Apokolips, Darkseid's Throne Room
“Cyborg-87, what is the word?” Darkseid rumbles from his throne.
“Sir, the Green Lantern and the god Thor just finished a battle at the Chetradome.”
“I detest that vial Chetradome, it should have been I who won the last tournament...go on Cyborg-78.”
“It is also notable that Galactus is currently on a direct course towards Earth.”
“Again? When will he learn that he just cannot have it?! Between the Justice League, the Avengers, and the Legion of Guardians, he hasn't a hope.”
“Well the Legion of Guardians are on assignment to investigate the Fatal Four, and the Justice League and the Avengers are at fisticuffs because of the Thor vs. Lantern battle. They each think that it was a deliberate attack made by the other team.
“That is bad news...I wish I could say I was happy about this, but there is no way I am going to let Galactus have it. Especially when it would be the perfect place for me to conquer. I think that it's time to call on some old friends.”
Apocalypse was just fine tuning his next plot to destroy the X-men, when a loud boom sound echos behind him. Apocalypse turns around.
“Darkseid...what is it?” he says
“It has come to my attention that Galactus is on his way to this planet to consume it.” Says Darkseid
“With you, the four of us can take him down easily.”
Apocalypse takes a look behind Darkseid to see Doomsday, and--
“BLACK ADAM!” cries Apocalypse. Darkseid looks taken aback. “Magneto will marry Shadowcat before I team up with him!”
“What is the problem?” asks Darkseid.
“I don't feel like explaining the matter to you. Let's just say the two of us met a few thousand years ago in Egypt, and we've been enemies ever since.”
“Then I guess we will have to make do with out you.” says Darkseid a little impatiently. “Come on guys, maybe we can get Bizarro to join us. He'll fight anything if you know how to talk to him.”
The three leave in a Boom Tube and Apocalypse begins to think. What would make a better revenge against Black Adam then to beat the living daylights out of him? And it would just so happen that Galactus is on his way here. Apocalypse smiles, or at least what he thinks is a smile. I think I should have a talk with the big and purple.
Space, near Galactus
Galactus just un-docked from his massive ship, and is flying through space towards Earth when Apocalypse approaches him.
“Galactus, I am going to help you. Don't ask why, but it will help you in the end.”
Galactus doesn't move, doesn't even signal that he heard Apocalypse. Apocalypse nods and takes that as confirmation.
Galactus and Apocalypse land in Ritt City, Connecticut and are greeted by Darkseid, Doomsday, Bizarro, and Black Adam.
The six take fighting stances. So Who Wins? The Planet Eater and his vengeful compatriot? Or the Evil Defenders of Earth?
Superman: Considering how many times that Galactus has tried to destroy the Earth, and how many times he has failed, you would think that he would learn to leave us alone by now.
Human Torch: It's unfortunate that the heroes in the world were too busy fighting amongst themselves to bother preventing the Earth from being destroyed.
Superman: I'm just glad that Darkseid is so fond of Earth that he would risk his neck to protect it.
Human Torch: I'm sure fondness had nothing to do with it.
Superman: It is true, I am sure that this is somehow all part of Darkseid's plan to take over the world.
Human Torch: Are you prepared to fight Galactus if he wins?
Superman: I have some people I can call if things get out of hand.
Human Torch: Good, you might want to start dialing now.
Superman: You're that confident that he and Apocalypse will win?
Human Torch: I have fought both of them, and they are no pushovers.
Superman: I can say the same about Darkseid, Doomsday, Bizarro, and Black Adam. They are a force to be reckoned with. You will excuse me for saying that that means a lot coming from me.
Human Torch: I guess we will have to wait and see.
Superman: Let's just hope that Ritt City will survive it.
Human Torch: It's kind of odd, I don't ever remember hearing of Ritt City. I had no idea that it even existed.
Superman: I guess Galactus wanted to land somewhere a little more inconspicuous than New York for a change.
Human Torch: I guess it's a good thing that Darkseid was able to determine where Galactus was going to land then.
Human Torch: Galactus doesn't seem to realize that he is in a fight, and begins setting up his machines.
Superman: Apocalypse runs between Galactus and the other four.
Human Torch: Apocalypse begins to swell, and get taller.
Superman: Apocalypse must have used a power to make himself the size of Galactus.
Human Torch: Wonderful, now they have to fight two giants.
Superman: Darkseid signals to Bizarro, and Bizarro waves back grinning.
Human Torch: Darkseid curses at Bizarro, and Bizarro remembers what he is supposed to do.
Superman: Bizarro stares at Doomsday, and Doomsday begins to grow the same way that Apocalypse did.
Human Torch: Wait...what?
Superman: Bizarro has a telescopic vision that can make things bigger. In this case, Doomsday.
Human Torch: That's all the world needs, a giant Doomsday.
Superman: I agree, but if it will help them defeat Galactus, I'm all for it...for now.
Human Torch: Doomsday charges a short distance, and tackles Apocalypse to the ground.
Superman: Darkseid signals to Bizarro again, and this time Bizarro uses his telescopic vision on Darkseid.
Human Torch: Darkseid reaches full height, and begins walking toward Galactus.
Superman: Black Adam and Bizarro take this as confirmation to set their plan in motion.
Human Torch: Doomsday and Apocalypse grapple, crushing buildings and cars in their way.
Superman: Darkseid throws a punch at Galactus, but Galactus hardly notices... I don't understand, that should have done something.
Human Torch: Galactus has too many machines down, keeping him shielded from harm.
Superman: I see, and it looks like Black Adam and Bizarro are working on destroying them now.
Human Torch: Darkseid helps out by shooting his Omega Beams at the little machines below.
Superman: Doomsday gets up from a now unconscious Apocalypse.
Human Torch: Doomsday turns his attention to Galactus, but at this point all of Galactus' shields are down, and Darkseid makes his move.
Superman: One solid punch in the face, and Galactus falls over, his helmet toppling off his head.
Human Torch: Galactus crushes a few houses with his body, and Darkseid signals at Bizarro.
Superman: Bizarro now uses his microscopic vision to shrink both Doomsday and Darkseid.
Human Torch: Well, Galactus and Apocalypse are defeated. I guess Darkseid, Doomsday, Bizarro, and Black Adam win.
Superman: And it's a good thing too, I was just kidding about having people to call if Galactus and Apocalypse won. We would have had a tough time defeating him if these guys couldn't.
Darkseid, Doomsday, Bizarro, and Black Adam defeat Galactus and Apocalypse 11 votes to 9.
