I appreciate Otto's priorities in sparing an arm for the coffee mug.

Supervillain or not, he is after all a scientist.

I like that he has his own Hydra coffee mug.

I'm not sure Taskmaster's photographic reflexes power would be of much use against someone who fights with way more limbs than he has.

Taskmaster's powers never made much sense outside of guys like Shang Chi. I mean people like Cap, Spider-Man, and Iron First are superhuman; he should just have slower weaker versions of their moves

He's been shown capable of moving at their speeds, but only for short bursts and it exhausts him afterwards.

I know he has. It just never made sense to me. Spider-Man is faster than anyone who isn't an outright speedster and stronger than anyone who isn't a fullon brick. Not sure how that can be copied without powers even temporarily

I can buy him copying some level of high speed, since that's his power, copying how people move.

The strength thing... force = mass x acceleration? Eh, I got nuthin'.

It shouldn't be; he shouldn't get truly superhuman. However, people in the real world have shown unexpected levels of strength when on life-and-death situations; we can assume Taskmaster's powers allow him to push his body to fight-and-flight human limits at will, when copying superhumans.

Tasky does have the prediction aspect of his powers. In a straight fight, he could probably take down Doc Ock Classic by anticipating and dodging his attacks.

That said, Otto is a devious genius who likes to have a few aces up his sleeve, and Taskmaster is vulnerable to surprises. Plus, this version has spider-powers, and is probably just too damn fast and powerful for someone with human strength and speed, even with prediction.

I'm finding it hilarious you guys are complaining about Taskmaster's ability yet have no problem when it comes to the Batfamily taking down metahuman threats.

Did I read this right? For Mexicans migrating in the US, this means freedom from tyranny?
When did Mexico become a dictatorship?

I mean, a couple times throughout it's history.

But perhaps more to the point, not all the migrants trying to cross the Mexican border into the US started in Mexico. A lot of them are, for obvious geographical reasons, but for equally obvious geographical reasons, a lot of people coming from further south in Central America come via Mexico.

plus haven't there been areas and times in Mexico where the drug cartels have been able to impose themselves with impunity
