Origin

One of the former Soviet Union's greatest scientists, Ivan Kragoff was distinguished for his theories on cosmic radiation and its mutagenic effects. After the creation of the Fantastic Four, following their virgin space voyage, Kragoff determined that the team's powers were spawned from cosmic rays. Kragoff proposed a plan to repeat the phenomena with himself and a group of three apes. After the launch he and his simian companions gained superpowers which he used to challenge the Fantastic Four as the Red Ghost.
