I was gonna use Avengers in the title, but I'll let Cap, Thor & Iron Man have the name. For those enough to use Hulk on point (like me :cool:), here's a thread that will help you. We can discuss which assists work best with him, and who best works with Hulk on DHCs.

With Sentinel back in the game, players could arguably use his Sentinel Force Assist to aid in rushdown efforts, helping Hulk close the gap safely.

    Bruce, Wade and Tony look really good together but I still can't decide on assists.
    AA Gamma Charge as get off me move for Deadpool, or maybe Wave to put them far awat even on block?
    And more important question: UniBeam and Katana-Rama to help Hulk get in and maximize his damage or Smart Bombs and Quick Work? UniBeam can be really helpful but Quick Work creates unblockables as it hits low and works great with Iron Man's instant overheads.

    What do you guys think?

    Also what would be the best order of characters? I'm pretty sure Hulk on point is definite but what about other two?

    im playing around with taskmasterA/dormammuB/hulkY, starting with hulk. dormammu helps with otg combos in the corner for Gamma crush action and taskmaster decent assist helps him get in. Taskmaster is great at rushing down/zoning with hulk assist and getting them into the corner with bnb swings combo which you can easily otg them with dormammu assist, taskmaster MH hyper arrow (upwards angled on ground) into gamma crush for sick dmg. Still it is very hard to get in with hulk with no really good projectile assist like ironman etc.

    Any thoughts about this?

    try parabolic arrow assist with taskmaster. ive been doing that with just spamming gamma wave and its been insanely effective at zoning and making them play to you. and god forbid they get hit by either cause they just combo together for like 250k. most people just super jump over it or try to beam super through it which you can easily bait. if they super jump just set yourself up under them and its hulks game from there.
    Call the cops. I don't give a fuck.

    Uni-Beam for Shellhead, Quick Work for 'Pooly. You might also wanna look at Repulsor Blast, too. It may not look like it now, but Hulk benefits best from having an AAA watching his back, and Stark's provides one of the best in the game. Plus Deadpool's Quick Work comes out a little faster than Tony's Smart Bombs, and speed is never a bad thing. As for the order, have Hulk on point followed by Stark & Wade. It's a lot easier to DHC into the Proton Cannon from Banner's Gamma Crush or Tsunami.

    Currently, I'm using Hulk & Thor as a team now (since surprisingly Thor's normals remind me of the Hulk), but I'm still lost on a third. I'm open to any suggestions...

    been experimenting around, is this an alright team?

    Zero, Hulk, Ryu

    I understand that both Ryu and Hulk are good because of there assists and are not exactly fantastic point characters, should i change my build to contain more offensive characters like would..

    Zero, Chun-Li, Ryu be a good combo?

    I was trying Zero, Super Skrull, Ryu for a while... Its obvious that i love Zero and main Ryu in SSF4

    Any help is appreciated!!

    My team is Trish(peekabo), Deadpool (katana-rama), and Hulk(anti-air charge)

    Hulk acts as anchor and gets people away from trish, with hulk and deadpool's assists plus trish's traps, people have a hard time touching her, plus hulkl wrecks as an anchor with some meter.

    Thanks for your opinion. I guess you meant Pool's Katana-Rama assist cause Quick Work doesn't hit otg ;)
    I also noticed that DHC into Angled Proton Cannon is so much easier (and more damaging). Also it's important that you can DHC almost immediately after using Deadpool's if Iron Man is in the middle (in some combo's it won't be possible do DHC into Deadpool as he'll not recover after assist in time)

    I don't think it's a good idea to have two heavy hitters on the team. To much problems with heavy keep away.

    Can Hulk and Haggar function together on a team? I REALLY like Haggar and don't want to drop him, but I'm seeing more zone/keep away teams (at least at this point)

    Right now I'm running with Hulk, Dr. Doom and then Sentinel.

    I use Hulk at the point and then the Moleculer Shield on Doom and the Sent Force Charge punches for Sent. I find that Doom and Sent can really cover the screen for Hulk and allow me to get in with him and of course Doom and Sent can hold their own handily if Hulk falls. To be honest against most people playing right now this team kinda feels cheap lol. I hardly have to even use Sentinel, Doom and Hulk is a great combo.

    I've been having a lot of success abusing the Hsien-Ko gong>armor>free tag opening. Then I just abuse the shit out if her Senpu Bu assist to make Hulk super safe. I'm still looking for a third though, I've been using Trish but haven't been having much success. Hsien-Ko assist is bustedly good though.

