SCENARIO

The Punisher is in the exact same scenario as seen in Batman: Arkham Asylum. His mission is to make it through the Asylum and kill every villain he meets along the way (basically, all of the villains you meet in the actual video game). He must also go through the same tasks that Batman had to go through in the game (rescuing Commissioner Gordon, saving hostages, finding the Titan Formula, etc.)

RULES

-Morals are off for everyone.

-Punisher must kill every villain that he meets in the Asylum.

-None of the villains have any knowledge about Frank (Frank has no knowledge on their capabilities either). The villains are expecting Batman to show up. The exception to this is Joker, who has full knowledge on Frank.

-Punisher has the following equipment: M4 assault rifle (four clips); Glock 19 (two clips); P90 (one clip); two smoke grenades; one frag grenade; one flash grenade; one fully-functional replica of Batman's Cryptographic Sequencer (with knowledge on how to use it). Frank also has his usual Kevlar costume, as well as a comlink that allows him to communicate with Oracle. Finally, he has a special set of goggles that can duplicate Batman's "Detective Mode".

-If Punisher runs out of ammo, he is able to take ammunition from any thugs he kills.

-The Punisher starts out at the beginning of the Asylum. Joker has already gotten loose and is in his hideout.

Can Punisher make it to the end and take out Joker?

Yes he can

I think any street leveler can breeze through Arkham Asylum, most of Bats villains that are credible physical threats aren't even there

I havent played the games, but Punisher is no Batman. The Joker would have a field day with him.

hmmm, actually, if Frank was in Gothom, they would not need Arkham Asylum.

Honestly I don't think Croc would give him much of a challenge and I never knew Bane went to Arkham, I would assume he is not insane like the other rogues, yeah, I would bet he would have trouble with Bane though

Bane was in the game and that's the scenario we're going with.

Anyway, Frank makes it through in the absolute most brutal, bloody, terrifyingly GLORIOUS battle to ever grace this planet. He gets through the thugs, Bane, Croc, even Ivy, but will NOT come out unscathed.

Until he gets to Joker.

As OP said, Joker will know Frank is here, and honestly I don't think he'd be to happy with some commando with a death wish showing up instead of his bat. So Joker holds nothing back and, I'm afraid to say, will most likely end up killing Frank.

I give Frank a win of 6/10, just because he's the friggin Punisher, but it will NOT be easy. GOD do I want this game made...

Frank makes it to the final level, Joker keeping Gordon hostage.

All seems lost.

Batman decided to listen to Joker monologue.

But Frank just shoots Joker in the face.

The end.

How do you figure that? Since when does Punisher let civilians die, especially the police commisioner?

Not to mention OP stated he has Oracle on the line, and I doubt he'll let that girl go through what he went through when his own daughter (and wife) were murdered.

He makes it to the Bane level, it could go either way. When he fights the two goons hopped up on Titan at the end, he loses without a doubt IMO

Nope Punisher cant make it. No matter how you guys take or think it there are too much villians here some bullets wont stop many on his level and above. Nope he dies at some point .

#28 Posted by Pokeysteve (8671 posts) - - Show Bio

He would have trouble stealthily saving Gordon (the first time).

I'm thinking since he plans to kill everyone he won't even need to fight Croc. The whole point of that was to reverse the Titan transformation. If he's killing them then it's moot.

Ivy has the best chance.

Not sure how he'd do against Scarecrow. Can't shoot your way out of hallucinations.

And if he's going through the game just like Batman is than Frank kills Joker way before the end. Right around where you'd fight the first Titan thug towards the beginning. Joker dies before Bane haha.

Frank Castle aka PUNISHER for the win(s) here. He is... BRUTALY EFFICIENT! ;) BTW, Punisher fought an "Enhanced" Russian, and WON! "Enhanced" Russian >> Bane AND Killer Croc, put together! Seriously.

Punisher gets through most of it quicker than Batman, but Joker (who knows of Frank) would set a trap too clever for the Punisher

#34 Posted by TheCheeseStabber (8062 posts) - - Show Bio

The only things that really troubles me is

That a lot of the time in the game batman needs to use his cape and other gadgets to get passed place that he couldn't get past without.

Punisher needs silencers on his guns or he'll alert the henchmen who might kill hostages.

And how do the riddler challenges fit into this?

#35 Posted by Imagine_Man15 (1801 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think he would make it simply because, since he ISN'T Batman, Joker wouldn't hold anything back at all. A big part of the game was him stringing Batman along, toying with him. Frank wouldn't be as interesting of a player, because he doesn't exactly have a Batman-esque moral code. Joker would be bored with him very quickly and end his life.

Punisher 1 the new series, he shot a cop.

I've played parts of Gotham City, but not Asylum so I can't really comment decisively. I think Frank might be slightly underestimated here though. If given the ingame cues Bruce gets, upgrades and what have you, I don't see why Frank wouldn't clear. He carries his own list of gadgets these days ... and I can see Microchip feeding him intel from the sidelines etc. etc. (he dead again?)

PIS and CIS off, Frank is going to need bigger guns to get past Ivy. Give him 20 frags and I say he clears the game with medium difficulty.
