They were prepared for fighting the Outriders. They were prepared for evacuating civilians. They were prepared for the invasion itself. They were not prepared for Supergiant.
She chose her minions and set them to task: finding and retrieving the Infinity Stones for her. Sensing the presence of one of their mistresses in her mental domination, the Outriders did not attack any of the Earth's defenders whom Supergiant had selected as her puppets. However, they did still attack those who the puppets themselves decided to target.
As part of their bidding, they encountered other Earthlings determined to stave off the invasion, and their purpose became to stop the resistance by any means necessary...

Spider-Man stood high on a rooftop, overtop a swarming horde of the Outriders fighting the resistance to his mistress and her father below. His attention focused onto the holographic display at hand. The truth was the boy had a lot of tricks up his sleeve. A lot of power to use, but he held back. A lot. The boy Peter Parker didn't want to break bones, cripple people or take their life all together. But with the influence pulsating through his mind the Spider-Man did not care. A whistling sound filled the air as a rocket whizzed through the air. It was surprising the speed it had gotten there given it's long journey from upstate New York but the 17-A rocket whizzed onto the scene and broke apart to reveal the golden control node. Propelling itself it maneuvered through the air to smack into the former hero's back and the suit unfurled. Nanites running across his limbs and body as it over took the red and blue suit and replaced it with a sleek metal scarlet and gold.
"Ew," The spider spat in disgust as he looked over his arms. "New car smell." The suit shifted at his will and four legs extended from the center of his back. They clinked as they touched down to the ground and lifted the boy off of his feet. Moving to the edge of the roof the golden legs carried him over the edge. Walking slowly down the wall the eyes of the Iron Spider focused in on the battle at hand.
Watching from his perch Spider-Man observed the destruction of the city he host loved with no regrets. Completely unfazed by the pain and sufferering of those who fell victim to the Outriders advances. The peons were of non of his concern. He would watch, waiting for his real prey to show themselves. Only then would the puppet of Supergiant make his move.
It was hard to say why he was doing what he was, but Teddy just knew that he had to serve his mistress and do as she said. The feeling that it was wrong was there in his mind, but it was more like a little voice that he heard and one that he ignored as he tore through the city. Shifting his shape as he went along, he more resembled a monstrous form than what he normally looked like in his Hulkling form. The spikes that formed off his body at his elbows and knees were used along with the more hardened body form he now bore as he made small work of anything that got in his way. All of the destruction that he cause with his new form was good though ... at least that was what the overriding voice in his head kept saying.
Still, there was that little nagging voice that told him this was wrong as he threw another car only have it smash into another car. However, the minor destruction was only pass the time as he waited for something ... someone real to fight. The one that commanded him wanted the others protecting this planet to fall and he would take them out as she commanded. First though, they had to show and if ripping this city apart got their attention faster, all the better then. Catching sight of another that the mistress commanded, he nodded at his companion as he ripped up a light pole and started to use it as a club.
Staff Note: Guido's 72-hour response window expired at 2:49pm EST 7/11. He may now be skipped this round by @William Kaplan

“Having just fallen through his portal...well fallen might have not been the best way to describe. Well certainly not the most truthful way of describing what really happened. In all honesty he was thrown forcefully through his own swirl of energies, caught completely off guard by some out fo this world monstrocity that could of put H.R. Gieger’s representations to shame. IT was really something to see...if you wanted to be haunted by nightmares for the rest of your life. Honestly Billy had no idea how he was going to live with the horrors of the day. He supposed like everything else he’d just deal with it one day at a time. Still now was not the time to focus that.
As a massive swirl of purple energy manifested seemingly out of nowhere, spitting not only Billy out on to the ground, just hard enough to land with a loud Thud, but a one fo the aliens too. Dazed as they were Billy didn’t give the creature a chance to regain his balance. Pushing himself off the ground, Billy narrowed his sights on the monster as he tapped into his abilities, manipulating the telekinetic energies, he flung the nearest thing around him at the monster, squashing him with a car with such haste the moster didn’t have time to cry out in shock. Thankfully.
