6. Taskmaster (Tony Masters)

Imagine being able to watch someone flip a pancake and then you can flip it just like them, but with anything and everything. That's Taskmaster, aka Tony Masters, the guy who turned "monkey see, monkey do" into the ultimate party trick. Except, instead of party tricks, he's mimicking superhero moves and using them to outfight, outmaneuver, and outclass the very heroes he copies.

A movie about Taskmaster could be like a behind-the-scenes tour of the superhero world, but with a twist. We'd dive into Tony's life, from being at the top of his class in the school of hard knocks to becoming the go-to guy for villains needing a crash course in hero-beating. It's like watching your favorite cooking show but for epic battles and superhero showdowns.

But here's where it gets juicy: Taskmaster isn't just a copycat in a cool costume - he's a man caught in the moral gray zone, juggling his talents between the highest bidder and his own twisted sense of right and wrong. One moment, he's teaching baddies how to throw shields like Captain America, and the next, he's wondering if he should have just been a gymnastics coach instead. This movie wouldn't just be about the action-packed life of a mercenary with a photographic reflex memory, it would be a hard look into the complexities of what it means to be a villain who's not really bad but not exactly good either. It's the kind of story that makes you root for the guy you're not sure you should be cheering for, all while being wildly entertained by the spectacle of his life's work.
