Marvel Comics: the advertisements for the films.

My 2 years of Spanish in high school tells me that the "Dos Soles" gang means the "2 Soles" gang in American.

Frank is one tough sumbitch

Does anyone actually care about The Punisher anymore?
Namor - 3/5/2014, 9:41 AM
Im glad i'm just a CBM fan at this point, because its just so hard for me to get into this kinda art nowadays(modern). It has such a cartoonish feel to it now. Maybe its me getting older, I don't know.

@TheGreenRanger I care. more than most heroes. I care about Daredevil too though.

Dos Soles = 2 Suns

@TheGreenRanger

No, not really. I mean, you would think he would learn to wear a mask by now so his enemies and the police wouldn't recognize him on the streets. But as you can see on the panels above he hasn't. Smh, the fool is going to end up dead or in jail.

Lol wait is that Electro!?!

I guess ppl can't continue bitching about his movie version lol

Ron Perlman Electro. Shit villain.

Punisher works best when he's outside of the MARVEL Universe, when he's just taking on the Mob and street gangs. He's an action hero, not a superhero.

@MarkoftheDemon
He does wear a mask now, because he has a lady police officer friend as Frank but she's trying to catch the Punisher. The mask is similar to Call of Duty: Ghosts

Issue #2 of this series is when it debuted

He killed all of the NY mafia. There's no organized crime left in new england that isn't run by Kingpin, and Frank has a truce with him. The people who slaughtered his family are long dead, and he brought down the entire cartel system that spawned them. That mission is over. 35 years of that was enough. Dude deserves closure.
thejackwagon94 - 3/5/2014, 11:18 AM
No more Kingpin either, for a while, anyways, since Otto took a mech to Shadowland. Know it's not necessarily popular, but I dig Superior Spidey and would have liked to see more of him and Frank teaming up against organized crime or something. Unrelated rant closed!

One of the coolest ways that could bring the Punisher back into the MCU, given the direction they're taking Shield and Cap, would be to play off his familiarity with the military, and always acting as a loner and spoiler.

Rhodey could walk into meet Stark (already in his IM suit) and report that the War Machine suit had gone missing. They go back and forth and after some investigation it turns up that the suit was hijacked by a man with military clearance, a marine named F. Castle.

Cut to a shot of Frank in the War Machine suit with a crudely painted white skull over the mask. Castle has 'borrowed' the suit to engage some threat that he felt under-armed and ill-equipped to deal with.

While going forward he would inevitably have to lose the suit it would be an awesome way to reintroduce the character. No Thomas Jane plz ffs.

Why they've never done this is beyond me....

And Marvel continues to perpetuate their modern penchant for crap art. Is it just me or does Castle look like Bruce Campbell on page 2, panel 1?

@ JoJo1982

I didn't recognize him. He looks like the Molecule Man in those pics.

Shoulda wore the hoodie.

fantastic comic book,definitely one of the best from marvel.
Jollem - 3/5/2014, 3:20 PM
i dig the style. it's consistent and technically nice
TheRealRemyLebeau - 3/5/2014, 3:56 PM
Art looks just like @humperdinks work.
MementoMori - 3/5/2014, 5:04 PM
I like the art, although... some part of me feels like it's panels from a video game tie-in comic. Also, Electro? Gotta gear up for TASM2, I guess. I agree with @AstroZombie for the most part, however I think The Punisher sometimes works well with both Spider-man and Daredevil.
Inhuman - 3/5/2014, 8:34 PM
I want to see Punisher go up against Crossbones in the MCU. Plus how cool would it be if they make the Mandarin the one responsible for killing Castles family. Marvel loves to throw the source material out the window lol
