Dr. Tania Belinsky, the third iteration, was created by Steve Gerber and Sal Buscema and first appeared in The Defenders #35 (May 1976). The fourth Red Guardian, Josef Petkus first appeared in Captain America #352 (April 1989), and was created by writer Mark Gruenwald and artist Kieron Dwyer. A fifth Red Guardian, Krassno Granitsky, appeared in Maverick #10 (June 1998), created by writer Jorge Gonzales and artist Leo Fernandez.
