    I’ve been really enjoying the current run of Punisher. He used the old Ant-Man gear to help smuggle himself into the Hood’s club and exploded out of a guy that ate him in a bite of pizza. It was awesome!

    Is anyone here reading Punisher?

    I read this and its pretty good

    I really like Rick Remender and I hope his Doctor Voodoo is just as good.

    Not sure why we have to have Wolverine in yet another title. Albeit its not really Wolverine, but Daken is better than Logan in getting into freakin books :)

    Johnny Nepotism just doing the promo teaser? Or is he on the arc proper? If he’s in, I’m definitely out.

    Dakens third claw is pointing the wrong way…Well to be fair it has changed “shape” before.

    @Cmonocle
    Yeah im digging his use of random classic gadgets and gear.
    Are you reading “Suicide Kings” ?

    Daken is such a ludicrous character, even worse than X-23. I think Marvel should introduce four or five more Wolverine clones and/or children. They can all have healing powers and claws sticking out of random places on their bodies (claws growing out of the kneecaps! or the eyes!), and they can call themselves “the W-Men.”

      My friend Tom Grice (who is WRONG, sir! WRONG!) nailed Daken on the head by using a gaming analogy. Palladium Games used to have a quality called “MEGA-DAMAGE” which indicated that an attack/power/person/vehicle was SOOPER-powerful, which pretty much broke the game in terms of combat and attacks.

      Daken is, simply put, “Mega-Damage Wolverine.” (And this time? Tom got it right.)

    If you read the new Weapon X you’d see 4-5 Wolvie wannabees

    Thats sort of close :)

    Funny, I really hate Wolverine, but Daken and X-23 really don’t irritate me. In fact, I’d choose the son over the father any day of the week.

    Anybody think Frank Castle might actually die in 616 continuity? I always though Punisher worked best without supes in the mix.

      If he does, it’ll be short-lived.
