So, Taskmaster: Unthinkable is full of action and funny moments and awesome fights and the Secret Avengers are in it and even Deadpool's mentioned once but the overall story is pretty gripping. It's actually a very sad, touching story by the end of the book and one that, to me, brings the Taskmaster into a whole new light. He's not just some copycat but he has a "power" and there's consequences to having that power. A consequence that most superheroes wouldn't be able to deal with. The art was fantastic and the writing was very well done. I really enjoyed the read and only hoped it could've been longer.
In this comic, we find out that despite his amazing ability to learn fighting styles, Taskmaster has forgotten his past. His new memories, somehow erase his past memories. Because he is in mortal danger (a one billion bounty on his head), Taskmaster must find his past. We get to experience his adventures figuring out his past. We have funny moments, unusual villains and big "Marvel" surprises along the way.
I gave this book a chance because it is written by Fred Van Lente, an author I've immensely enjoyed when he writes Spider-man. I am glad I did, the comic had very funny moments ("Don of the dead") and it was an interesting story on its own right. I recommend giving this book a shot.
It was writer Fred Van Lente, artist Jefté Palo, and colour artist Jean-François Beaulieu who rose up to the challenge that is creating an origin story for Taskmaster, fully succeeding in a comic which is absolutely fascinating and an overall great read. Taskmaster: Unthinkable follows the comic’s namesake as he faces a global organisation with every terrorist organisation and criminal cartel affiliated to it. The problem? There is a rumour that Taskmaster has turned a traitor and now works for Captain America, and a billion-dollar bounty has been put on his head. Resulting in every group of costumed fanatics he has ever worked for and trained being out for his blood.
The catch? Because of Taskmaster’s photographic reflexes take up so much of his memory he has no memory of his true identity or personal life. He can’t hold onto either the names or faces of his friends and family, let alone past missions and actions. To keep track of it all he’s created a massive memory palace, a mental construct that links specific memories to locations or sensory stimuli. What he doesn’t know will most certainly kill him, and he must then find the leaders of the organisation to prove his innocence.Read more ›

a nice look at taskmaster's life and how his brain works along with why he does what he doesPublished 3 months ago by Jarred Blackburn
This is quick, the characters are great, it's fun to read and has a solid ending that fits the story. What else do you want from a standalone like this?Published on May 23, 2013 by Andy
I learned about Taskmaster through a video game (Marvel Vs Capcom) and I had to learn more about him. This book explains how Taskmaster got his powers and is basically his origins. Read morePublished on October 2, 2012 by Da Ron's space
