And Happy, Happy Turkey Day....
Well before you stuff your face, have about you stuff your eyes and brain with a fight like this that you'll only see on the Thanksgiving Day edition of So, Who Would Win: The Taskmaster VS. Christopher Chance, the Human Target.
That's right, it's the man who can copy any move he sees against the man who gets paid to impersonate anyone.
Let's look at the stats shall we?
|Abilities||Genius level intellect|
Master assassin and tactician
Olympic level conditioning
Master hand-to-hand combatant and martial artist
Master swordsman and marksman
Master archer and bowman
Physical movement prediction
Master of disguise
-The Human Target:
Hmmm. Looks like they should really be super-close in terms of abilities and skill, except I think Tasky's ahead of Chance in the skills department...by far......
In fact it may be all Chance can do to survive a one-on-one onslaught by someone like the Taskmaster, especially considering all the little tricks and mannerisms he's copied from all of the Marvel superheroes he's fought.
The Human Target
Who wins and why?
Hey did you know the Human Target's had two TV shows based off his adventures?
The first one was made back in 1992, with rocker Rick Springfield in the lead role.
It didn't make it past the pilot though. Guess it was that bad.
The next one wasn't too long ago, back in 2010 and running a whole year, the Human Target was a show on FOX, that also didn't last too long, starring Mark Valley.
My guess is it didn't adapt too directly from the source material (No disguises) and tried to be too much like "24."
Oh, and then there was actor Will Traval's portrayal as the Human Target in season 5 of Arrow.
He's not a bad character, he just needs to find the right place for him. Maybe Netflix, HBO or Showtime?
Anyhoo, have fun stuffing your face with turkey and mashed potatoes.
That's me for this week, have a good one people.....
