Credits list William Hurt's character as General "Thunderbolt" Ross. While, in the US Army, all General Officers are addressed as General, a Ross is a 3-star, or Lieutenant General. Whenever his rank would be written down, it would be written as Lieutenant General or abbreviated to LTG (inside of the Army) or LtGen (correspondence outside of the Army. A General Ross would be a 4-star.
The opening credits sequence is a flashback showing how Bruce Banner became the Hulk and details his subsequent run from Ross, interspersed with military documentation archiving his progress.
