ITT "oh yeah that happened"
>>125756559I guess it keeps him from killing people with them? Cauterization is important. still stupid
>>125756570He's never used it since.
>>125756559Didn't this have some shoop'd in dialog that was cringe as hell?
>>125756559Bub bub bub bub bub bub bub
>>125756578This was actually cool, at least the energy powers part.
>>125756578This one has a small number of people who remember just because of the one scene where Blue punches out an angel.
>>125756559Wolverine has been the victim of this more than once.
>>125756570Actually thats a pretty good way to make him pg 13 and child consumable.
>>125756559Anything involving Space Phantom and/or Immortus.Also there have been a lot of weird goings ons involving bearers of the title Madame Hydra, before, during, and after they were called that. Such as:>Watching Steve Rogers trip on his cape when he first became Nomad>Thinking she was Spider Woman’s mom>shooting other women who’ve been called Madame Hydra dead>married Wolverine>married Nick Fury>stripped a guy she just killed so she could wear his costume>turned Captain America evil>formed a secret organization with another former Madame Hydra and some other people and then arranging for Norman Osborn to be the guy running Ravencroft after it was reopened by Wilson Fisk.>Was under another five Madame Hydras we never got to meet>pointed out how trying to kill the Black Widow is a dumb idea that’s more likely to get you killedMost of these are just about the same one, but hey, I still mentioned all of them at least once.And she was involved in the Space Phantom shenanigans too, so there’s that.
>>125756788He was featured a lot in Morrison's JLA so more people should remember it.
>>125756559Remember that time Diamond Tits house a fragment of the Sentry's Void inside her head?
>>125756578I'm too lazy to look it up, when/how did the red one show up? I know the blue form is related to the sun temporarily dying and him losing his powers, but what made the red one, and what can he do?
>>125757084Black Widow being a Taskmaster tier threat will never not be dumb.
>>125756559It's too bad Marvel's a bunch of cowards. Otherwise we could have Jean getting knocked up by Cyclops and Wolverine at the same time, resulting in a kid with red hot laser claws.
>>125758146I don't think that's necessarily a dumb thing. Tasky's shtick is both the skill copying and fighting smart, but he's still a normal human physically. Taskmaster should have the advantage, but a skilled and smart opponent should also be able to keep up with him.
>>125757095>>125756788 I remember being a kid and having one of the big ass dc character encylopedia and always thinking that angel looked weird.
>>125758146Well, Tasky is not her tier anymore...
>>125756559does he still have this power?
>>125757148It's locked away in scotts mind and has been forgotten about.Scott's has been host to the void fragment, apocalypse and the Phoenix and it has all been forgotten about.
>>125759270Between the Taskmaster mini and the Black Widow ongoing they've really been bumping up Natasha as if she's the most dangerous woman on the planet. Maybe she warrants it but it was weird seeing a group brainwashing her and giving her a happy suburban life because they were afraid of her and didn't even want to kill her. And Taskmaster is afraid of BW and yet he's willing to get his face pulverized by Hyperion.
>>125756559Thor One-shotting Galactus
>>125760851>jobs to cates's oc>begs for thor to help him after thor wailed on him>constantly belittled>revealed to be a pawn for cates's oc>gets killed by thorI'm used to Galactus being a jobber but not a weak bitch.
>>125760917At this point, I would rather him staying dead so he wouldn't get shat on again and again
>>125756559Just his claws got hot? Not the adamantium on his bones?
>>125761003That fucking art lmao
>>125756578Im still in awe because Morrison made it work in JLA
That PAD OC from 2019 that was introduced through crossovers with the F4, silver surfer, and gotg and never appeared again.
>>125756559"Oh yeah that happened" the event. From the event itself to everything that tied into it.
>>125762447Does Kaine still have those or is all that Other stuff gone from him as well?
>>125762548The Other moved to another Peter, that alt one who is Spider girl's dad
>>125762568Damn, what a whore.
>>125762621Nah, Venom is still Marvel's seat holder of the Slut Supreme
>>125756559what is this? he has the ability to make his claws go hot or something?
