I say Sinister Six.
Sandman and Hydro Man can be very annoying when fighting seriously. Mysterio illusions can be used to manipulate or confuse The Hulk, Doc Ock is threat everyday and he could solo if team has prep. Shocker and Rhino are way useless in this fight, they could be used as bait to lure Hulk.
@paulson3lt:No way Doc could solo, definitely needs team strategy
Fair enough. The S. Six have the nigh-perfect guy to create one on their team. The Hulk himself in the scan above alluded to their potential path to victory: If Doc Ock can keep his distance while sticking and moving with a vengeance, using Sandman and/or Electro as long range blasters, combined with Mysterio's illusions making the Hulk think he's getting attacked by, I don't know, a pack of zombified Care Bears or something, he could go down here. There's also the distant possibility that (if they get a prep phase), they break into Stark's place and steal some SPIN Tech or something to use here.
Are you kidding me? Savage Hulk has held his own against world breakers! He can't even run to his fullest extent in fear of him breaking the Earth underneath him, and you think a couple of Street level villians could ever stand up to a High teir world breaker like Hulk? SMH!
@venomoushatred1001: Wonder if that would help. I'm trying to find some of his feats
To be honest, they don't really have a whole lot..... other than being knocked off a building and seperating back into they're old selves.
While they have a chance of getting his blood sample through strategic planning, I doubt they'll actually knock the Hulk out. The guy goes up against the likes of Thor, Hercules, and bigger powerhouses and the Sinister Six get beaten by Spider-Man, who would be colossally stomped by Hulk. Hulk wins in a fight. Sinister Six would probably opt out to get what they need and high tail out of there.
No way Doc could solo, definitely needs team strategy
Read the first panel. "Just as I did previously."
Doc Ock has defeated Hulk all on his own at least once. Not saying he solos, just wanted to clear that up.
IIRC Hulk said he was holding back when Ock beat him
@dondave: IIRC Hulk said he was when Ock beat him
He very well may have been. But it could be that the Hulk underestimated his opponent, while Doc Ock knew EXACTLY who he was up against and went balls to the wall to score the victory he got that day. He(Hulk) could've had the mind set of "Hulk>Spiderman>Sinister Six" and got his ass whipped for his gross miscalculation. Ock would both have a plan, and have back-up here. I think they take it.
Would Mysterio's abilities work against Hulk?
They should. It's world class smoke and mirrors illusion work with a little hallucinogen (and in this encounter, I'm thinking a LOT of sedatives) thrown into the mix. An angry Hulk's metabolism will burn out any drugs before they can truly affect him, but an angry Hulk also won't be looking for subtle cues that what he's fighting is an illusion. Of course, Hulk could thunderclap Mysterio's smoke away easily as well.
I think the Six definitely has the potential to pull this off. It depends on how smart they play it. Concentrating on prep, speed, and specialized sedation while keeping Hulk off balance would be the way to go. If they just start trading blows with the Not-so-Jolly Green Giant, their chances of success quickly and severely diminish to slim and none.
With prep, I think the Six succeed 7/10. Without prep, Hulk takes off leaving them smashed 8/10.
