Iron Curtain
Real Name: Simas
Search for 'Iron Curtain' on Amazon

Iron Curtain possessed superhuman strength and had virtually indestructible skin (but not innards).

When the mutant hunters known as X-Factor came to Russia to advise the government on its mutant problem, Iron Curtain and another member of Blind Faith's mutant cell attacked X-Factor at the airport, and tried to take Robert Drake captive, but the second mutant was shot in the back and killed. Iron Curtain escaped.

After Drake had been captured by Doppelganger (the mutant in charge of a facility where mutants were being experimented upon in brutal fashion), a cell member named "Holy Grail" saw Drake being taken away, and advised Blind Faith and Iron Curtain, who intercepted Drake. They brought Drake back to one of their bases to interrogate him, but when Drake came to, they learned that he was a fellow mutant--Iceman. Iceman joined Blind Faith, Iron Curtain, Mentac, Siberian Tiger and Concussion in raiding the facility where Doppelganger operated, and with X-Factor, helped bring the mutant prisoners there to safety. In order to maintain X-Factor's cover identity as mutant hunters and explain their disappearance, Blind Faith and Iron Curtain posed as kidnappers, and turned themselves over to the KGB. Blind Faith subsequently used his powers so that he and Iron Curtain could escape the KGB's custody.

Iron Curtain joined Concussion and Blind Faith in breaking the heroes Darkstar, Vanguard and Ursa Major out of a government facility so that they could join their cell. Later, as they hid at a safehouse in Siberia, they were attacked by the cybernetic warrior Firefox, who launched an explosive down Iron Curtain's throat. Iron Curtain was blown to pieces.
