So on Niva Voss' Twitter, she reportely "got laid." But, by who!? It could have been everyone! Eyewitnesses have seen this hussie hanging with ALL the boys of The Headliners! First it was Lagoon, who she probably got it doggy-style from. Then it was Pyreblast, who surely got lots of oral from her fat mouth. Then Chicane, who we ALL know is a missionary kind of man. And now she's been seen with more than just our famous Headliners! She's been seen with lowly paper-pusher and botched opera singer David Libret! What the hell is up with this slut! She is just plowing everyone with her vag, isn't she!?
Seriously?... Where do you get this information? - HeadLinersRool87
I'll tell you who got lots of oral from her fat mouth... THIS GUY!!!!!! As in me btw. - Ladykiller23
You're probably like some dweeb with a huge mullet dude. - badguy1
YOU STFU! - Ladykiller23
I am shocked! Check out this exclusive statement released by Johnny Turbo! He sounds really pissed off! Hooray, erm, I mean, that sucks, because now he's going to jump through hoops to get revenge. Anyway here it is word for word:
"My fellow Paragonians, I know you feel like The Headliners haven't been doing much lately. The city is in peril and we are more concerned with ourselves...BUT THAT COULDN'T BE WRONG...er. One little explosion at Snow Enterprises and suddenly the criminals forget their place! Well it is time to teach them where they belong! It is time to send a message to them all, from purse snatchers to world destroyers! The Headliners ain't goin' to take that kind of stuff. The Phalanx might, but not us. And what better way to start this than by hunting down the notorious Cataclysm who I myself had a run-in with. I was blind-sighted, totally unfair fight. We will catch that cat-themed criminal and bring her to justice! That hissing feline will be turned into a PURRING KITTEN! That's all."
See what I mean?

SUPERVILLAIN HEADHUNTER SETS SIGHTS ON DAMIAN SNOW
HEROESRLAME.com - January 3rd
He's at it again! That villainous Award has announced his latest target. Damian Snow, we know him, THEY love him, but we HATE HIM! Coldcrash! Quite an ambitious choice don't you think! Well, either way... Coldcrash and Award = ULTIMATE FACE-OFF 2010! We all know when Award set his sights on The Z-Hunter. What about Falcon and Eagle?! Hunted. Gone. Adios. Well, can't wait to see how this plays out!
Just read Award's Twitter...he won. - badguy1
Seriously? Coldcrash is dead? - ilovedamiansnow
Well that was anticlimatic... - ihatedamiansnow
FOUL PLAY! THERE'S NO BODY! - HeadLinersRool87
Stfu kid, you're really annoying you know that? Sabes que, Ima slap you. - ihatedamiansnow
Why would Award kill Coldcrash...it just doesn't make sense. Damian Snow...he's not worth hunting. Maybe...HE WAS PAID! - detectiveboyz
So who is going to be leader? - goodolecurious99
Well, I hear that 'CEO Garrett Snow named Pyreblast acting leader until they find someone more suitable. - machinehead420
AWESOME! - Pyreblastroolziamhisfan
THIS IS BULL! - JohnnyTurboFTW
You guys here about Lagoon's baby? - srsbuziness09
...gtfo this isn't about that - HeadLinersRool87
Well, I gotta be straight up honest you guys. Things were looking pretty bleak for the 'Liners. I mean, their leader was hunted down by the nefarious Award and killed for what seemed like no reason at all! I mean, Damian Snow was a big deal and taking him down would make you feel MANLY. But seriously, no loling here, straight up, that probably put everyone in an awkward position. But thats when Pyreblast took charge and CHANGED THE WHOLE THING! He turned it all around! It was all him! When heroes like Johnny Turbo or Accelerate sat by and did nothing, Pyreblast whipped em into shape! I mean did you guys see Talos Tidbits the other day? Newcomer Draconic, Chopkicks (Whom apparently she is "involved" with LOL), and Masked chased that Award all through a popular ski resort!
