punisher looks like one badass mofo with the facial hair, he should keep it.

What's the status of the movie rights for the character?

Excellent match up. THAT is an epic battle.

This should be a good read...fun to see how Frank deals with the Avengers.

Some of you need to relax about The Punisher fighting superpowered individuals,this is a comic book story. Its NOT REAL.

Let the creators tell their story.

Rucka did well

Frank does not have a chance against Thor!

The Punisher vs Thor. This should be good.

Unless Punisher is playing chess with Thor on the Battlefield, one finger flick with blow Frank's brains out.

.............

How awesome would THAT be as a final panel?

I like the beard. Gives him more of a mean grizzled look.

Whoever takes over, i hope they keep Punisher with the beard, he loojs more badass with it.

BTW, Widow should be able to take down Castle relatively easy IMO.

Wait......The Punisher vs Thor? Guess this issue is a huge spite thread huh?

Nah,Punisher could beat Widow..with difficulty.
She's a skilled but her agility & strength only go so far.

Frank has fought much better combatants hand to hand with greater fighting skills like Daredevil & much stronger foes such as Kingpin.

I really like how its been proven time & again The Punisher's level of pain tolerance is off the charts,he can take serious damage & keep coming.
No candyass healing factor..Castle is toughest one there is!

I really like the first one, so this one should also be awesome. Great artwork and writing.

Although I like the Black Widow's character, I think Spider-man had a better chance against Punisher, and he obviously failed. Also, there's obviously a #3, so Punisher beats BW, and I'm willing to support my argument with my paycheck if anyone wants to bet. ;)
