Headbanger is the code name used by Kevin M. Kaye. He is one of six Screaming Eagles under the command of Sgt. Savage.
Not much is known of Kaye's life before Sgt. Savage took command of him and five other highly-trained, undisciplined soldiers. Kaye and the other Screaming Eagles have since helped stop NASA from unwittingly deploying a cyber doomsday device, protect a nuclear facility, and served in maneuvers in the arctic before moving to reserve status.
A Real American Hero continuity
Hasbro Comics continuity
Although only identifiable in one panel, Kaye, along with the other Screaming Eagles, appear in the Sgt. Savage vs. Gen. Blitz mini-comics packed with select toys. In the comic, the Eagles defend a nuclear facility from the I.R.O.N. Army, drawing the enemy into a trap by hiding under the dirt of their bunker before attacking and driving back General Blitz's forces.
Devil's Due Comics continuity
During the conflict now known as World War III, Kaye was stationed in Algeria, North Africa.
Kaye's only known appearance in cartoon form is the single Sgt. Savage and his Screaming Eagles episode, Old Soldiers Never Die. Along with the other Eagles, Kaye helps stop NASA from unwittingly deploying a cyber doomsday device.
There were no toys of Headbanger released as part of the Sgt. Savage and his Screaming Eagles toyline.
- Kaye's assignment to North Africa during WWIII could be a reference to Operation Torch, due to the Sgt. Savage toyline's roots in WWII.
