- ''(...) we are not going for ruling the world. We want to rule the WORLDS of the Webcomics Universe!—-Evil Overlords Chronicles, page 2.
The Crossover Wars was a Massive Multiplayer Crossover that involved over 50 different WebComics and three forums, and spanned more than 1500 comic strips over a 9 month period during the year of 2007.
The Wars were more or less broken up into several smaller fronts:
- The Adult Wars
- The Fantasy Wars
- Jenny Everywhere & the Crossing Over Worlds
- The Forum Wars
- The Sci-Fi Wars
- The Squirrel Wars
- The Super Wars
- The WCA Hunt
A hub with links to all the strips can be found here.
Provides Examples of:
- Cool Gate: The DRACO (Dimensional Reality Arcane Crossover Organizer) used by the Overlords & and the SMOG (Semi-Mystical Otherworldly Gate) portal used by Scale and her allies.
- Eviler than Thou: Killroy from Killroy And Tina found out that Overlords are even bigger bastards than him when they imprisoned him.
- Fanservice: Scale's guest-artist tries to convince her to do some fanservice for the readers, going as far as drawing one-way mirrors to the bathroom... unfortunately with no success.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Parodied by both Mindmistress and Lightbringer with members of Evil, Inc..
- Mister Threat:I am your undoing - Mister Threat!Lighbringer:...That is by far the worst supervillain name I've ever heard.Mister Threat: I...What?!Lightbringer: I mean at last "Mister Sinister" rhymes and roles off the tongue nicely. You just sound like a vaguely idiotic silver-age loser who sends cryptic messages to the college professor who gave him a "D" in art classes.Mister Threat: Oh, you are so going to die!
- No Fourth Wall: The Overlords know they are webcomics characters.
- Scale is fully aware of herself being character, carrying a lengthy conversation with her guest-artist, going as far as turning a mirror, showing the artist working at the comic while naked on the couch.
- Averted with Mindmistress who clearly thinks that everybody who believes that she's only a comic-book character is insane.
