No, not yet. Robbie was replaced during the Time & Time Again storyline, which would start in the next isue of New Warriors.
: .....The Speedball that appeared in the
: CHILD'S PLAY arc that featured the New
: Warriors and X-Force WASN'T the real Robbie
: Baldwin! That was the Darion Grobe
: duplicate, with his "beefed up"
: control of the kinetic field.
: --Previous Message--
: True, but Speedball was later subjected to
: neo-neutralizer thingie in New Warriors #75.
: After that issue, all of the Warriors' power
: levels seemed to be downgraded closer to the
: beginning of the series. The theory is that
: the device effected their power levels.
: Not only that, but Robbie's level of control
: over his powers tends to fluctuate a bit--he
: simply does not have complete control over
: the capabilities of his kinetic field.
: So just because he was able to expand his
: kinetic field to block an explosion in one
: instance does not automatically mean he can
: do it for every explosion he ever
: encounters. In the Sienna Blaze incident,
: he was only facing one opponent, so he had
: more warning in order to be ready to create
: the shield.
: In this incident, there were multiple
: opponents, so Robbie may not have had enough
: time to generate the shield before it was
: too late. And even if he DID generate the
: shield, go back and look at that old issue
: again--everyone inside the field was still
: injured, and the surrounding area was still
: devestated. So even if Speedball had been
: able to generate the shield, the Samford
: Massacre would still have happened...and if
: Speedball had succeeded in saving the
: Warriors, but the rest of the civilians were
: still killed, that would have looked even
: worse for the Warriors.
