Speedball dead by Front Line #10?

UPDATED: At WizardWorld: Chicago, Marvel held their “Mondo Marvel” panel on Friday, August 4. Civil War: Front Line writer Paul Jenkins vowed that Speedball would be dead by issue #10. Read more about the panel at the click.

The sincerity in which Jenkins’ comment was made, however, is in doubt. Keep in mind that panels at comic book conventions tend to be high on levity to stay entertaining.

Another report states that Jenkins exclaimed “You ain’t seen nothing yet!” in regard to Speedball. And yet another quotes Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada as responding with “Speedball’s still alive, and that’s about it,” when asked by a convention goer if there was any good news for New Warriors fans.

Commenting on the Nova-starring Annihilation mini-series, writer Keith Giffen stated that it would “pull together a lot of the events” of the previous four solo mini-series. The premise will be, “If you leave Earth, you’d better have some allies.”

In addition, Marvel also hyped the Spider-Man/Power Pack mini-series debuting in November.

In contrast, Newsarama’s summary makes no mention of Paul Jenkins’ comment, instead mentioning a question asked about any good news for New Warriors fans, which is answered by Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada with “Speedball’s still alive, and that’s about it.”
