I happen to think that bad days define us. Specifically in how we handle ourselves during such a day. Some of you will swear, others will bottle up the rage and some people will actually make positive life choices. And that’s good! And then there happen to be those kinds of bad days which make you want to find your nearest assault rifle and reduce the entire crime population of New York City to single digit numbers before lunch.
Frank Castle had a day like that.
I’m not the biggest fan of the Netflix series starring certain characters from the Marvel Universe, but hot damn did they nail the Punisher last year in season 2 of Daredevil. Jon Bernthal’s violent agent of vengeance was a force of nature in that show, an unforgiving killer whose trigger finger was pointed at criminal scum. That entire season is pretty much a graphic rebirth for Frank Castle as he became the Punisher, complete with the iconic skull vest and a van full of guns.
So you might want to try and keep him off the shelf that has other villainous sixth-scale movie characters in your collection, as Hot Toys have brought the Punisher to life:
