    Recently i've had an idea for an ultimate version of Speedball.
    He is almost completely different from the original version.
    He's a high school jock and is at first a bully, but he changes.
    He gets his powers from a mystical urn that the museum he is interning at recieves. He goes to the same school as Spider-man in queens. His mother lives in New York, and his father lives in springfield.
    the urn also causes his mutant ability of super-strength to appear(new power) which he would never have gotten if not for the urn. He discovers his powers after he rescues one of the kids he picks on from jumping of the school roof. He later becomes his best friend.

    should i continue with this idea?(i'm gonna no matter what you say)

    Why is he speedball is he doesnt have remotely the same powers, the same way of finding his powers and is in fact a mutant? his character is unrecogniseable as speedball, and superstrength has no relation to the name speedball. Have you even called him Robbie Baldwin?

    dude, it's a new start and yes his name is Robbie Baldwin.
    I didnt want the same origin.
    I threw in the Superstrength because it's also something new that might make the character interesting.
    The whole science experiment origin has been done way to much in the Ultimate Universe. The Hulk, Thor, Cap. America, Spider-man, The Fantastic Four, Ant-man, The Wasp, Iron Man and many others have a Scientific origin. Just thought it was time for some magic to come into the Ultimate universe.

    Superstrength wouldnt make him interesting though would it. So far in Ultimate Universe we have Hulk, Thing, Colossus, Giant-Man, Beast, Blob, Thor, Spidey and even Cap with Superstrength (plus the villains like Ock, The Osbornes, Abomination etc). But there's no one who is a constant colliding bundle of kinetic energy - its a unique power, even in the regular MU.

    If you want Magic, then use his original origin and tweak how he gets into the kinetic dimension - the interning at a lab or experiment gone wrong schtick has been overdone so use magical origins of the urn as an access point to the kinetic dimension or something, and dont make him a mutant. Superhumans outside of spidey and the FF who werent created by SHIELD or its overseas nemesis are few and far between. Mutants are all over the place.

    No you shouldn't, this has no connection to Speedball at all.

    Deemar, i want him to be different than the 616 version.
    I've taken out the Superstrength, he has no need for it and i havent even used it.
    but i still want a different power. any Suggestions?
    and should i just go into Terrax, or should i just makeup a new one?

    If he aint got the same power as speedball, then he aint speedball - jeez...

    Ultimate is to revamp an existing character, not to apply a 616 name to a brand new person... (unless its ben reilly, but then the carnage symbiote might use him as a host and turn him into a clone of peter as its based on peters dna. But I digress)

    You dont make Cyclops and guy who generates hurricane force winds from his hands just cos you dont want him the same. You dont make Hulk a radiation absorber who uses it to increase his speed or something...
