Trained by a top-secret cell of the KGB known as The Hammer, Anatoli Knyazev was an assassin known to the C.I.A. as the KGBeast. Having over 200 kills in his debut he was sent to America by The Hammer to assassinate 10 U.S officials, one of which was to visit Gotham City. This caught the Batman's eye and after battling twice the Beast cut his left arm off after it was restrained by the Batrope. He had his left arm replaced with a cybernetic gun, but in their 3rd battle Batman destroyed the gun arm and trapped him in a sewer where, he was later captured by police. Despite this, Anatoli escaped and became a recurring enemy of Batman, until he was killed by Tally Man under orders by Great White Shark.
