he is able to digest any organic material, even if it's raw or rotten. He no longer gets sick, and poisons and drugs have almost no effect on him except in massive qualities. And thanks to his reinforced skeletal system he can do things like fall from thousands off feet in the air and land without getting hurt, even if he does get hurt he heals much faster than a normal man and will be back on his feet in a matter of days even if the wound is normally a mortal wound. His body is so efficient that he barley uses the bathroom anymore since nothing he eats or drinks goes to waste.

However he is not invincible, if he gets shot in the eye were their aren't any bones, and the bullet hits the brain, he would die before he would get a chance to heal. He can also be hurt by both fire and electricity, but if you were to hit him with something like a baseball bat or even a sword it would just snap in two and he may make you eat both half's, through you butt.

I hope you don't mind if I use Soviet Superwoman in some of the stories I'm writing for Joe, but I have a really good idea for how to get the two too fight without Olga just being able to over power him. Because, like his name says, he is a Bastard.

I have a WWII version of Captain Sweden planned; from what I read here he would be a guerilla fighter*, hiding in the forests and doing hit-and run attacks against the Red Army and collaborators. Also, one of his side-kicks volunteered in the Spanish Civil War on the Republican side and then on Finland's side during the Winter War. This could complicate relations between the modern age CS and SSW; that is, IF he does exist in the Angel Falls reality.

*In his "own" universe, he's more like Golden Age Batman and the Phantom, fighting crime and German and (at least before 1941) Soviet spies, sometimes helping Norwegian and Danish resistance fighters. He's not sanctioned by the Swedish Government (same applies to the Modern Age successor).

SSW has a great many strained relationships with the Angel Falls superhero and civilian community due to her unique background. Communists are still not very well liked and SSW wears her colors proudly emblazoned on her chest.

Is the reality she lived in before the Rikti abducted her the same reality (time-line) she currently lives in (Angel Falls)? Or is the Angel Falls reality more liked OTL (Our Time Line), with Cold War, NATO etc? If the latter, has she tried to travel back to her reality?
Reply
:iconsoviet-superwoman:
Soviet-Superwoman Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2010
It is the latter, Angel Falls is more like the world of today. She did attempt to travel back to her own time at first, but upon realizing that it wasn't theoretically possible and given the problems Angel Falls was facing from super-human threats and crime, she opted to stay. Since falling in love with Walkiria she has made AF her new home.

Very good background. I’m currently working on my first story (the WIP version is in my scraps folder) and was wondering if after I finish that story you’d be interested in doing a joint one with me. I thought it might be good for my character to pay a visit to Olga, just for a friendly chat. He’s interested in military history and would love to be able to compare this worlds history to Olga’s version.
