One Marvel comic book character the woke mob has had the hardest time corrupting is Frank Castle, aka The Punisher. He’s a second amendment loving, vigilante, judge jury and executioner comic book icon whose trademark Skull has been seen the world over. Now marvel comic writer, Jason Aaron, is determined to retire the skull and replace it with this:
Yes, this Mandalorian looking rip off image now has horns and tusks, because nothing is less offensive than a demon skull that looks like a demented version of the Playboy bunny image.
Liberals flipped out when the image was being used by military, police and Trump supporters. Oddly they stayed quiet when BLM rioters burned American flags though.
Now Bleeding Cool can report a confirmation of our original report. That beginning this March, Frank Castle’s dark path will be revealed inPunisher, a new series years in the making that will mark the definitive culmination of Frank Castle’s journey in the Marvel Universe to date, building on his past to reveal his inescapable future. One of wokeness appropriation.
A prestige format 13-issue monthly oversized series written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Jesús Saiz and Paul Azaceta, exploring the past, present, and future of Frank Castle’s character and reveal where his motivations truly lie, each artist separately taking on Castle’s present day and Castle’s past through flashbacks.
Jason Aaron says “So many different groups have tried to appropriate the Punisher’s symbol and write their own story of what that symbol means, to match whatever their agenda. But they don’t get to define the story of this character. And it’s the character of Frank Castle that I’m interested in. His story has always been a dark and twisted tragedy, about a man consumed by war, for better or worse, no matter what sort of shirt he wears. And that’s exactly the kind of story we’re telling here.” Marvel EIC C.B. Cebulski says “The Punisher is not a hero or a role model, a fact that’s reinforced in the pages of our books. For readers who unpack Frank’s character, there’s a deep and compelling story about how his demons drive him to do terrible things that heroes would never do. And when you think about his story in that context, it directly contradicts how the Punisher has been appropriated.”
“A few years ago, Jason Aaron came into one of our creative summits with a pitch for Frank that made our collective jaws drop,” said C.B. Cebulski. “The story Jason is telling – a truly epic tale about darkness, violence, and choices – can only be told with the Punisher at its core. This series will build on Frank’s legacy while introducing us to a side of him we’ve never seen before, setting the stage for an evolution that we’ll find was inevitable.”
