The Quintessential Taskmaster

Our Reader's Choice poll is complete and the HeroClix Community has spoken -- today we bring you the Quintessential Taskmaster. As always, polls matter here at HeroClix World!

The key feature of any Taskmaster is his Photographic Reflexes, and Eric Schaen's take is a little different than what we've seen in the past. The Quintessential Taskmaster can use these Reflexes to increase his attack or defense seemingly at will. Of course, he excellent natural values will keep him viable for the entire game, but with Photographic Reflexes he can emulate any tentpole your opponent throws his way.

Dial be Eric Schaen (continued below)



The Quintessential Taskmaster
Photographic Reflexes aside, The Quintessential Taskmaster is quite potent with just his natural abilities. He can move and attack with most of his dial thanks to Charge and Running Shot, and early Toughness helps. Offensively he's also not to be taken lightly thanks to his Avengers Arsenal -- with that power he can use Flurry or Blades/Claws/Fangs  (not to mention some Precision Strike later in the dial)

Speaking of Avengers Arsenal, if you need a little more oomph, he can use that power to give himself Energy Shield/Deflection, essentially bringing his defense to 19! And remember, ES/D is a modify power. So you could use Photographic Reflexes to replace his defense with someone else's [17], which gives him an effective 18... then activate ES/D to give himself an effective 20 defense against ranged attacks!

So, would you play The Quintessential Taskmaster?

So the hawkeye gives him EE instead of RCE? i don't agree with that not for the points but other than that it's good.

Very nice comic accurate dial. Stealing stats us so much better for photographic reflexes than stealing powers. Very playable, potentially potent, but will collapse and run against a top tier opponent. Now THAT'S Taskmaster!

My only improvement suggestion would be more enhancement and empower to represent his training others but that would bump his cost too high unless you also dropped a click of health. Well done Eric, yet another dial better than the official ones!

2nd clix outwit then 3 clix of cc expert then more outwit would be perfect.

I'd play that with even thinking twice. 100 point AAoU Cap 'Merica opening 12 attack. I win. 62 points to spare for prob and or support.

I would play it.

So he could take aou movie hulks starting 13 printed attack and then add 1 to it?

Pair with a friendly Galactus to give him a 22 defense, 17 attack, or a 9 damage.

Meh. The one from Chaos War is better

Tons of abilities, but watch out: one wallop from a big gun figure and he's on his lips. Paired with an item that either heals or avoids damage and you have a very formidable piece.
