I vote hammers and shields to be destroyed.

Oh my goodness, what a completely unexpected and new series of events! I wonder if Spider man will die, unable to resist his arch-nemesis Venom? Will they be able to deactivate the bomb on time? Stay tuned true believers!

Cool, DC Thunderbolts.

Solomon Grundy needs a twitter, and it should be nothing but absolutely poetic or insightful musings.

@ cody1984

And I think you are misunderstanding what I mean by that. I mean he states he is killing monsters and murderers, when he himself is the very thing he hunts. If his ideal self was to go hunting his ultimate prey, it'd be his actual self. The person in the most dire need of "punishment" in Frank Castle's eye, is the Punisher.

@cody1984The last notable times I can think of Punisher killing misdamenor criminals or basically... anyone not deserving death. A couple of instances come off the top of my head.-First appearance with spiderman, he murders a pair of purse snatchers.- Civil war he just plain murders a bunch of registered  very minor super villains who were simply sitting in line- Pretty much all the people he kills. Sure he gets the occasional murderer (Possibly deserving capitol punishment, debatable) The case and point is that if he really wanted to kill the biggest monster in any of his stories, he'd shoot himself.

 If memory serves me right he was drugged by Jigsaw when he did that.  

Him murdering super villains is surprising or evil how exactly?  

I'm sorry but the whole he should kill himself argument is stupid.  He's killed a lot of monsters that have really deserved what they got the slavers story arc is a perfect example of this.  Like I said before the guy is definitely no hero but he is not monster that some people make him out to be.  He's a very human adult character that in 616 is surrounded by a bunch of characters that get played off as boy scouts yet they do pretty horrible things that end up killing a lot of innocent people like the final battle in the civil war story that killed dozens of innocent bystanders yet for their labeled as heroes go figure.   

The murder of the minor super villains standing in line was surprising because it was unwarranted, and evil because it was completely unjust and in the wrong.  Not all villains deserve death, just as not all heroes deserve to continue going. Frank Castle being a great example of that. If you feel an argument is "Stupid" you should probably provide some proof to the matter, otherwise it just sounds silly or you're going for an off the cuff trolling attempt, which I doubt you actually are.

But in response to the rest of your argument, irrelevant, we aren't talking about any other hero at the moment, just punisher. What spiderman or captain america does is different. If you want to use them in argument, here's a critical difference, when someone get's hurt on Spidey's watch, he's remorseful because he's failed his duty as a hero. Punisher simply goes to find more people to kill. Further, if Jigsaw drugged Punisher (which I read it again, he didn't) that would complicate the logic used by punisher even more. If he can be let off for murder due to the fact that he was drugged, does he have to let off all the other people he's killed because they were on drugs? Nope, he murders them without checking. He just murders, doesn't matter his logic, he is simply a mass murderer, there's no greater good or logic in it. There would be no good in the world if everyone handled thing like punisher, thankfully, no one does.

Yeah, lol, I can't help but see across the board how Videogames are slowly tanking in quality, when Tabletops keep rising. Check out the huge success that is HeroClix for instance. Bring on the comic themed board games!

The punisher is simply the worst hero of all time. He's an insane mass murderer with the ethics capacity of a 5 year old. He kills innocents all the time. He kills people for misdamenors. Here's another fun one, when he was blending in with Neo Nazi's he beats his friend's fiance' to death with a crowbar, and then afterward ends up just shooting the Neo Nazi's. There you go. Killed innocents, kills everyone. No morals, no logic. Just  an awful character.

Since no one can use their fingers to search on the web before coming up with an off the cuff answer.

Now, modern cinema seems to think that the upside down cross is sacrilegious, but like most modern cinema, they are stupid.  The inverted cross is the sign of St. Peter, who was to be crucified and felt that he could not be martyred in the same way as Christ, believing he was unworthy, so he was inverted and crucified upside down, and the cross inverted is not only his symbol, but also the symbol of the early faith of the apostolic church, and the sign of Peter, the st of.... wait for it.... waaaiiit for it.... justice.

For more on St. Peter, check the most standard and dubious method, wikipedia

Or, actually go read a book. I highly suggest  any of the following. Thank you for bothering to listen to my rant, I am merely a historian and I feel as if the American education system has failed you all, not your own fault for getting all your info from movies, we should have an education system which actually educates, but that's for another blog.
