    Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Taskmaster is copy-cat killer
    Mike Winder on Feb. 17, 2011 | 4:59 p.m.

    A great deal has changed since gamers last pitted villains and heroes from the Marvel and Capcom universes against one another in Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes. That fighting game debuted in arcades — yes, arcades — in early 2000. Now, more than a decade later, Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds has just arrived for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Here at Hero Complex, we’ve been marking the release with a series of posts looking at the game’s Marvel villains, their history and their combat moves. Today: Taskmaster

    Ever wonder where supervillains like Dr. Doom, MODOK and Magneto get their endless supplies of minions who are willing to carry out their crazy plans?

    In the Marvel universe, many of them are provided by Tony Masters, a.k.a. Taskmaster, a villain with photographic reflexes and a costume that resembles the grim reaper on summer vacation. Taskmaster’s ability to duplicate any action after simply observing it has made him a mentor to countless under-appreciated henchmen, a constant threat to superheroes and, more recently, a training instructor for the U.S. government.

    “Anything the Avengers can do, I can do better!” is how his creators, writer David Michelinie and artist George Pérez, had the villain introduce himself on the cover of The Avengers No. 196 in 1980. In that same issue, Taskmaster brags that he can sling his shield harder than Captain America, shoot arrows more skillfully than Hawkeye and perform more death-defying gymnastics than Spider-Man.

    The only Marvel villain to appear in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 who doesn’t hail from the Silver Age of comics, Taskmaster is one of the game’s “secret” characters, meaning he can only be unlocked after reaching 6,000 player points, a task which, according to Capcom’s Seth Killian, can be achieved in about an hour of gameplay.



    News: Taskmaster Action Figures Comes With Avengers #196

    Top 10 Marvel Legends Action Figures (Series 11) - The Legendary Rider Series

    Guide Picks


    MARVEL LEGENDS SERIES 11: TASKMASTER (Jan 2006)
    Toy Biz brings back the Marvel Legends action figure format for an eleventh series, the Legendary Rider Series. Each action figure is highly articulated and comes packaged with a reprinted comic book, or in some cases, a poster book. The idea behind Marvel Legends is to create definitive action figure interpretations of classic Marvel characters. Each figure in series 11 is packaged with a vehicle which they can ride in a legendary fashion. Series 11 also includes a Marvel Vs. game card.

    1) Scarlet Witch Action Figure
    The Scarlet Witch action figure is being re-worked and will be released in a later series of Marvel Legends. However, before this decision was made, a limited number of Scarlet Witch figures were released in Asia. You may see them on eBay, but rest assured that when she is finally released, she will have a wide release and should not be difficult to find. The revised version will be much-improved, so it should not be a loss to your collection to not have the initial scrapped version.

    2) Variant Wonder Man Action Figure
    The variant version of the Wonder Man action figure will be easy to spot, as he is cast in a translucent blue/purple color, depicting his "ionic" nature.

    6) Taskmaster Action Figure
    The Taskmaster action figure has 34 points of articulation and comes with an air scooter. (I would describe it more as a glider, but the packaging calls it an air scooter.) He also has an arsenal of weapons: sword, pistol, quiver, billy club, and shield.

    9) Wonder Man Action Figure
    The Wonder Man action figure has 36 points of articulation and comes with an air-glider vehicle. The package also includes a small figure of Yellow Jacket, posed in mid-flight.
