so from Marvel.com, they released an exclusive, unlettered preview for punisher 225, which is releasing on may 30.

It's pretty crazy, not gonna lie. The iron man armor finally gets a high tier showing, and maybe above that, if he actually does well (and maybe beats) against thing and hercules

Impressive. That's probably the best Iron Man armor showing since AvX.

Yet Iron Man's "Captain Marvel-Buster" couldn't do anything to Carol...

Wow Thompson is wanking Castle in the War Machine suit hard, not even a tactical reason given for why Frank can fight off a group of heroes including multiple as powerful, if not moreso than War Machine. And beating Tony is the height of bad writing as well, Tony's experience and superior armour should have wiped the floor with Castle in a direct confrontation.

@lvenger: With dialogue, the unlettered preview is far less impressive. Basically, they keep on telling him that he can't hurt them but he's too stubborn to stop. Defeating Iron Man by throwing a bus/truck on him was silly, though. Frank himself has gone through a lot worse than merely that over the span of the series, and there's no reason that WM armor is better than Tony's. A week ago Tony lifted a submarine without issue.

Tony might be weakened.

I think something's wrong with his body after he returned as shown in tony stark: iron man chapter 2

But we would have to wait and see if it actually weakened him or not.

Though it was nice to see rhodey back in action. Diggin the new manticore battle suit and his roots as a pilot. I like seeing this dude in bulky ass armors (satellite armor) Poor dude has ptsd now tho :/

@morpheus_: That does sound better but Frank being able to stave off Carol, Cannonball and Thing all at once in his current gear is a bit too much. Tony's armour should be better than Frank's yet why did a truck take it out? Bad writing sounds like the cause.
