When I first saw Taskmaster in an Avengers comic in the 80s, I immediately was drawn to him. You have to admit, he has a pretty cool power. Who wouldn't want the ability to be able to mimic anyone's moves or actions?
Taskmaster has never been a straight arrow so it makes total sense that he would use his abilities for...less than noble things. He made a living and reputation training other villains how to fight and kill.
Taskmaster was doing the right thing when he was involved in the Initiative. He helped trained new heroes. But with Norman Osborn's Dark Reign over, where does that leave him? It turns out a rumor surfaced that he's working for Steve Rogers and so became the target of a billion dollar bounty hunt. Now, to find out who framed him, he'll have to discover his own secret origin.
