The Punisher hasn’t been this popular since his early nineties days of stealing jet-skis and kissing them goodbye, thanks to Jon Bernthal’s nuanced portrayal of Frank Castle in Netflix’s Daredevil.

All of the Marvel Cinematic Universe may be erupting into Civil War, but why can’t two heavy-hitters have a friendly talk? Daredevil Season 2 may answer that question, as new footage sees Matt Murdock and The Punisher using their words, rather than their fists.
Noted gun-haver and jet-ski enthusiast The Punisher is about to receive a fourth new lease on live-action life as he makes his debut in the second season of Netflix’s Daredevil, so this seems like a perfect time to take a gander at a small selection of the bullet-riddled art that Frank’s fans have blasted across the internet.