    I'm running Hulk/Doom/Wesker. Any tips on this team? Assist suggestions? I bought the strategy guide, recommended Wesker for Hulk

    Hulk + Wester Mix Ups

    With Hulk on point + Wesker (or any low assist):

    :l:+:m:+:a1:, jump cancel, j. :l:, j. :s:

    One of Hulk's "hard-to-blockables." With X-23's Ankle Slicer assist, this sequence is a fairly quick high-low-high mix up. Since Wesker's Samurai Edge comes out so quickly, this will probably be nigh unblockable. Really good for starting pressure.

    Hulk + Doom Reset

    Then you have the Hulk + Doom (rocks) reset into Gamma Tornado off a launcher, which I'll repost here with a minor tweak:

    :l:, :m:, :s:+:a1:, j.:m:, j.:s:, land, :l:-Gamma Tornado

    I originally had j.:l: as the first move in the air combo, but it whiffs on smaller characters, j.:m: works on everyone. Hulk spikes the opponent into Doom's Rocks, which only hits them once or twice because you're doing it so late. This forces them to tech, allowing you to grab them. You can also go for cr. :l: here, if you think they'll stand block or try to jump out. Off cr. :l: you can do a 790 000 damage combo midscreen (1 bar/1 assist); the same combo does 900 000 in the corner. You'll be using Doom's Rocks here as well, he should recover in time, though to be honest I haven't tried it.

    cr.:l:, :m: xx :f::d::df:+:h: (all hits) > :h:, land, :l: + :a2: xx :f::d::df:+:l: (least hits) > :h:, :s:, j. :m:, j. :h:, j. :s:, Gamma Tsunami.

    In the corner, after j.:s:, call out Wesker's assist and do Gamma Crush. If Wesker is dead, use :l:-Gamma Wave xx Gamma Crush.

    Covering Hulk's Approach with Doom

    You also have different ways Doom Rock's can cover your approach, which I touched on in the general thread, but I might as well post it all here. Doom Rocks will be represented by :a2: in these examples.

    :a2:, :l:+:m: xx :d::df::f::uf:+:l: = Early Rocks. The longer you delay your jump canceled Gamma Charge, the further in front of you the Rocks will be. This basically makes Hulk's Gamma Charge like Captain America's Charging Star, since you'll blow through all projectiles.

    :l:+:m:, :a2: xx :d::df::f::uf:+:l: = Late Rocks. You'll be charging and the Rocks will follow you. This is better against characters with a poor projectile game; they'll block your Charge first, then the Rocks, making it completely safe. Both of these methods will make Gamma Charging really safe, even though there's a bit of finger gymnastics involved.

    I'm going to be recording a lot of the stuff I'm talking about tonight, and posting videos in the video thread. Stay tuned for those :). Hope my post will help your game!

    that's a good team. the doom stuff especially sounds really smary. but about that j.l / wesker assist. if they crouch block won't the j.l just whiff.

    I kind of assumed it works with Wesker the same way it works with X-23; they block the j.:l: first, then the assist.

    well after a little playing. Hulk/Dormmamu work pretty good, but im having a really hard time considering a third character. A lot of my buddies tend to rush down so i was considering if anyone knew a character that had good mixups or rush down options. Iv been playing deadpool a bit, but i dont know if i really should continue using him.

    haggar lariat assist stops rushdown. instant activation, and invulnerable for 3 spins. my team is hulk/sent(drones)/haggar(lariat)

    drones with gamma wave for long pressure,
    drones for cover when i rush in.
    haggar to stop all incoming pressure.

    forgot to add. if you hit with lariat assist, you can hit S for easy launch.

Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    I've been practicing around with this team:
    Hulk (Gamma Wave) [point]
    Dr. Doom (Molecular Shield)
    Haggar (Lariat)

    Lariat assist right into Hulk's qcb+2Atk Hyper seems like easy big damage, and Doom's assist is just excellent. I'm not too great with Haggar, but whatever. Of course, I have yet to try this team against a human opponent. Really want to give it a go against one of my friends.

    X-23 meshes so well with Hulk, I'm just beginning to realize this now.

    First of all, any of her combos that end with "j.:h: xx QCF+:l:, land, Ankle Slicer xx QCF+:atk::atk:" will always carry to the corner, even if you are starting from the opposite corner! So that means she gets a free DHC into Gamma Crush from anywhere on the screen, taking on an extra 300 000 damage to simple BnBs.

