History

The Defenders' existence was exposed to the general public when Dollar Bill's documentary aired on television. Sagittarius and Libra formed a band of criminals to commit crimes, claiming to be Defenders in order to ruin the group's good name.

The villainous group 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 were bolstered by new "try out" members, bandwagoning off the film's popularity. A group led by Hercules battled Sagittarius's team until she knocked them out with a mental burst. Libra's group was also single-handedly bested by a furiously berserk and hallucinating Valkyrie.

Following the battle, Sagittarius's group was taken into police custody, while Libra's team presumably escaped. They disbanded after their defeat, never reforming even though many members have worked together since.