He was trying to escape! He even went down the slopes, but they followed and bam caught him. And did you hear THIS? Apparently he was tied to TYRANT! So Praetorian Earth thinks they can just muscle in on Primal Earth? NOT ON HEADLINERS' WATCH! Apparently, Pyreblast got Johnny Turbo, Lagoon, and Masked to attack Tyrant's cell in Paragon. Well, it is over now. The fighting has ceased. The Headliners are the winners. And although Coldcrash may not come back! It looks like everything is at peace with Paragon City again! Hooray! Rejoice! Rejoice! Tyrant went back to Praetoria with his tail between his legs. I doubt they'll take too kindly to Emperor Cole's failure LOL! Well, g'bye!
I know what everyone is wondering! Duckman! Where's he been! What has he been up to?! We haven't been able to update the site for a few weeks now! Well everyone's questions are answered in this thrilling segment of ULTRADUCKMAN.COM INTERVIEWS! We caught up with Johnny Turbo and Footwork, the newcomer Headliner hired to replace Accelerate, for exclusive interviews involving their triumphant rescue of Duckman!
"Interviewer: Mr. Turbo! Mr. Turbo! We understand that with Accelerate and Duckman gone you needed a new whipping boy! So you started hanging out with Elastic, is this true?
Johnny Turbo: Yeah.
Interviewer: And he got a call from Duckman saying he was in Las Vegas!?! So you took Footwork here with you and found him?! Why was he in Las Vegas?
Johnny Turbo: Who the hell is Footwork? This is New Accelerate.
Footwork: Duckman was in Las Vegas, yeah.
Interviewer: How did he wind up there?"
It was then that Elastic AKA Davey Manuel burst into the studio without invitation! The eccentric superhero seemed to know more than these other two!
"Elastic: I can tell you why Duckman was lost! He needed to FIND HIMSELF! Suffering from the terrible effects of the HYDROQUACK, a fancy name for a broken heart in duck-talk... Duckman's one true love, Chopkicks, was found with Draconic...kissing. STRICKEN WITH HEARTBREAK, he fled Paragon in tears! Only to turn up in Las Vegas weeks later! He is excited to return to work with his fellow Headliners.
Interviewer: Right so, what did D-
Elastic: NO FURTHER QUESTIONS!"
And that was all I shook out of them. It seems you trade one hero for another as Accelerate, tired of being unappreciated and disrespected, retired from his life as a Headliner, Duckman returned to his! If you want to know more about the beak, please visit us at ducks.org.
Ronald McDavish reporting here for PCN, Paragon News Network! I've seen a lot of stuff in my life, but never something quite like this! The people of Praetoria are REBELLING against Emperor Cole! And for an odd reason! Because of his recent failure against superteam The Headliners, the people have stopped seeing him fit as a leader. Nothing seems to be stopping these people either! Emperor Cole has already taken several protestors into custody to be tortured! They seem to have found themselves a new leader.
He goes by the name of Tyranno, and he has declared himself more fit to rule over the dimension than Cole himself! Citizens everywhere are flocking to the newfound political figure in a place that has been complete and utterly devoid of democracy or reform for years. The question is, will Tyranno, the mysterious new challenger, be able to defeat Cole and seize his throne without being KILLED. It is an enigma really.
Tyranno has been rumored to be the man that took over as leader of the Praetorian Peace-Keeping Squadron, Bushido. If so, the man has a lot of allies, but he has also been known to make many mistakes. In the words of Headliner Rave Spider, "The man is like an idiot savant. He has spurts of genius and can actually be dangerous." I guess only time will tell what happens in this other dimension, but if things turn south, we all know who to blame...THE HEADLINERS!

CALVIN CALLAHAN - SINGLE?
Callafans.com - January 12th
Hey readers! Surely you've heard the buzz by now. Supposedly, the twenty-six year old super-hunk Lagoon and his (now ex-)girlfriend Naomi Briggs have broken up after a few months of dating according to an insider. The split was said to be amicable and the two "plan to stay friends." We all know our favorite superhero and well-known ladies man is no stranger to the single-scene either. Cal is infamous for his past horn-dog antics. It's rumored he's slept with half the San Diego Chargers' cheerleading squad and numerous former superhero teammates.
He's staying tight-lipped on the cause of the split. Apparently he's not the kiss-and-tell type anymore. Maybe Naomi changed him for the better? Either way girls... he's ours for the taking!

