Sorry, hero, but whatever I can't duplicate, I can anticipate! And since I've studied most every super-type around, I think you'd be smart to throw in the towel!

Quotes

Quote1 That gig -- the Villain Schools -- I had to get out of it. Think about it. All my clients were guys who needed training. It was always, "C'mon, Tasky, front me the training. I'll make good after my first job. I'm gonna be huge, man. You just gotta teach me that badass Punisher move I saw on Entertainment Tonight." And the heroes, swinging in to bust up the free enterprise, I'm engaged in. And every time they do? I gotta find a new abandoned warehouse or a new abandoned drilling platform or, would it had never been so, a new circus to take over. Overhead? You don't know what overhead is until you've see what a guy gets paid to scoop up elephant %?$#. Quote2
--Taskmaster
Quote1 Personally, I think we've done enough of the beating and torture and I'm ready to move straight to the beheading. Quote2
--Taskmaster
Quote1 I gotta say. Fighting you? Want to talk about a fighting style I could have lived a lifetime without memorizing? It's yours. Never met a punch you wouldn't rather take than dodge, have you? Quote2
--Taskmaster
Quote1 The things I do for friends I can't stand... Quote2
