    Whatever. Someone post the scan of (edit:er... Taskmaster) mocking the daughter of Batroc and whoever.

    Edit: I said Deadpool instead of Tasky as a test. Yes... a test.
    I could not believe when I found out your fathers were heterosexual.

    Here's a hint ladies, check to see if your opponent is on a ledge before you engage.

    Batroc, probably the only marvel person to be defeated by a cheap hotel lamp.

    And, well, gravity.

    Two appearances by Batroc in as many weeks. I was completely unaware of him before last week.


    Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe #1 was pretty good. It has more than a couple MOTW worthy moments.

    A couple other worthwhile books are Think Tank and Hypernaturals, FYI.

    Dude, Batroc is great. Here, read this: http://www.comicsalliance.com/2012/02/29/batroc-leaper-comics/

    I like Gillen's idea that obviously he speaks perfect English, he just likes having an accent. And while it's a bit overly meta, I like the idea that he knows he's the not-lethal stopgap for superheroes, rather than an actual threat. Because obviously if he was a legitimate threat Captain America would be dead. And at least if he's just fist-fighting people, it's likely he won't get shot or ray-blasted or whatever.

    And for real:

    He's just so fucking sanguine!

    Take a moment to donate what you can to the International Rescue Committee, the National Immigration Law Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the American Civil Liberties Union. There has never been a more urgent moment to do so.

    That last panel is perfect.

    And I really love Udon's Taskmaster's outfit. Wished it stuck.

    The sad/funny thing is it wasn't due to popularity but rather a clerical error. After UDON did their series with that costume there was a mix up and the wrong costume character files were sent to the next guys on whatever project was next...which was the old pirate costume, from there it stuck for 'continuity sake'. Can't recall which artists my friend was talking to when he asked about this (At the Toronto comic-con a few years back). sign :(

    Ugh, that is the worst reason for a bad costume to stick.

    I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not as eager to dismiss continuity as a lot of people.

    But the pirate costume is awful.
