Leader (also known as Dr. Samuel "Sam" Sterns), is a supervillain and archenemy of the Hulk. He is the fake leader and founder member in the new Cabal. He is a major antagonist in Season 3: Ultron Revolution and a tertiary antagonist in Season 4: Secret Wars.

History[]

The Leader appears in the Avengers: Ultron Revolution episode "Building the Perfect Weapon." He works on his plans to make the perfect weapon by stealing A.I.M. technology. When the Avengers and Red Hulk show up, Leader unleashes Ultimo on them while he gets away. When at an offshore island, Leader makes it so that Red Hulk got by the traps that the Avengers have a hard time getting through. The Leader lures Red Hulk into a room that contains a particle-accelerator gamma bomb, which he will use on Red Hulk. After Red Hulk fails to disarm the bomb and is caught in the explosion, Leader appears before the Avengers, stating that he created the perfect weapon as an enlarged Red Hulk appears near him.

In "World War Hulk," Leader loses control of Red Hulk and is beaten into a state of unconsciousness.

In the two-part episode "Avengers No More," Leader steals the prototype Arc Reactor and some Vibranium from the Wakandan Consulate, which leads him into conflict with the Avengers. When they catch him, he summons a new incarnation of the Cabal consisting of Arnim Zola, Enchantress, Executioner, and Kang the Conqueror. Using the stolen Vibranium and Arc Reactor prototypes, Leader builds the Static Expander to immobilize the Avengers in order to send them across time and space. When Black Panther returns with the reserve members, Leader is defeated, and he asks the Cabal to help him. Arnim Zola and Enchantress tell him that he is not the Cabal's "true leader" as the Cabal gets away. After the Avengers are scattered across time and space, Black Panther's group takes Leader into their custody.
