The Red Hulk (a.k.a. "Rulk") character in human form is Thunderbolt Ross. His size is estimated to be the same as the green Hulk. He carries a S.H.I.E.L.D. gun around all times and uses it to sometimes finish off his victims like he did to A-Bomb.
We know that he either works for S.H.I.E.L.D or the army because he uses their gun and when he accidentally passed through an eye scan, the security robot says "Scan complete. Subjects I.D confirmed as..." Before he could say anymore, Rulk crushed him. At the end of Hulk: Red Hulk, Rick knew Rulk's identity. The only people that know his secret are Rick Jones and General Ross.
In the first comic called Red Hulk, he first appeared killing Abomination. Doc Samson and She Hulk was investigating the murder. he battled the Hulk twice. He won the first time but the Hulk used a tactic on him the second time. But Rulk was still not dead. Before he could get his name out, Doc Samson shot him
and told him that he couldn't go around telling secrets. At the same time, General Ross was talking with Rulk.
It seemed that he was working with Rulk to kill the Hulk. And then later, it is found out that Ross was the Rulk.
Red Hulk is a mysterious creature that appeared first in Red Hulk: Round 1. A little girl was a witness, and she lived. She kept saying the word Kpacasi which means Red. (She was saying red because the Red Hulk is red). The Red Hulk also has worked with Emil Blonsky, better known as Abomination multiple times in an attempt to kill Hulk.
Having all of the attempts fail, the Red Hulk had decided to shoot Blonsky and kill him, possibly because he had no use for him.