...and the man admitted to being a serial rapist. IN SUPERHERO NEWS, the escalating conflict between celebrity superhero team The Headliners and the nefarious Bushido Praetorian organization seems to has finally reached its breaking point. Over the past few weeks, notable Praetorian "usurper," Tyranno has been taking his group, Bushido, and moving for revolt in Praetoria, replacing Emperor Cole with him. For unknown reasons, The Headliners became involved with this conflict. Their battles have been nothing short of...legendary.
Tyranno mobilized his 4 best agents to capture Rave Spider, because after Damian Snow's disappearance, he was the only one that suspected the Bushido syndicate's involvement, instead of Tyrant, whom Lagoon swore was behind it. Rave Spider, Heatpulse, and Asunder were the three Headliners held captive, but Rave Spider managed to find a way out, saving Heatpulse and himself. Asunder, who was still in captivity, was saved later by Rave Spider, Lagoon, Chopkicks, Johnny Turbo, Masked, and Draconic. This sparked the turf war between the two superteams, as Tyranno was quoted as saying, "The Headliners are bad people, and they don't belong in the utopia I am trying to create."
Several days later, CEO Garrett Snow informed the Headliners that their funding was to be cut. Without his son leading the group, he saw no reason to continue sending Headliners money. Pyreblast worked on a solution to the problem, exploring other sponsors, but to no avail. Bushido saw this moment of weakness, some speculation says they even caused it, and set several new plans into action. Heroes Duckman and Accelerate announced they were quitting the Headliners, fed up with the abuse and mistreatment they recieved from their colleagues, Johnny Turbo in particular.
Niva Voss' confirmed boyfriend David Libret, was one of the first to be abducted by Bushido. Tyranno and his bodyguard, Renascent, cornered him in Striga somewhere. Surprisngly close to where Coldcrash vanished. Pyreblast, Mass Conniption, Rave Spider and an unknown colleague, managed to rescue the poor citizen caught in the crossfire, and were said to have seen strange altars and cult-like devices where Tyranno was holding him. Of course, Miss Voss put it more colorfully than that, but...you know her.
Elsewhere, Johnny Turbo thought it would be a good idea to take newcomer Footwork with him on a recon mission. Unapproved by Pyreblast of course. The two wound up being ambushed by notable Bushido agents Sly Spyder and Ninjette and a freelancer named Suspense. Footwork ran, leaving Johnny Turbo to be captured by them. Just when he thought his time was up, Duckman and Accelerate returned, executing a classic manuever to save him. The six engaged in a fight, that ultimately ended with the Headliners escaping. Johnny Turbo apologized to Duckman and Accelerate, and the two agreed to come back.
The straw that broke the camel's back in this saga, was when Bushido's second in command, Mountain Ogre kidnapped Rave Spider's parents. Rave Spider and Asunder tracked Ogre back to an oil refinery, where Tyranno, Ninjette, and Sly Spyder were waiting. Rave vowed to end this conflict forever. Tyranno insisted it was too late, as he was about to launch an assault on Emperor Cole's palace and seize the throne. He then abandoaned those that served him well claiming all they did was fail him, ultimately betraying the rest of Bushido. Rave and Asunder rescued his parents, but Tyranno was still at large.
In the end, it was the most unlikely people to play hero. Tyranno had taken over Cole's palace and was ready to seize control of all of Praetoria. Mountain Ogre led Sly Spyder and Ninjette on a suicide mission through the palace, attempting to take down their former leader. Finally cornering him on the roof, Mountain Ogre extracted the nanites that gave Tyranno his power and injected himself with them. They turned him over to Tyrant who arrested the traitor. Bushido is now run by Mountain Ogre, with very different goals....perhaps they would even leave the Headliners alone.

So he's back. And it wasn't even a Nemesis plot! But moreseo, one of the diabolical Countess! For years this site's been dedicated to the downfall of one Crey Industries! Recent reports have something very disturbing in store! The Headliners uncovered superhero headhunter Award has had his illegal sick game of "sport" funded by Crey. Why you ask? Because after defeating his prey, Award takes his targets back to Crey where they are used for the infamous Revenant Hero Project. Damian Snow was just another on their list!
