100 World War Hulks

vs

DC Earth Superheroes, pre-52 versions, all of them!

Scenario: Darkseid decides to finally take out Earth, but without getting his hands dirty. He's looking through a device that shows him alternate realities and finds this World War Hulk creature tearing up the place, so he decides to make an army of clones to send to Earth. He creates 100 clones, each an exact duplicate of WW Hulk. The Hulks all think that everyone on Earth is responsible for their woes, so they want to kill everyone on Earth. Darkseid makes them invulnerable to magic. Magic cannot in any way affect them directly. He also makes it so that the Hulks cannot be BFR'd away from wherever they are fighting. Lastly, Darkseid teleports all the Flashes and Zooms to another planet. He doesnt want them to interfere because even Darkseid thinks they're over-powered, and Darkseid believes in fair play... at least for his enemies. =)

Darkseid drops off all the Hulks in the middle of the U.S, from where they start to spread out to kill as many as possible. The heroes start to learn what's going on 15 minutes later when reports start coming in from places like Metropolis where Hulks started showing up.

Rules:

-Everyone starts out in-character, which means bloodlusted for the Hulks. Only heroes for the DC team, no villains, who are all presumably using the chaos to go out and be evil, or something. No Flashes or Zooms. No prior prep or knowledge. Only heroes that were permanently based on Earth right before the new-52 stuff happened. Everyone in their standard pre-52 versions, standard gear, etc.

-Magic does not affect the Hulks in any direct way, although it can be used to affect other objects near them... i.e. using magic to lift a heavy object and then drop it on the Hulks is ok.

-Hulks cannot be BFR'd from wherever they are currently fighting. They must be killed or permanently incapacitated. If KO'ed, they simply wake up 5 minutes later to continue the destruction.

-No interference from The Spectre (or similar cosmic entities).

-Other than the heroes, the government is also in the fight. However, the heroes get there first. But if the battle goes on long enough or spreads far enough, the military will factor in.

-no BFR'ing people away from Earth to keep them safe. The battle must happen, on Earth, with everyone on the planet who is already on the planet.

Victory conditions: Heroes win if they can kill or permanently incapacitate all the Hulks before they can kill 50% of the population of Earth.

Who wins, and how?

DC wins. I see them using empaths to calm the enraged Hulks and then killing them when they turn back into Banner.

Do you really want to make a list of 100+ heroes and then make a scenario? Here's a bit of an easier win. Transport the population of the earth to somewhere else and then kill all of the Hulks.

I suppose, although WWH is pretty resistant to telepathic manipulation from what I recall in the comic.

@inconvenient_truth: ...booster gold(hes shields can take punches from doomsday)...

Be serious people. Booster would be able to take a couple of (maybe 3) hits from 1 WWH before his shields go down, and then he's toast.

I have to wonder what people are thinking when they say that some Lanterns or Captain Atom or anyone else would solo. That's just not realistic, especially since they are all in character. Since when does Captain Atom start a fight by trying to drain someone's energy... especially when he has no idea that that person is powered by some special energy to begin with? More likely he'll try to brawl or use some energy blasts, at which point he'll get blindsided by a random WWH he didnt see and get stomped by 2 or 3 at a time.

I maintain Batman would be an asset. He'd be smart enough to either try to calm them, or trick them. Or both. If nothing else, he'd have the most sound tactics.

They are bloodlusted against everyone else on Earth, not each other. To get them to fight each other someone would have to mind-control them, not simply suggest that they do so. =) As far as they know, they were collectively wronged by the people/heroes of Earth, and are here to get revenge. As such, they will fight as a team and help each other out if needed, although their main goal is to go around and kill as many as possible.

No, how can 3 or 4 lanterns solo 100 WWHs. 1 hulk beat 3 different teams of x men at the same time, and that's just to say the least. I don't think the whole lantern core could stop 100 of these hulks if bfr were an option they would have done it in his story arch, this is not a dumb hulk

No, I cant see atom draining enough to stop one WWH let alone 100, be realistic here

With no cosmics or Darkseid level beings the hulks have a realistic chance of winning

