At first, I thought 'pshaw'. Then, after I read King Size Hulk I began to examine the evidence.
1) Red Hulk kills the Abomination. Why? Because the Abomination 'killed' Betty-- it's the perfect motive. Betty Ross is, of course, dead, but this is comics. Colossus, Hawkeye, Harry Osbourne...just three characters who pretty decisively bit the big one to have been miraculously resurrected in the past four years. Given how unlikely each of those occurances were, it's not too much of a stretch to believe that Betty might still be alive. Besides-- didn't her death have something to do with a large dose of radiation? And given that she has already once been transformed into the Harpy, haven't we already seen that she is susceptible to gamma transformations?
2) In the Frank Cho segment, She Hulk knees Red Hulk in the stones, taunting him by saying 'that's gotta hurt'. In the next panel, Red Hulk just smiles and says 'not so much', and gets back into the fight unaffected. Why? Because he is a she!
3) In the Wendigo story, Red Hulk mentions says 'where I come from, we don't tolerate mistakes'. Sound anything like a military background to you? It could be General Ross I suppose...except that it can't be General Ross. he's seen injured and fully clothed during the attack on the helicarrier.
4) Red Hulk's eye is scanned at Gamma Base, and the computer registers his--or her-- true identity. Having gorwn up on the base, Betty would certainly be recognised there.
I think Red Hulk is actually a She Hulk! (which, in a very twisted sort of way, makes this posting relevant to this board).
