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.

Depends on the Villain i would say :) but i think the best results would be a combination of many different Methods.

Question: What mind control device and techniques would be best to make a super a willing pornstar? Or should I make one up?

Well I've updated the Bimbotech storyline with a possible plot twist that could develop. :)
Grimmer - 9/26/2014 12:09 PM
Well let me know if you have any ideas for this storyline beyond Diana discovering that absolutely every hero, villain, male and female alike, are as fat and slothful as she and Bruce are.

Thanks, Grimmer. Man oh man, this has been a rough few months. Every time I THINK I've got everything under control, someone I was counting on goes off the rails or some system breaks down. I got home last night, looked at my computer, and said "I'v

gothamalleyviper, glad you like the new chapters. I will not have time to add anything to Rubber Queen before the weekend so I look forward to your next chapter.
Grimmer - 9/26/2014 10:14 AM
Burke, thanks for updating one of my options for Random Romance. Expect a continuing chapter from me in the future. And don't worry, I won't rush to enact another change, as I know that's an issue you've had with my work in the past on Forever Changing
gothamalleyviper - 9/25/2014 6:39 PM
ESChorcho, I like it, I am going to post something this weekend for Rubber Queen, of you want to take the Royal Court to Dawn or Helena and Dinah to Dawn that would be help me and be interesting.
