    C is gonna come down to this:
    Is Grundy strong enough to bust Red's crazy soviet super metal(that is lamer than adamantium)?

    And is Grundy even ALIVE in the first place? I keep thinking he's a zombie.

    Grundy's a fucking wood zombie. That's double undrainable.

    Taskmaster will end up taking Deathstroke by surprise by pulling a move that Deathstroke thinks only he can do. And Taskmaster can catch a fucking bullet, so that's pretty rad.

    Blob ends up choking on a rubber-band ball.

    Deathstoke will take taskmaster simply because he knows the kooky shit in the Batcave; you can't imitate the Batmobile ramming you in the face.

    according to wikipedia he can sustain injury and die like a human being, although it's much harder to kill him and he will more than likely come back.

    What?

    And Deathstroke would get knocked unconscious trying to take the Batmobile. It's got a near-lethal security system, ya know.

    except Doom said that both competitors had full access, so the security system's not a factor.

    Oh wait, you mean Seven Soldiers? I don't think our Solomon Grundy is the same as Klarion's Grundies.


    And I guess full access would mean a powered down security system. Still, the Batmobile bit is stupid. Taskmaster can easily dodge a car, and sitting in a driver's seat just makes it harder for Deathstroke to dodge something through the windshield.

    Deathstroke will rip apart Taskmaster. Once Deathstroke realizes how TM is able to mimic his abilities he will use it to his advantage. Based on his recent appearance in Moon Knight, I don't think he has what it takes to kill Deathstroke.

    The way I sees it is that Deathstroke is basically a cooler looking Taskmaster, so he's gonna win that fight. I almost want to see Tombstone can advance just to see an eventual Grundy Tombstone fight, but that's not gonna happen. Oh, and Omega Red is proper fucked against Grundy, who's probably going to take his pants.

    But based on his appearences in his own mini-series and Agent X, he's totally awesome.

    Not that I don't love Deathstroke.

    I'm kinda torn on this match.

    How will Deathstroke realize Taskmaster can mimic any move, and how will he use it to his advantage? You're going to need to elaborate.

    And the guy who wrote Moon Knight didn't even know Taskmaster had changed his outfit or was wielding a magical A.I.M gauntlet. I wouldn't even count that appearance.

    I think Tasky could take Slade apart after a prolonged fight. I mean, the guy's studied all the best fighters of the Marvel universe, including Captain America, who fought Batman to a standstill once, can move in short bursts of superspeed, can create simple energy constructs, can catch bullets with his bare hands, and can likely apply knowledge gleaned from watching scientific bigwigs like Tony Stark and Reed Richards to Batman's numerous pieces of advanced tech lying around the Batcave. I'd say that, unless Slade can put Taskmaster down right away, Taskmaster will slowly pick up on all of Slade's moves, until Deathstroke eventually can't throw anything new at him. Given that Slade's most recent famous fight, the one from Identity Crisis, showed him as being the kind of person who extensively plans for a fight, and can't really adapt on the fly too well, I think that once his bag of tricks runs dry he'll be dead in the water.

    Plus, this version of Taskmaster doesn't wear hideous pirate boots like Slade, giving him an automatic +10 cool points.

    Guys

    Taskmaster isn't retarded

    He's not going to let Deathstroke know that he can mimic moves.

    Plus he has the advantage of fighting like just about anyone in the Marvel U. So Deathstroke isn't going to get a good read. The energy projector is going to give him the edge he needs to beat Deathstroke. (A great balanced fight though)

    Red tries to drain Grundy, fails, gets his ass handed to him.

    Tombstone edges out Grodd due to Grodd not using his pyschic rape powers.

    Bullseye beats blob because his eyes and face are vulnerable. And they're in a freaking office supply store.

    Moon Knight was awesome but it did make Taskmaster out to be a wuss.

    Based on his own series and Agent X, he is not a wuss. He is a super-badass.

    Elaborate Trap designed specifically to take out Slade.

    Flash, Zatana, Hawkman, Green Arrow and Black Canary where just winging it. You can't expect to win against Slade unless you got a damn good plan to take him out.

    And yes Green Arrow is badass. That does help.

    You obviously forget the pinhead-sized explosive designed by Ted Kord. Yes, even from beyond the grave Blue beetle can beat up the guy who stabbed the Flash. Fighting gay robots with soft and chewy centers and mohawks though? Not so much.

    D) Deathstroke - I REALLY want taskmaster to win but he always get his ass kicked by anyone with a healing factor. It sucks. I really like the taskmaster
