I mean he's been shot and stabbed God only knows how many times now and is still walking.  He's been hit by people who have gone toe to toe with Thor and has walked away from it.  Although him fighting spectre is quite a bit of PIS. 

 


 

 

Frank getting shot several times and still kicking ass like it's nothing. 

 
 



 

 
 



 

 
 



 

 
 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Frank getting hit by people that have fought Thor before and no Garth Ennis didn't write these stories. 

 
 



 

 
 



 

 
 



 

 
 


   So this begs the question is frank the toughest nonsuperhuman SOB in comics when it comes to pain tolerance?

His durability is probably the most exaggerated next to the Kingpin.

Has Kingpin ever been hurt as badly as the Punisher has though and kept on going?

I don't think Barracuda has taken as much Punishment as Frank or Fisk.However I can't say I remember much about the character from the last thing I read.My point being, I know who he is..Just can't remember anything that makes him comparable to the two characters in question.Care to refresh my memory?

He's been wailed on by class 20 Spider-Man,He's been shot 6 times in the chest without showing any signs of pain..in fact IIRC he was smiling.He's taken a pyrokenisis attack from Typhoid Mary..an attack we've seen burn regular people straight down to the skeleton, he's been stabbed repeatedly by hand Ninjas,launched out of windows of buildings over 10 stories,caught in explosions etc.

@Vance Astro: Barracuda has had his fingers chopped off, one of his eyes stabbed out, and strangled with barbed wire just shrugging it off. He doesn't even wince in pain. I used to have scans I'll see if I can find them.

If only marvel would do that.  If they did that though they would kiss the spiderman franchise goodbye.

It's very much worth noting that in that VS Sentry scan, a barb had stabbed into Frank's kidney. That he had fell on. From at least a story up.

Punisher get hit by flame attack similiar to Mary's.

 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 
On the first page I showed him fighting Hyde who is a 70 tonner and him throwing frank around and him walking away from it if you want I can post captain america slugging the Punisher and it not even hurting him and he's beaten spiderman before.  I don't have scans of Punisher and Spiderman getting into a fist fight where spiderman slugs him and frank takes it because I'm not spiderman fan and those type of fights happen in his comics.  If you want more pics of frank getting shot up I can load more of them for you if you want.

It was good however I liked the 10th issue of Punisher Dark Reign where the Hood thought he had Frank and he turns the tables on him at the end.  Which lead to Norman freaking out since the Hood failed miserably and couldn't go after the Punisher anymore which lead to the Daken fight.

Clearly almost none of that attack even touched him. "

What are you talking about?  He shoots it out through his hands and using his powers which were capable of burning people down to there bones he wasn't even hurting Frank using both hands channeling his power that's why he's screaming "Get 'Im off!  Geti 'Im off me!" in the second scan.

The only reason Frank got burned at all is because Firebrand grabbed him....Also Typhoid Mary is a pyrokinetic.She can burn someone with a thought.She doesn't have to shoot it out of her hands or touch anyone.

She could do it with a thought however frank held off firebrand trying to burn his arm off without showing any pain I doubt Mary would kill him with the attack and depending on how angry he is at the time it might not even faze him like firebrand didn't.

Frank tends to get hurt a lot in his comics compared to a lot of the other "regular humans" in comics.

Whatever Firebrand was trying to do isn't the issue.The fact of the matter is he didn't do anything.He grabbed Frank's wrists and the gloves he's wearing have no blemishes on them whatsoever.If Frank had actually been burned he would have been screaming..not Firebrand.
