So in the latest issues of secret avengers taskmaster died. Do you think he's out of the series or is this part of the book's conspiracy theme it has?

An oxymoron at it's finest.

some weeks ago, I tweeded Ales Kot (The writer) about it and he just replied with a ----> :D (whatever that means)

The fanboy in me is hoping he'll come back since there's a minor hint in the story about mind control / resurrection ala Universal Soldier. Friends in the Toy industry also gave their opinion that most B-C grade characters who have their own figures / game appearances never truly stay dead for long. But that's just me hoping.

For as long as Tasky's status remains unchanged, I'll keep my distance from comics. >_<

He's alive.

I'm reading through Deadpool #27 from Marvel Now - Taskmaster was alive and well and drunk at the wedding party. This Takes place in the Marvel 616 cannon (i guess) months after the events of AIM island. I don't know why or how but I'm just glad he's back on his feet - oh and he rode off in a Harely like a boss.

Also, Elektra Marvel now #1 (this April) he was mentioned in a Flashback involving her current story arc - and it was implied that his involvement in the prelude to the story was recent.

Avenger World # 9 - haven't seen this yet - but from what i understand, there might be an alternate future version of him there in an AIM run world (i think). I'm not crazy about following alternate or "possible" timeline versions of him - but he seems to have been roboticized in a way. and i am curious to see where it goes.

He's getting some pretty good exposure on TV as well - being a somewhat important player in Season 3 of Ultimate Spiderman. For all intents and purposes - we can safely say he's alive and well in the main Marvel universe. :)

He'll come back. I'm pretty sure Nick Spencer has plans for him.
