    Oh. My. God.


    If only Taskmaster were as ignorant as you, Bullseye would destroy him instantly.

    Thankfully, that isn't the case.

    -edit-

    And Bullseye' powers really need to say more than just "perfect accuracy".

    More like "any object thrown by Bullseye is a lethal weapon, and he throws with perfect accuracy".

    Murderworld was the perfect setting for that.

    Perfect accuracy is something that changes based on the situation, so Taskmaster can't copy it... but his study of Spider-Man and Daredevil's moves, plus the fact he can temporarily improve his speed and reflexes, should keep him from getting one-shot killed.

    For match one, I see Gentleman Ghost winning, unless Shiva is a virgin or Stonehedge has some effect on him. I'm guessing the former isn't true.

    well you see, Synthetic Orange, Bullseye can kill people with mundane objects. it's sort of his deal. so using the nutty myth busters proof physics of comic books, he can kill someone with a playing card or a thumbtack, hell, even a rubber band.

    Lady Shiva is done, she has no way to even hurt Gentleman Ghost.

    Match two favors Bullseye because as others have said, Taskmaster can't just copy his accuracy because it isn't really a move or anything. Only chance Taskmaster has is to spring a trap somewhere in Murderworld with his mines or something like that.

    It's not as though Taskmaster has never seen anyone fight and beat Bullseye. Also, even if he can't copy Bullseye's accuracy, he can copy his ability to throw anything with deadly force (not just from this fight, but from watching prior fights).

    Shiva, meanwhile, has a chance since Ghost apparently doesn't have his guns this time around. He needs to go tangible to hit her. Someone as trained in the martial arts as her, meanwhile, may be spiritually attuned enough to detect his presence if he should become invisible.

    In addition to having photographic memory, Taskmaster's body can perfectly duplicate any movement Taskmaster has observed at any point in time. This ranges from perfectly duplicating a pianist's performance without any prior experience to mimicking a martial arts maneuver that takes normal people decades to master.

    And he's watched tons of videos and new footage, so his repertoire is filled with superhero moves along with things he's picked up during his travels around the world.

    You know, if Taskmaster can catch bullets, I'm not sure projectile attacks will work all that well against him.

    Perfect accuracy doesn't mean bullseye doesn't miss. He just always hits what he aims at- if it stands still. It doesn't mean Taskmaster can't dodge or use an energy projection (cap's shield) to block it.

    I think that with the enhanced reflexes and moves of most of Marvel's acrobatic characters, TM stands a good chance of fighting off the initial assault. On the other hand, I don't think Bullseye could dodge as well, and would be hit by anything TM threw at him. I mean, he might not be a "perfect shot holy crap he just threw a piece of straw through that guy's brain", but he's extremely competent with a pistol.

    Taskmaster would have a good chance of winning if they didn't start right next to each other. Taskmaster is professional. Bullseye is a psychopath. Bullseye would probably be able to overwhelm Taskmaster in a face-to-face brawl by just filling the air with projectiles, but I'm pretty sure Taskmaster would get the element of suprise. With TM's abilities, thats all it would take.

    Its all about who gets the first good shot in. TM would probably be the one to get the element of suprise, he can go double-speed for a short time, and he can catch atleast one bullet before another gets through. With all of those things working in his favor, I think he can get the first headshot in.

    Yeah, and Taskmaster can switch between the fighting styles. The only problem is Bullseye can take more damage than Taskmaster, what with the super spine and all. Throwing a card is different from throwing a ball, if Bullseye keeps picking up random stuff and tossing it he'd eventually connect he'd just have to be lucky enough to have the right thing hit. I don't think Bullseye's smart or stable enough to take advantage of it though.

    For some reason I keep imagining them throwing weapons like in SF and them canceling each other out.

    It will be the fight of the century, but Taskmaster should win in the end. Bullseye's unbreakable spine won't matter if Taskmaster shoots him in the forehead, or shoots him in the wrists to keep him from throwing shit, or puts the energy claw through his chest or a million other things.

    Not to say Bullseye is not an amazing fighter, but Taskmaster has him beat.

