Female Taskmaster?

#1 Posted by Lokheit (489 posts) - - Show Bio

So according to the description of Finesse powers, can we say that she is the teenager female version of taskmaster?

It was hinted at in the issue that focussed on her.  I think it was Avenges Academy #2.

A female Taskmaster? I can't wait for the inevitable team-up with X-23 and Lady Deadpool!

It's been suggested (and mooted) in Avengers Academy that she might be related with Taskmaster... much in the same way that the new Young Allies built the new Bastards of Evil up to be the next generation of famous super villains.

According to the latest issue of Taskmaster, he got his abilities from a hormone injection well into adulthood. So they probably aren't related.

@PumpkinBomb: I don't understand where the new Taskmaster mini fits in.  The memory loss & recent addition of powers don't fit in with the character I grew to love in Avengers Initiative. 
 
Anywho... we might get the answers sooner rather than later... 
 

Avengers Academy #9

I've always been hoping that Taskmaster was related to Kate Bishop. Uncle Tony or something. And as for Taskmaster's abilities I think he still had some powers in childhood but the injection increased his powers.

And... the tagline for that issue is "Come To Poppa!"

Ugh.   
 
Now we're going to get the Marvel Ravage, huh.

I hate when this happens in comics, not every super polymath character or characters with photographic memories and all that need to be related to each other. Same goes with electromagnetic powers and most powers generally. lol 
 
The recent Taskmaster mini was entertaining, well written but violated continuity like a hippo kills more people in Africa than any other big game animal. FVL said he learned about Taskmaster from wikipedia!?! I am hoping that Finesse is intrigued but doesn't turn out to be Tasky's daughter or W/E.

I think this picture from AA #12 is another hint that Finesse and Taskmaster are related.
