Overview... a seemingly super-human, indestructible Soviet boxer. Ivan Drago won an Olympic gold medal for the Soviet Union and now has his sights set on the heavyweight championship belt held by Rocky Balboa. First, Ivan beats Rocky’s friend (and the former champ) Apollo Creed so badly that Apollo dies in the ring, which doesn’t seem to bother the emotionless Ivan much. (“If he dies, he dies,” says Ivan coolly, one of the few things he says in English, or any language for that matter.) Rocky decides to fight Ivan on his home Russian turf to avenge Apollo’s death.
Personality... driven and single-minded, but he might not be the complete automaton he appears to be. Ivan is definitely the (very) strong but silent type, training relentlessly with the latest scientific advances. He’s consumed by achievement and victory. But there might be more humanity below the fearsome surface – if anyone can ever get close enough to find out.