>>125756559Holy shit, I completely forgot about this too. What even was the in story reason for such a retarded power? He randomly had it, and it's not been mentioned since, thank god.
>>125756570>>125756921I feel like inflecting horrible burns would actually make it way fucking worse but hey.
>>125762800Venom's had a shit ton of hosts, pretty self explanatory.
>>125762800Venom bonds with literally everyone in the universe
>>125762226still waiting for him to come back lmao, i enjoyed that mini
>>125760659to be fair that Scott has be dead for a looooong time.
>>125756559What happened there? Does the rest of the metal squeleton also get hot? Is he being cooked from the inside?
>>125763485presumably but he heals forever so it's nbd
>>125763485Only the claws get hot once they pop out. That's it. No reason why. It just happened and then it stopped happening.
There are way too many horrible pairings in the big 2 to keep count.
>>125763777This has been tried time and again because of AoA
>>125763769Marvel is on a permanent struggle on either making the Sentry more powerful than anyone or a jobber to whatever new for they create for a new event.
>>125757842Basically, Hank Henshaw returned and attempted to kill Electric Supes with a machine that wound up splitting him in two instead. Red has the same exact powers as Blue, the only difference being that Red has a much more brash personality similar to Kon-El.
>>125759270Wait. Is this Taskmaster's book? Did he get jobbed in his own book?
>>125760851Galactus looks emaciated as fuck here though.
>>125756589Cause it’s retarded
>>125758434Oh fuck, you just made me remember how awesome skub is, gotta go get me some,
Mysterio wearing the Venom symbiote before Brock.
>>125761003That’s literally how Surfer got his body back. He became intangible for like a year before that
>>125763875>>125763622>>125762273these were awful
>>125765920>literally pulls a *teleports behind you* "nothing personal.... kid"
>>125762709>>125762754Pretty much. I'm pretty sure there wasn't any reason other than "because it looks cool to the writer"
>>125756774It's one of those silly jokes that still make you laugh.
>>125765752Sadly but only to Widow, everyone else he fights he actually beats (including Hyperion but he got his ass thrashed hard so it was a negligible win). Even then I don't think he was actively trying to kill her since the fight was only like 2 pages
>>125765920I will always find it funny how Olivetti ignored like half of the design details just made Black Bolt with upside down fork. When suppose to look like earth X Black Bolt but even further down the zombie cyborg path.
>>125763702I get the idea but I'm pretty sure Hulk's Hulk is just Bruce Banner - you know, "everything the Hulk isn't"
This shit got ignored so hard that Gamora is on a team with two people that wanted to kill her over this and none of them have mentioned it.
>>125760851And then he jobs to Hulk...
The author's stopping the plot to give us some "Bro religion is cringe bro" centrist bullshit.
>>125759285Probably not, with Krakoan resurrections. Same goes for the Cyclops stuff.
>>125761025Does it matter? His insides might burn, but he heals.
>>125762447They should do an AU Wolverine who has the hot claws AND the Other spider powers.
>>125763963>because of AoAAoA did it because of the Magneto/Rogue Savage Land stuff from Jim Lee era X-Men.
>>125762273The only real things of consequence the event had was introducing Silk, making Angela Thor's sister, and getting rid of white Nick Fury.
>>125762273I have to remember that shit all the time because I think of ways they could use Fury, then recall that he's some stupid Watcher bitch now.
>>125762273Nick Fury going around with giant guns is still really stupid.
>>125770234You're in luck, Uatu's back and Nick's free to go. Nick's like "I killed you" and Uatu's like "oh cool."
>>125763702so who is the hulk's hulk's hulk?
>>125756559I hope this will be in the Insomniac game.
>>125759229With what? Their skills? Their techniques? Those things Taskmaster can copy instantly, because that's his schtick? Those things?
