I'll freely admit that this is a weird one. I don't know why I like this particular fantasy...

What's better than one heart-stopplingly gorgeous, completely invincible superwoman? How about a whole platoon, or an army of identical superwoman. Nobody can tell them apart and they are all as equally beautiful as they are powerful. Whether they use their powers for good or for ill, they present a frightening threat to their opponents.

Some images, and a bonus short story inspired the first one...

Attack of the Clones

Nobody could say where she had come from, or how she could do the things she did, or even why she looked so much like a young human woman; all we knew was that she was here, and she had incredible powers.

There was a mixture of fear and anticipation among the people of New York City as they watched her fly towards the United Nations building to address the General Assembly. Billions watched on television around the world, speculating about what would happen. Had she come to be a friend to humanity, or an enemy?

They marvelled as she effortlessly floated in the air in front of the podium. If she had not been flying, then she would have been mistaken for an actress, or model, with her flawless beauty and long, blond hair. She was dressed in what appeared to be a simple, two-piece bathing suit. When she spoke, her voice echoed around the enormous chamber with no need for electrical amplification, carrying her simple message to every delegate, and to the watching masses of humanity.

“You will surrender now, or be destroyed,” she said.

The General Assembly erupted into pandemonium as soon as the translations of her words reached the ears of the delegates. Normally mild-mannered delegates hurled epithets at the mysterious woman and declared, one after the other, that their proud nation would never surrender to anyone, let alone a solitary female.

She listened to the multi-lingual cacophony for a few minutes, showing no sign that she was paying attention to anything that was being said. Then, without warning, twin beams of blue light burst from her eyes, reducing the Spanish Ambassador to ash in a fraction of a second. She turned her gaze on the rest of the assembly in turn, burning all that the beams touched and turning the chamber into a charnel house, over the course of a few minutes. Some tried to hide behind their desks, but she simply floated higher into the air and rained death upon them from above. Security guards fired on her with pistols at first, and then with automatic weapons, but found that she was as bulletproof as she was merciless. They did not survive her return fire.

The Battle of Manhattan raged for two days. On one side was a solitary, flying woman with the strength of a thousand men and the ability to project deadly energy beams from her eyes. On the other side was a joint task force of soldiers from the United States and Canada. Shortly before sunset of the second day, humanity stood triumphant. Manhattan was in ruins, but the alien woman was defeated, felled by a powerful, combined barrage of artillery and air-to-ground missiles.

The whole planet celebrated.

Twelve hours later, two more women appeared above New York City. They were identical in appearance and clothing to each other, and to the original super-woman who had fallen in Manhattan the night before. Their abilities were not identical, however. They were impervious to the attacks that had killed their predecessor; artillery shells bounced off of their skin and missiles had no effect. They were also stronger, faster, and their eye beams were more powerful and had twice the range.

The battle resumed and became a war, a war that raged across half of the North American continent for three months. Cities were levelled, millions died, and the landscape itself was scarred and broken. Soldiers and airmen from a dozen countries fought the two identical superwomen. The deadly duo were never far apart, killing and destroying in unison. They never slept and they never stopped.

In the final battle of the war, thousands of soldiers sacrificed themselves to keep the two women occupied in the ruins of Cleveland, while a nuclear strike was on its way. The two women and the army fighting them were obliterated by hydrogen bombs, along with the rest of Cleveland.

There was no global celebration this time, just a sombre reflection on the terrible cost of victory.

Twelve hours after the defeat of the two women, four more appeared in the skies over Cleveland. As before, all four were identical to each other and to their three predecessors. They began to be referred to as the “clone girls”, as the war resumed.

The four clones were even stronger, deadlier, and more invulnerable than the previous two clones had been. They could move so fast that the human eye had trouble following them. They were each as strong as 100,000 men. Their eye beams could burn city blocks to ash in a second. A repeat of the Cleveland maneuver proved how tough they were, when the four women came flying out of several mushroom clouds, completely unharmed.

Working as a well-oiled team, they continued the reign of destruction. The four women were a whirling dervish of death, impervious to all counter-attacks. The demand for humanity to surrender was not repeated, and the clone girls ignored any attempts to communicate, negotiate, or give up.

The war raged across the surface of the planet for two years. Humanity fell back, again and again, unable to slow the women down for even a second. North America was reduced to a shattered, lifeless wasteland. The same fate befell South America and Asia. The four women advanced on Europe, driving hordes of desperate refugees ahead of them.

Within the bowels of the Large Hadron Collider facility, buried beneath the Franco-Swiss border, human scientists made a startling breakthrough in high-energy physics. Their discovery was weaponised in record time, and deployed against the rampaging clones as they laid siege to Budapest. The clones fell, their gorgeous, yet mighty bodies torn to subatomic mist by the extraordinary energies of the Hadron Cannon.

Nobody celebrated, or reflected on the victory. The remnants of the human race waited to see what would happen next.

Twelve hours later, eight clone girls appeared in the skies above Budapest and proceeded to lay waste to the city in the space of a few minutes. The Hadron Cannon was ineffective; the clone girls laughed as the energies which had torn apart their predecessors were deflected from their skin. Nobody was surprised. The human race gave up the struggle and hunkered down to wait for the end as the eight clones worked together to exterminate them.

The last human city to fall was Perth, Australia. The clone girls arrived and spent some time frolicking on the beach, well aware of the panic that gripped the city. A group of scientists at the university worked to put the finishing touches to a device. It wasn’t a weapon, or a means of defence against the unstoppable clones, it was a simple transmitter, designed to broadcast a message to the stars. The message was simple: if this woman appears and tells you to surrender, please do it. For your own sakes, just surrender.

The eight clone women finished their frolics and turned their gazes to Perth. They licked their lips with anticipation and then began their work.

I'm with you on this one. I've always been one to go over the top with my fantasies, though!

Interesting idea, geekseven and nice short story. As if the power of one isn't enough at the end, there are now 8 of those girls. :lol:
