Fictional character biography[edit]

Thunderbolt Ross[edit]

Thunderbolt Ross turned himself into Red Hulk with the help of A.I.M. and Intelligencia in order to be in an equal fight with Hulk.[1]

Robert Maverick[edit]

Provided with a variation of the Hulk Plug-In that was placed in his arm, Robert Maverick became a variation of Red Hulk when he joined the U.S.Avengers. Unlike the Thunderbolt Ross version of Red Hulk, this version maintains his moustache.[2]

Other versions[edit]

Planet Hulk[edit]

During the Secret Wars storyline, an unidentified Red Hulk is the Baron of the Battleworld domain of Greenland under the name Red King. A variation of Captain America called the Captain and his Devil Dinosaur were sent into Greenland by God Emperor Doom and Sheriff Strange in order to kill Red King when it turned out that he has the Captain's Bucky that the Captain has been looking for.[3]

After the Captain and his Devil Dinosaur made their way to the Mud Kingdom where the Red King resided, both of them raided the Red King's palace. When the Captain demanded that he release Bucky, the Red King revealed that God Emperor Doom lied to him and that he already sent his head to God Emperor Doom a month ago. While grabbing the cybernetic arm of Bucky, the Red King stated that Bucky wasn't his prisoner but his trophy.[4]

When the Red King offered the Captain an offer to join his army into attacking God Emperor Doom, The Captain declined where he managed to fight and kill the Red King. Upon the Captain killing his counterpart that was a Hulk called Doc Green, the Captain threw the Red King's head in front of the Tribal Hulks causing them to stop fighting Devil Dinosaur.[5]
