    Default Imperium Of Man vs Composite America

    An Imperium scout ship stumbles across a version of Earth which has not been conquered in the name of the holy God Emperor. Naturally, they invade.

    Can Composite Earth defend itself against legions of Imperial Guardsmen, Space Marines, psykers, attempts at exterminatus, and Emperor knows what else for a month? Is it possible that Composite America could even beat....

    HERESY!

    To say nothing of Lucifer and Franklin Richards also generally living in America.

    You don't specify The time they invade, so one thing I assume is the legion of Superheroes is available. (Time Bubbles) Who is the spectre at this stage? He wrecks them by himself. You have everybody who has or will be an Avenger. The Imperium of Man is ghost toasties.

    Hmmm...

    You do realize that means Composite America is fielding multiple Superman-level beings, magic-users like Dr. Strange, and the like?
    Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence.

    USA here given how America typically has the most super beings and the powerful ones to boot.

    And then there's the fact that one of the Presidents is Doctor Doom.

    And in one of them Absorbing Man becomes New York City.

    But none of that matters when they hit the Lucifer Morningstar, Adult Franklin Richards, Pre-Retcon Owen Reece, PC Spectre, Michael Korvac etc. levels of batshit powers. Oh, and the Dreaming Celestial.

    There is nothing the Imperium of Man can do to touch any of those, not to mention ‘lesser lights’ like PC Supes, PC Dr Fate, PC Flash, Sentry, Silver Surfer (when he was trapped on Earth), Classic Dr Strange, Star Brand etc.

    It’s an absolute horror-stomp.

    And Scarlet Witch at her peak, and Shaman Nate, and Jesus Cable, and Sentry, and multiple Phoenixes (Phoeni?).

    Didn't the pre-retcon Beyonder also live in New York for a bit?

    Kinda sorta. But he also had a giant floating raft of TV screens in the ocean somewhere.

    No, really.

    Secret Wars II Beyonder was a strange beast.

    But great soul-glo hair.

    Got a lot of Pantheons of Skyfather level floating around the Earth. Do we get all the nasty Lovecraftian horrors in the game? Didn't say just good guys.

    Even if he doesn't count, pre-retcon Molecule Man did.
