The Sinister Initiative's weaponry

The Sinister Initiative, otherwise known as the Sinister Six, is a superhuman program founded by Gustav Fiers and Norman Osborn to serve as Oscorp Industries' countermeasure against S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Avenger Initiative. The idea was to bring together a select group of individuals to do the dirty work the Avengers never could in keeping the world under HYDRA's government control. The Initiative was originally supposed to have a controlled Spider-Man be the team leader, but the resulting coincidental accident that led to Peter Parker gaining his spider-powers has since led to Spider-Man opposing the Sinister Six's members out of a sense of it being the right thing to do.

They are currently being assembled to serve as a strike squadron within the ranks of HAMMER.
