Hi Everyone,

"Taskmaster has the extraordinary ability to perfectly replicate any physical performance he has ever seen. He watched a professional football game? Now he can throw like a star quarterback. He saw Captain America on the news? Now he can mimic his combat style flawlessly.

In Marvel Puzzle Quest, Taskmaster spends his time carefully observing other characters and learning how to use their powers. Explore Taskmaster's Power Details page to choose which powers he should use in battle."

Check out the brand new 4-Star Taskmaster, and find out how you can recruit him onto your team!
