HUNDRED WORD HIT #51 - TASKMASTER #2
Taskmaster #2 by Jed McKay & Alessandro Vitti
Taskmaster, now in the employ of Nick Fury, has to take down one of Nick’s own in Shield Agent Phil Coulson to obtain his kinetic signature. Easy? Not when Coulson, now Director of Squadron Supreme can call on a powerhouse like Hyperion for back up!
McKay and Vitti deliver a fantastic man vs superman match up which has echoes of the classic Batman & Superman smackdowns for the distinguished competition. McKay has the reader willing Taskmaster to succeed and pull a ‘Kryptonian’ moment to bring down Hyperion which he duly does but not before taking a savage beating. Brilliant stuff. BRAVO!
