For me? Too much.

This is a cheap exploitive way for Joey Q and friends to turn around the teasing talk he's engaged in for the better part of a year about Speedball.

Heck, I'm not even sure its internally consistent, since Speedball was repeatedly shown not really having a sense of feeling responsible for the Stamford thing. So almost dying changed that? I'm not sure I get that. Or the lesson this character is supposed to teach us.

Makes you wonder what Joey has planned for his other big target--Mary-Jane?

Penance... Hurts so good! Only not!

Too much? It's ridiculously over the line. I never bought into the old, "The New Warriors killed those kids!" point-of-view. They made a stupid mistake and a villain slaughtered them, as well as a whole neighborhood. But I wouldn't even wish this on Nitro. This is horrible beyond words.

And so Speedball joins the ranks of Psylocke and the Scarlet Witch as the most ruined characters. Just one more reason for me to avoid the new Thunderbolts (like I needed another reason). I'd rather see him dead than tortured for our enjoyment.
