So what exactly was this guy's deal?
He was an astronaut and while in space wanted to set the world on fire for some reason
Russian soldier turned cosmonaut. Upon returning from a trip to space, his spacecraft was consumed in flames. He survived but was badly burned and it warped his mind. All he feels is anger and pyromania.
ANGRY ABOUT SPACE

Wasn't he based on Vladimir Komarov?
