I imagine that Peter Parker isn’t underneath that masks. This is Tony Masters, in any other case referred to as the Taskmaster. The similar villain and occasional antihero who can be represented on the massive display screen this May (possibly) in Black Widow.
Hey, he’s even pulled off the glowing orange/gold eyes earlier than.
While it will likely be a couple of months earlier than we get to that leg of the story, it definitely suits in sure methods. By March, Taskmaster can be ending up two miniseries. One is Taskmaster by Jed MacKay and Alessandro Vitti. That one ties nearer to the upcoming film by having him framed for homicide and being hunted down by Black Widow. His different large look is King in Black: Thunderbolts, the place he and the remaining of the staff are coping with the massive Venom crossover story. With these two tales executed, Taskmaster’s schedule is broad open.
But there’s one other factor about that Thunderbolts storyline. These days, the Thunderbolts work for Mayor Wilson Fisk. While there are not any actual particulars within the solicitations for the Amazing Spider-Man points the place the brand new look debuts, it is rather obvious that Kingpin is a serious participant. More particularly, “And Kingpin’s plans start coming together!” and, “Kingpin makes it personal with Peter Parker and New York City itself will pay the price!”
Otherwise, the one notable line in any of the solicits is, “Peter Parker gets a new job!” Considering the outstanding STARK brand on the quilt to #63, it may very well be that Peter is simply sporting one other Stark-created Spider-Man costume, since that labored so effectively for everyone final time. Then once more, whether it is Taskmaster, it may very well be Tony or somebody like him behind the cash.
