~ Russo ordering his Hellicarrier to take down the targets.

Russo is a supporting antagonist of the 2014 Marvel film Captain America: The Winter Soldier. He is a undercover HYDRA operative acting as one of the captains of the Hellcarriers.

He was portrayed by Jon Sklaroff.

Role

As a supposed S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Russo was tasked to supervise one of the three Hellicarriers owned by S.H.I.E.L.D.. However, it turns out that Alexander Pierce has formulated an operation called Project Insight, which involves using the Hellicarriers to take down millions of people to bring a new world order for HYDRA (thanks to a certain algorithm developed by the deceased Arnim Zola). It also turns out that Russo is involved of the plot alongside the Winter Soldier, Brock Rumlow and the STRIKE team.

When the Hellicarriers are finally launched into the air, Russo ordered his Helicarrier crew to deploy the algorithm in order to target all of HYDRA's anticipated enemies within range of their weapon platforms. However, Captain America managed to expose the plot before heading over to the Hellicarrier. Equipped with a chip that would erase the algorithm, Captain America managed to break into the Hellicarrier's targeting system and plugged the chip into it. This allowed Maria Hill to reprogram the Hellicarriers to destroy each other, killing Russo and his crew in the process.

Trivia

  • He is not to be confused with Billy Russo from the Punisher Netflix TV series.