    Her Ankle Slicer assist hits OTG and you can do some filthy set ups after it. After a forward throw, press :l:+:m:+:a1: to hop over your downed opponent while calling an assist. Then just neutral jump and press j. :h:. Free unblockable! There are many more set ups like this one. But yeah, X-23 is really good with him.

    I wholeheartedly recommend using her, she's so fun and has a lot of potential. She's also strong because she can approach and mount an offense completely on her own, she doesn't rely on assists like Hulk. She also teams well with Dr. Doom, because his Molecular Shield assist forces your opponent to block her mix ups, and there are only so many times you can guess right until you get hit.

    That's the team I've been using since release; X-23 (Ankle Slicer) on point, Hulk (Gamma Wave) and Dr. Doom (Molecular Shield). I have Hulk on Gamma Wave to help Doom with zoning, it's also a really good assist for pushing people out and it OTGs, but the combo options are kind of limited.

    So, i've been using.
    Deadpool/Taskmaster/Hulk

    And was wondering. Would Deadpool (quick work) and taskmaster (B assist the tilted one) Would Work good with hulk?
    Since Deadpool's Quick work is low I'd say he should work well. Not sure about Taskmaster though.

    I've been running Hulk/Wesker/Phoenix. My reasoning was that I needed two guys who could build meter for Phoenix while doing plenty of damage with minimal meter usage, and I found Wesker and Hulk not only do those things, but work pretty well together (apparently the strategy guide says this). I'm not sure why it says they are good together, but for me it's Wesker's OTG assist and Hulk's AA assist.

    My favorite place to be is in the corner, because I can do this:

    :l:
    :h:
    :s:
    air:m:
    air:m:
    air:h:
    air:s:
    Wesker OTG assist
    cr.:h:
    :s:
    air:h:
    air:s:
    Gamma Wave :h:

    The damage is wonderful; 636.6k meterless and 876.6k with a Gamma Crush added on.

    HULK NO SETTLE FOR PUNY DAMAGE!

    What? Damage not good enough for you? Okay, well if you can manage it, in the corner do:
    air:h:
    air:s:
    cr.:h:
    :s:
    and from here you do the same combo from above, starting from the first air:m:. This will net you 707.8k damage meterless! METERLESS! Tack on a Gamma Crush to get 935.8k...and I just gagged!

    This is just a taste of what he can do with Wesker, but just know that with Wesker doing so well himself without much meter, while these guys may be an odd couple, they can make quick work of a team.

    Edit: I have since found out about Gamma Wave, I finish pretty much everything with it now. You're exactly right, Tofu, the damage is godlike in the corner after Gamma Crush. Gotta love the big man.

    You should always be doing Gamma Crush in the corner; Hulk can OTG by himself with Gamma Wave xx Gamma Crush. I have a 900 000 damage corner combo with just 1 bar, Hulk is a beast in the corner.

    I sort of forgot about her and was put off on using hulk because I really don't want to use wesker or sent just for OTG but she is actually alright.

    Hi there fellow Hulksters ;)
    I really like him and try to use him on point.
    So far i come up with a few different teams I am trying out, but this my first MvC and I need to learn to ropes. So I appreciate your help very much.

    Team Idea: Allround, have 3 different Fighters to work together.
    Hulk does great damage, and has alot endurance. My goal is to cover his/my weaknesses against zoning/keepaway. I am using Alpha assist atm with him for OTG.

    Teammates:
    -Spiderman, very agil and has alot of combos potential. Great movement. Good for rushdown and keep away. I am still undecided about assist.
    -Ironman, good assit with Bombs(OTG) to enlarge Hulks combos. Good for rushdown and zoning
    -Magneto, good allrounder (zoning/rushdown/mixups and combos), So far been using Emp assist.

    >Team1: Hulk/Spiderman/Ironman
    >Team2: Hulk/Spiderman/Magneto

    So this is my theory, but in fight it really looks different,.. ;(
    My Question: Would you please share any thoughts about that with me?

    Well first off, you need a projectile assist to cover Hulk as he rushes in, so Uni-Beam or EM Pulse is a must. You could use Spidey's Uppercut for his assist, since it never hurts to have an Anti-Air on your side. As for the team, I'd go with Hulk/Spidey/Mags. Shellhead's combos aren't as good as Magnus', plus he can finish them off with three powerful Hyper Combos (Tempest, Shockwave or Gravity Crush if you have lvl. 3).

