You know, I haven't dissed on the Punisher in quite a while. I must be slipping!
So here is a long overdue reminder, especially to those who think that the Punisher is super-cool and his "one-man war on crime" is the bee's knees and all that:
That's why real heroes don't kill, don't play judge-jury-and-executioner--sometimes you get the wrong guy. And if you kill the wrong guy, well, you really can't walk that back.
And that 's why those Death Wish lovin' diehard Punisher fans who insist that Frank Castle would never, even accidentally or by some collateral damage, kill an innocent man...well, he almost did in his very first appearance. So get over it.
That's why the best use for the Punisher...