Pyreblast, Chopkicks, Accelerate, Chicane, Duckman, and more infiltrated the lab. They were shocked to find Crey using the genetic make-up of Coldcrash to create PARAGON PROTECTORS! They rescued him, but the trauma he endured within the labs drove him to step down as leader of The Headliners passing the position on to Rave Spider and Pyreblast permanantly. As usual, Crey has committed hideous crimes against humanity! But the government just won't take notice!
I knew it! Those Headliners would do anything for money! THEY'RE RATS! CHEATERS! Apparently, Johnny Turbo has struck a deal with Volker Tech for more funding! Snow Enterprises won't pay them enough for their precious...uhm...CAVIAR! So JT brutally arrested Airbound a small-time superpowered burglar that had been stealing from this Volker Labs place. The guy didn't stand a chance! So now Airbound probably needs therapy or something to get over the tremendously unecessary ass-kicking that the Turbo gave him. Seriously, a little abuse of power there? MAYBE. MAYBE NOT LITTLE EITHER. D-bag.
So the arrests have really been piling up, local street thugs, Circle of Thorns mages, drug dealers, but I don't know if The Headliners are doing this for the city or if they really are just in it for the money and the fame like all those conspiracy sites have said. Along with Volker Labs, GM, Nike, and El Super Mexicano have all begun sending money towards the group. I think Elastic even did a spot for Viagra. So here it is, the commerical, corporate sellouts hidden behind those tight costumes and fancypants names have revealed themselves! So I tell you! Get out of Paragon City! GET OUT! It is the STRAIGHT UP APOCALYPSE! The heroes we've respected and loved for so long are just in it for the money! I hereby resign from blogging! Cause if I keep this up! They'll find me! AND THEY'LL DO ME IN LIKE THEY DID TO TruthRevealed69! And I know that was a Nemesis plot, but, but...alright, I'm overreacting. I have that problem. Just...don't trust the Headliners...

Well everybody, its time to move on... It all started a few days ago, Masked told The Headliners that he needed to go somewhere where things weren't so perfect. Everything was fine in the land of "Paragon" what with Bushido's crippling defeat. He needed to venture into more dangerous, crime-ridden territory. He found himself unable to even leave the country however as he was shot dead when he tried to. So that is it. Chopkicks identified the body and Masked was no more. Others have been down to say their goodbyes like Rave Spider and Johnny Turbo. A funeral has not been planned, I don't think Masked would have wanted one. With that, this website will be disbanded. There is no reason to talk about a dead hero, now is there... Unless, he's not dead?

ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST
HEROESRLAME.com - January 31st
With the recent death of Masked, the goodie-goodie superteam The Headliners have certainly withstood their fair share of BRUTALITY and MENTAL ANGUISH. Many have been in a dark place. For years it has been a struggle against good and evil, but now...oh now... These heroic "juggernauts" The Headliners, they've been exposed. They have all the funding in the world, all the popularity. But when an overconfident idiot like Award is bailed out of prison by Crey Industries and with the help of Airbound he immediately regains entry to Paragon City. What is there to be afraid of?!
Offroad, the BMX douchebag, met his demise at the hands of Award. Did he need a power-nullification ray? Did he need an army? NO. The Headliners are nothing to fear. They've put crime down to an all-time low, but now, its about to spark up again! Rave Spider sits upon his throne, casting down anyone who opposses "law" and "order," but no longer. It is time for this city to get a wake-up call. Skulls, Hellions, Lost, Vahizlok, all of you! It is time to rise up. If Award and Airbound can kill a Headliner, why the hell can't any of you?
Crime is about to strike back! HARDER THAN EVER! - CrimeRules
I miss the days when we could just do drugs in public! - yeahIlikecracksueme
The infamous Johnny Turbo has announced that the Headliners have gone international. The mental stress that the death of Offroad and Masked has put Rave Spider through caused him to surrender his leadership position to the egotistical speedster. JT announced his first action as leader would be getting the group more funding. Now, companies from all over the globe, from places like China, Canada, or right here in Japan, are buying a piece of the name. They're slapping "Headliners-Approved" stickers on their products and, guess what, THEY'RE SELLING LIKE WILDFIRE!
