New York City

"Rhino. Lift that debris."

Untouchable frowned as Rhino stomped past him and jumped down into the destroyed sewer below. Scorcher and Shocker both glanced at the crowds forming around them.

"People are staring boss." Shocker muttered. "Want me to tell 'em to bug off?"

Untouchable sighed as he opened his mouth to speak.

"Still no sign of him boss." Steel Vulture said through the communicator. Untouchable glanced up to see Vulture fly by over head.

"Right. Search the surrounding blocks. He can't have gone far." Untouchable tapped his foot impatiently for a few seconds.

"...I think Rhino might have bumped his head or something..." Scorcher said awkwardly. "Want me to go check if he's alright?"

KRASH!

Untouchable, Shocker and Scorcher all jumped back in surprise as the robotic remains of the Hydro Man Drone were thrown in front of them. Rhino climbed up a few seconds later.

"There ya go boss." Rhino muttered as he stood up. Untouchable straightened up. "Ya gonna radio Fisk and tell him we got it?"

"DON'T do that again." Untouchable said through gritted teeth. "Not only did you endanger the team but you startled me and risked destroying our main source of intel!" He gestured at the Drone's cracked data feed. Rhino shrugged and stomped off down the street before sitting down on top of a car. Crushing it to pieces.

"Untouchable." A cold voice said.

"Octopus? I was just about to call you." Untouchable said, he decided to let the Rhino matter go. "We've got the Drone. Need you here as soon as possible to-"

"The Drone will no longer be required." Octopus said calmly. "I've got a positive lock on Spider-Man."

Untouchable's eyes widened in surprise. "We shall not suffer a Spider to live..." He muttered. The rest of the Syndicate looked at him clueless. "Idiots... what are you waiting for? It's time to kill Spider-Man." The Syndicate activated their armor's jetpacks and shot into the sky.

Spiders HQ, Med Lab, 20 Minutes Ago...

"So your name's Whiplash right?" Ben Kuiros asked gingerly as he looked at the injured mutant lying on the hospital bed. "Sorry for kicking you..."

"Humph...." Whiplash replied. Ben shrugged as he jumped down from the wall. He was still wearing his slightly torn Spider Costume and as he glanced around the med bay he wondered what horrors these people had been through.

"Good job Ben." Madame Web said calmly as she walked over. "If you hadn't got these mutants here in time I don't think they'd have lasted another day."

Ben smiled. "Well it could've gone better." He admitted. "Well at least nobody got seriously hurt!"

"Wrong." A cold voice said. Ben turned to see Erik Maystrike walking towards him. Pushing past the Spiders' resident Doctors. "You hurt your own kind. You hurt my allies." Ben backed away as Erik moved so close to him they may as well have been kissing.

"Well... you started it." Ben replied. Erik opened his mouth to respond only to be distracted by the arrival of Toad.

"What's important is that we're all safe now!" Toad said as he bounced up and down in the air nervously. "Right guys?"

Erik opened his mouth to speak before deciding to leave the situation alone. Madame Web took him by the shoulder and escorted him towards a hospital bed.

"He's kind of a jerk!" Ben muttered to Toad. Toad nodded in agreement.

"Well if you were raised in a torture camp I'd think you'd be a bit starked off as well!" He replied.

Erik winced as the needle stabbed into his arm. He glanced at Madame Web who smiled.

"Oh stop being such a baby!" She said with a smile. Erik gritted his teeth angrily.

"The last time... someone injected me... was to prep for surgery..." Erik replied. Madame Web pulled the needle out and placed a small piece of cotton as blood started to well up.

"Darwin said you're part of his new X-Men group right?" Web asked as she walked away with the needle. Erik nodded. "Your blood sample should help us determine what your powers are and whether or not you have a secondary mutation... 'Magneto'."

"She's one hell of a woman."Darwin muttered as he stood next to Erik.

"You've worked with her before I take it." Erik muttered. Darwin stiffened.