>>125763702That doesn't make any sense
>>125759270Tasky is such a sad bastard. He was supposed to be this Deathstroke tier team killer and he was...for a whilenow he mostly just exists to job to Deadpool or Black Widow or....fukkin anyone honestly
>>125761156Morrison's a god for his ability to just work in all the retarded editorial mandates without ever skipping a beat. Superman's a blue lightning man? no problem. Diana's a god and now her mom is Wonder Woman? ok cool. Superman's back to normal? thank godnever once did that shit upset the pacing of his stories
>>125766023No that was in King in Black.
>>125765446it's because half the writer's want to make him stronger than Superman and the other half want to show that "Superman" would lose against whoever
>>125759270>>125760763Whats so contrived about it is how they have to defeat her in order to prove that she's worth defeating.pic related, she gets taken out so easily, but we're expected to believe she's a match for the world-class supervillains
>>125768431half of everything that happens in comics only happens because someone thought it would look cool
>>125769905it's not a joke but this still applies
>>125771612Against the likes of Hawkeye and Black Widow where the physical gap is next to nonexistent and their gear is relatively evenly matched? Sure, he'd definitely be a serious threat, but against someone with a clear stat advantage, and no distinct gear or skill disadvantage, he really shouldn't measure. Punisher? Definitely. Hawkeye? Sure. Daredevil? Maybe. Captain America? No. Spider-Man? Hell no.>>125772033Because his gimmick is stale, and everybody else had their powers fully realized or got some kind of upgrade in an attempt to keep them relevant, like Wolverine's retarded heat claws in the OP that everybody thankfully forgot about, while his powers are set in stone as a copycat and nothing else. They tried to sell that "can copy things in superspeed if he set things in fast forward," then realized that's also retarded when it's made clear that he's just a guy in a skull mask but with the not even unique ability to copy techniques. Even if Deathstroke is enhanced to justify some of his dumb jobbing bullshit, at least people will still at least call out his dumb jobbing bullshit as dumb jobbing bullshit, Taskmaster doesn't even have that luxury.
>>125769905Seething christcuck please die in a fire.
>>125768574>>125765920This is actually more so a ripoff of Black Bolt and Medusa’s son’s costume that he starts wearing in Universe X, Earth X’s sequel, going by the title of the Black Knight.
>>125769905I always get some sort of cognitive dissonance between Bill's "muh good" and his demonic alien horse face
>>125762784Actually it wouldn't. A hot blade wouldn't be as lethal
>Always used to think the god of the symbiote race was something cool and mysterious, something like a living symbiote planet, or some ancient primordial ooze, or perhaps an eldritch cosmic horror being (similar to my boy Shumagorath)>Then when the actual god of the symbiotes is introduced years later he is revealed to be a bland humanoid edgy jobber OC wearing some generic lame armor with the symbiote logo on it and some gayass sword, his design looking like a rip-off of Marvel's modern Dracula design mixed with some forgettable skull design you'd see on a cheap Hot Topic shirtNever forget how underwhelmin Knull was lol.
>>125772578Cates himself said it's suppose to be Earth X Black bolt and helm is definitely the same. The only thing it has in common with Earth X ahura is the glowing red stripes of paradise X version.
>>125772388Taskmaster's gimmick isn't stale. The issue is that Taskmaster's actual shtick is "fight smarter, not harder" and that means the writer has to put effort into making Tasky clever and competent in how he works his schemes to bridge the gap between him and more powerful foes. And since God forbid we have writers put in effort they'll instead just make him a chump. For fuck's sake they even nerfed him in that mini all those years back and still treat it as canon.
Sersi has had sex with all the straight male Eternals and Sprite went evil because nobody would bang a million year old child.
>>125772388his power always reminds me of Cassandra Cain, so i always thought it was weird that he gets delegated as jobber supreme while she's this Shiva tier, virtually unbeatable fighter
>>125772899that's why Thor just attacked him right off when they first met and why Odin called bullshit when he proved worthy of mjolnir, cuz he looks like a scary monster instead of this epic, honorable warrior
>>125776344This sort of stuff gets overhyped on /co/ by cassfags, but it doesn't actually play out like this in the comics. Batman and Nightwing have both owned Deathstroke in the past. All Cass did was steal some surveillance footage and escape with her life.
