Dmitri Pushkin was an Ukrainian soldier who joined the Rocket Red Brigade in the Soviet era. During a clash with the Justice League in Siberia, his front teeth was kicked out by the Black Canary, something that kind of foreboded his eventual joining the Justice League International, where he remained a member in good standing for a long time. Dmitri's original armor was destroyed by Lobo and replaced with a more powerful one, built on Apokolips. When the JLI disbanded, Dmitiri returned to the Ukraine to spend more time with his wife and children. He was last seen in action fighting an Imperiex probe during the "Our Worlds at War" event. He later attended Sue Dibny's funeral as a civilian.
