*Ragnarok is a member of both the Common Defense Treaty and The SuperFriends.

The Illuminati War was a coordinated attack by several alliances belonging to the Common Defense Treaty and the SuperFriends against Illuminati (TNWO) that began on Leap Day, February 29, 2008. The casus belli largely revolved around a leaked discussion thread in the TNWO government forum in which Terry Howard stated his intent to join the Continuum-GPA War primarily against Sparta as it was believed in TNWO that they were on the Sparta's "hit list" (although the idea was rejected by the government). The information was leaked by a former member who was never de-masked from their forums.