>>125756559>hot claws>not electro claws
>>125773260who came first? null of The Batman Who Keks? cuz I definitely get the same energy from them
>>125776475you gonna find me a page that says Taskmaster is the Greatest living hand-to-Hand fighter on the planet?
>>125776569Batkek, first appeared when Barbatos was still the baddest bad guy.
>>125765920Holy shit I forgot about this. Where did it go? What the end point behind this arc?
>>125777700He just left. None of the kree with him were ever seen again. Ewing still uses the imperial kree but hasn't mentioned any of the Vox stuff. Thompson made another Vox which is not the same Vox but another Vox that fused with some left over pieces of the old supremor. The original Vox is just gone.>what was the pointThere wasn't. they actually kill off a lot of inhumans. Only a few named ones died and tons of unnamed OC. Didn't have the balls to go for the nuhumans it was mostly the universal inhumans that Hickman made.
>>125756559Everyone pictured here is in 2nd grade.The thing in the bottom right is a boy.
>>125778187>Everyone pictured here is in 2nd gradeChrist I have to play JRPGs to find an age to look ratio this fucked
>>125774801It gets the point where fighting smarter can't make up for whatever gaps exist. In their last fight, Taskmaster used various weapon traps, and Captain America was poisoned with something specifically made to slow him down enough so Taskmaster can have a chance against him, and either Captain America burnt through the poison fast enough, or he just stopped giving a fuck, he turned the fight around almost immediately.If anything, Taskmaster is the most realistic take in comics of plans just fucking up because the opposition is too busted.>>125776344His power is more about being able to perfectly copy skills and techniques, which gives him a large library of moves to use against his opponents both offensively and defensively, but he's still just a guy that engages in intense exercise and there's nothing super about him aside from the photographic reflexes.
>>125756559Hotclaws peaked with this page
>>125778577it's not a diss at God you mouth breather, It's about not needing a reason to do good
>>125777660imagine wanting to rip off Batkek
>>125778517That's more an issue with how they're handling Captain America. Taskmaster has been shown capable of handling multiple Avengers at a time, and that's canon.
>>125778577"muh heathens" Yes because not needing a book to tell you your morals is now a heathen belief. I'm sure god would be thrilled by the knowledge that humans need a reason to be good instead of doing it without one
>>125778676Sorry friend, I don't speak Pagan Bullshit.
>>125778517there's nothing super about Cassandra either, her ability was taught it's not a powerI just think it's interesting that in the DC setting where power levels are off the charts she's still seen as skilled beyond skilled where as in the Marvel setting where things are (kinda) more grounded Tasky is generally seen as a jobber
>>125778550goofy marvel is best marvel
>>125763702Shit like this is why I enjoyed Axis, this had to be self-aware.
>>125778681you just speak bullshit
>>125778577Will you deus vult LARPers ever die out?
>>125757002Oh bub that's hot
>>125778658Taskmaster>Olympic-level stats>reflexes are practically instant due to the nature of his powers>carries guns, a bow and arrow, sword, shield, batons, stun darts, etc.>power is photographic reflexes, anything he sees he can instantly replicateCaptain America>Peak-level stats (realistically, low level superhuman) >reflexes are also practically instant, considering he regularly dodges bullets when he also isn't ricocheting projectiles back at his opponents>has also been noted to pick up on skills extremely quickly, being able to fight Kang using Zero-G Kung Fu despite just encountering it, and Beast noting that he can master any kind of weapon almost instantly >carries a shield, but generally doesn't need much else>ranks as one of the best fighters on Marvel Earth through sheer skill>ranked as the best strategist and tactician If anything, Taskmaster should be the one that has an uphill battle, not Cap.>>125778740I don't really follow DC stuff like that, I just assumed she's able to read the body language of people and anticipate their movements to get a head start on others and maneuver appropriately, rather than being super in any way. Taskmaster can simply observe and copy what he sees, but because he's seen others moves, he can use that knowledge to anticipate how to attack and defend with a move that can counter effectively, in theory.
