Comic characters don't age. He is probably late 30's early 40's

How in the hell did he serve in Vietnam if he's 36/37?? That's a pretty bad oversight, even with Marvel's sliding timeline.

The Punisher is younger than Iron Man...Iron Man was 38/39 during Civil War.So there is no way he's over 40.

Oh, Marvel continuity, you cut-up. If Punisher only served in the last year of the Vietnam war he would have been like 5-7 years old haha.

It's possible the reason people seem younger than they should be...may have something to do with Heroes Reborn.Most of Marvel's main heroes should be at least 60 or older by real world time.

He should have logically been 5 but he wasn't.

Just imagine an X-Babies style Frank Castle running around the jungles of Vietnam tearing it up.

The punisher's first appearance was in 1974.. so he's 34?

I saw this T on ebay and they had all his stats except for his age

subtracting 1974 by 2008 is not how you figure out how old he is.

Yeah Spider-man was a teenager in the 60's and he's in his late 20's now so it's not real time.

depends. MAX says hes born in 1950. i prefer to think he stays 47 forever.

@kev17: According to MAX, His wife Maria was born 1948 and killed 1976. So, he HAD to be already 30 back then, he was a giant muscle, he has been at war many times and so on and so on - even 25 was impossible. 30 is absolute minimum and i mean - minimum. 40 would be far more accurate. But then he's supposed to be 70 now. And he didn't change a bit since 1976. And his wife could not be much older. I thing she was in fact younger than him.
It COULD be because of his contract with some kind of evil force in Punisher: Born, where he agreed to be given opportunity to never quit war like he always wanted, but then the voice in his head said that for that it's going to take his family, but the memories of this were deleted from Castle's mind in an instant, so he wasn't able to prevent their deaths.
but why was it never mentioned again?

@Vallary:
Well i dont know about all that, im just going by what ive read about him. i dont mean he stays 47 for an eternity or anything, but that just seems the perfect age for him.

the punisher was in Vietnam so it was either 1968 or 1969 that the started so he would be been at least 18 years old to be drafted in the so since its now 2014 he would be 61 or 62 years old now

Frank's war experience was retconned to the Middle East.

He's in his 30's or 40's at most.
