    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Dec 16, 2020

    MacKay twists the artifacts of a totally mundane slugfest and turns it into something really, really enjoyable. Superman has been around for the better part of a century. Put him in a different costume with a different identity in a different universe, and he's still going to interact in the same way he has in thousands of various conflicts stretching back to the later 1930s. Somehow MacKay has managed to stage a Superman-style slugfest in a way that makes it feel fresh and exciting, courtesy of a charming villain. Read Full Review

    It's hard to imagine Taskmaster at a lower point than the aftermath of his Hyperion fight, but if there's anything that remained unbruised afterwards, it's his confidence and resolve. Read Full Review

    This issue gets too serious for its own good, but still reveals more about Taskmaster's personality and makes the reader care more about the main character's goals. Read Full Review

    I genuinely really loved this issue. Wasn't expecting something this good from a Taskmaster miniseries, but here we are.

    Tony and Nick Fury Jr tackle what they figure is their hardest mission first: Phil Coulson, who tends to hang out with Hyperion these days. "Taskmaster vs. Hyperion" should only go one way -- but look at whose name is on the book. The creators show exactly what you need to do to turn a potentially-boring slugfest into a fascinating struggle. My two favorite bits are the outstanding timing (those planning flashbacks are perfectly placed) and the slurred but significant character revelations Tony shares as he gets clobbered.
