The Employee-Empowered, Paradigm-Shifted, Individual-Ownership, Downsized, Streamlined, Reinvigorated Crimes of the Brotherhood of Net.Villains, or just Crimes of the Brotherhood, was a crossover that ran from April to September 1995, devised by Jeff McCoskey. It concerned Mister Homage's effort to revitalize the Brotherhood of Net.Villains with innovative business strategies and disrupt the net.villain industry! ("Disruption" wasn't a term people used as much back then, but the principle was the same.) The net.villains were set to draw up their own plots and make a profit, clashing with various net.heroes along the way.

Legacy

The Crimes of the Brotherhood crossover as a whole was not well-received at the time because of delays and an anticlimactic ending, but was important in fleshing out a lot of the Looniverse's underappreciated net.villains. Manga Man's role in the Unlikely Aliens issues was a major influence on Drew Nilium's characterization of him in Just Imagine Saxon Brenton's RACCies! and its sequels.

According to Frost and Teenfactor #4, Polybag Person met Jennifer Frost shortly before his clash with Trux and Spite Grrrl and recruited her to the Brotherhood. (Amabel Holland Elsewhirled the original Teenfactor series, so it's not clear if this is still canon.)