The truth of the matter is that these guys are not heroes anymore. Even they see that. Two of their members were killed, criminals are going mad everywhere, and these icons are just making money! I'm not sure what the world needs to stop crime, but after this little Headliners experience, I can honestly say, it is not big heroic juggernauts that care more about themselves than the people. They may have been intimidating, but that doesn't change the fact that they're heartless, soulless sellouts. They've seen that too, and that's why all the members are hanging up their ties with the group, and pursuing greener pastures.
It is only fit that they split under the leadership of the idiot who portrayed them best, Johnny Turbo. Deep down, all those corporate sellouts were what Johnny Turbo paraded around as. They were jerks, ego-driven, self-fufilling, greedy dirtbags. That is all they were. Lagoon is headed back to the West Coast, Duckman is dating some bimbo, so I guess they've all gotten happy endings, other than the ones who died. With no team to lead, I can only hope Johnny Turbo retires from heroing altogether. Once again, these guys suck, thank you.
It seems like it's been months since we've posted pictures of the Headliners here at Superrazzi.com since they dropped off the grid. But they've finally come out of hiding it seems! Seen here in Faultline, Paragon City, our sources have spied various members of the Headliners out in full view earlier this afternoon. Those accounted for included Coldcrash, Johnny Turbo, Fusefire, Jam Session, Lagoon, and Pyreblast. Has this infamous, controversial super group risen from the very ashes like the phoenix of legend? Or are they just shooting the s*** here in Faultline in full costume? You decide!
Oh. And they're on a boat.

Another Headliner sighting today as a photographer caught a glimpse of Rave Spider on the move. Rave Spider has recently revealed himself to the masses as Grant Miller after taking a long retreat to Thailand with significant other Asunder. Obviously that trip didn't teach any manners because he got in a scrap with fellow hero Tyrone Hammer. Otherwise known as the Harlem Hammer, Tyrone is a big figure in African American community. From what we've heard, Tyrone did not instigate the fight whatsoever. Could this be a hate crime? Could Rave Spider's trip to Thailand have made him more intolerant of other races? We don't know! Do you?
This is the second big Headliner spotting in the week. Is this team back from the trainwreck that it was driven into? We'll get together with Pyreblast later to confirm if the team will be making a comeback, or if this was just a high school reunion thing. Either way, the group is still lacking a few core members. Duckman and Accelerate have not been seen nor heard in Paragon for a while. In addition to that, there is the death of key Headliner Masked. We'll see how Pyreblast and Rave Spider are planning to bring this group back.

THE CLONE SAGA: PART 1
CLONEFANS.com - May 22nd
THIS JUST IN! Rave Spider, hero or villain?! Earlier today we weren't quite sure the answer to that question! A few days after the accusations of him being a racist, reports came in that the Faultline dam was being ravaged by Freakshow led by none other than Rave Spider himself! Of course, when questioned, Rave Spider denied any knowledge about this, and he set out to find out just what was going on. It seems that this confusing paradox would be the first real news story to bring the Headliners out from hiding! Rave Spider was hot on the trail of whoever was impersonating him, but that didn't stop him from getting a little extra help from his fellow Headliners Lagoon, Fusefire, Pyreblast, Asunder, Chicane, Jam Session, and Johnny Turbo. The nefarious "evil Rave Spider double" was finally cornered within an abandoned lab.
An epic, paradoxical fight took place in the lab, but the Headliners emerged victorious! Upon exiting the lab, Rave Spider told the press that he would find wherever this replica of him came from and put a stop to all this nonsense forever! In a City of Heroes, one can only wonder how clones did not show up earlier. As for the Headliners as a whole, if you're trying to appear selfless and compassionate to win your fans back, it is best not to go after a villain who is only ruining your reputations.

PARAGON'S BIGGEST PARIAHS
WTFNEWS.com - May 30th
...and in Entertainment news, the powerful superhero alliance known as The Palladium Sentry celebrated their two year anniversary by hosting a formal and fancy superhero party! Some of the big names in attendance were Galactoman, Knight Sentinel, Amendment, Pyroflash, and even The Headliners. Days earlier, Asunder announced to the public that the group was in fact making a comeback and that now they were determined to "turn over a new leaf". Their behavior at this party clearly contradicted the previous statement.
