I've hit a conundrum with how Piercing works against other types of "bystanders", compared to Human Shields and Hidden Witnesses.

More specifically regarding Madelyne Pryor's Demon Goblins.
They become Bystanders when you defeat them, but they're Demons when they're on Madelyne.

So I played it like getting 6 Piercing damage in a turn allows me to fight Madelyne (disregarding the Goblins, as per what Piercing damage does), but the Goblins stay on her, since they're not Bystanders, hence no auto-rescue.

Is my interpretation correct?

I think it's the same logic as with Human Shields => once you bypass them, you also rescue them.

Although...in the X-men rules it says that Human Shields are still bystanders. As you say, the Secret Wars rules state that once they are near Madelyne Pryor they cease to be bystanders. Thus, you ignore them as fighting restrictions, but you don't rescue them.

Devin Low (the designer) agrees that you bypass the Goblins, but you don't rescue them (I've asked him on the Solo boardgamers legendary facebook group).
