Me and HigorM were debating this in that tourney. I admitted this would be a particularly good fight and said I was going to make a thread for it.

Here it is.

I really do like this fight doe

With weapons, probably Taskmaster. But I'm really not sure........

Standard gear I would lean towards Taskmaster. Unarmed Cass would probably win. UDON Task is could probably beat her unarmed though.

@nickzambuto: nice :)

personally i think she wins via body reading.. she is faster then him, she will know what his is going to do before he even do it.. that´s the way she fights..

by the picture i don´t think this is udon taskmaster.. and he can keep his double speed for ever, if he uses that will make him get tired earlier, if not, he won´t be able to follow her moves..

Cass beat Lady Shiva and Batman so I'd have to go with her. I don't know too much about Taskmaster though, so I could be wrong.

He can literally copy any fighting style just by watching it. When he was just starting his career, he taught himself martial arts by watching old Bruce Lee movies. He's gone toe to toe with Deadpool, Captain America, Spider-Man, and more. He has the potential to be more skilled (he'll just copy Cass's moves during the fight) as well as being physically superior and having better gear.

Cass on the other hand is probably a bit faster, and has that handy muscle reading.

Cass also has shown the ability to copy peoples styles just like taskmaster she did it to shadow thief. I don't recall taskmaster doing that good with deadpool. All though cass's body reading isn't that big of an advantage either because taskmaster has also shown to be able to do that.

And Bronze Tiger, when she was just a child. Taskmaster has a generally horrible record against Deadpool. It's more poor writing than anything else.

I don't think losing to someone who's FTL is a bad showing... eh Bane?

@CitizenBane: Has she ever showed bronze tigers moves on panel? I'm not doubting she knows them just curious. I agree about the deadpool vs taskmaster I was mostly just pointing out that taskmaster doesn't have a good showing against deadpool.

@jashro44: There was a flashback to her training near the end of her book where she was training as a child with Bronze Tiger. He knocked her down with a slash, she got up and mimicked the slash.

Going with Cain here.

So very hard to fight past TM's jobber aura ... too hard to see him winning against a consistent A gamer like Cain.

With standard gear and taskmaster with his jobber aura on should be able to take down cass. The barrage of weapons should generally keep her off paced long enough for task to put her down long enough to claim a victory. H2H only would also be good but Cass would take that in a long fight.

Taskmaster. Twice as strong, just as fast, short-term double fast, and weapons.

i agree with super_soldier, Tasky is definietly not twice as strong, and I'd wager Cass is faster

He probably came to that conclusion keeping in mind Tasky's double time ability,but even on double time Cass is still physically superior,he cant keep it up for long,and the canonocity is disputed.

That issue has been resolved now. It was debated as being non-canon due to a difference in Taskmasters origin that was retconned in the Van Lente mini-series. However the repercussions of things that Taskmaster did in his first mini-series and Agent X (where he also wore the UDON suit) were still seen in Cable/Deadpool and Dark Reign. So the suit and his abilities are still canon the only thing that isn't is the origin that was replaced by Van Lente's one. It also hasn't been explained why Taskmaster doesn't use double time when out of his UDON suit because he should still be able too.

Taskmaster is too over the place for me to say he takes this. He has low showings against Deadpool and then his impressive showings against Spider-Man back in the day and more recently dominating Venom. Written properly... I think he should probably win.

I'm tempted to just say that Cassie wins in like five seconds. A couple of quick perfectly placed nerve strikes before he really knows what's going on, and he's down for the count. Good thing for him she's not a killer.

She fights and reads people like an expert linguist speaks and reads languages.

Tony is good but he can't win this...because what makes Taskmaster such a dangerous opponent is the fact that he can copy his opponents moves and add them to his arsenal, but Cass also can and has done the same thing:

No Caption Provided

On top of that, Cass can also read body-language fluently, like a regular person speaks english, to the point that she can effortlessy predict her opponents next moves before they even make them...basically, Taskmaster has no advantages over her, she's also faster than him by feats, a problem that Taskmaster could solve with his double-speed technique but he can't keep that form for long and he won't be able to oneshot her with it because Cass has dozens of meta-human-speed-feats in close-quarters, and being stronger than your opponent means nothing if you can't land a hit.

I'm not saying that Taskmaster gets stomped, but i just don't see him winning.
