Just when you thought Marvel couldn’t come up with another character to pair with Deadpool, they’ve gone and done it. It’s not Spider-Man, nor is it Wolverine or Howard the Duck. No, this time Deadpool will take on the Punisher – I’m guessing he will be the straight man of the group.
Frank Castle – a man of unstoppable will, and a powerful desire to punish those who do wrong, rooted in the tragic killing of his family. Wade Wilson – the mercenary with the unstoppable mouth, and an knack for annoying those around him, rooted in the thought that he’s funny. An old friend from Deadpool’s past, codename: The Bank, has re-emerged. With financial ties to criminal operations all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before Frank Castle looks to put an end to The Bank once and for all. Just one problem, Deadpool isn’t going to let that happen without a fight!
Writer Fred Van Lente is penning the tale, with Pere Prez providing the art. Deadpool vs. The Punisher #1 kicks off the five issue mini-series in April.
