    I definitely liked the OST here more than the original game. It was like a perfect fusion dance of MCU and ITSV. lol

    That would be pretty cool, and it would also just be great to see the costume with some regularity. It also kinda makes me wish comic Miles had some kind of utility belt lie that suit has. With all the great stuff the game did I wonder if going forward any writers at some point will take inspiration from it and make it canon for comic Miles and what they'll choose.

    I thought it was interesting during the game:

    spoilers:
    When Miles and Ganke are designing Miles' "real" suit, one of the sketches is in Prowler colors. And this was before he knew it was Aaron.
    end of spoilers

    Random question: Has Miles ever met/fought the Punisher? I feel like that could be the basis for an interesting arc, provided Marvel editorial isn't afraid of "politics."

    Not that I'm aware of, but it could definitely make an interesting story.

    Well, I put it in quotes because it's not like it would directly comment on anything, but a Miles v. Punisher story would be interesting because it would touch on issues of (social) justice and brutality in law enforcement that have sparked major protests in the United States since the killing of George Floyd. I mean, you would have a young Black man squaring off a White vigilante hell-bent on killing perceived "criminals and low lives"; the imagery is certainly there.

    I mean, I doubt in general Marvel would be willing to commit to making Punisher a hard stand-in for Police Brutality when they've done their best to distance the correlation between the two.

    yeah thats a reach Punisher has nothing to do with the police im pretty sure there was an issue when he hated that some policeman like what he does

    Even Gerry Conway was vocal about reclaiming the skull from cops trying to use it for their own symbol. To quote him, "They're embracing an outlaw mentality".

    Okay, fair enough. I guess it's just that I'm not totally convinced by that disavowal, but y'all are right that Marvel would be very reluctant to cast Frank in that role.

    For all of Frank Castle's flaws, he is not someone who sides with the law just because it's the law. He's gone after cops and white-collar criminals before. He would absolutely be against Derek Chauvin, systemic racism, and the cops that try to claim The Punisher as "one of them".

    True enough, at least on the last part, and in some versions of his backstory, the whole reason he became the Punisher was that corrupt cops were aiding and abetting the murderers of his family, so there would be nothing done to avenge his family otherwise.

    I think Ultimate Punisher literally had his family killed by corrupt cops.

    I'm not as familiar with his comics, but at least the Netflix version showed disgust towards racism. I remember he was infuriated when his son used a racial slur in one of the flashbacks.
