- PHASE ONE - PROLOGUE
While not posted initially as being part of the crossover, these stories help
establish some of the background for it. Where Triton got the motivation to
raid Haven, how the Conclave of Super-Villains captured its pawns and drew in
the other heroes.
- PHASE TWO - DIVERSIONS
In order to keep most of the world's well-trained superhumans occupied, the
CSV sets a mass-bombing plot in motion while also acting against Warden in
Manhattan (which is not so much to occupy Warden as it is meant to distract
other criminal powers). The crossover officially starts here.
- CSV #4 - Collision Course: ASH and STRAFE follow a trail
of clues left by Rebus and Triton, coming to the realization that a series of
bombs would go off at midnight, January 1, 2024. The targets: Anchors, their
elimination being another of the CSV's goals. Meanwhile, Manhattan's major
powers are collected together to witness the CSV's power as a mystical golem
is sent to kill Warden.
- Warden #8 - Hunting the Hunter: As Warden patrols the
early morning rooftops of Manhattan, the heroes supposedly captured by the
CSV fight the mystic Weregild as well as Caryatid, one of the three
co-leaders of the CSV.
- ASH #13 - A Bomb In Nation: With some help from STRAFE
and the LNH 2023, ASH splits into teams and rushes around the world in an
attempt to disarm the seven bombs the CSV has planted near the world's
gambling capitals, places rife with Anchors.
- PHASE THREE - IMPACT
With most of the world's heroes and villains otherwise occupied, it's left to
an alliance of EUROPA and the remains of STRAFE to fight the CSV in and
around the ruins of Haven, a late 20th-Century den of supervillains. The
battle is brutal, leaving both sides with casualties.
- STRAFE #5 - Falling Stars: Both factions home in on
Haven, the battle claiming one dead in its first moments and reaching a
climax with the detonation of a neutron bomb inside one of the STRAFE agents!
- CSV #5 - Fallout!: The battle comes to its bloody
conclusion, with victories and losses on both sides.
- PHASE FOUR - EPILOGUE
While the battle is over, there's still some wrapping up to do. Not all of
these tales are tied closely to the crossover, but all help close off bits of