>>125771612>With what? Their skills? Their techniques?Why would you list the things he's good against? Unless you purposefully are trying not to see the point. People are more than skills and techniques, and anyone can still outsmart Taksmaster.
>>125759277What so he'd still be Superman, he'd just also be really great at home decor and picking out a really killer outfit
>>125757002>AHHH LOGAN, WHY'D YOU GIVE ME THE OLD HOT CLAWS?
>>125779848you pretty much nailed it, she can read body language to an insane degree, from something as simple as breathing and muscle twitches she can she every movement your body is preparing to go through. In the comics they often say that she knows what her opponents are going to do before they do it, and in some cases before they even consciously know they are going to do it
>>125779633Bub bub bub
>>125758402Or claw eyes
>>125780211I... I am 100% certain I've seen this picture drawn by a drawfag on /co/, some time in 2007/2008.Don't make me go looking.
>>125780105That qualifies under non-superpowered, just very skilled, I guess. Unlike Taskmaster, though, I'm guessing they don't have any illusions that she can fight against superpowered opponents that are dead set on hurting her, and making it somewhat believable that she can't take them on just because she knows their next move, which has always been my issue with Taskmaster and using that as an excuse to humiliate middle-weights and heavy-weights.
>>125772938Actually you're a literal retard if you think a red hot blade is less dangerous than a room temperature one.Don't go outside kid, someone like would probably walk right in front of a speeding care because "it can't be dangerous there are crosswalk lines!"Fucking idiot.
>>125780330Regardless of what anyone thinks of how effective a hot blade would be versus a cold one, the whole idea was fucking retarded and came completely out of left field for no good reason. At this point they're just tacking whatever the fuck popped into their head that morning while on the toilet on to some characters like Superman powers.
It's one I like very much, but still qualifies
>>125780248Ive seen cyclops with claw eye for sure
>>125758146Isn't she a super soldier?
>>125780348Yet they still make a lot more money than you. Curious.
>>125778681>Sorry friend, I don't speak Pagan Bullshit.Why aren't you speaking Latin instead of English then?
>>125770161gave us deadpools daughter though
>>125780601This is great.
>>125778652>imagine wanting to rip off BatkekDC was making a lot of money off him. That's the reason to rip him off right there.
>>125779524They're only gonna get worse in the near future
>>125756559Bruce Wayne has a crazy brother. OR DOES HE?!?!??!?!
>>125761003Was this Cates?
>>125763875I remember him because the New Suicide Squad was actually a promising book that was cut off before any of its setups paid off.
>>125773260It's actually an Elric of Melniboné ripoff.
>>125773260Why do all of the symbiotes look like spider-man and have spider symbols? Made sense for Venom and their maybe his offspring if you want to stretch it. The whole race looking like that is retarded and makes it weird that Peter didn't look like how the Symbiotes usually look when he wore it
>>125756570>>125762784>>125772938>Cauterizationthe retards that think a hot blade like that would successfully cauterize anything have absolutely no idea what Cauterization is or how it's performed
>>125780507There was a weird period where Flash Thompson briefly joined the GotG and was in space for a while. He went from tacticool Agent Venom to a weird halfway normal Venom to this, which a lot of people criticized and called a "Ben 10 alien." It was also another symbiote retcon that was retconned away soon after, before that retcon was retconned with Cates' King in Black shit.
>>125757002Not enough bub.
>>125759270>>125760763Isn't Natasha supposed to be on the Soviet version of the super solider serum? How does Taskmaster fair against Cap?
>>125780634Whores that shake their ass on the internet make more money than firefighters and nurses, so what?
>>125783527>Isn't Natasha supposed to be on the Soviet version of the super solider serum?Supposed to be, but it's obviously not good enough since she's not nearly as impressive as Cap.>How does Taskmaster fair against Cap?It used to be that he was able to stalemate him or hang with him long enough, Cap beats him pretty handily nowadays.
