i think people tend to overlook him because he is human in a superhuman world,he is a skilled fighter who can hold his own

he is very underrated

He gets about as much respect as he deserves. He's great, yeh, but he's not one of the best.

I think he's underrated, he has the least amount of power and equipment, but he's more effective than most superheroes at what they try to do.

Overrated. He's Batman with guns and a killer's instinct.

I think he is underrated. He is an excelent fighter and very tactical if he could always do some prep work after the fights he could possibly make a stand to some supervillains. He can't get along with other superheroes because of his way of "dealing things" and that's a big issue.

Overrated  and underrated in what? Popularity? If it's in popularity, he gets as much popularity as he deserves.

I respect your opinion, but do you care to elaborate on the Batman part? there are more differences than similarities between Frank and Batman, never understood why people say he's Marvel's response to Batman,call him Batman with guns(That would be the Shadow, the precursor to Batman) or Batman if he made the decision to kill, even early Batman that made the decision to kill and use guns has absolutely nothing in common with the Punisher.

I think a lot of people don't like him because often, he simply shoots his enemies and they say "There's not much to him." My brother thought not, at least.

@ZORN: Well now that I think more about it, the main reason I said what I said is because they have very similar origins and motivations. Batman sees his family die in front of him, Punisher sees his family in front of him. Batman makes a vow to stop crime, Punisher makes a vow to stop crime. Batman is psychotic (and I will defend that to the death), Punisher is most likely psychotic. He's already a mass murderer and thinks he's doing the right thing by it... but yeah, Batman's a better fighter and a lot smarter than Frank, but what Batman doesn't have is the motivation to kill and just be brutal as all hell. I like both characters, but I always just felt Punisher would be a better movie than a comic book. I guess my judgement is just sh*tty because they tried it 3 times and failed all of them.  
 
Either way, thank you for respecting my opinion, and I respect yours back.

@Gambit1024: I agree with you almost everything you said but imo i don't believe Batman and the Punisher are psychopaths. I think sociopaths is their profile.That's my humble opinion of course.

I think he is underutilized more often than not, but is neither particularly underrated or overrated.

I think he's just perfect the way he is.
