Yevgeny Borisovitch Volgin (Russian: Евгений Борисович Волгин), also known as Thunderbolt, was a Stalinist GRU colonel, as well as the strategic operations commander of the Soviet Union, who attempted to seize control of the Soviet Union by overthrowing Nikita Khrushchev and installing Leonid Brezhnev and Alexei Kosygin in his place. Volgin was an extremely strong man, even for his large size. He combined his tremendous strength and skills with the psychic ability of electrical manipulation (electrokinesis), gaining him the nickname "Thunderbolt" in the West. After Operation Snake Eater, his comatose body was taken to a research institute in Moscow where he was further experimented upon. Volgin's desire for vengeance against Big Boss kept him alive for many years and upon influencing Tretij Rebenok to accompany him, he gained pyrokinesis and began his rampage as the Man on Fire.
