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!

    Awesome way to show off his powers like the comics. Being able to choose different fighting styles is cool.

    Correct, he is a limited character.

    To head off another question, his abilities are chosen in the abilities screens. You can scroll through all the available abilities and press "Learn" on the one you want to equip.

    Please tell me Cable won't be.  I might throw a table lol.

    I so wanted this and him to be a 5 star.

    I really hope you do a 5 star rogue with a similar power set.

    really cool! 
  • DormammuDormammu Posts: 3,378 Chairperson of the Boards
    I really dislike it when new characters are released in Strange Sights. Such an awful event to predict placement. You can go top 5 in all three subs and end up missing top 10.

    But Taskmaster looks pretty cool. But limited, eh? All right. Guess it's been a while since we've had one of those, but he sure looks a lot more effective than Devil Dino!

    This may be the hardest "best build" discussion in the history of Marvel Puzzle Quest.

    I look forward to using him in two or three years’ time!

    Seriously, one of the first characters I’ve actually been excited about all year and you go and make him limited. Thanks.
    Same here. It would of been great to use him now and not have to wait a couple of years until I can get enough covers to make him useful.

    Am I reading Strange Sights wrong? 4 days?
  • EichenEichen Posts: 176 Tile Toppler
    I've been asking for Taskmaster for 4 years.  So glad we are finally getting him.  Frustrated he's a limited character.  Why are their limited characters at all?
  • Shintok17Shintok17 Posts: 616 Critical Contributor
    Am I reading Strange Sights wrong? 4 days?
    No your not. It's because it is going to be the 4* release event, so those are usually 4 days long. All they will do is make one of the days a 48hr sub like always. Nothing new for a release.
  • fmftintfmftint Posts: 3,629 Chairperson of the Boards
    Quick question on Taskmaster, do you have to set his powers EVERY match or will they repeat until you want to change them
  • FelessaFelessa Posts: 156 Tile Toppler
    As strange as it seems, I've never heard of this character before... but he look likes very fun to play, and he is a villain, something MPQ is needing.

    But how can that do that?  Is a certain day 48 hours regardless of what you pick?  That seems really weird...

    Your stuck only going against anyone that chose that particular door, so it does not matter that its for 1 day or 2 days. If all 3 doors are set for a 48hr sub then its the same thing as a 24hr one. Everyone will have the same experience for the most part.

    Regular 3-day event.  The timing is from the start of S1 to the end of S5 so it looks like 4 days.  S5 starts at 2am on Friday the 5th, It ends at 2am on the Monday the 8th so 3 days.  The events date always look like that

    Edit to add that Webbed Wonder seems to have the wrong start time, should be 7th at 7am I think @brigby
