    Where was the explanation in Age of Heroes # 3 why Taskmaster and Constrictor parted ways I mean it's not that big a deal because it's pretty easy to see why they parted ways but a little bit of explanation other then "they decided to part ways' couldn't have hurt."




    Anyhow I'm looking forward to this mini and am curious to see what they've got in store for him beyond this project.

    I don't care all that much for Taskmaster, but I like FVL and Paolo's work looks even better than it did on Voodoo. I might have to check this out.

    Awesome - I'm so excited for this series that I could scream.
    I loved Jefte Paolo's art on Doctor Voodoo so I'm really happy that he'll be drawing this as well.

    This sounds horrible, he maxed out his memory? Isnt that joke from Married With Children? Hell, his memory should have more space than anybody else because he SKIPS the learning process. His power is photographic reflexes, after seeing something once his body can imitate it exactly. He doesnt have to go through any of the motions of learning how to stand, move, react, he just does it right away. This is really destroying the character since now he actually has a limit and cannot learn anymore without loosing something.

    On top of that a freelancer is being chased because he is a freelancer? That's just bad decision making on whoever is chasing him. That just takes this highly skilled professional off your table for future business.

    I was going to ask the same thing. I missed that too in the AoH story.
