 When the smoke cleared, almost thirty of the Grand Haven'​s capes were dead or unrecognizable. Pre-Behemoth factions like the Belladonnas were left with only a single member and disbanded, whilst the newly revitalised Respite found themselves leaderless. A power vaccum, certainly.

 +===== Attack of the Blockverse =====
 +
 +Grand Haven was a powder-keg following the casualties inflicted on it by the Herokiller. Just as dozens of capes died, even more flocked to the city, desperate to carve out their own place. The influx of new and competing parahumans stifled the city, turning the whole town into a large stand-off. The old factions faltered, failing to capitalize on each other'​s weaknesses, instead folding to deal with internal matters. Kami slowly bled capes, leaving Oni Girl alone as the lynch-pin that kept them together. Terra fell to its own internal war, with capes splintering off to fight each other. Respite held their claims, but still lacked leadership that could expand it. With any status quo, there comes those who are willing to break it. Grey Market, The House, Torchbearers,​ and dozens of independents ripped at the old factions. Kami lost over half its territory, Terra even more. Respite actually gained by having lucrative deals with Grey Market selling land to them. The mercenaries were all too willing to sell the land for top dollar. ​
 +
 +During this, one of Grey Markets members, a young tinker named Blockbuster,​ gained lots of attention as being a “Villian”. Choosing to spend his time making hammy movies and committing villainous crimes, he wasn’t seen as a large threat. At least, until they claimed to have ripped open the veil between worlds and brought in a bunch of other Blockbusters to take over the city. Reports conflict on whether the capes were actually from other worlds or just hired mercenaries,​ but the Blockbusters quickly seized control of nearly a third of the city. For two weeks they pushed at the other factions, until their final actions came to pass.
 +
 +Blockbuster announced that he was going to “Destroy the Smithy” unless he was paid a collective 1 million dollars by the factions of Grand Haven. Most brushed this off, until a seemingly giant meteor appeared over the Michigan Skyline. A resistance was mounted by Respite and local heroes, and independent hero Dreamline was able to speedily evacuate the citizenry, but it wasn’t enough. The Smithy and most of the surrounding district was destroyed by the massive impact. No casualties thanks to the actions of the heroes, but millions in property damage and the complete destruction of the Smithy. Blockbuster has seemingly disappeared alongside his compatriots. What will happen now that the one outlet for the seemingly endless clashes of parahumans in the city has been reduced to rubble?  ​
