Is Taskmaster a good guy or is he a bad guy?
Is he Good or Bad ?
@ReVamp: What do you mean the story where they said that Taskmaster has no memories or the Avengers Academy story that referenced it directly.
I don't read Avengers Academy so that I don't know but it was first in a minnie that sucked if you like Taskmaster then I say don't read it
You mean the retcon story about Taskmaster's past? That was in Van Lente's Taskmaster mini-series. Christos Gage had Taskmaster reference it in his appearance in Avengers Academy # 9.
@Morpheus_: well that is disappointing
When was this story? Where?
@BloodTalon: I actually liked the mini but the retcon was absolutely unnecessary, and I agree it flat out contradicts just about everything we previously knew about his past. However, it seems that this is the way Marvel wants to use the character from this point onwards.
i prefer the mini personally. the idea that he is only a "bad guy" because he doesn't remember being good. and that his powers were the result of stopping the reincarnation of HITLER. the personal touch and piecing together of who is as a person and where he came from as the taskmaster made him less of a daunting yet mock able figure looming in the darkness.
He's a bad-neutral guy. He guys to the Highest bidder. He will do anything for money which isn't normal. Most people have some limit to what they will do. He doesn't (apart from maybe genocide). So that's why i call him a bad neutral guy because he still does anything. Also he has done bad things of his own accord. Actually that was his main revenue. His academies. They train murderers and thieves.
No he's an anti-villain..! An anti-villain is a villain who clearly does bad things and often fights the hero but has good qualities and most the time is only a villain due to circumstances or because he truly believes he is doing a greater good. I think Taskmaster is a good guy as much as Deadpool or even Punisher are but heroes don't pay as much so he works with villains
