the historical setting for Born had me and you get to see angles of Frank you didnt even consider. Was he a good father? Was he always a killer and he would have ended up a vigilante if his family didnt die? For a punisher story theres a lot of character exploration which was good. Year one tells a story we know in an awesome way and I love it, but I went with Born.
Kaine is far better than spidey as all Scarlet spiders are :D I have been buying this for Kaine, but I'm just not sold on the stories or the team.... the only ones I'd keep in a roster shake up are Nova, Kaine, and speedball.
I think national pride has gone out the window and the popular thing to do is for Americans to hate America for no other reason than everyone in Europe is doing it.....I dont always agree with the government and we do make mistakes, but I love this country and should we get in to some crazy war with crazy foreign leaders (looking at you putin) id die for my country and the freedoms its people are entitled to.
I just wish we didnt have mr vacation in office who is always somehow away golfing while shtuff is hitting the fan :/ but i wont go in to that
aside from beetle they can't really handle hand to hand, certainly not a fighter of Jasons caliber. Jason should be able to take these clowns as much as i love them...especially if Todd had time to prep and study them then it should be all ogre now.
keep in mind the man has fought batman to a stand still, easily beat damien and dick by fighting a little dirty, annnnnnd nearly killed tim drake without really trying. Hi time asa villain appears to still be canon so its safe to assume all that still happened. The superior foes only feats are being easily dispatched by spiderman, even if they worked well together for once they all lack skill :/
