  1. I put this in the “Who gives a ___?” department or the “I really REALLY want to be Alex Ross” shelf. A boobless Electra giving a lap dance to a grey templed Frank Castle shouts “WE CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING!>>>>>NOW!!!”

  2. Who is that with Elektra? Someone above seems to think it must be Punisher, and I suppose it is possible, but I don’t think he is quite that well-muscled.

    Looks more like Luke Cage to me.

      He’s got the Punisher skull on his shirt. It just blends in with the overwhelming red of Elektra’s outfit.

  3. Yay! I’ve been waiting for this pairing since…oh. Wait. Could. Care. Less. Plus, as if it mattered, it’s a really bad characterization of both characters. The Punisher working with assassins to begin with makes very little sense…

    Marvel U. (sans Daredevil and Hawkeye) is a mess. Not as bad as the new 52 (sans Batman and GL books), but a huge, huge mess. 2 X-Forces? 3+ Avengers teams, 3+ X-Men teams, 2 Thunderbolts teams? 2 Nick Fury’s…oh wait three counting his self-aware LMD, “Max Fury” (ugh), 2 Hulks, 2 She-Hulks, 2 sons of Hulk, 2 FFs and the Future Foundation… I am waiting for the story that brings us a Yellow Galactus and 8 more Thanoses. Plus, a silly Spidey story that will be reversed by the time Jaime Foxx (really?) is ready to play Electro in the Amazing Spider-Man 2. Real plots and characterization anyone? Anyone? And the Ultimate U. is careening off a cliff. No wonder they resort to shock tactics to sell.

    Here’s a thought: write one, at the most, two really strong Avengers and X-Men books and consolidate the sales from the lesser brands that no one cares about (Avengers Academy, X-Men Legacy, Astonishing X-Men, etc.).

    Sorry for the rant, but the above is just another example of why I skim through Marvel U. books in the store and don’t buy them anymore.
