The Defenders' existence is exposed to the general public when Dollar Bill's documentary airs on television. Sagittarius and Libra form a band of criminals to commit crimes, claiming to be Defenders in order to ruin the group's good name.
The villainous group would split into two teams: Sagittarius leading Porcupine, Blob, Beetle, Whirlwind, Batroc, Electro, Looter and Plantman. Libra commanding Boomerang, Joe the Gorilla, Toad, Melter, Leap-Frog, Shocker and Pecos.
Both squads run foul of the real Defenders, whose ranks are bolstered by new "try out" members, bandwagoning off the film's popularity. A group led by Hellcat battles Sagittarius's team until she knocks them out with a mental burst. Libra's group is also single-handedly bested by a furiously berzerk and hallucinating Valkyrie.
Following the battle, Sagittarius's group is taken into police custody, while Libra's team presumably escapes. They disband after their defeat, never reforming even though many members have worked together since.
