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.

Gorel: I'd love to, but it will be a while. My schedule is pretty overtaxed. I'll get to it, but please don't wait on me.

Any favourites for non-Dc, Non-Marvel comics/superhero characters to go through the 24 hour challenge?
supersizeme198 - 4/22/2017 4:26 PM
Please leave feedback for LMS.

Can someone give me a way to contact the admin?
JimmyKasche - 4/22/2017 9:16 AM
I think only the admin can delete those spam choices.
rgillespie94 - 4/22/2017 9:07 AM
Is there any way to delete extra chapters on adventures? A lot of them are things like "We're at University together" or "Where's he nearest cash machine" you know, things that aren't story connected at all.
Gorel - 4/21/2017 8:43 PM
Well CorruptionCentral if you'd like to add to Monster Kryptonite, go ahead.

I am opting to make Tim a Mobile Phone Gamer since mobile games are designed to drag "Normal Non-Gamers" into the universe of the game as easily as possible. Hence MAA's "Normal" to iconic character design progrations.

I'm all for references to Avengers Academy... I love a lot of their designs :P
