History: (Animal Man #28)-Front Page is a resident of Earth-27, a hypertimeline almost identical to our own. His history and origin are unknown, but as some point he decided to earn a living as a superhero, teamed up with fellow third-stringers Notional Man and Nowhere Man. They achieved a small degree of success, but their adventures didn't pay the bills, so they began side careers in the pornography industry. Front Page and Notional Man eventually became lovers, but Nowhere Man ended his buisness relationship with the others, running away with the teams' money. Front Page and Notional Man swore revenge, and began tracking him down. They found Nowhere Man in the company of Animal Man, a hero displaced from his own timeline. In the ensuing battle Animal Man accidentally killed Front Page, and the last headline Front Page would have plastered across his body was "Animal Man Slays Front Page!" In an effort to conceal their actions Nowhere Man and Animal Man tabooed over the headlines on Front Page's corpse and dumped his body at a hospital.
