Spikes (Planet Hulk)

The effects of Spikes

Spikes is a deadly mutagenic bio-weapon from Planet Hulk and one of the main ways in which the tyrant known as the Red King kept power over his people, he would periodically release the Spikes via advanced technology and mutate thousands of his own people into violent monsters that often killed their own families and friends before purging the area using small nukes.

The Red King hid his involvement in the Spikes outbreaks and instead became hailed as a hero for his efforts in eradicating what they believed was a horrific disease - ultimately the Red King was exposed and suffered a fitting fate as the final victim of Spikes.
