I seem to be the only person reading Cable & Deadpool, but whatever. It's a great series (the one that introduced me to Deadpool :))
Anyways in C&D number 36 Deadpool fights Taskmaster manacled and wins. My question to anyone is this: Do you think Taskmaster let Deadpool win or (like Tasky admitted) is Deadpool just too good? Personally I think the latter. How about you?

#2 Posted by The_MVPs (84693 posts) - - Show Bio

No I think Deadpool beat Taskmaster cause of Tasky's arrogance. He fought him before an thought he had copied his style. But he soon realized that Deadpool is crazy and his style cant be copied. I think its a lame excuse, but still, Tasky didnt let him win.

I don't think Taskmaster let him win because he doesn't have his own free will but I think Deadpool's writers always want it to seem as if Taskmaster isn't in Deadpool's league.

I don't think Taskmaster let himself get beat. Deadpool is really good, he's just crazy so no one takes him seriously (in general, not in that fight, think TM was serious then) like TM and the military dudes were saying. I don't think TM's inability to copy DP factored in much, he just got beat.

You're not the only person reading C&DP (well maybe you are, the series is over now), I read it all the way through and enjoyed it. I know other people did too.

When are they gonna make a new Deadpool series?

It's not hard to accept Deadpool beating Taskmaster but when Deadpool's arms and legs were bound with rope and he still beat him...that's too far.

I'm reading the TPB volumes, but it's good to know I'm not the only person who's read it!

DP also fought better than usual because he was specifically trying to impress people. This was right after Cable made a fool out of him worldwide. :)

Seeing as how he's in the Initiative..I don't get why that would happen....

yeah Taskmaster is one of the main characters and teachers in the Initiative...but who knows? maybe all that would change after the SI?

but there IS one way this might happen..

in Initiative #13 i think, Pym and War Machine are warning Taskmaster about a possible hit on him...Taskmaster didn't seem worried and said "Bullseye is with the Thunderbolts, Elektra is dead again, and i don't tihnk they can send me to kill myself..." or something like that...but the never mentioned DP....maybe someone will hire Deadpool to assasinate Taskmaster???

lol...i'm juzt hoping here...

I was talking about him being in the new Deadpool arc.  I know he is in the Initiative.

I like deadpool and task master and I did read that ish so let me say first that I think the bottem line is TM can't kill DP as seen in said ish when TM stabed DP through the chest witch would be an end game for a lot of people. Alwright now that that has been sead I do however think that the wrighter did punk TM just a littel

#26 Posted by Mr. Wilson (6322 posts) - - Show Bio

Well DP is 2-0 against Tasky.

#27 Posted by Suigetsu (1720 posts) - - Show Bio

It looks like the rumors of the return of taskmaster where wrong.

tought another match would be cool tought , however so far the fight scenes have looked kind of static to me, specially in issue 3.

That was Deadpool not taking him seriously.  In the other issues he confronts him seriously and completes his mission....  Deadpool can take out Wolverine, this is a nobody.

As much as I hate to say it I do believe that Deadpool beat Taskmaster purely out of skill. Yes he can be that good. He really frustrates me as a character but he is a good fighter. Taskmaster also had difficulties because his powers failed him as Deadpool was too unpredictable for him. But no, he did not just let Deadpool win.

He confronts him again and gets his ass kicked. Cyclops actually saves Deadpool from getting stomped out.

That's false.Deadpool is not that good.Marvel doesn't even agree with ou on that one.He is a good fighter but he's not better than Taskmaster.Taskmaster beat several good fighters at once...and he is a master of all styles.Taskmaster doesn't need to copy Deadpool's moves to beat him because nobody else copies them to beat him.
According to the Marvel Deadpool is a level 6 fighter and Taskmaster is a level 7..meaning Deadpool is a master of several styles and Taskmaster  is a master of all.Let's also not forget Deadpool's track record compared to Taskmasters...Deadpool couldn't even touch Daredevil,He lost to two Teenagers called the Twisted Sisters...with no powers,He lost to Silver Sable,Domino (several times),Shatterstar,Bullseye,The Punisher,The Cat,She-Hulk,and The Kingpin.Taskmaster has beaten far better fighters than these I just mentioned beating Deadpool...People like Captain America and people who greatly outclass him like Spider-Man & the Power Pack.

Deadpool is one of the 4th wall breaking characters who seem to beat these same people everytime.Wolverine,Taskmaster,& Weapon X.Even if his is handicapped and can't fully move he always seems to get a win.I think this is a rivalry thing..like how Hercules keeps up with Thor although Thor outclasses him in almost every way.Same with Iron Fist & Daredevil.Iron Fist is said to be above DD in fighting skill but he never beat him and even showed Iron Fist a few moves.

ohh you meant shen kuei?

well at that time deadpool was having he's ass handled by most in cable and deadpool but right now, I dont think so.

BTW According to marvel? last time I checked there, deadpool had full fighting prowess, never the less I think that blah vs blah talks are uber boring so if you are gonna start that then I have no interest.
I find it funny how people take them as if they where real people and they forget that they are fiction chars wich are written, so all this stuff really depends on the writter.

The Marvel handbook puts Deadpool on level 6 for fighting skill and Taskmaster on level 7.Nobody is acting if they are real people either...we just don't want stupid writing.

just cause someone is 6 or 7 lvl fighter doesn't mean u get an automatic win it's use of wpns terrain and opportunity which explains why some lesser fighter can win against a higher fighter. just cause your a 8th degree black belt doesn't mean u can kick my ass if i rosham beau u.

Nobody said that you should get an automatic win because you are on a higher level.The way they make Deadpool beat Taskmaster is the part everyone is pissed off about.Taskmaster is supposed to be a master of all styles..yet he can't beat a guy using no weapons while he is armed in combat.Deadpool has beaten Taskmaster with his arms and legs tied up,he has beaten Taskmaster while fighting 3 other level 5-6 fighters.It's ridiculous and makes no sense.Taskmaster has beaten people of a higher caliber than Deadpool..he even held his own against Iron Man.Him losing to Deadpool that many times makes absolutely no sense.

Yeah, even though he has beat Silver Sable before and Domino has beaten Cable in the C&DP series as well so it is just bad writing....
#44 Posted by castleking (24119 posts) - - Show Bio

but regardless i still think deadpool would win it's his mouth that is so distracting and aggrevating and he is just as skilled as any high tier fighter the fact that you can't put him down gives him the edge. and he was using bazooka  and a sneak atk with the dart was funny as hell. like "a grain of sand in a sand storm."

I don't remember Deadpool ever beating Silver Sable..and Deadpool beat Cable too so if Deadpool can do it I don't see how Domino can't.

no your wrong,Shen Kuei hited DP from surprise with a poison strong enought to kill 20 elephants.
still Shen Kuei taking on DP isnt a surprise,i mean that guy by himself was beating the Bad Girls (you know,the team with 3 hot chicks?)
