''The Crossover Wars'' was a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover that involved over ''[[http://www.dragoneers.com/crossoverwars/Warmongers.html 50 different WebComics and three forums]]'', and spanned more than 1500 comic strips over a 9 month period during the year of 2007.

It started with two WebComics, ''CameoComic'' where TheHero came from, & ''EvilOverlordsUnited'', where [[VillainProtagonist the villains]] came from, and from then on Chaos erupted in the worlds of Webcomics.

The Wars were more or less broken up into several smaller fronts:
* [[{{Hentai}} The Adult Wars]]
* [[{{Fantasy}} The Fantasy Wars]]
* [[JennyEverywhere Jenny Everywhere & the Crossing Over Worlds]]
* [[RunningTheAsylum The Forum Wars]] [[invoked]]
* [[ScienceFiction The Sci-Fi Wars]]
* [[SideQuest The Squirrel Wars]]
* [[SuperHero The Super Wars]]
* [[BreakingTheFourthWall The WCA Hunt]]

A hub with links to all the strips can be found [[http://www.dragoneers.com/crossoverwars/ here]].

--->'''Mister Threat:''' I...What?!
--->'''Lightbringer:''' I mean at last "[[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Mister Sinister]]" rhymes and roles off the tongue nicely. You just sound like a vaguely idiotic [[SilverAge silver-age]] loser who sends cryptic messages to the college professor who gave him a "D" in art classes.
