Despite this it is still unknown if the Invasion Force are a legal force or an illegal paramilitary front - regardless of whether they are sponsored by a larger organization or not the Invasion Force are extremely brutal and seem to be under the direct command of Noah Adam Mahn.
The Invasion Force's use of extreme force is widely seen in the comics and due to the comic catering to older audiences the brutality of the regime is not often shunned from (in an infamous panel the Invaders destroyed an entire space-station, while an infant watched in fascination, unaware it's death was imminent).
They have also wiped out entire planets (as befell Alden's "sister" world, Eden) and are most infamous for kidnapping and enslaving the natives of Alden that display superhuman powers (known in-universe as hybrids).
Prisoners are stripped naked, often forced to wear mind-collars that inhibit the use of their hybrid abilities and are frequently forced to perform horrific acts to prove loyalty to their captors (for example Vague was forced to drink the blood of Terrorbull to prove her loyalty and also had her face scarred to mark her as a "Tracker" - her family was also ruthlessly executed (save her young sister, Alley-Cat) ).
The Invasion Force have also frequently conducted Frankenstein-like experiments on Earth animals, creating mutants such as Micro and Warfare (both of whom rebelled and view their former masters as "evil").
The most promiment members of the Invasion Force so far next to Noah Adam Mahn are the Hunters and the favored tools by which the invaders abduct Alden citizens is the Omega Hunters - Sentinel-like robots that are designed to resemble human skeletons.
This skeleton-motive is also seen in low-ranking members of the Invasion Force, who were called "Skull Hunters" as a result in earlier issues - many "Skull Hunters" were not human, being either cyborgs or advanced machines.
