TASKMASTER #4

“THE FUTURE BELONGS TO MILF”
The Org is revealed to be an S.H.I.E.L.D front with both Taskmaster and his wife as its sole members. The MILF and the Redshirt attack while the Secret Avengers arrive after the battle. Taskmaster mimics the fighting styles of Daredevil, Black Knight, Iron Fist, Spider-Man, and many more including the Redshirt. Fred Van Lente really brought the sympathetic character out of the villain Taskmaster. He sacrificed everything to be the best however lost the memory of his wife when he injected himself with the memory serum. He did it again at the conclusion to defeat the Redshirt before he killed both himself and his wife. Great conclusion that gave a depth into the Taskmaster character.
