History


Little is known about Robbie's life before the Stamford incident. It can be assumed to be similar to his mainstream counterpart.

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2

As Speedball, Robert Baldwin was a member of the New Warriors. Along with his teammates Speedball tracked down Coldheart & Nitro to the Connecticut town, Stamford. They engaged the supervillain on live TV, and were about to defeat them when Nitro activated his powers, destroying the town and killing most the New Warriors. A week later the FBI and S.H.I.E.L.D. found the injured Baldwin 500 miles from the point of the blast and took him into custody, publicly releasing his secret identity. Jennifer Walters, AKA the She-Hulk, helped Baldwin get a pardon in court.

While imprisoned on Ryker's Island, Baldwin designed a new costume designed to leave him in a constant state of pain. He sent the designs to a costume creator who was appaled at the idea but created the costume anyway. After receiving his new suit Baldwin claimed Speedball to be dead, and took the name Penance. Baldwin willingly registered with the government and was stationed at the Ryker's Island/Negative Zone prison as a guard. When the Nanites started taking control of themselves, Nick Fury sent the Ultimate Alliance to the prison, where they encountered and battled Penance, eventually defeating him. After beating him Penance joined the ranks of the Ultimate Alliance and aided in stopping the Nanite Fold from taking over the world.

Penance was part of a raid an an abandoned A.I.M. base repurposed by the Skrulls. Other superhumans who participated were Captain America, the Taskmaster, Spider-Man, the Rhino, Sandman, Cable, Kraven the Hunter, and Vulture.
