Anatoli Knyazev, the KGBeast, is an extraordinary assassin who was in the employ of the KGB, the Soviet Union's secret police and intelligence agency. Knyazev became a rogue agent who went on an unauthorized mission to kill ten key people involved with the United States' Strategic Defense Initiative, nicknamed the "Star Wars" program, in the hope of putting an end to it. The Soviets warned the American government about Knyazev's plan. Nonetheless, Knyazev proved highly successful, killing seven of his nine designated targets. In pursuing his mission, Knyazev came to Gotham City and ran afoul of its costumed crime fighter, the Batman.
