A general falls. A red monster rises. Stay tuned.

RULK REPORT : General Thaddeus E. “Thunderbolt” Ross turns 50!

Although on the shelves a few months earlier, this past week officially marks the historic benchmark of 50 YEARS since the publishing date of the first issue of the Marvel comic “The Incredible Hulk”.  While the world celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the big green guy (while Marvel released shamefully little to no fanfare for him) , we here at the Red Hulk Blog will recognize another important 50th birthday…. that of the hard assed, red-blooded American military General Thaddeus E. “Thunderbolt” Ross.

In honor of the Thunderbolt’s Birthday, we present you Thad’s very first scene appearance in 1962’s “The Incredible Hulk” Issue #1.

Happy Birthday Ross.  You’re finally getting the respect you deserve.  And as you would say…  “It’s Ding-Dong Well About Time!”

    He pulls off being in his 50’s better than my relatives lol.

    Although that could be due to the reverse aging of the Hulk transformation?

      Honestly he looks better now than back then. Like I’ve heard and said before, going Red was the best thing that could’ve happened to the guy. Heck, he’s gotten a looker out of it in the form of Annie. 😉

    If they made a reprint of the first hulk I would buy it just because general Ross is in it
