A Thought on Working Stiffs

by MacroLass - 7/18/2014 6:45 PM

Not to crap on your story concept but I never really considered Taskmaster a "common man".  I don't know what Marvel's done with him recently but he never goes unmasked, leads groups of agents, and tends to be a very precise and meticulous planner.  When you're talking about schlubs, I don't think he fits that mold. 

However, it's your story, so do what you will with it.

He actually has been seen unmasked... after Dr. Doom BLASTED HIS FACE OFF.  The scenes listed in this are why I consider Tasky to be among the 'working stiff' supervillains.http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/1402508.html#cutid1

I have to admit that I'm of two minds seeing those scans.  While it is some good characterization and an excellent character piece, I always liked the Taskmaster as this very mysterious figure who was frigging impossible to beat and had dozens of nasty tricks up his sleeve.  Seeing that makes him...kind of mundane.  I mean, what's next for him, working kids' birthday parties?  Sheesh. 

Anyway, I hope you get someone to bite on your story eventually.  It's a good concept.  I'd join in except I promised myself I'd only work 1 story a day...and I'm already pushing it writing on the 3 stories I'm doing now.

Good enough and funny. Well done, GAV.

Let me know what people think of Nightwing's downfall. Did I go to far with it or not far enough?

Captain suggestion and question on Boards. Especially for GAV.
