Haven't been this happy my subscription has lapsed since Fraction's putrid run of defiling Thor came to an end.

So many of these characters are so amazingly cliche'ish. Cyclops, Wolverine, Batman, blah, blah, blah.

Give us The Tick, X-O Manowar or Black Canary.

If you want the X-Men, fine, but how about Bishop, Kitty Pride, Longshot, Thunderbird or Cannonball.

I use to be a big Taskmaster fan, until the lusciously stupid memory issues they created. Which, did I mention, are reality-crushingly stupid and poorly implemented?

Anyway, Taskmaster is a very highly skilled human. But that's it. He is still human. Slade has intelligence, strength and speed which are above human. Plus he is a fantastic combatant. Add in that his Nth Metal armor and such ...


Now, if you evened the playing field on abilities, this would be a closer fight, but as is I think Slade takes it 8/10.

@novemberx2: I hear ya and quite agree. However we do have a choice. I think it is just indicative of the snowballing nonsense that Marvel is allowing to happen to their print medium. I exercise my choice by spending my money else where.

Hopefully, someday, they will turn it back around ...

It's sad how long standing comic book readers/writers have embraced "Nick Fury, Jr."

Should be an interesting mix. Johns writes a good story line, it can get a bit convoluted at times, but keep it interesting enough to keep you coming back.

Team that with JRJR absolutely putrid attempt at 'art'.

Can JRJR near complete lack of talent trump Johns' story writing. Only time will tell.

Hopefully he can give Marvel a bit of a shot in the arm, as it were.

Anything that anyone can do to stem the consistent tide of crap they have been coming out with since Quesada took over is a step in the right direction.

Always good to see not everyone has forgotten what Nick Fury really looks like.
