    Not at all. Most of the Avengers wouldn't allow him to do his kinda Punishment. And he wouldn't work on a team lead by Norman Osborn.

    No. Punisher works best solo. He has no place on a superhero team anyway, and dislikes most super-types. He has no powers. Also: he would kill Osborn, if he could get to him.

    Yeah your right but what if they remade The Avengers with Punisher, Wolverine, Deadpool, Elektra, Blade, and Ghost Rider? I mean Wolverine could kill and Deadpool will kill

    The Punisher is not a superhero.

    NO, 

    Punisher's character is centered on being a loner who doesn't abide by the standards the most heroes follow.  Punisher on any team just would not fit.

    The Punisher's character is not really centered around being a loner..he just operates better when he can do what he wants with nobody holding him back or restrictions.If the Punisher had a parter or was part of a team with a bunch of vigilantes like him..he would be right at home.

    You should read the books where he is with Wolverine, or Joe Fixit, or even the current titles where he was just with Fool Killer.  He doesn't like having a partner, even if they share the same delivery of justice he has.

    I think Marvel wrote it for him to act that way with those people because they knew they wouldn't be permanent allies for him.Wolverine is too popular to be a Punisher sidekick.The Punisher isn't actually working alone right now..and he hasn't been for most of War Journal.

    Punisher is a better solo character and his comics are cooler when it is just him.An occasional team up could be good but he's not boy scout enough to be an Avenger.He stands for something that they don't.

    Hi i'm new and I saw this and thought i'd check it out. Yeah Punisher works best alone, I mean he kicks way more but alone, but I think that him teaming up with Ghost Rider for a few issues would be cool. As for being in The Avengers? Not the best idea for The Punisher.

    He rubs everyone the wrong way (even worse than Wolverine), his teammates could not trust him, and if he ever got the idea in his head to blow any one of them away he would try. Plus Wolverine would probably just end up killing him anyway.

    frank would never even want to be on the avengers. they wouldn't let him kill anyone. and as i recall, captain america (RIP) didn't even want him as part of the resistance movement during civil war after punisher killed two villains that were his allies.

    You'd be right about that dan6433, Cap beat the hell out of Frank and probably would have killed him if Frank had faught back, but because Frank respected the idea of Captain America, he wouldn't raise his hands to him.
