Punisher to Relaunch…again…

As apart of their “Fresh Start” Frank Castle is following the footsteps of Captain America, the Avengers, Spider-man and Black Panther and relaunching at #1. But…it still has Matthew Rosenburg attached as the writer…But #1 issues sell so let’s make some money.

The new Punisher #1 launching August 1, Rosenberg and Riccardo Burchielli are doing a stripped-down version of Frank Castle, having lost the War Machine armor he had acquired at the beginning of Marvel Legacy. Marvel even saying that this is a Frank Castle with a bigger fish to fry.

“We’re going to get back to Frank Castle with a handgun and a knife, stalking the streets of New York, and getting his hands dirty. But we’re also going to see a man who has changed from his time in the armor,” said Rosenberg. “He developed a taste for bigger game and larger targets, and he’s not going to give that up easily. So in a sense, it’s back to basics – but on a bigger scale.”

 

 

 

In this new series, the Punisher will, among other things, “travel overseas to overthrow a government and kill a world leader, and then come back home and go toe-to-toe with some of the most powerful people in the Marvel Universe.” What do you think of this announcement?

  1. Punisher definitely needs a relaunch. . .right back into a separate Mature continuity. Let’s face it, Marvel hasn’t known what the hell to do with Punisher since his MAX series ended. They keep trying to mix him in to the regular Marvel sandbox, but he just doesn’t play well with Superheroes (except some of the more “street level” guys like Daredevil). They just keep rebooting and rebooting. . .Punisher is on VOLUME 11 for God’s sake! When will they finally realize Punisher works best where the F-Bombs fly and the bullets never run out?
