MARVEL PITCH WEEK STARTS EARLY

Like most wouldbe creators, I'd absolutely love to take a crack at writing something for Marvel, and I just know the days coming when ol' Joey Q's going to bust-up into my living room, all Kool-Aid man style, and beg me to helm one of his books...

So, with that in mind, I'm going to throw out 10 ideas over the next 10 days that I'd love to drop on the man (and I don't wanna see 'em anywhere else, ya leeches).

Today's pitch...

THE TASKMASTER

"He's the most dangerous man on The Initiative's payroll... and he's coming to a town near you."

Post Civil War, SHIELD in conjunction with the US government's Department of Defense have placed a superteam in every state as part of the 50 State Initiative. As a safeguard, and before the President will sign any team into action, they'll have to pass a grueling final exam administered by none other than the Taskmaster.

Now, with a government pardon under his belt, the Taskmaster travels from state-to-state, springing unexpected assaults on the resident do-gooders, making more money than he ever imagined possible just by doing what he does best - putting the beatdown on superheroes.

But, when a secret cabal of senaters deem several states' teams expendible, they set up the Taskmaster to take the fall for the "unplanned" deaths and turn him into the most wanted man in the Marvel U...

Oh, those poor stupid bastards.

If the first one's any indication, you'll be fixing a Quesada-sized hole in your living room wall next weekend ... !
