|Appeared in||Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer|
General T. Hager is a former associate of Reed Richards and an old time rival of his.
When the Silver Surfer arrives on Earth, Hager is put in charge in the mission of tracking and possibly stop the alien. Hager asks for Richards' help, but he's disappointed by the Fantastic Four's way of operating (especially because of the damages provoked by Human Torch). So he gets into an agreement with Victor Von Doom, who helps them capturing the Surfer.
Once taken the alien in custody, Hager starts to torture him for gaining information about Galactus. He then has the Fantastic Four captives for preventing them to save Silver Surfer, since they disappoint his methods of interrogation. Eventually, Doom's real plan is revealed, and when Victor steals the Cosmic Power from Silver Surfer, Hager is killed during his escape from the military base.
General Hager is a proud and stubborn man, who puts his personal feelings towards his old time rival Reed Richards before his duty (which Richards calls him out on it). He's anyway a capable soldier and a skillful scientist, who takes seriously his mission.
