Characters Appearing: Speedball
Marvel Comics Presents #56 (Speedball)
Issue(s): Marvel Comics Presents #56 (Speedball story only)
You have to love that Robbie Baldwin sees a guy with a mask on his head depicting the number 2 on a die, sees him running past ranting to himself, and just kind of shrugs his shoulders and says, well, maybe he's up to something no good. Speedball has seen a lot of weird shit, ok? He's not going to jump to conclusions.
But he does follow, and he finds more dice heads, and one of them gets shot.
But they're arguing about embezzling from a pizza place? And they complain that Speedball is wearing a mask? What's going on here?
While they are fighting Speedball, another of the die men tries to get away, but they shoot him. And that leads to more surreal conversation.
Eventually the cops show up.
Wh-wh-what? Consenting adults?
And that's how it ends. And i'm glad. Because surreal madness is a wonderful thing, and i wouldn't want it ruined with some kind of rational explanation.

Terri Cooper should be added as a character appearing since she leaves that message for Robbie.

I don't think i'll count her. It seems to be nighttime already at the start of the story, and the message was left at 5:06 pm. If someone ever writes a Terri Cooper, Secret Agent of SHIELD oneshot, it could take place during this story.
