This is a tough one, I feel like Iron Fist and Luke Cage might win, but we also can't forget about Venom losing control of his symbiote and Scarlet Spider can probably still turn into that spider god creature which really is unknown how strong he is at that form. Then again Iron fist's energy damaged the Phoenix force. I'm gonna say Heroes For Hire just because I'm guessing Iron Fist's energy is stronger than Scarlet Spider at his spider god form and Luke Cage's skin should resist Venom's bullets and melee.

Oh yeah I'm trying to deliver this secret hard drive can you help me? By the way my secret identity is at risk and I might find clues to this mysterious armor I wear. Duke wished he could say that. He did think it was odd for someone in the slums to ask if he needed any help. Duh! Duke thought to himself. This is obviously the guy I'm suppose to bring the hard drive to, why else would he ask that. Duke pulls out the hard drive. "Do you know anything about this?" Before he could answer Duke hears the sound of a rifle loading a bullet. "GET DOWN" he pushes the stranger, who oddly had a strong stance almost as if Duke got lucky. The bullet missed, thanks to the tech in his body he was able to pick up specific sounds from a distance, mainly life threatening sounds. This suit was better than anything Duke has ever stolen. "Here!" Duke tossed the drive to the stranger. Keep that safe while I handle this.
The red and white suit started to form around Duke's skin, the mask crawling up his neck swallowing his head. For a moment there is darkness then the red tinted digital screen appears, placing a target on the sniper. "Third floor window, yellow building" Wings rip through the back of his sweat shirt and flames ignite. Buildings blurred then Duke was holding the rifle to the snipers neck on the ground. "So you're the guy. I don't know why they worried about you" "Wroooong guuuuu." the man was choking. "Mr Niles." The agent's ,from before, voice could be heard through Duke's helmet. "How did you?" "Doesn't matter you have the wrong man, the sniper is ours, he was shooting the threat known as Canine" Duke released the sniper "$#@!" Duke jumped off the roof and flew down hoping Canine was still down there, if not he would have to track him.
The Maracanazinho, a beautiful indoor stadium in Rio De Janeiro. One of the biggest boxing matches of the year was happening in this venue and Duke wasn’t even in it. “Barry why do I have to be here?” Duke sighed. “I rather fight than watch.” Come on kid you know we are getting paid handsomely to promote the fight, plus it doesn’t hurt to study your competition capeesh.” Barry replied.
Duke was bored as ever drinking down the last of his scotch. The burn goes down his throat and consumes his breath. This wasn’t his first drink and he needed to rush to the bathroom. “Got to take a leak Barry” Duke shouted as he ran out. “Kid’s got a bladder of a little girl. Complains like one too”
Duke went to the bathroom accompanied by his body guards. Duke walks up to the urinal. “Do you guys mind?” Duke questioned, rhetorically of course. “Sir we are here to watch and protect you” The guard’s deep voices echoing in the bathroom. “Yeah well I’m going to the stole I can’t go while you guys watch me” As Duke handled his business he suddenly heard the sound of two thumps to the floor. Duke opens the door looking down at his two body guards unconscious on the ground, then he looks up at a man in a suit with glasses.
“Mr. Niles” The man says calmly, “Put your fists down I wouldn’t dare fighting the renowned Light heavy weight champion or the superhero Cicada” Duke goes for I don’t know what you’re talking about route. “Who is that? I mean I have heard of Longshot and that Renegade Lantern guy and there are so many..” “Don’t BS a master BSer Mr. Niles, you would be surprised what the government knows” He interrupted. “Wait you work for the CIA? FBI?” The man smiles “I never said which government I worked for, anyway let’s skip the small talk, autographs and get to the point.” He holds up a small rectangular device. “This is a very important hard drive, many people have killed and been killed for this device. The information on this device is so important that it needs to be nomadic so it’s never tracked. Even now he will find it soon, so I’m giving you a job being a courier. You’re gonna take this drive go through the slums of Rio and meet with another agent.” He informed.
“Why don’t you deliver it yourself?” “And risk fighting that psycho, I’m good but not good enough to fight him. And I have other reasons.” “Who is he anyway?” “You’ll find out soon enough. And I would do as you’re told this way no one else has to know about your secret identity. And maybe we can tell you more about that suit bonded to your body” “What do you know about it?!” “I would get going now; you will be contacted when necessary and don’t use your suit unless he comes.” The lights went out for a second and came back on. He was gone.
Duke threw on his sweatshirt, hood covering his face and left the stadium. After a bus trip and a good walk he found the slums of Rio. The homes and paths split into so many different directions and the height and structure of these buildings vary, a real urban jungle, a free runner’s paradise, and a place where trouble was around every corner. You never see this part of Rio in the movies and now Duke knew why. He wasn’t too worried he could handle himself and how bad could this guy be who wants the hard drive?
-While Duke Niles (Cicada) is in Rio to promote a fight for another fellow boxer, a government agent approaches him with a hard drive telling him to deliver it back to Boston. He also threatens to expose his identity if he doesn't do so. Duke has no choice but to accept, but little does he know that Liam Szever (Canine) is on his trail. This hard drive contains files that Canine has been trying to keep secret. If Duke doesn't watch his back he could be next on Canine's kill list.
