Taskmaster's Academy

Instead of operating as a gun-for-hire or world conqueror, Taskmaster traditionally acted as a teacher, training criminals in the martial arts and weaponry before sending them off as henchmen for other organizations like HYDRA, the Secret Empire, ULTIMATUM, etc. Using his photographic reflexes, Taskmaster deconstructed the fighting styles of various super-heroes and world famous martial artists, giving him a unique talent for teaching moves to his students.

Known graduates of his academy include Diamondback, Spymaster II, Death-Shield, Longbow, and the Blood Spider. Anaconda and Crossbones both taught as regular instructors at his schools before graduating to super-villainy.