Rave Spider and Asunder maintained a sense of respect, and were photographed sharing a slow dance together. However, one reporter did comment that they disappeared in the middle of the party, only to reappear later, out of breath.
Elsewhere, Fusefire got into it with Galacto-Rangers frontman Chogori which resulted in her engulfing herself in flames and revealing her true form! Fusefire is some kind of devil-demon she beast! The Headliners do associate with demons! If Fusefire is truly Pyreblast's sister then that means that Pyreblast is some kind of creature from hell as well! The Headliners are led by a monster from the underworld, unless, our reporters did not get the right story. Further investigation will be required to fully understand the extent of this situation.
Lagoon found himself out of his element as he was rejected by woman after woman at the party. These women, being sophisticated and classy, viewed the West Coast beach bum as a chore. One woman even went so far as to outright insult Calvin and degrade him in front of everyone. Of course, the rest of the group came to his rescue and flung insults right back at Cal's prospective one night stand, especially Fusefire, who apparently put a cigarette out in the woman's clevage!
In probably the strangest turn of events of the night, Coldcrash had a brief moment of insanity as he suddenly turned into a giant snowman creature that wreaked havoc all throughout the party. He was eventually subdued, not until after ruining the party for several people however. Upon questioning, Coldcrash stated that he referred to this as "going yeti" and had little to no control over it.
At the end of the night, Johnny Turbo stole the microphone from The Palladium Sentry leader Knight Sentinel and wowed the crowed with his rendition of "Milkshake" by Kelis. The audience was shocked and assumed he was intoxicated, which his humiliated fellow Headliners said was not true and that this was him sober.
Yet, maybe we dismissed the "new leaf" comment as a lie too early. The night ended on a happy note as Johnny Turbo sang "Friends and Lovers" by Gloria Loring and Carl Anderson with an arm around Knight Sentinel. The rest of his team embraced members from other groups and it has even been said that the Galacto-Rangers and Headliners have formed an alliance. So maybe the Headliners have changed for the better a little after all. They are finally embracing their fellow heroes instead of striving to out-do them. Perhaps Paragon's biggest pariahs could become the city's signature heroes once again.
We've got breaking news. The controversial supergroup The Headliners have dug themselves into quite a large hole. The Spiritwalker AKA Morris Slade, a former industrialist and CEO of Slade Technologies, was in a bind as he recieved death threats from several unknown assassins. About a year ago, Slade had a "spiritual awakening" and realized his company was helping the wrong people. This led him to become a bit of a religious fanatic and dedicate his life to being both a charitable person and a superhero known as The Spiritwalker. Now Slade was returning from a trip to Africa to recieve the Nobel Peace Prize in Paragon City, but these unknown assassins were causing him much stress.
Desperate, he agreed to let The Headliners act as his bodyguards while he was in Paragon. While here, he was ambushed by three superpowered attackers calling themselves The Constrictor, Bionica, and Terrorstone. The Headliners easily defeated them and even discovered they were somewhat affiliated with Crey, who gave them experimental drugs to increase their power. Countess Crey stated that she was unaware the three were using these experimental drugs to become powerful enough to take down The Spiritwalker.
At the ceremony, something ironic happened. Slade's bodyguards turned on him and Lagoon, Pyreblast, Fusefire, Johnny Turbo, Coldcrash, Accelerate and Jam Session began fighting The Spiritwalker and his entourage on LIVE TELEVISION! Slade lacked the power necessary to defeat The Headliners and he was beaten to a pulp by them. Damian Snow tried to explain that Slade was evil and had betrayed his fellow teammates, but we have reason to believe that he cannot be trusted from his various past statements.
Several reporters followed The Headliners back to Founders Falls and overheard part of a conversation between Johnny Turbo and Coldcrash. It seems that Johnny no longer wishes to be aligned with Coldcrash or The Headliners. Some sources also say that Accelerate followed Turbo in his departure from the team.
I am unsure that I can remain such a die hard fan of The Headliners what with all the problems they've been causing. I mean there's plenty of new groups out there who aren't, what's the right word? Obnoxious. The Paragonian Knights, those guys still around? They were pretty cool. I don't know, it just seems like if Johnny Turbo is resigning from the group, they must be doing some seriously effed up stuff. I don't know.
