Heroes & Villians Festival
Adding glitter body art to my booth so that I can make a few extra dollars and when there's an event that my parasols and rolling pins don't fit for the theme, I can do body art.
This just in! Paro Anand has been awarded the Bal Sahitya Puraskar for contribution to children’s writing in English for Wild Child and Other Stories. Congratulations Paro! Super excited about this!!! "I love Wild Child as a book, but I had a niggling doubt, a knowledge that there was more I had to and needed to get out from inside me. Luckily, my publisher agreed. And so out of Wild Child came Like Smoke. Carried on the wings of stories that lay in wait. A whole without a hole if you will..." - Paro Anand @paroanand @penguinindia
First appeared in The Incredible Hulk #1 (1962)
Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross is former U.S. military general. He is father of Bruce Banner's love Betty Ross and was archenemy of the Incredible Hulk. Ross made a deal with villains to be transformed into a Hulk himself. As the ruthless and cunning Red Hulk, he attempted to destroy his nemesis and take control of the country before seeking redemption as an Avenger. After leaving the team,he formed his own group of Thunderbolts with other Anti-Heroes. He was recently depowered by Doctor Green.
Born and raised in a military family, the young Thaddeus Ross spent much of his early life planning to join the Army, as had his father and his grandfather before him. However, the death of a close friend caused Ross to choose the Air Force instead. He attended West Point and came top of his class, and served bravely in several battles. He met and married Karen Lee, the daughter of his then-commanding officer. The couple had one daughter, Betty, and Ross used his influence to give the child a stable upbringing. However, Karen died of cancer when Betty was young teen, which caused Ross to grow distant with her. He rose quickly through the ranks, eventually obtaining the rank of general. He was assigned to command Desert Base, New Mexico, where Dr Bruce Banner's gamma ray experiments were carried out. He was in control of the base when the accident that caused Banner to become the Hulk occurred.
