Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: New Warriors
Base Breaker: Robbie Baldwin, full stop. There are some fans who love his light-hearted Speedball persona while the other portion prefer his Penance persona for his more powerful Penance powers and dismissing Speedball as 'lame'.
Night Thrasher: Robbie, the purpose of this session is to find ways of effectively using your Speedball powers in combat.
Speedball: Well, Dwayne... how 'bout attaching humongous spikes to my spandex? That way I could totally impale all the bad guys!
Night Thrasher: Spikes, huh? [Walks away, looking contemplative]
Speedball: Uh, that's a joke, Thrash...
My Real Daddy: Speedball was at first created by Steve Ditko and Tom De Falco where in his own series, he originally started out as a gimmicky character and a poor man's version of Peter Parker. When Fabian Nicieza wrote him on New Warriors, Speedball had turned into an interesting character with a jokester personality.
Never Live It Down: An in-universe example, thanks to their reckless and accidental actions that sparked Civil War, the New Warriors and Speedball are known by public for blowing up Stamford.
The Scrappy: Hindsight Lad, who started off as an obnoxious fanboy, but later dropped the "Lad" and actually became a fairly competent supporting cast-member, before outing the identities of the surviving members of the group following the destruction of Stamford at the start of Civil War.
The New Warriors in the fourth series as a whole, following Civil War, as it had nothing to do with the original New Warriors by having former mutants wearing Powered Armor and were led by Dwayne Taylor's brother posing as Night Thrasher. Time has healed wounds, though, and many said they were looking forward to the Marvel NOW team.