    Been rolling with Hulk/Doom/X-23 myself. Team works very well together.

    Might have to try out Molecular shied assist with Doom though. I'm using his beam assist right now. Gamma wave assist with Hulk will win most projectile wars with Doom beam easy. Just gotta watch for beam hypers. Ankle Slicer with X-23 works great for extending Hulk combos in corner as well as setting up unblockables with Doom's air dash j.M.

    This team is pulling ahead as my main team over Doom/Trish/Dante right now.

    Cross-posting from the Thor forum:

    Just going to throw this out: Hsien Ko (Pendulum)/Thor (Mighty Spark)/Hulk (Gamma Wave) rocks the house. I lead with Ko then get her hyper armor going and get her out (tag, DHC, air exchange, etc.) asap, then start in with Thor or Hulk. The synergy is amazing. Ko's armored Pendulum is ridiculous as an assist, and it totally paves the way for the bruisers to get in and stay in. And they do sooo much damage, that the opponent has to be scared to punish because one slip and they eat 100% pretty easily. And between Mighty Spark and Gamma Wave, you can actually win some projectile wars (stops Sentinel assist cold). Thor and Hulk also both have specials that are their primary forms of movement (Mighty Strike/Smash and Gamma Charge), so that's some nice synergy, as well. And the DHC's are ridiculous. Catch them with Mighty Tornado and you get a free Gamma Crush. Catch them with Gamma Wave and you get a Mighty Thunder. And as for Hsien Ko, Tenraiha goes perfectly with Gamma Quake or Mighty Tornado, and Chireitou goes with Mighty Thunder or Gamma Tsunami. You guys REALLY should try this team.

    Trish on point using traps and quick rushdowns when needed, Morrigan giving me meter since it's so easy with Trish out there... and 3rd Hulk ready to smash.

    Since I have lots of meter it's also nice being able to DHC Hulks simple combos into a level 3 if need be, since they both have a very capable one.

    i've also been using x23 on point with hulk(forward rush assist) second and then iron man(beam assist). Its a pretty basic team gameplan wise, alot of x23 teleport mixups and easy dhc's

    another random shenanigan that seems to work is cancel stand heavy punch into in medium command grab. You walk a step, call assist(iron mans beam in my case), walk another step, dash jump cancell into jumping special, its pretty ambigous depending on when you jump cancell your dash
    are you ready?

    one Hulk team ive been using myself is hulk b/ zero b/ ryu AAA / so far its working pretty well for rushing down and controlling space as hulk can take alot of pain and dish it back out and zero can rush down like a beast or use his super to double his moves off point, which is nice, ryu's srk allows for pretty good coverage of the air and hulk and zero can keep him safe rather easily or you can rush down with ryu and throw hulk in for extra dmg and control, i will say this team gets shutdown somewhat when trying to fight fireball wars, but that weakness only goes as far as you let it when all 3 chars have a solid answer for fireball spam (hulk has gamma wave, zero can just teleport , and ryu and just go LOL and beam super his way through.)

    Rushdown. Had no idea when to attack or what to do. I got lucky a few times with random gamma crush but nothing smart

    Pushblock his multi-hitting normals as early as possible, then whiff punish with st. C. I find that makes Zero respect you a little bit, but if he's covered by Sent drones, you have to guess pretty much. Pusblock is the best way to deal with rushdown overall though.

    What happens when they get me in the corner? Is there anything I can do besides random Gamme Crush? I'm thinking about putting Haggar on my team just for Double Lariat

    If he's just starting his rush, Gamma Wave shuts him down. If he's in the middle of his rush, pushblock then go for a Light AA Gamma Charge. If you hit, launch into an easy air combo.

    Right now I'm experimenting with Zero and Hulk, I just need someone to fill that gap. I think I may go with Morrigan but not sure.

    zero and hulk and rush down pretty well together from what ive seen so for your 3rd char you really have alot of options, you could choose a zoning char like morrigan or ryu, pick another rush down char like wolv or joe , or a defence char like doom or arthur, it really depends on your play style and what your trying to do, personally i stick ryu due to he can do a bit of everything and his anti air assit can bring out the pain for ppl dumb enough to try to jump in on hulk, but do what you want and see how it works.

    Thanks for the input.

    I really like to rush down so I may try out Wolverine or X23. But I may also go with Ryu just because he's a great all around character.