Getting himself up to his knees, Billy panted heavily as the pounding of his own heart told him that he was still alive. He wasn’t entirely sure where he was. He hadn’t exactly had a place in mind when he created his portal, which meant he could of been anywhere. Though by the looks of it he was still in the city so that was something. “Small miracles….” he whispered to himself as he got up finally noticing Teddy and realizing how more aggresive he looked. With random spikes portruding from his body.
“Teddy...thank god your alive…hell’s breaking loose...we need to regroup with the young avengers.” HE said his panic and concern getting the better of him a s he quickl approached his boyfriend, relishing in the feeling of security that he seemed to emminate. “ We need to stick together...and dude you totally missed it i freaking summoned lightning from the sky….it was awesome…” He added his voice an odd mixture of maniac energy only now noticing the look on his boyfriends face. "Uhhh...Teddy ais everything alright?"
Sera glanced around as she kicked an alien back against a building. She couldn’t believe this was her life. They were defending Earth against some crazy people, well aliens. Did you still call them people? Or did they have a different word to describe themselves? Well, she’d still call them people until she was told otherwise. Grabbing her pocket knife, she shoved it up the alien’s stomach as the alien came running after her, faster than she anticipated. These things were fast, she’d give them that. Yanking the knife out, she looked around to see a few more. “Kill each other,” she said, allowing her voice to go smooth and honey-like, making the few aliens around her turn to each other and attack.
She turned around to look for someone else when she saw Billy doing some of his own things. He looked a little worse for wear, that was for sure. Hopefully they could stop these things soon. Where was everyone else? She knew she couldn’t do this by herself, she didn’t have many things for her to go up against these things besides fighting. Luckily they seemed to be easily manipulated so she could use her powers to make them go up against each other instead of her or anyone else. Blinking, she frowned at Teddy, seeing him look a little different than usually. “Uh…. You good?” She swallowed a little bit before looking around again, this time higher, to see Spider-Man. Why wasn’t he coming down there to help them?
Sera couldn’t worry about that at the moment. They had to make sure there weren’t any aliens coming to attack them. She just hoped that he was okay and not dying up there. That was the only reason she could think of that would make him not help them. “Billy, Teddy, we need to create a perimeter, make sure the citizens don’t come this way.” Out of the corner of her eye, she saw a woman walking towards the destruction and cursed. “Stay back,” she said, using her honey-like voice, letting the power seep through. “Walk away. Find shelter.” Why did people have to want to see destruction instead of using their self-preservation? Turning back at Billy and Teddy, she frowned. If Billy thought something might be wrong with Teddy then they were in deep trouble…. “Yeah, you good?” she asked him.
His allies on the scene brought a smile to the twisted Spider's face underneath the metal mask. He knew they would be obstacles. Teddy had taken a wicked shape that filled the boy's chest with glee as he descended onto their allies. It was a joy to see the shapeshifter's more wicked side taking to the surface. Truly a horror though it didn't seem to convince Billy of his boyfriends malicious intent.
Sera was at work as well. He watched as she turned a group of the Outriders around to demolish themselves as she worked on evacuating the civilians. What a waste. There was a war at hand, why bother saving a few more lives when there was so much more at hand. Retracting the metal legs back into the suite Spider-Man dropped from the brick into a low swing. Teddy and Billy could have their lovers squabble. He'd help if needed but Sera drew his attention, something about a red head. A call popped up on the HUD of his suit. 'Gwen Stacy', but the mind controlled hero swiped it off to the side. It would go to missed call on the phone deep under his suit. There WAS a war at hand.
The four Outriders that were tearing themselves apart by Sera were impaled by the metal legs as they extended out to catch his landing. Looming over Sera the scarlet and gold suit shone in the sun as he moved up beside her.
"Let them come.." His voice carried a more sinister tone than it had ever before. Though the girl he spoke with he would consider a friend she was now nothing more than a means to an end. "It doesn't matter which way they run, the invasion is everywhere. There's only really one more way to save them Sera." Three of the metal arms wrapped out as if to block her path of escape before she were to catch on to his wicked mindset.
"Tell me where the TIme Stone is." The fourth leg was hovering behind, coiled like a venomous snake. As if to punctuate his point it shot out towards her shoulder it's sharp point aiming to pierce her flesh.
