Reply Subj: It is because he isn't a master at every form of combat...

> why do the new marvel hanfbooks state that Cap is a 6 instead of a 7. For the longest time he has been a 7. Taskmaster is a 7, red skull just got a 6, and Cap is shown at being a 6. Why the change?

It isn't a change. It is only defining it more is all. Captain America is not a master in all forms of combat, he is a master in several forms, but not all forms. Taskmaster, due to his Photographic Reflexes, is a master in all forms of combat. If there was a new one that suddenly emerged, he could master it within seconds/minutes, while Captain America would have to train hard at it, taking months/years to master. Remember, what took Captain America years to master (throwing his sheild for example), Taskmaster mastered just by watching him once.

Here is how they are explained:
OHotMU Power Grids

Proficiency in hand-to-hand combat
1 = Poor
2 = Normal
3 = Some training
4 = Experienced fighter
5 = Master of a single form of combat
6 = Master of several forms of combat
7 = Master of all forms of combat

While you didn't mention him, I am only mentioning him to help you get a better idea of things. Captain America from the Revolutionary War era has a fighting skill of 4, because he doesn't have anywhere near the training that his ancestor does.

Hope this helps you better understand how it is done.

Have a Nice Day!

I understand what you type but for the longest time wheather it was trading cards or the Marvel Universe handbook Captain America was the highest at 7 and suddenly this changed. I just don't know why the change. Captain America should have been a 6 from the get go and not suddeny a 6. I personally think Captain America should be a 7 since he is the one who trains everyone and trains all the time and has been a complete UFC type fighter with mixed martial arts before it was popular.
