    I think it was more or less confirmed. During the story arc of when they moved to L.A. and Reptil was kidnapped by his future self, future Finesse seemed to confirm that Taskmaster was her father.

    It was implied, and her future self shared the memory loss issues that Taskmaster was said to have as well, and when she was powered up with her own future knowledge, she was using martial arts moves from future folk, like the 'Sky Panther's Strike' or whatever.

    I was hugely disappointed by that, as she had been introduced as a superhuman polymath, learning languages, electronics, spycraft, chemistry, musical instruments *and* fighting styles and gymnastics, and then sort of stealth-retconned into being only able to replicate fighting styles and physical stuff, to make her more like the Taskmaster. She went from being completely original, and with unlimited potential (including to be one of the rare, at the time, ladies to enter the 'top 10 geniuses' list, years before it was flooded with Riri, Nadia, Lunella, etc.), to a less-interesting version of the Taskmaster (which 616 already had one of, with Melee, from the Initiative, who Taskmaster expressed an interest in sparring with!). Ugh.

    I wish we'd see more of Finesse, even if she's been massively downgraded from 'master of anything she studies' to 'Taskmaster 2.0.' I liked her practical streak, and how it made her a bit less innately heroic than some of her peers (like Reptil and Mettle), and perhaps a little too well-suited to slide into villainy, if not given a logical / practical argument to be on the side of the angels.

    I wouldn't mind seeing more of Reptil and Striker, for that matter, or some of the Initiative kids (Komodo and Hardball, for instance, or some of the lesser seen people like Red Nine and Telemetry and Gorilla Girl), or some of the many cool teen mutants that have been mostly forgotten (Hellion, Dust, Indra, Loa, etc.).

    Really, Marvel's just got way too many characters I'd like to see more of! It's pretty much the definition of an embarrassment of riches.

    Maybe what we need is an Avengers version of Generation X/Wolverine and the X-Men - a book with maybe eight or so regulars and a lot of others appearing as and when the plot calls for it. But they'd have to call it something other than Avengers Academy due to the mobile game.

    In case you didn't already know....there were plenty of super-teens (and young adults) recently seen within the SECRET EMPIRE FCBD Issue and let's hope that there'll be other super-teens spotted within SE: UPRISING #1; besides the ones who joined the Black Widow in helping her to take down HYDRA.

    Implied and seemingly confirmed by a future version of 616 Finesse that 616 Taskmaster is her father? So not really a confirmation which means subject to change, yes?
    Imperius Rex! It's clobberin' time! Hulk is strongest one there is! Have at thee!
    I'm the best there is at what I do, but what I do best isn't very nice.

    Marvel has a ton of teen heroes that are just being ignored. In addition to Champions, I would like a Young Avengers and New Warriors ongoing. I know these teams may seem redundant in theme and/or function but I just happen to really like these heroes/concepts.

    I'm glad that Runaways is returning. I really hope the new series can live up to the older issues. I also hope the show does well too.
    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!

    I don't think that would be redundant. From what I've seen of New Warriors & Young Avengers they generally deal with normal superhero drama with a few tweaks here & there for certain runs (TV stars for the former or Road trip for the ladder) Where as Champions is about a brat pack throwing a fit because of a stupid event & thinking they're oh so better being "woke" & trying (& failing) to deal with grounded problems & lame Millennial villains.

    A renewed Young Avengers title would be a godsend
    • Wiccan
    • Hulkling
    • Speed
    • Stinger
    • Spider-Girl (Anya Corazon)
    • Patriot (now renamed Nomad and with a new suit)


    I've also been waiting to see numerous teen heroes like Hazmat, Cloud 9, Gravity etc. to make a comeback. I'm not sure where the best place for them is, but its odd that such characters are entirely absent from the MU
