Marvel Reveals Plans For Punisher, Daredevil and Spider-Man Crossover

What happens when three heroes set their sights on the same goal? Will they clash or learn to work as a team?

Marvel started the day off by teasing fans with the reveal of a gorgeous teaser image by artist Marco Checchetto, cluing fans into the publisher's plans for an upcoming crossover involving Daredevil, Punisher and Spider-Man. Now, more details have arrived.

The event will be pitting some of Marvel's coolest characters against one another. According to Marvel Editor Steve Wacker, Daredevil has been given a device that makes him "the most powerful man alive," and who better than Frank Castle to target and take down the most powerful man alive? The stories will be roped together through the most recent events in Daredevil. In the series' sixth issue, Matt acquires secret information on the Marvel Universe's biggest criminal organizations. According to Daredevil writer Mark Waid, "Matt is trying to figure out the best application for this thing when Frank Castle knocks on the door." PUNISHER writer Greg Rucka delved a bit deeper into the premise of the upcoming story that will lead the two characters to cross paths.

When Frank finds out about the drive and what's on it, he figures he should have that. 'I can keep it safe and I can use it properly.' Matt hears that as 'I can keep it safe and I can use it to kill lots of people.' So you see the conflict immediately.

So how does Spider-Man get thrown into the mix? As a trusted member of the FF, Reed Richards asks Spider-Man to retrieve the device that he created which holds all that secret information from Daredevil. Chances are, Spidey won't be accomplishing his mission without having to deal with The Punisher, first.

== TEASER ==

The crossover will be launching in Avenging Spider-Man #6, co-written by both Mark Waid (DAREDEVIL) and Greg Rucka (THE PUNISHER). The crossover will be a three issue story total, one issue featured in each of the series. Based on what you know about these characters and their respective egos, do you think they will be able to put their pride to the side and work together; or will it be just one all out brawl? If the latter, who would win?

Says the DC fanboy bitching in the comments of every Marvel article posted on the site. Grow up.

And as someone who reads all these titles I can't wait, would rather it have taken place in Daredevil but still sounds great.

Do you not think it should have been Moon Knight instead of Spiderman?

Now this is what I'm talking about. All three titles are great and it ties right into Daredevil. Can't wait.

I don't read Moon Knight, so I could be wrong, but Spiderman makes much more sense to me. The Information DD has is stored on a piece of Reed's unstable molecule suit stuff, Reed wants it back, sends Spiderman. It would be strange if Spiderman wasn't involved in the hunt.

I like.

The first cover is mind blowing, that said I will be passing it up completely

WOW! Been a while...ok fine since "Shadowland" but still!

I know but DD, Moon Knight and Punisher have got that whole Big Shots thing going and I thought it would br good for the characters to have them all together also it says Black Specter on that second poster and he's a Moon Knight villain

I have never enjoyed any of the Daredevil/Punisher crossovers in the past and I don't read any of the Spider-comics, but this sounds interesting. Hard to trade wait it because there is no telling which ongonig it will be collected with.

Posted by ColonelRunAway

A darker storyline crossing over with the Spidey books?

...I find your lack of Scarlet Spider disturbing.

cant wait for this 
 
i just stumbled on to the live blog today and was blown away !!!!!

Both of the big two need to stop trying to boost sales through over saturation of characters appearances and dilution of story.

I'd rather read a good single character driven story than a crappy story with multiple good characters, which is what they tend to be producing these days.

Now it seems like the niche is to make everyone battle each other, regardless of the sensibility of the story behind it.

It's not to say this will or won't be a decent arc in the history of these characters, it's just my observation that the decision making behind some of this strategy seems predictable and a bit desperate.

so that's what that poster was that i saw earlier today

looks good

Interesting...

Could be great. Could be disappointing. Art looks fantastic though. And I love all three characters so I'm more than willing to give this a shot.

I agree

Marvel is OD'ing with the vs. stuff and it's getting on my nerves.

dios! vaya combo! pinta muy bien!

Posted by Teerack

This reminds me of Deadpool suicide knights which was basically about a team up of Deadpool, Spidey, DD, and the Punisher. I loved suicide knights and I've always loved the urban heroes so i'm excited about this.

The book was called "Suicide Kings"

Yep. Cashing in and cashing out. =P

Those are some awesome covers!  
 
Seems like Marvel is trying to make all their heroes fight each other this year. Avenger Vs X-Men and now this....Not exactly the direction I would have anticipated them taking

Posted by jubeiyagyuX

Waid,Rucka and Checchetto all on one book eh? Well,go on then.....

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

This is REALLY intriguing me right now...

Posted by cobra88king8

oddly I'm ok with this. As long as they don't make Frank seem like a total monster I'll probably enjoy it

Posted by Mumbles

since i get two of the three books, i'm in.

Posted by stu

looks awesome to me! also the art is amazing!

Posted by hitechlolife

Loving Waid's current fondness for neat, old school crossovers.

Posted by Maniac2312

ARRG! Now I have to buy ANOTHER Spider-Man book?? ........Been wanting to check out the new Punisher book anyway.

Edited by Jordanstine

Daredevil is probably the most underrated best book right now, thanks to Mark Waid.

If Waid is going to be writing this, SOLD.

Posted by Deadcool

Cool!

Posted by danhimself

these are the kind of mini event/crossovers that Marvel needs to do more of....we don't need a 6 issue event book for every crossover...a simple 3 issue story that interconnects between 3 books works just fine

Posted by VanAce

I am already reading Daredevil and Punisher so I will be reading this. Both Waid and Rucka are doing a great jobs on their books.

Hopefully this converts some of the the Spiderman fans to Punisher and Daredevil.

Also I wonder if all 3 parts will come with a download code or if it will only be Avenging Spiderman?

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

I am excited to see some good crossovers. I just hope they do a good job with the stories but I will give some of the issues a try. Especially the Spidey crossovers.

Posted by Sky_Jokiel

This title should read "Marvel Plans on putting all three comics together so that the readers have to spend more money or there is no point in buying any of them"

Posted by microwave25

Why why the need for these crossovers. I rarely enjoy them and they just seem unnecessary, Marvel seem to have an obsession. Leave Daredevil be, he was doing just fine on his own!

Posted by Grifter21

seems good so far, I would like to see another Wolverine, Punisher and Ghost Rider team-up.

Posted by SilverHammerMan

Marvel? Doing a crossover in less that eight parts? Ludicrous!

Looks cool though.

Posted by longbowhunter

Since I already buy 2 outta the 3 titles I'm fine with this. Really looking forward to it actually.

Posted by redhood21

seeing as how daredevil's book is awesome and Rucka's punisher is incredible i dont see why people are buggin about this crossover.

Posted by KEROGA

greatest marvel crossover!!!

Posted by Pokeysteve

Punisher hasn't really done anything in his new series yet.

Posted by daredevil21134

I could care less i'm really not digging Mark Waid on DD
