Elite is little known Punisher villain but he was such a great villain and I’d say he’s my favorite Punisher enemy. Essentially he was a bad ass yuppie who hated poor people and would gun down gangbangers with ease. There were different characters who were Elite and both were good. Read the Welcome Back Frank story arc for the first Elite and the Resurrection of Ma Gnucci for the second Elite. If you liked Garth Ennis Marvel Knights Punisher run I promise you won't be disappointed.

@cody1984: I have never read any Punisher stories. xP

So I can't really say much about the Marvel Knights Punisher, since I might not have even HEARD of him.

If you haven't read any of Punisher's comics before I'd recommend Welcome Back Frank. It's a 12 issues and a good read. If your not a fan of black comedy or don't like seeing a lot of violence in comics you probably won't like it since the black comedy and violence level is extremely high. The one nice thing about the Elite character is that he shows up in just welcome back frank and the resurrection of Ma Gnucci and not a bunch of single appearances across many issues so it makes reading about the character much easier than other villains who appear sporadically across different series.

You picked all these guys because they look cool. :P

@Decoy Elite: No, only Valin. I don't remember why I was interested in Elite, but I probably had a reason. >_>

Carom is a fairly mysterious speedster, but I've never seen him in any substantial role.

Radiant appeared in Chase, but only for an issue. He seems like an interesting character, even from that brief appearance.

Likewise, I saw Wild Dog in Booster Gold, but as it was an alternate timeline he was quite quickly killed off. I don't know about his main continuity stuff.

You know what, on second thought this is probably accurate. :P
