Taskmaster No.1 by AlexGarner Taskmaster No.1 by AlexGarner
Taskmaster #1. Cover to the upcoming mini-series. Marvel used the wrong file for solicitations so here is the slightly revised version. This was a rush job with only one day to paint it so it's the fastest cover I've ever done. Probably took around 16 hours.

This is also one of my favorite characters from when I was reading comics as a kid. His only powers, if you can call them powers, are his photographic reflexes. That is, he can mimic the moves of anyone after just seeing them perform it one time. So he basically can do every fighting style in the Marvelverse from Captain America to Hawkeye to Daredevil, etc..


TASKMASTER #1 (of 4)
Written by FRED VAN LENTE
Penciled by JEFTE PAOLO
Cover by ALEX GARNER
The fan-favorite anti-hero from AVENGERS: INITIATIVE explodes into his own mini-series! Taskmaster has trained hench-thugs for every terrorist organization and criminal cartel in the Marvel Universe. So when the rumor starts that he's turned traitor and now works for STEVE ROGERS, a billion-dollar bounty is put on his head, and every cadre of costumed fanatics -- A.I.M., Hydra, Ultimatum, the Sons of the Serpent, everyone -- looks to collect. Now Taskmaster has to fight hordes upon hordes of his psychopathic students while at the same time figuring out who framed him -- which requires him figuring out who he really is! That's right, the man with the photographic reflexes has no memory of his true identity -- and you'll learn the unexpected truth along with him! The action-packed SECRET ORIGIN of Taskmaster begins here, courtesy of New York Times bestselling writer Fred Van Lente (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, INCREDIBLE HERCULES, MARVEL ZOMBIES) and acclaimed artist Jefte Paolo (DOCTOR VOODOO)!

For some reason, when I look at Taskmaster, I don't see an evil villain...

In fact, he'll always be a full fledged hero to me. At least in his own right. ;u;

Taskmaster does look like Skeletor, but he's really pretty badass.

Some people do their best work under pressure, I think your Taskmaster is phenomenal!