>>125783527Soviet version of the Infinity formula. Stops aging, but that's it.
>>125756559was it ever explained? I remember him being resurrected with zero explanation and then having hot claws all of sudden He later became Phoenix in Aaaron Thor run, so this likely was the reason
>>125780601Its great fun, but makes no sense in context.I think this is a writer who wrote it as a metacommentary on marvel
>>125780316yea they have her lose to Artemis almost immediately because even a freak of nature, gods gift to martial arts is still only human and it just isn't enough to compete with someone on Wonder Woman's level
>>125769905>Thor gets degraded from being a character, to a title, to a costume even a space dinosaur can wear>people think this is good writing
>Red Skull + Onslaught>Sounds cool on paper, right?>...right?
When they gave Cable technopath powers in Cable & Deadpool in the mid 2000s. Then had to throw the whole thing out because X-editorial wanted Cable for the whole Hope/Messiah Complex story-line they cooked up.
>>125787946Bill was never called Thor, he just had the powers of Thor.
>>125787946Bill being worthy of the hammer was a massive thing back in the day, don't compare it to all the modern garbage
>>125776234considering the number of pedophiles and desperate 30 somethings out there I find this concept of a million years without sex because of this form a bit of a reach.
>>125756559Why didn't they just give this to x23?
>>125778550Lol based jews
>>125788900Fabian Nicieza was a bit salty about it as he had built up this huge arc for Cable over the series and stuck in some meta commentary on the sly.
>>125788797so.. how did they remove Xaxier's brain that he somehow fused to his own?
>>125787946fucking children these days don't know shit about Thor, fukkin MCU kids have no idea who Beta-Ray Bill iswhy does this make me so mad?
>>125789489You know I still haven't figured that out. Secret Wars happened almost immediately after. Cap and Tony both killed each other right at he end of AXIS and the universe was re-written by God Doom. I'd always assumed they used Secret War to hand wave the whole thing away, like they did with Superior Iron Man
>>125779333Don't wanna read more shonen shit. Can someone explain this supposed asspull for me?
>>125789183The problem is being admitted in a school without documents.
>>125789489Avengers Unity Squad found him and gave him brain surgery. Or just neutralized the telepath part of his brain, I can't remember. Then HydraCap threw him off a cliff and assumed control
>>125789939Clown with the power to control rubber that is also gum used gumrubber to restart his heart. It's not even close to the largest asspull in HiatusXHiatus but it's very fun to meme
There span of years were Marvel just said what if we combined these things to make a "new" thing.
Professor x in fantomexs bodyWraith from annihilation conquest Hawkeye as goliath Emma frost having diamond powers is because Morrison couldn't use colussus
>>125791162And then a whole event
>>125787842YOU FOUND IT. Also I wasn't looking. Thank you.
>>125791511lol I already had it saved
>>125791162I always thought that Norman co-opting a symbiote off of Venom or Carnage or one of their offshoots to tear off Spider-Man's ass was a no-brainer. Surprised it hadn't happened sooner.
Did I accidentally a Taskmaster argument?
Someone give me the short versions of what happend here in OP pic, i never dived into it
>>125791162Aaron is still on that
>>125792789Wolverine died.Then he came back to life with more amnesiaAnd his claws could get hot, and the explanation for that has something to do with his healing factor, but I can't remember the exact details.I don't know if it's still a thing he can do or not, and I don't really know what happened in the story arc where he first got them, aside from that it happened after he died (for real!) and, like I said, he had more amnesia. Not sure if all of that got fixed or not, but I'm pretty sure this happened before the whole Krakoa thing where every mutant is invited.
>>125791232I only remember this solely because I still see the giant Iron Hammer funkopop shelf warming at my local Walmart.
>>125778577>blessed digitsModest Sunday-School Starfire approves
>>125763875He had a good death in suicide squad
>>125791232I don't know about any of the others, but magitech sledgehammer warrior is an awesome goddamn concept. Just put a rocket on one end of it and it's perfect.
