Frank Castle is dead. Call me… The Punisher

Punisher (3)

In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law. To pursue… natural justice. This is not vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive, it’s an emotional response.

No, not vengeance. Punishment.

In a multiverse filled with genocidal titans, men of Iron and mutants most uncanny, the most down to Earth of characters has somehow managed to emerge as one of the most fascinating characters in Marvel comics.

I am of course talking about the Punisher, whose sole superpower is that he happens to be really, really good at killing criminals. Originally a Spider-Man villain, the Punisher became something else in the 1980s when a solo title took off.

Since then, he’s been involved in a number of series and battles, and even managed to kill his way across the entire super-powered spectrum in one comic.

Thing is, the Punisher works best as a street-level vigilante. A war veteran obsessed with punishing the guilty, unable to see the grey in any situation. A ruthless killer, who acts as a bogeyman for the criminal underworld. The real Punisher, should be able to scare you with a  glance. Much like this stoney-faced figure does:

A perpetual scowl and five o’clock shadow etched across his hardened square jaw, Frank Castle suits up in his classic black and white costume, complete with a removable shoulder holster, functioning pouches, and of course, the iconic skull emblem which strikes fear into criminals everywhere.

What’s in the box?

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Grand Admiral Chief

    Awesome

  • Commander JJ of the Normandy

    As far as Punisher movies went, War Zone was actually pretty damn decent. The one before that was just too soft and typical Marvel of the time.

  • Hammersteyn

    Well his games and movies are dead for certain…

    • Commander JJ of the Normandy

      They really could have made a decent game.
      A Max Payne-like game would have worked great. Just need more violence and we’re sorted.
      But they’re always trying to appease the “children” because comic book heroes are primarily aimed at them. Bullsh!t.
      They’ve screwed up enough Marvel heroes now with terrible games, it’s about time they get their heads out of their asses and realise that people want the deeper and darker games when it comes to characters like The Punisher.
