I do assume all of you clearly saw the bit in the article where it said the cover WASN'T the reason for the colosso-last page? (Heh, funny how they say last page instead of issue? Clearly they don't stand a prayer of competing with Cap 25!)
I'm actually interested, which is a nice surprise. Sure, Bendis has a HUGE history of anticlimax (House of M will 'change everything' and 'break the internet in half', 'Ronin's identity will shock and entertain you' etc) but... well, if this were pre civil war I'd be sceptical but quite honestly, with Spidey unmasking, Cap dead, the newer, more brutal Thunderbolts, Aunt May shot... the marvel universe really is wildly unpredictable and ya never know what they might do next...
Just how many ninjas are there in the world these days? I would have thought Wolverine cleared out 90% of them back in the '80s. And.. come on this is Bendis.. they'll be fighting the same ninjas for 10 issues.
If Bendis writes the story, Echo wins, because she's (1) his, and (2) newer, and therefore automatically kewler, (3) a chick Frank Cho can put huge boobs onto (Cho will be available in a few months when his gig on Mighty comes to an end...).

If anyone else writes the story? Look at it realistically, Echo will beat Taskmaster 9 times out of 10, regardless of writer, because SHES A GOOD GUY and Tasky is EVIL. Unless this fight happens in the pages of Cable&Deadpool, I should think the odds favor Echo pretty much regardless of writer.
I think Echo would win. Tasky is still looking over his shoulder for the invisible Woman. How do you copy getting smashed flat by an invisible forece hammer. Plus, he still has to be hurting from that.

Maybe I'm just desperately trying to ensure I have more posts than you. Maybe I feel I need to compensate alone for the superior number of people who hate Nu-Marvel
I don't hate Marvel, just most of the writers and the pin head in charge.
Ok, maybe not most of the writers since my only recent experience has been with only writer. The writer of Avengers, the only title I wanted to follow, but can't because the guy can't write. So that's only two, one writer and the pinhead in charge, which is not ALL of Marvel.
No, that's a bad idea, he's just take over that planet by means of re-writing all of their leaders. Then he would come back to earth an wreak havok on all of us be releasing the full power of his unending ninja hordes.