"THAT. Is a story for another day." Darwin muttered before walking off.

"The Scorpion armor is ready sir!" A lab technician muttered as the steel cylinder containing the green suit was lowered to the ground. Desmond Fisk smiled.

"Prepare it for launch. Inform the Syndicate it's on it's way and get a goddamn pilot ready!"

"WHAT THE STARK IS THIS?!" A loud voice screamed. Fisk turned around to see Warren walking towards him.

"What exactly do you want Dr Warren?" Fisk asked uninterested.

"We agreed on SIX members! If Stevenson realizes you're using the Scorpion armor we're all dead!"

Fisk grabbed Warren by the throat before raising him into the air.

"I. Have. Had. ENOUGH of you, you pathetic little worm!" Fisk screamed into Warren's face. "I thought the Commander had killed you! Then a starking clone of the original shows up!" Warren gargled as he struggled for breath. Fisk released his throat and allowed him to drop to the ground. "NOW GET ME MY GODDAMN SCORPION PILOT!" Fisk screamed at the lab technician. "I want ALL OF THEM READY! The Mysterio Drones, Boomerang. ALL OF THEM!" Fisk stomped out the hallway and shoved past several security guards. Dr Warren coughed for breath before adjusting his glasses. A look of pure hatred in his eyes.

"The armor is on Level A-31." A voice said in Warren's ear. "You know what to do."

Warren calmly stood up and adjusted his tie. The Lab Technician glanced up at him. "Sir? Are you okay?"

"Never better." He said as he walked towards the elevator.

Just Outside Spiders HQ.

"So where have I seen you before Moon Knight?" Ben asked as he walked down the street. Moon Knight (In civilian garb) walking by his side. He was of medium height with green eyes. His hair was black and he had a spider tattoo over his right hand.

"Dude. The name's not Moon Knight! How many starking times do I have to tell you?!" He asked with a look of annoyance. "My name's Nathan! Nathan Riley!"

Ben smiled. "I can understand why you like to keep your name a secret!"

"I told you like 15 times!"

Ben pushed carefully through the crowd as he walked into a small shop. Nathan followed shortly.

"Hi Marcus!" Ben said as he walked up to the counter. The smell of delicious food flowed into his nostrils. "We need a dozen pizzas!"

Marcus was an aging, bold man with a mustache. "A dozen pizzas? What type?"

Nathan chuckled. "No. We need a dozen of every type of pizza. There's like 15 types right? So that's..."

"180."

"Yeah! 180 pizzas!" Nathan turned around. "Hey thanks m-"

Hard light tentacles gripped Nathan's shirt and launched him into the air. He was thrown aside as a man wearing a metal harness pushed through the crowd. Ben stared in surprise. He still wasn't used to losing his spider sense. He glanced aside to make sure Nathan was okay. He heard a groan and smiled.

"Who are you supposed to be?" Ben asked. "Some kind of Iron Squid?"

The Squid Dude frowned as his arms raised into the air.

"My name is Doctor Octopus child." He said through his cold metal respirator. "I believe my namesake was one of your predecessors greatest opponents. I plan to tear your skin from your bones."

Ben shrugged. "Whatever! I've taken down tougher losers then you! And they only had 2 arms!"

Several figures dropped down besides the Doctor. A man in a trench coat calmly stepped forward as Ben realized who these people were.

"Syndicate." Untouchable said calmly. "Attack."

Warren nodded as he tapped the security code into the device. The door opened reveling a green costume hanging from the ceiling. Warren pulled the mask off and placed it over his own head.

"...yes..." He said as he stepped into the light.

"Good. What's the first order of business?"

"Kill the Syndicate."

In the last chapter you said they were hard light constructs. Don't think they can be both. Maybe time for an edit.

@wildvine: I'm not gonna lie though. I've completely forgotten what the original plan for this story was.

Except for having Spidey and Magneto get into a fight with someone (I think it was Stryfe) that ends up levelling a building.
