Two of the best characters at Marvel right now. At first glance, they’re kind of the same, the only difference is that DP is completely insane! I really liked the character development for Taskmaster during Dark Reign and Siege. That set him apart from DP. That was mostly by Chris Gage in Avengers: The Initiative, which got so much better when he took over from Dan Slott IMHO. I’m interested in seeing if the writer for the new Taskmaster mini can maintain that level that Gage set.
Also, Daniel Way does such a better job of writing Deadpool than anyone else. He has the voice (or all three) of the character.
All I know is I love the Deadpool comic where they’re taking on the Thunderbolts and Taskmaster is dressed up as Deadpool along with Deadpool. I forget the issue number, but hilarity ensues.
Dark Reign Deadpool #9! You win lol.
Taskmaster is looking an awful lot like Skeletor…
amen! I never liked his character. I just don’t get the hooded Skeletor thing. How does that relate to mastering tasks?
There ain’t nothing wrong with trying to be like Skeletor.
no.. there sure isn’t. After all, Red Skull was first so…
which begs the question… who was the first skull-faced comic character???
Skeleton-like characters in order of importance:
2. Red Skull
3. Jack Skellington
…but they’re all cool lol.
I’m gonna go ahead and say that Red Skull gets the honor of being the oldest. At least of the four R1 listed.
I didn’t say OLDEST, I said most IMPORTANCE/AWESOMENESS.
