Warning! This article contains spoilers for X-Men: Days of Future Past – Doomsday #2 Given his Marvel Comics track record, probably the last human fans would expect to put his career, and even his life, on the line for Mutantkind was right when it counts, which confirms it’s genuinely shocking MCU The character is actually a mystery X-Men Ally: General Ross.
General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross made his MCU debut in The incredible Hulkand later appeared in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity WarAnd Black widowand is expected to play a pivotal role in the coming year Captain America: Brave New World. While his character in the films is almost identical to his Marvel Comics counterpart, the only thing that isn’t as pronounced in the MCU is how obsessed Ross is with capturing the Hulk. Again and again, General Ross likes to push moral and ethical boundaries just to get his hands on banners. In fact, the MCU did an excellent job of portraying this The incredible Hulksince General Ross was actually responsible for creating the classic hulk villain subscription. While Ross has always been a borderline villain when it comes to the Hulk in both the comics and the MCU, it seems there are some lines he won’t cross, and the official prequel to it X-Men‘S days of the future past The event shows fans exactly what those lines are.
General Ross, despite his hatred of the Hulk, is a mutant ally
In X-Men: Days of Future Past – Doomsday In #2 by Marc Guggenheim and Manuel García, readers relive the events that led up to the dystopian wasteland they first saw in the original days of the future past Action. As mutants are increasingly portrayed as a threat, Henry Gyrich (a ruthless government official and notorious enemy of the X-Men) gains enough political power to issue generals in the military, and one of those generals is Thaddeus Ross. However, when Gyrich orders Ross to use military force to help relocate mutants, Ross refuses, claiming the order is illegal, unconstitutional, and immoral. Gyrich counters, saying that the legality of what he’s asking is unclear (meaning no one will get in trouble for “rounding up” mutants). However, Ross sticks to his moral standards and is relieved of his command as a result.
This scene came as a surprise to everyone, including General Ross himself. He told Gyrich that he had imagined many times what it would cost to go against a direct order, and that apparently this was why. While this scene came as a surprise to Ross, it was far more shocking to readers, who are used to seeing Ross chase a “mutant” to the ends of the earth, crossing every moral line in the process, only to have him handcuffed to see. While not technically a mutant, the Hulk is a super-powered individual who is just as dangerous as a number of mutants in the Marvel Universe, making the comparison more than fair. However, there’s a difference between trying to capture someone that Ross knows is dangerous and using the military to virtually incarcerate potentially dangerous US citizens, and that difference was so clear that Ross shaped his entire career jeopardized.
At heart, Thaddeus Ross is a good man who loves his country and everyone in it, and just wants to make sure everyone is safe and treated with the fairness and equality that the United States promises to all its citizens. He sees the Hulk as a direct violation of public safety and is obsessed with capturing him, but among the citizens Ross seeks to protect and continues to fight for are mutants. So when he’s ordered to turn against them, General Ross just can’t, which, as shocking as it may seem at first glance, confirms this MCU Figure is a secret ally of the X-Men and all mutants.
