Does Marvel’s New Spider-Man Costume Point to a Black Widow Villain Connection?

by admin

I believe that Peter Parker isn’t under that mask. This is Tony Masters, otherwise known as the Taskmaster. The same villain and occasional antihero who will be represented on the big screen this May (maybe) in Black Widow.

Hey, he’s even pulled off the glowing orange/gold eyes before.

While it will be a few months before we get to that leg of the story, it certainly fits in certain ways. By March, Taskmaster will be finishing up two miniseries. One is Taskmaster by Jed MacKay and Alessandro Vitti. That one ties closer to the upcoming movie by having him framed for murder and being hunted down by Black Widow. His other big appearance is King in Black: Thunderbolts, where he and the rest of the team are dealing with the big Venom crossover story. With those two stories done, Taskmaster’s schedule is wide open.

But there’s another thing about that Thunderbolts storyline. These days, the Thunderbolts work for Mayor Wilson Fisk. While there are no real details in the solicitations for the Amazing Spider-Man issues where the new look debuts, it is very apparent that Kingpin is a major player. More specifically, “And Kingpin’s plans start coming together!” and, “Kingpin makes it personal with Peter Parker and New York City itself will pay the price!”

Otherwise, the only notable line in any of the solicits is, “Peter Parker gets a new job!” Considering the prominent STARK logo on the cover to #63, it could be that Peter is just wearing another Stark-created Spider-Man costume, since that worked so well for everybody last time. Then again, if it is Taskmaster, it could be Tony or someone like him behind the money.
