    Default The future (?) Of the Punisher?

    Haven't seen much of Frank lately. Have his gun toting ways fallen out of favour in today's sensitive times? I despise guns in real life but know the difference between fantasy and reality.
    Does he deserve a comeback? It's tricky that he's supposed to be a Nam vet.
    What stories would you like to see? A modern story dealing with anti Asian racism, 70s crime noir stories or something else?

    Your thoughts and opinions on this?

    I think my favourite era of Punisher was in his prime in the early 90s. I liked the stuff that felt like the action movies of that period, from the street vigilante to the mercenary for hire kind of stuff. I would like to see something like that which does not take itself too seriously. A book I also enjoyed at that time was Silver Sable and the Wild Pack and maybe something where he is kept busy with an operation like that would help with setting up the book to let him go on a mission of the week sort of thing. I also currently enjoy IDWs G.I. Joe ARAH so I think there is a way to do modern action without making everything so unhinged.

    Thanks. Would like to see Frank hit the road and tackle crime in other countries, trafficking, dark web stuff etc.

    Has he popped up anywhere after War of the Realms, come to think of it? That's the last time I remember seeing him.

    I would like to see Frank in his own world. Kind of like Punisher Max. He really doesnt work in a world of heroes who dress up in costumes and fight crime. I mean Heroes Like Daredevil, Spiderman, heroes who cant stand Murder or when some one causes another death even by mistake. yet they team up with this guy all the time and let him walk away? It just kinds of makes people Like Spiderman, Daredevil, Luke Cage and other heroes look less like heroes when they let Frank Walk.

    I enjoy his stories but I dont like his team up with other heroes stories.

    Frank's popularity goes up and down each decade. And without going into a political rant, I don't think today's times are all that sensitive. Punisher's not in a current solo right now, but neither are a number of solid B-list Marvel characters.

    I'm pretty sure Frank's still a Nam vet in the Max universe.

    Frank works in the heroes world quite well. He started there and to being a killer and then other heroes that don't like that having to team up with him. They do it with Wolverine all the time.

    Probably similar to what he did with him in his Marvel MAX run.

    Aaron (IMO) works better with characters like The Punisher.

    Punisher vs Barracuda, right? Solicited pre-COVID. Didn't end up getting published.
