If you think I missed someone or you disagree with the order, feel free to point that out.

Not much else to say.

Wouldn't Gorgon be above Taskmaster?

It would be more comprehensible if at least one liner statements/reason was given for each of them why they are at this position. At least your opinion on it. As I do not really know these guys that well apart from Deadpool.

Gamora was confirmed taking part in the single greatest display of sword fighting in the entire history of the 616 universe while facing a Space Knight. A Rigellian Recorder who had access to every single moment of history across the universe checked and confirmed that she and the Space Knight were in the middle of the greatest sword fight in all of 616. So I consider Gamora #1.

I can't recall one time when Tasky hasn't lost to Deadpool

Interesting, I always had the impression that Harada was one of the top 3 swordsmen in the MU.

@kevd4wg: Rocket Raccoon and Groot: Steal the Galaxy.

It’s a prose novel by Dan Abnett. It’s the first prose novel by Marvel that wasn’t an adaptation of another comic, while still taking place in the 616 universe.

@kevd4wg: Ya. Abnett said in an interview that Marvel asked him to adapt one of his old Gaurdian comics, like Annihilation: Conquest into a prose novel. He told them he didn’t want to write a story that he already told, and would only do a Gaurdians prose novel if he could write an original story that takes place in canon. Marvel gave him the go ahead.

He goes out of the way in the novel to make sure everyone know that it’s canon too. The Rigellian Recorder I mentioned, in my original comment, is a main character. He refers to the universe as “The 616 Universe” a lot. He even mentions that multiple universes exist, but the story is taking place in the 616 universe.

It’s actully a pretty good book if you want to check it out. And if you like audio books, Graphic Audio has a really awesome version. It has a full soundtrack, separate voice actors for each character, and sound effects for all of the action. It feels more like watching a movie then listening to a book.

And Abnett is still the best Guardians writer (along with Lanning), so you know you’re getting good Guardians.

@thewatcherking I wouldn't say so. Tony is way more consistent, and Gorgon mostly sticks out due to his superhuman abilities. Not saying he's not skilled. I just don't think he's as good as Taskmaster.

==============================================================================

@empressofdread I didn't feel like I had to do so. I made it because I wanted others to share their thoughts on it so I can add more characters. I guess I could edit the list and add some info.

==================================================================================

@heroup2112 Thanks.

================================================================================

@galactic_1000 "Wow" what LOL? :)

===============================================================================

@destinyman75 I could add 15 more characters. Balder was one of them. But I decided to put only those that I'm 100% sure should be here. I'm not that knowledgeable on Balder so I decided not to put him. Then again, this list is made for the sake of others sharing their opinion, so if you could bring up some feats or statements for Balder, maybe I could add him.

=================================================================================

@tparks Interesting. I'll add Gamora.

=============================================================================

@kid_high Deadpool defeated and/or got the best of Taskmaster only when the latter was jobbing or when Deadpool countered his ability to copy moves due to sheer unpredictability. Tony still defeated Wade on multiple occasions and is overall a MUCH better Martial Artist based on standalone feats.

=================================================================================

@all-father Based on what I have seen, everyone from Ogun to Dane should be superior swordsman to Harada. You could argue he's better than Shang Chi but it has already been stated that he is better than Harada, although the statement may not apply to swordsmanship but raw skill overall. Take that as you wish, but I don't think it is debatable with the other 7 (8 since I'm adding Gamora).

By the way, are you finishing that Daredevil vs. Cassandra Cain CaV?

Eventually yes. BPIB wants a fourth post and I'm currently busy with Uni stuff. I'll get to it eventually.
