The title of the series is: "The Slutwraith Crisis," and it features a crossover storyline decades in the making. Every publisher that has collaborated on the project - including Marvel, DC, and even smaller publishers like Bongo Comics - has agreed to wove the plotline into every single series currently running. Fans will finally discover the reason why nearly every female comic book character wears what amounts to underwear as her uniform, often into combat, while her male counterparts are fully clothed and armored at all times.

The plot revolves around a new villain, Areoyla, the titular Slutwraith of The Slutwraith Crisis. Areoyla is described as "a narcissistic nymphomaniac who detests prudishness and clothing on the female body." She has a sinister plan to travel back to the beginning of time to set in place a magical energy field that will impose upon every female in the universe - good, evil, human, or human-cat hybrid - an overwhelming desire to both reveal themselves and to contort their body in the most alluring way possible at all times.

Word on the street is comic book fans can't wait to check out the series. One eager fan said: "Sure, it's unnecessary ret-conning, but I hear the fights are awesome. Apparently Power Girl and Areoyla get into this twenty page cat-fight on Druckmar, the mud planet. And in case you think Areoyla was this one dimensional villain, they devote a lot of time to her origin story as a stripper sex slave on Apokolips."

"Sure, it's pretty dark," Xeller said, "but the heroes don't always win in real life, you know? I think that's the real lesson they're trying to show here."
