Speedball Trivia Question

Post by BobMM » Sat Feb 07, 2009 10:59 am

I've been tracing major events in Robbie Baldwin's career for updates to my Thunderbolts History page, and I have run into an unusual problem.

From issue #1, Robbie's original book was called SPEEDBALL: THE MASKED MARVEL. Within the stories, however, the character is called "The Masked Marvel", not Speedball.

Can anyone identify when Robbie was first actually called "Speedball" as a proper code name?

I'm not sure if it was the first time but he was called Speedball in Captain America 352.

The narrative in M/AGE@ 4/2 refers to the 'speedball effect'.

Robbie calls himself 'Speedball' in ASM@ 22

I read through the Spidey Annual twice and missed it. I see it now, though. Thanks.