    Wrong. They are both professionals, Bullseye just chooses not to control his chaos. With that in mind, don't give this to Taskmaster so easily, Bullseye with a box of thumbtacks is like lining up Tasky in front of a machine gun. Hell, Bullseye can kill you with a drop of water from hundreds of yards away. Absolutely anything is a deadly weapon in his hands. Problem is Taskmaster is essentially every hero and villian he has ever encountered since he can mimic them.

    Let's not forget Bullseye has an adamantium spine with random bones reinforced with the stuff so not only is he durable but he can be just as acrobatic as Taskmaster. Both Bullseye and Taskmaster have a wealth of knowledge about one another and if I recall correctly Taskmaster is capable of mimicking Bullseye's aim although he may not have the same strength and natural gift for predicting how to make a penny ricochet through a crowded mall and into a persons mouth.

    So although Taskmaster can catch anything Bullseye throws at him, he can't catch what he can't see. Then. . .Bullseye can't kill what he can't hit.

    Oh my...I may find myself unable to vote on this one.

    The way they explain it is that his spine is able to exceed the limits of natural flexibility and because of that he is more flexible all together. It has something to do with not being able to fracture or something so he can pull off unique contortions.

    Taskmaster doesn't have to catch anythong Bullseye throws at him, he can deflect it with Captain America's shield whilst webbing up Bullseye and shooting him with guns, in mid-air.

    Taskmaster is made of magical death things that can pretty much beat the Avengers even though Taskmaster is physically a normal human.

    Taskmaster has dealt with Arcade before, or at least he knows him, so he probably has a rough idea of Murderworld's most basic schematics, if only because he glanced at them once when doing research, so he knows what to expect in a rough sense and how to prepare himself mentally.

    Taskmaster, being very familiar with Bullseye indeed will constantly keep his guard up, severely reducing Bullseye's chances of finding him first. However, Bullseye is a professional also and not stupid, so most likely Bullseye and Taskmaster will find each other at the same time, at which point AWESOME BATTLES WITH POWER LEVELS NEVER BEFORE WITNESSED commence.

    Bullseye ricochets a couple of thumbtacks off various angles off the walls while shooting at Taskmaster with a gun and also leaping in the air and doing maybe a backflip to confuse Taskmaster. Taskmaster, however, will dodge the thumbtacks with a bit of Spider-Man's acrobatics, and deflects the bullets with Captain America's shield while shooting at Bullseye with either Spider-Man's webbing or some fancy gun moves he saw in some Chow Yun Fat movies.

    Bullseye is hit, but his reinforced skeleton absorbs most of the damages, and he is still good to go. He promptly shoots at Taskmaster with with pistols. Or this si what he would do if it weren't for the fact that immediately after Bullseye emptied his first clip at Taskmaster, Tasky threw his Captain America shield, bouncing it off the walls and forcing Bullseye to dodge that first, allowing Taskmaster to disarm Bullseye quite literally with a burst of super-speed and a few swipes from his katana.

    Bullseye, down a few fingers on, let's say his left arm, uses his roght arm to flick his own fingers at Taskmaster, who narrowly avoids a gruesome death. This allows Bullseye just enough time to take out another projectile, let's say a knife, it doesn't matter, and throw it at Taskmaster!

    GASP!

    With a burst of superspeed and a feat of agility and coordination never before thought possible by normal humans, Taskmaster has caught the knife! Though his hand is badly cut, Taskmaster leaps over a ever so slightly stunned Bullseye and kicks the posychotic hitman in the back of the head, stunning him. Finally presented with an opening large enough to make his final move, Taskmaster once again duplicates Captain America's shield, and flings it at Bullseye with all his might, hitting him directly in the neck between two vertebrae (which Taskmaster knows how to do thanks to his reading and remembering all of Gray's Anatomy because he was bored one day), severing Bullseye's spinal cord despite his reinforced spine, stopping the hitman's heart and killing him.

    Too bad for Bullseye that he didn't have adamantium ligaments.


    Alternately, Taskmaster bounces the shield off the wall and hits Bullseye in his carotid artery.



    This is just a thought, and I think it's a fairly likely scenario.

    I think it really comes down to TM getting the drop on Bullseye. Bullseye is probably the most skilled (non-superhuman) offensive combatant in the marvel universe. When it comes to pure offense, there aren't many who can beat him. I don't even think taskmaster could.

