Real Name: Tony Masters
First Appearance: Avengers #195 (1980)
Why: A villain with S.H.I.E.L.D. agent roots, albeit ones that weren't introduced into his backstory until a couple of years ago, Taskmaster has a skill set that's both cool and entirely affordable: he can duplicate any (non-super) physical action he sees performed. He can punch as well as Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu, and throw a shield as well as Captain America. He also has a business niche that makes him an interesting recurring character: he runs a series of schools that train henchmen for other super villains and evil organizations.
Why Not: His costume might need a lot of tweaking to work in a live-action context. If the show starts bringing in Daredevil characters, his abilities and Echo's overlap a lot.
