Little is known about the history of Anton and his career as Crimson Dynamo.
He joined the Masters of Evil along with Baron Zemo, Amora, Executioner, Abomination, and Wonder Man. He helped the other members of the Masters of Evil take over Avengers Mansion and capture every Avengers except for Black Panther, Ant-Man, and Hawkeye. Zemo promised him he could kill Iron Man when everything had succeeded. Impatient, Dynamo blocked Zemo's path and asked him when and Zemo's answer was "When I say so." Dynamo agreed and stepped aside. He was later defeated by Wasp and Black Panther. He was then betrayed along with the others, though they managed to flee.
As with the Avengers, the Masters of Evil returned to Earth. For revenge, he attacked Amora and Executioner. However, they trapped him until Iron Man and Hawkeye arrived. He was taken away to Prison 42.
Crimson Dynamo was voiced by Chris Cox.
In the Comics
Anton was a Russian scientist who invented the Crimson Dynamo armor to generate electricity. He then defected to the United States. Black Widow was sent to recapture the armor, and Anton sacrificed himself to protect Iron Man.
Many other people, almost all Russians, used similar armor to become the Crimson Dynamo.
