Strength Level

  • In his Red Hulk form, Ross can lift well over 100 tons of weight.


  • Blades and Sharp objects: Apparently, Red Hulk has shown a weakness to sharp objects as seen when the Punisher and Wolverine stabs him and he start bleeding in large amounts. When Wolverine cuts him across the back, Red Hulk was temporarily blinded.
  • Negative Zone energy: Absorbing energy from the Negative Zone weakens Ross's Red Hulk form for some reason.
