The Twelve Crimes of Christmas is a themed crime-spree often attempted by villains in the Eightfold universe, first mentioned in Jolt City # 10. The plan is to pull off a crime on twelve consecutive days, with each crime relating to the traditional song Twelve Days of Christmas. To wit:

Day 1: A partridge in a pear tree.

Day 2: Two turtledoves.

Day 3: Three french hens.

Day 4: Four calling birds.

Day 5: Five golden rings.

Day 6: Six geese-a-laying.

Day 7: Seven swans-a-swimming.

Day 8: Eight maids-a-milking.

Day 9: Nine ladies dancing.

Day 10: Ten lords-a-leaping.

Day 11: Eleven pipers piping.

Day 12: Twelve drummers drumming.


The Director's Guild of Anarchy successfully pulled twelve crimes in the Los Angeles area in 1989.

The Australian villain Tall Poppy went above-and-beyond, following the song's cumulative structure to a T and being charged for 364 separate counts.

The Darkhorse rogues (Gallery, Whistler, and Chemist) made an attempt in 2006, but only managed to pull off the first crime.
