Yes, Tae Kwon Do is a very good martial; however, if you are trying to choosing a marital art to study yourself, the more important consideration is the quality of the instructors. There are good Taekwondo instructors and bad taekwondo instructors. Shop around and find a great instructor.
Another factor is whether you want to learn a more offensive martial art or not. Tae Kwon Do was made for defence. It can be using in offence, but there are many close contact techniques that will help you defend yourself. Karate is a more offensive form.
Tae Kwon Do also uses more of the feet than other Martial Arts. There are many forms of kicks. There are less hand movements. The hand usually only do punches and blocks. They have a few other movements that are not used often.
Doing Tae Kwon Do also helps you think. Your mind seems to work better after starting Tae Kwon Do. This may only be the case for some people. It may improve concentration and memory. But this may not happen in all cases.
All in all, Tae Kwon Do is a good martial art.

a grandmaster of the art and extremly dangerous
In my experience, I found Tae Kwon Do to be a more advanced and proper martial art than Karate.
Tae Kwon Do originated from Korea and is thought to be the oldest form of Korean Martial Arts. Tae Kwon Do combines self defence and combat techniques.
Tae Kwon Do and Jeet Kune Do are different in many respects. First and foremost, while they share a similarity in being philosophies, and being an approach to Martial Arts, Jeet Kune Do differs in its philosophy to Tae Kwon Do, further, Tae Kwon Do is also a Martial Art in and of itself. Tae Kwon Do's roots begin in Korea as a form of fighting mounted opponents by way of high kicks and strikes at angles. Jeet Kune Do is more of a foundation that helps further develop an individual philosophy and personal connection to a martial path.
Not specifically. I'm sure there are people that have created 'their own' martial art based on some things they learned in Tae Kwon Do, but they haven't expanded or been successful to the point that they are recognized.
The Korean martial art Tae Kwon Do for example has several and not limited to different forms and therefore have different logos To Distinguish between the different forms.Blue Dragon Tae Kwon Do is the best form and logo is a blue dragon,White Tiger Tae Kwon Do I believe is for kids or adults wanting to keep fit rather than be an excellent martial artist and is nowhere as near effective as Blue Dragon Tae Kwon Do.The logos I believe are just made up by the Martial arts teacher who has developed there own form of teaching the martial art and taken bits out and added some.
