Russell Sterling Silver A.K.A. “Big Russ” is the founder and leader of the covert fighting force known as the Silver Six, whose bionic uniforms are based on ancient technology discovered by renowned scientist Dr. Elias Edwards. In his past life, as a marine during a military operation in the Middle East, Big Russ and his squad encountered several hostile 8 foot giants during a reconnaissance mission. Most of his team was taken out, he and his brother were the only survivors. Once they returned, the government placed a gag order on them and classified the whole incident. Big Russ, not being one to give in to bullies, no matter how big, leaked this info to the press, exposing the incident. Of course the government disavowed any knowledge and dishonorably discharged him. Now in the face of a new enemy from a parallel dimension, another giant called "The Dark One", Big Russ has formed the Silver Six, with the help of Dr. Eli, to fight this new threat to our world.
