“Welcome Back Frank” – The History of The Punisher


On this Character Breakdown we take a look at the history of The Punisher! This is actually part of our Character Corner on Daredevil/Elektra/Punisher, but we pulled out just the part on The Punisher. We break down the first appearance of Frank Castle, what makes the character tick and why we think the Netflix Punisher series has an uphill battle on its hands to make a 13 episode series based off of him. Check it out.
