General Thaddeus Ross was formerly the head of S.H.I.E.L.D..[1]

Ross later decided to shut down the Weapon X program. Its director, John Wraith, staged a coup attempt by bombing Ross' offices.[2]

He somehow survived this, waking up on the autopsy table and telling the attendant "Hands off my precious bodily fluids, soldier."[3] His body was still physically damaged so he retired from active S.H.I.E.L.D. duty. He took a role as a liaison of the government for the think tank headquartered in the Baxter Building, the one that ran the Fantastic Four. [4] Assisting him was General Glenn Talbot.

Natural Resources

General Ross appeared again leading Operation Natural Resources, a government funded operation to capture the mutants in "Utopia" and to reclaim the land. Ross met up with Kitty Pryde and told her what wa going to happen. Ross was soon shot by a sniper from his side who believed Kitty was going to attack Ross. Ross managed to make his way to the car and told his men to arrest the sniper and he drove off, unsure what would happen next.

Ross would start his attack by sending in soldiers, who were to attack the residence and burn the forest. The battle soon ended when Psylocke was killed by Farbird and Jean Grey freeing both sides from Psylocke's control.