    Taskmaster has his own game, though. He'll come at bullseye with more tactics, approach with the silent, weightless steps of a ninja, and put bullseye down. Even if bullseye avoids the first shot and retaliates, TM could go double speed and catch a projectile or MAYBE 2 projectiles before one actually hits him. In that time he could let loose with atleast half a clip on Bullseye.

    I'm assuming in all of this that TM gets the drop on bullseye, but considering their skillsets, that seems like a pretty fair assumption.

    Taskmaster is skilled enough to actually fight the Avengers to a standstill by himself, despite the fact that he is physically completely human. I don't think your assertion of Bullseye being the most skilled non-powered fighter is correct, seeing as Taskmaster posesses the skills of hundreds of people he must have fought or seen fight, not to mention a thousand encyclopaedias and other books of knowledge. I'm guessing here, but Taskmaster is a monstrously skilled individual.

    Bullseye is, in terms of hand-to-hand fighting, not even close to being in the top fifty of the Marvel universe, I'd say. He is able to turn anything he can hold into a deadly projectile, true, but even that would not put him above Taskmaster's level of skill and sheer dangerousness.

    If they started within visual range of each other and at a moderate distance, I think Bullseye would win over Taskmaster for sure. Taskmaster is one skilled mofo, but he gets shot/injured by normal civilians at times. Someone like bullseye would tear him apart at a distance in a straight up brawl.

    I DO believe that bullseye is in the top-ten of non-powered individuals at offensive combat. Sure, there are tons that win in a hand-to-hand defensive game, but bullseye can let loose with a WALL of flying pointy objects.

    I'm giving my vote to TM based on the fact that I think he's sneakier, and wouldn't let this turn into a face-to-face brawl. I don't think he'd win in a prolonged face-to-face confrontation, though. Sure, TM brawls with avengers, but Bullseye goes straight for killshots. Besides, all of those avengers brawls were extensively planned by TM in advance, so they aren't really representative of his pure fighting power.

    TM has the moves of spiderman... but TM has said it himself... being able to move like spiderman does NOT make you spiderman.

    TM doesn't have any kind of spidersense or enhanced senses like Spider-man or Daredevil. In fact, he gets shot by normal civilians on 2 seperate occasions throughout his 4 part mini-series. If shots are getting through, it means there ARE gaps in his defense. There's no way he could defend himself against bullseye's perfect accuracy for long.

    Like I said before, I'd STILL give this fight to TM based on his abilities outside of plain old face-to-face combat. TM has a much better chance of catching Bullseye by suprise, imo.

    True, but Taskmaster CAN pretty much percieve, match and analyze an opponent's movements in real time.

    Actually, after careful consideration with Toji, I now believe that this will end in a double KO, though Taskmaster would survive for about a second longer.

    While I agree with SpectreX's (initial) appraisal of the TM/ Bullseye fight, I see it playing out a little differently. The true thrill of this combat won't be a knock-down, drag-out slugfest, but a slow, nerve-wracking game of hunter vs. hunter, with the prize for second place being an unmarked grave in the potter's field, and the first prize being...

    An unmarked grave in the potter's field, most likely (lest we forget, only one lucky screw actually gets to walk away from this tournament).

    In my mind, TM holds several solid advantages, the biggest being his truely mind-boggling array of skills, with the "bottomless gauntlet o' death" pulling a close second. The only thing that Bullseye has that can really pooch the deal is the adamantium; if TM's bullet goes into a vertebre instead of between them, violent conflict will ensue. Of course, it will be violent conflict against an inexhaustable well of firepower and suprises.

    Oh, and by the way, Shiva for the win. Because **** Gentleman Ghost, that's why.

Of course, it will be violent conflict against an inexhaustable well of firepower and suprises.

    Oh, and by the way, Shiva for the win. Because **** Gentleman Ghost, that's why.

    [EDIT]: Has Lady Shiva's... um... status... ever been expressly stated? I'm pretty sure she isn't related to the Crown, but there is that other hitch...

    For some reason I'm inclined to doubt Lady Shiva is a virgin.