The DC hero's responding initially would be the justice league's standard powerhouses. Without the flash, it'd most likely be supes, WW, MM, and green lantern at its core. Them vs the initial 100 hulks while they're still generally at their most concentrated throughout the event. Batman most likely stays behind to bat research why were suddenly being hateraped by an army of gamma beasts, or if he does go then he escapes with firsthand experience via some slick plot device. I'm pretty sure his detective skills would pick up that he shouldn't get too close to the earth splitting death machines without knowing what they are. Regardless, the initial jla response gets utterly obliterated by the hundred hulks at once. The hulks rapidly spread across the country more or less unmatched. Their destruction isn't absolute as there are scattered survivors with definite shit stains in their shorts. Meanwhile, green lantern arrives cuz hes mot stupid and would leave before his ring ran and begins gatherimg the surviving american heros or delegating with foreign back up. batman they notices the trail of radiation and or blood or w e and figures out that Bruce banner once stole a library book back in college whenever that technically was. He knows this because he's batman, but also he deduces that they're radioactive gamma monsters. He begins hunting down a team and formulating a plot to specifically handle this threat. Also superman should be back about now given his super coma. Maybe wonder woman survived...idk too much about mom but if he made it then we is dead, its one or the other because the jla needs a dead friend to learn a lesson about their feelings or something. The us is lost, and there's unfortunately no time to even launch a full evacuation. Most of the remaining heroes are preoccupied with this as opposed to fighting the hulks cuz the military is def gonna nuke itself/the u.s.. the aftermath of the explosions are harder to determine. Regardless, it certainly fails to kill all the hulks and also catches a few heroes trying to save the last few stragglers. There's a limit to how bad we can blow up our planet, so the bombing wears down after a bit. Meanwhile, batmans strike squad is of course successful in disabling individual hulks cuz its led by batman. Other powerhouses no doubt develop their own method of systematically killing/disintegrating/w e individual hulks. Overall, the progress is too slow. Every barrier set up, like to mexico, is specifically targeted by the pissed off hulks in masses just for daring to defy their rage. North and south america are devastated. Now residing outside the Americas, superheros focus their efforts on preventing the hulks from crossing the oceans, in which they are successful. There is a period of time in which humanity must coexist with this continent of living murder, but a new class of superheros emerge: hulk slayers. Their purpose is simply as it sounds, and consists of professional groups, fan-favorite tag teams, or solo BA mofos with nothing to lose. Eventually, after years of dedicated genocide, DC heroes claimvictory after the loss of the western world. Also its really radioactive so the remaining countries are overcrowded which leads to mass starvation and millions die. End result: without googling it, im guessing earths population immediately after last hulks killed is likely a lil less than 75% cuz china is PACKED like I mean...PACKED. With people. Anyway, the census after including future indirect casualties via mass starvation, disease, radiation poisoning, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions for decades after the SUPER HUMAN WAR ON EARTH the population definitely decreases below the 50% line

In short, DC wins. Because Batman. ...but at what price?

Hey, pretty nice narrative. =) The couple of things I'd disagree with is that the military might try one nuke, but once they saw that that didnt really work they'd stop. Also, the Hulks would definitely be able to get off N/S America. Even if they cant jump straight from N.America to Europe or S.America to Africa, they can still do it by going either through Alaska -> Russia (short jump) or Canada->Greenland->Iceland->Europe.

Just one WWH gave Marvel Earth a pretty severe beating. Granted, there was lots of PIS involved and the Marvel top-level heroes are generally not as powerful as the top-tier DC'ers... but still. And, Marvel Earth didnt have any of the handicaps DC Earth has here helping it out.

I dont see any scenario in which 100 bloodlusted WWHs showing up without warning or prep would be... easy.

Well thank u good sir, but beyond that I completely overlooked that these hulks are smart, but its unclear how long they stay blood lusted. It can't be too long or they'd go nuclear, and after a few days of wandering with nothing to pulverize no doubt they'd calm down. Intellectually speaking they would without a doubt be leaving the western continents. During the initial rush I'm sure a few would get out, but being seperated from backup they would be targeted and defeated relatively quickly by comparison to the mass. It Superman is allowed to infinite-mass-fly at them, I can't see anything hitting harder than never-ending mass and being near light speed its near impossible to dodge. It say there be a big green splat n I'd like to see hulk try n regenerate from a puddle. Regardless, to balance me forgetting that these 100 hulks are smart, I also forgot what happens to superman after 15 minutes in the sun :p factoring that, DC wins even faster....but batman still helped...kinda.. and didn't Godzilla invade DC in a comic once? I could swear I remember him n supes kick in it somewhere...if that wasn't the most awesome dream iv ever had the DC def wins cuz Godzilla EATS radiation, he'd be like super Godzilla in that game and bring on ragnarok. World war hulk would discover the cold chill of fear running down his tree-trunk of a spine

#46 Edited by thelocust619 (2257 posts) - - Show Bio

final answer, DC win via sun dipped superman, batman-assembled strike team, possible Godzilla assistance, that atom guy mentioned sounds pretty helpful but also is probably already on the strike force, green lanterns team, and no thanks to the teen titans, who decided to stick to regular criminals. This is not a hulk holocaust tho, it is a war and the superhero population is hit the hardest, possibly losing over half its members. Tho with gamma blood everywhere marvel can totally sue the shit outta DC for their next wave of young heros

Maybe it's because I like taking the easy way out, but I think the Justice League should just evacuate everyone to another planet... then have someone like Superman destroy the Earth. It'd be too much of a hassle to fight 100 WWHs, and the collateral damage wouldn't be worth the effort.

Cant do. The rules forbid BFR'ing anyone to safety, and Superman destroying the Earth is seriously out of character.

Sun-dipping would require Superman to BFR himself, which is against the rules. Also, mostly out of character.

Batman borrows Mr. Miracle's Motherbox, teleports to Apokolips, threatens Darkseid with hellspores, and Darkseid activates the fail safe on the clones. Do I win a cookie?

Batman has no knowledge that this is Darkseids doing, and teleporting to Apokolips is against the rules. Also, there's no failsafe. =) Hulks smash! But you can have a cookie if you want.
