THE PUNISHER #4

(W) Nathan Edmondson (A/CA) Mitch Gerads

• The Punisher, captured by the Dos Sols gang, is caught in the metaphorical lion's den. Tough luck, metaphorical lions.

• The 131 get the call: Take down the Punisher with extreme prejudice.

• A new player tosses her hat in the ring, and Frank's gotta ask himself a question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well...do ya, Frank?

Just like Frank said, just kill him already. This is why villains never win, they pass up opportunities to kill the guys just for petty delights.

@medulaoblaganda: It's a comic, if everything were realistic, everyone ranging from the Punisher to Batman to Captain America would be permanently dead.

@medulaoblaganda: Electro isn't trying to kill him and humans can take electric shocks without dying.

Anybody else think Frank is going to end up joining the Howling Commandos?

Really enjoying this series so far. It's not perfect but it's tough for The Punisher to be perfect because we have to accept him as a regular hero in a world of superheroes. I think the dialogue has been good so far. I am interested to see what happens with his female cop friend as she slipped that ring on her finger in the last issue.

...and without suffering any brain damage of course! Oh wait! Helping him remembering stuff that aren't even his memories while almost electrocuting him seems a little bit over the edge though. However, I don't think all comic book stories need to be realistic (lol!) and it does certainly look nice!

@donfelipe: Well electrocution has been used as torture since people invented batteries.

The point is here the voltage looks high enough to set the whole house on fire. Nonetheless Frank will walk away from this just a few pages later as if nothing had happened.

Yea but it might look crazy but we don't actually know how high that voltage is.

Like I said it doesn't always have to "be" realistic to be cool and it sure looks cool. Besides, what doesn't kill Frank...

@tensta: punisher is the only street leveler that i know that can take damage from super human characters. he doesn't have any powers at all. he is just a human. i give him respect him for that. black widow cannot withstand that punishment electro is giving the punisher. batman cannot take that punishment too.

@medulaoblaganda: that's what I always liked about him, regular human being wrecking havoc amongst super-heroes. Who cares about powers ;)
