Deserves some wins...

#1 Posted by DanielThomasRandKai (46 posts) - - Show Bio

I just finished reading Taskmasters biography, and noticed all of his big battles he lost.  He even lost to Deadpool while the Mercs hands and feet were tied up(I may be bias because I find Deadpool overrated, but this still seems unfair).  I think he deserves to defeat an A-List hero and earn himself some cred.  With abilities like his, he should be one of the best combatants in the MU.  But it feels the writers don't utilize his true potential...he could be one of the best villains.  He almost seems wasted.  Thoughts?

Tasky definitely needs more wins. He's a great character and has been rising in popularity over the last few years. He could be the Deathstroke of Marvel Earth if written correctly.

@DanielThomasRandKai:
I agree. And hope that writers will give Taskmaster some big wins.

The worst part is how he lost to Moon Knight imo.

Can I marry you sir ?
 
It's so sad that Marvel can't see just how incredible this character can be if given a chance. At the very least he should have an ongoing series, somebody should try at least.

They've made losing part of his character and touched on it during siege when he talked about how he didn't belong with the A-Listers and so on. I'd love to see them give him a big push by beating a few solid B-Listers and low A-Listers at least . I would have him beat up Punisher,Bullseye,Deadpool,Hawkeye,Batrok and have him draw with Ironfist, Captain America,Wolverine, and other top notch fighters to establish him as one of the best.

To be fair though, Deadpool has always been Taskmaster's kryptonite.....mostly to do with the fact that Deadpool is unpredictable and crazy and hard to copy cause he's constantly changing his style.Obviously a combat copycat would have a hard time copying somebody who is always doing things that he normally would do.

So Deadpool taking down Taskmaster is somewhat acceptable.....but yes, I agree with you. Taskmaster needs some more wins under his belt. Losing the Nick Fury Jr was unacceptable and the lowest lost in my opinion, I don't care how much you want to hype up that character. Taskmaster (a man who's defeated Iron Fist and Captain America) losing to a nobody like Nick Fury Jr.....no....just no.