Johnny Turbo was in the news today. He took down some Arachnos big shot named Orbweaver Pogo. I guess he's not done with heroing, he's just done heroing for the wrong team! Maybe underneath his rough exterior, he's a nice guy. That happens right? Like, Hugh Jackman. Underneath his rough exterior is a nice guy, I'm pretty sure. I don't personally know Hugh Jackman. Not that I wouldn't want to.
I'm getting off topic, after JT defeated Pogo, he had an interview on the PCN News Network. They asked him about his departure from the group and he responded with some harsh words...towards someone we thought was his friend. Take a look:
"Damian is a sell out. I didn't like the direction he was taking the group so I had the common sense to leave. I had to convince Aiden to do the same because Damian is so intimidating nobody wants to leave his group. He's got Brent and Grant wrapped around his fingers. If you're looking for the person who's ruining the Headliners and maybe even heroics themselves, look no further than Damian Snow"
Bro that's some HARSH STUFF. That's gonna put some strain on their bromance! - goheroes66!
nemesis plot... - Senile Joe Crackpot
Today, Coldcrash succeeded in saving many children from a burning orphanage in Steel Canyon after an attack by the Hellions, which came as a surprise to both the orphans and the Hellions - and later, the media that wasn't even on the scene, which is unheard of for the Headliners - due to their previously very selective nature regarding their heroic duties.
When asked about the matter, Damian Snow responded:
"I'm sure many of you have heard of the recent turmoil within the Headliners. It seems that one of our previously most enthusiastic members, Johnny Turbo, has decided that he would rather avoid the new direction that our group is heading. So, he has taken it upon himself to seek out other opportunities."
When asked about this 'new direction', he stated:
"We, the Headliners, are trying to clean up our act. We are aware that many people, both people and heroes alike, view us as less than we are capable of simply because we, in the past, have admittedly taken advantage of what our jobs have come to offer us. Our group is, from this point out, working as hard as we can to genuinely provide a better Paragon City for its civilians. The money, the power - those are all secondary. From now on, we Headliners are going to try our best to be the greatest heroes that this city has seen in a long time."
It seems that Damian is very serious about shaping up his act as a hero, along with several other remaining members based off of their current actions throughout the city. I suppose Johnny Turbo just can't handle being a real good guy. Taking him out of the group was a good move for the Headliners' sake.
You really think they can live without JT? - HeadlinersRool87
Aw, shit. - CrimeRules
Today, the Headliners completed a feat so astounding that it was only before tempted by a man that many thought was insane. Not us though, we stuck by this unorthodox hero! THE SUPER WALRUS! SW was the only hero to attempt "the Supercathalon". Five big name villains, all arrested in one day. SW got to his third and as we all know, the mental stress took over him and he committed suicide.
Any who, after that grueling test run, the Headliners thought, "Why not give this "SUPERCATHALON" a try?" I know what you're expecting me to say, but those guys pulled it off! Surprisingly, under the leadership of Jam Session of all people! Coldcrash, Powerlaser, Lagoon, and Jam Session are all Supercathalon finishers! IMPRESSIVE!
First up, The Exploder, a notorious Freakshow bank robber with the ability to make things...explode. Then they took down Ogrehead, some Cimeroran that got a hold of some superadine and became a troll. After him came Twinleaf, an infamous Family enforcer and drug supplier. After that two Council goons were the challengers, Dig It and Stonearms.
After their intial arrests, things seemed to backfire momentarily as the supervillains escaped from police clutches and teamed up for revenge! With a little unexpected help from the FREEDOM PHALANX, the Headliners saved the day. It was your classic comic book story! It seems these Headliners really are fighting for the right side this time...OR ARE THEY?

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!
THIS IS THE WORST NEWS EVAAAAAAR! I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I must regain my composure. The Headliners, America's greatest hero team ever. And I'm not just making up that title! They really are! Whatever! MAYBE I MADE IT UP! The point is, things have turned into an all out CIVIL WAR within that group! It all started with a chance encounter between former Headliner gone solo Johnny Turbo and old Headliner back on the scene Chopkicks/Switchout.
