Speedball is a real Bubblehead: Part 2

So what happened to Speedball? This hard-headed-cause of all the disaster-hero is still as stubborn as a fungus residing in your toenails. Why can't he just apologize to the public about the Stamford disaster? Can't he just admit that he was responsible? If not for him, none of the Stamford tragedy would have happened. Almost 600 people died and he still sticks to his erratic principle. I mean, he tried to take down heroes above form his level of powers. That's stupidity and dumbness.

So what happened in the prison? Mr. Bubblehead, yeah Speedball, went on a boxing match with the best fighter in Jail. I was amazed when I saw that he still has the skill for a boxing match. But the prisoners won't let him win so some inmate cut his leg with a knife. Just right for him. Right for a man with no conscience. Bubblehead's mom even visited him in prison to persuade him to apologize to the poor family and the people of America. Robert Baldwin, a.k.a. Speedball is the most hated man in America at present.

All of this events happening in the Marvel universe only.

Its not speedballs fault. Speedball didnt go into stamford with a bomb a blow it up killing everyone, Nitro did. Maybe Speedball only went after them for ratings and such, but its no different than when spiderman goes after a villian. Everyone in the books are blaming Speedball calling him a child killer and what not, while not even giving so much as a thought about Nitro who actually chose to do what he did. So I can understand Speedball saying its not his fault...cause its not.

It may not be directly SpeedBall's fault but if you'll study it closer, before Speedball and the New Warriors went on for those bad guys, they should've taken into consideration the bad guys capability and powers. But like I said before, the New Warriors knew Nitro's capability of self detonation yet they went on for it. It was the fault of Speedball because he was the leader and he insisted on attacking the bad guys taking for granted the fact that they knew Nitro.
If there's something that Speedball should do, he should apologize to the poeple and the family of those victims.

I disagree, does a police officer have to apologize when the criminal he is chasing does something. Does the firefighter have to apologize for the actions of fire. No, so why does a hero have to apologize for the actions of a supervillian.

Not only that, but superheroes are defined to take care of supervillians. The New Warriors were a sanctioned team, they were doing there job taking down escaped supervillians. Now if speedball had lost control of his power and caused the explosion, that would be a different matter.

I think Speedball can be forgiven for thinking the Warriors had a chance, given that in their very first battles they successfully faced a herald of Galactus and the Juggernaut. Nitro doesn't seem much more dangerous, and he's never managed to cause so much collateral damage when taken down by other heroes, including a solo Daredevil!

If you read Civil war carefully, you'll notice that Nitro is technacally not able to do that much damage, I mean he can explode himself, cool, but not explode a full school... his explosion was more powerfull than it should (see wolverines part why...) ... Personally i think he's not guilty, it's like if a cop try to stop a bomb, fails but survive the explosion : are you gonna condemn him?
