Marvel Super Heroes #6 (Speedball)
Issue(s): Marvel Super Heroes #6 (Speedball story only)
Sadly, that guy's face is just a mask. I have to tell you that i am really disappointed about that.
Equally disappointing is that the "Bouncer" turns out to really just be a petty thief. After that first scan, i was seriously hoping that he was some kind of fashion critic gone insane, running around in his checkered purple pants trying to force the world to conform to his fashion ideas. But sadly, he's just a thief that makes quips about fashion.
Speedball punishes the guy for being so disappointing, and to be fair this does make up for a lot.
For what it's worth, at this point Speedball seems to have given up on catching Niels.
Here is your Speedball clip 'n' save panel of the day:

I like to think that one of the few things keeping Robbie from completely succumbing to his Penance persona is that on his darkest days he can still remember this: http://www.supermegamonkey.net/chronocomic/entries/scans21/MSH6_Speedball6.jpg

No matter how batshit or how stupid these Ditko stories got, not a single one was dumber than the storyline and concept around Penance.

Though actually I think Ellis in Thunderbolts managed to get some good mileage out of the Penance concept.