If you've followed the Headliners at all like I have, you'd know that Jules and JT aren't the type to get along! So they started flinging insults at eachother. "You're a whore!", "I put a warrant out for your arrest!", "Mark my words!", etc. Thats when things got really heated! Things broke out into an all out brawl! Johnny Turbo and Accelerate rushed to kung-fu fight with Jules who luckily, had some protection from Lagoon. But, that is when Masked stepped in.
Masked, dedicated to protecting the weak and defenseless, stepped in to protect Jules from the other Headliners. He exclaimed "your days are over mister!" and the battle erupted! Johnny Turbo and Accelerate were quickly knocked out, leaving only Jules and Masked, who for whatever reason, began fighting EACH OTHER!
It was chaos, the greatest heroes ever...all fighting one another! I could not watch! I mean, I watched the news cameras' footage about 300 times, but metaphorically, I couldn't watch! It has escalated to all-out Civil War within the Headliners! Everyone wants the prestigious title of Head Headliner. Whose side are you on!? Team Turbo? Team Chopkicks? Team Coldcrash? Team Pyreblast? Team Jam Session?
WOO! TEAM JAM! - ROCKNROOL221
I suppose it was only a matter of time before these self-centered superheroes began fighting each other to further their own agendas - MrDeepThinker001

This just in! American super celebrities The Headliners and corporate giant Snow Enterprises go at it in an ultimate superpowered showdown here in Tokyo!
Just in case you're unaware of the recent Headliner gossip, Johnny Turbo and Accelerate left the group to pursue greener pastures. That led them to join Snow Enterprises, the company Coldcrash was once the corporate figurehead of. Snow announced to the press that they were creating a new superteam based in Japan as the Headliners had cut all ties to the conglomerate. This team was to be led by the former Headliners JT and Accelerate. Convinced Snow was up to no good, Coldcrash recruited several new members to his cause and brought the group to Japan to expose Snow's true natures.
It was a battle of the superhuman juggernauts. Coldcrash, Powerlaser, Trashtalk, and some freelancers they hired for extra muscle got to the bottom of Snow's plot. They were using brainwashing chemicals to create superheroes that would obey the company's every command. Perhaps after failing to control the Headliners with money, the company realized they had to turn to drastic measures to control their new group.
Meanwhile, Lagoon, Pyreblast, Dragun Fire, and religious zealot Sanctorum were in charge of infiltrating and extracting proof of Snow's corruption from the company's mysterious Japanese headquarters. This fight led them into the streets of Tokyo, doing battle with hired thugs, and even infiltrating a power complex located in the heart of Mt. Fuji. They were lucky though, and managed to escape alive, with the evidence they needed to bust the conglomerate for all of its corporate misdeeds.
Elsewhere, Coldcrash's team confronted his father and CEO of Snow Enterprises at the festival dedicated to the unveiling of Snow's new superteam. Garret Snow panicked and unleashed hell onto the populace in order to escape. The Headliners were forced to go toe to toe with the brainwashed Snow Enterprises heroes as well as a mechanical monstrosity known as the Blizzard Titan. The carnage and damage engulfed the city, but the Headliners were able to deactivate the robot and subdue the heroes. Powerlaser and Dragun Fire teamed up with the Tokyo police to arrest Garret Snow trying to escape at the airport while Coldcrash and the others snapped their fellow heroes out of their brainwashing.
Johnny Turbo and Accelerate admitted they had made a mistake and Coldcrash agreed to let them return to the group. One reporter said that although Coldcrash is happy to have his friends back, he still must deal with the fact that they inevitably betrayed him. They were brainwashed to fight the Headliners, but nobody brainwashed them to leave in the first place. You cannot absolve them for everything they've done. This realization will either make Coldcrash strive to be a better leader, or simply erase all of his cares on the subject.
So the Headliners are back together, the group is an international sensation again, they've got several new recruits, so what is next? Personally, I think it is time for them to relax. The group has taken down one of the world's biggest bad guys and instilled peace and harmony in the US, Japan, and even their own ranks. I guess only time will tell what is in store for the New Headliners, the Good Headliners.
