Photographic Reflexes: The man known only as the Taskmaster possesses a unique form of photographic memory that ties directly into his muscle memory, giving him what scientists have dubbed “photographic reflexes”. He can perfectly imitate any physical action, no matter how complex, after only seeing it once. So long as he can periodically practice a memorized action, or simply view it again in a recording or real life, it stays with him permanently. In game terms, this allows him to learn a new physically-based talent by only spending 100 Karma. He has studied numerous recordings of some of world’s best fighters, and when in combat against anyone he has studied*, he can often predict their next move. In game terms, this gives him two power stunts
Anyone that has been studied by the Taskmaster fights him with a -2CS penalty.
With a successful intuition FEAT roll, he can wait until he hears what his opponent will do before deciding what he will do. He can make a separate roll for everyone in the fight which he has studied.
