--Tony Masters (Earth-616)
Quote1.png If we all remember our roles, I'll be able to deliver my little message and go. The gist of the message is pretty simple. I'm going to kill you. Really, reeeeally painfully. So, what say we just get started on that? Quote2.png
--Tony Masters (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I didn't let you beat me, Wade. I mean, I shoved my sword through your chest! Truth is... You're that good. You've always been that good. Which won't even get you a cup of coffee until you figure out how to be a professional... Quote2.png
--Tony Masters (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Forget bridges. Osborn's gonna throw me off Hoover Dam. Quote2.png
--Tony Masters (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I got this...memory thing. I pick up anyone's moves just by seein' 'em. That's a lotta data. More'n my brain's got room for, I guess. So I...forget things. Things that ain't about combat, about survival. People, places...I can't remember what I did last week. By Monday, I probably won't remember this conversation. I wanted ta fight you 'cause...I thought if I remembered your moves, I might remember you. Quote2.png
--Tony Masters (Earth-616)

Quote1.png I was all for it until I found out you were all for it. Get some help, Wade. Quote2.png
--Tony Masters (Earth-616)
Quote1.png When you get down to it, it’s just work. Everyone’s got to work, right? You got to eat, got to put a roof over your head…and these outfits don’t come cheap. Throw some henchmen in the mix and buddy, you can’t afford to take it easy. So you do dirty deeds for dirtier dollars. Industrial espionage, muscle work, bodyguarding… … Murder… Hell, even the lowest of the low… … Golf. Quote2.png
--Tony Masters (Earth-616)
Quote1.png You don’t work for crazy people for as long as I have without learning to feel out when you’re being played. It’s why I’ve instituted a strict No Nazisbusiness policy. A cushy job from Baron Zemo inevitably turns into The Punisher running you over with a truck. Nobody needs that kind of grief. But mark my words. Someone’s playing me. Quote2.png
--Tony Masters (Earth-616)
Quote1.png This stinks. Fury said it was my plan. And it is. I came up with it, from start to finish. But it's not, is it? Not really. This whole thing, this whole situation... It's a part of someone else's plan. And me, Fury, The Widow... We're all just playing our parts. Like suckers. And I hate being a sucker. Quote2.png
--Tony Masters (Earth-616)
Quote1.png But it's about time that they remembered who they're dealing with. Need a bastard? Call Taskmaster Quote2.png

Taskmaster
My, my, eager little beaver, ain't ya? But maybe ya wouldn't be--if ya knew about my "photographic reflexes"! 'Cause within limitations, once I see something' done, I can duplicate it exactly! An' that includes--your speed and agility!

Nice try, ugly! But not nice enou--
Conversation Tail.png

Taskmaster
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!

Spider-Man
No way Taskmaster! You can't duplicate or anticipate an airborne attack on a webbing rope!

Taskmaster
No? Then how cum--I can cut it short with a Captain America-style sling?

So you think you turned the tables, huh? Guess again. This is a little move I picked up from watching Iron Fist in action!

Conversation Tail.png
Taskmaster Vol 2 1 Solicit.jpg
Taskmaster
I've studied your fighting style too, Spider-Man, so I can second-guess your every move--and counter it with, say, a little of Daredevil's agility!

They’re symbiotes. Venom came to Earth disguised as Spider-Man’s old costume but now he lives on some bro named Eddie.

I’m crazy, not suicidal. The speed limit is the maximum  allowed speed. For larger vehicles, it’s suggested to drive below that--

Quotes

Quote1.png 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.png
--Taskmaster
Quote1.png Personally, I think we've done enough of the beating and torture and I'm ready to move straight to the beheading. Quote2.png
--Taskmaster
Quote1.png 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.png
--Taskmaster
Quote1.png The things I do for friends I can't stand... Quote2.png
