Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross (She-Hulk)

Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) has made sparse appearances in the MCU as he’s consistently pressured superhumans to follow his orders. Ross never mentions exactly why he has such a problem with vigilantes, though it seems to be reaching a boiling point. And if the problem progresses any further, he might do the unthinkable.

For those who don’t recall, Ross administered a version of the Super Soldier Serum to Blonsky (Tim Roth) in The Incredible Hulk. It sadly transformed the veteran soldier into an Abomination, but a more refined version could feasibly grant Ross the ability to turn into the Red Hulk. There’s also a comic precedent for this happening.

She-Hulk is the ideal show for Thaddeus Ross aka Red Hulk to make his grand debut in because Jennifer Walters will begin exploring more of Hulk’s lineage on the show. Ross’ hulking counterpart isn’t directly related to Bruce Banner, but they essentially share some of the same mutated DNA. Because of that, introducing more members of the Hulk family sounds feasible.

Additionally, Ross could serve as an antithesis to Jennifer Walters on the series. She’s a criminal defense lawyer in the comics, so an encounter with the authoritarian Thunderbolt Ross may put them at odds, especially when Walters will endorse protection and privacy for enhanced individuals.

In truth, seeing Walters go to trial against representatives of the United States government would make for an interesting dynamic. By day, Walters could play the dutiful public servant who pushes back against people like Ross, and then by night, she can serve as a driving force against supervillains.

She-Hulk’s release date on Disney Plus is TBA.
