Is Taskmaster back too being a villian again? I kind of liked him on the Avengers Academy and as an anti-hero. Can you give me some of the villians? It's not the original Whiplash is it?
As far as Whirlwind being scum, I don't know, but from my understanding, when he was the Human Top, he was pretty much just a regular crook. That dressing women up as Jan and then killing them sounds a bit creepy and weird though.
Taskmaster's attending a villain bar in this issue, with a policy that all bar fights are to the death, and Venom's attempting to interrogate him. We aren't sure why he's there YET... could just be a scouting trip to absorb skills. Whiplash is the Iron Man 2 movie version that first appeared in Iron Man vs. Whiplash #1... the original is still safely dead. Some of the villains include Constrictor, the entire Circus of Crime, Whiplash, the new Vengeance, and a legion of others that were partially identified elsewhere on the board.
Whirlwind was just a crook as the Human Top... but even then, he was infiltrated into Jan's life attempting to get close, which looks much creepier in light of later revelations.
