Who's better?! Echo or Tasky

#1 Posted by spider2dfly (230 posts) - - Show Bio

They both have the same skills, but who is better in copying and applying the moves of other superheroes and villains to their opponents? I mean, Echo is deaf, but she can still kick a bad guy's butt. Tasky's has more experience, but he still manage to gets his butt kicked. Can anyone help me in here..

good fight but deaf..
experienced but still defeated..

Taskmaster has been shown to be better in my opinion. But it could be that he's been around longer and has studied more others.

Taskmaster. He not only copies the moves of people he's fought, but he's also able to watch and copy them from t.v./movies.

He's also able to use a limited version of increased speed called "Double Time"

I dont believe Echo can do that. Or at least hasn't been shown to.

Hopefully both characters get more ink in the future.

Great characters.

I love Echo..she is in my top 10 of favorite characters but she's hasn't been fully developed yet.Taskmaster has been around for years.It's an unfair match-up as to who is a better character.I like Taskmaster but he is poorly written more than half the time to look like an inferior martial artist.

As far as a fighter...Echo IMO has shown to be the better fighter IMO.She would have never lost to Deadpool while his arms and legs were tied or while he was fighting 3 other villians,she would have never been scared of Moon Knight...and if it wasn't for DD being such a ladies man...she probably would have killed him. (which brings me to the point..I am tired of male\female hero fights ending in a kiss).

Tasky for me. Of course he's going to lose more. He's been around longer and has become more than a guest villain. When a character only pops up for a short while they can look good and be gone. When they hang around they're more subject to getting short shrifted so they don't show up too many others, so they "know their place" and whatnot. Regardless though, I like Taskmaster better as a character and I also think his abilities are better. Methos mentioned his double time, but he's also better with his normal move copying in general. Comparing how much Echo needs to watch fights (check out how much she watched videos of just Bullseye and Daredevil to get them down) and how fast Taskmaster does it (perfectly copying moves in the middle of a fight) or just the variety he has over her he seems to be better. Anyway, that's what I think.

Well Echo have a big disadvantage in being deaf.
Has she ever beaten anyone noteworthy?

She almost beat Daredevil..she started off as one of his villains.In fact what she did to him should have killed him but being the hero he lived.

I think their photographic reflexes are equal. Echo could do whatever Taskmaster could do. Taskmaster just has more experience at what he does.

Echo has actually watched the fights of Daredevil and I believe Bullseye when she was first introduced so she could prepare to battle Daredevil.  So for me Echo.

taskmaster=echo. echo = taskmaster. they r both awsome!

Taskmaster has the edge in experience and he actually uses the weapons of people he copies, so he beats Echo in my opinion.

I would have to pick Taskmaster, I mean the guy can call on Cap's movies or Bruce Lee's. Plus you can't really count his loses against him, after all he is a villian and villians are ment to lose. You can't have Taskmaster wiping the floor with guys like Cap, Moonknight, or Black Knight all the time. Also I dont' know much about Echo, but if she is deaf I am sure Taskmaster would just whip the shield at her from a distance to knock her out. Now I don't know if she has a radar sense like Dare Devil, so I am measuring that against she doesn't.

I think I have to go with Taskmaster. Didn't he kick all the avengers's butts first time he showed up? Echo has to manage that before she moves in the same category (but she's still totally awesome on my list and as a character I like her better than Taskamster because she is more developed).

Well as far as fighting skill itself goes,Taskmaster is obviously better because he's been around longer.
Echo however has a better track record.Elektra is the only person who has beaten her.Oh and Spider-Woman but I don't count that.

Echo.

Taskmaster not only does he make better use of his ability, but he also has an eye for potential and is a great teacher.

Taskmaster doesn't make better use of his ability.He's been around alot longer than Echo.Echo hasn't had time to do any of those things.Neither is better.Photographic reflexes is photographic reflexes.There is no levels.It's not like healing factor,energy manipulation,speed,or strength.

I don't know about who would win in a fight but to me Echo is a way better character.
