General Hager is a general in the U.S. Army. When an alien being known only as the Silver Surfer came to Earth, General Hager contacted Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four to investigate the alien's activities. The relationship between General Hager and the Fantastic Four became increasingly antagonistic, causing General Hager to bring in Victor von Doom to study the alien after he had been captured. However, Doom only came on to the project to get his hands on the Surfer's board, the source of its powers, and he soon betrayed General Hager, killing him.[1]



  • Andre Braugher portrayed General Hager in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.
  • General Hager was originally supposed to be Nick Fury, but this had to be changed at the last minute due to rights issues (Fox owns film rights to the Fantastic Four, while Marvel Studios has rights to Fury). It's especially obvious since one of Hager's conversations with Mr. Fantastic is taken almost word-for-word from a conversation between Mr. Fantastic and Nick Fury in Ultimate Extinction #2.
