Punisher: Hero or Villain?

Misunderstood Hero

I'm not much of a Punisher fan as I am of Spider-Man but since Spider-Man and Punisher ave busted heads with each other more than once I know that Punisher is more a hero than a villain.... Let me explain.

The first time most of us heard of the Punisher was in his first appereance on Amazing Spider-Man when the whole story is based aroud Frank Castle tryimg to kill Spidey. Of course he didn't kill him and after time and time again he tried to kill others. Now there is a very good recent story where the Punisher appears and no it's not "The Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe". It's Civil War.
In the Civil War story arc Spider-Man is almost killed by his villains but surrvives because of the person who, when we first saw tried to kill him. The Punisher saved Spidey a guy who he tried to kill before. Anyways the reason was because he wanted to join the Secret Avengers.

We all know Frank Castle has been a huge fan and admirer of Captain America so why would a villain admire a hero. I think The Punisher is a hero who has made bad choices in his life, what hero doesn't.

New Kingdom Hearts Games

I have a friend who has been wondering about the new games that will be coming out from the Kingdom Hearts series. Here's an overall description on what's going on:

-Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories comes out on December 2nd in the USA because it allready came out in Japan for PS2. A recreation of the Game Boy game that came out I think 2 years ago.

-Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep comes out on 2009 since this is pretty much the main game it's comming out later for PSP. The story is about how Ansems apprentice Xeonort becomes the evil Ansem and Xemnas. Characters like Riku, Namine and Roxas will appear but not Sora because it also takes place during his time asleep in the pod. New characters appear: Terra,

-Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days comes out later this year only in Japan, don't know if it will come out in the USA and it's for Nintendo DS. It tells the story of Roxas's  358 days  as part of Organization XIII. It incloudes a 14th member of the Organization named Xion who she claims to have ties with Kairi because they look alike.

-Kingdom Hearts: Coded comes out only in Japan later this year for cell phones. It tells the story of Mickey and Jimminy Cricket who find a note on one of the journals: "We must return to free them of their torment". Mickey creates a Sora out of data to have him retrace his steps to what is it that note means http://www.square-enix.co.jp/kingdom/coded/

-Kingdom Hearts: Mobile is for cell phoes too but it's all mini games not at all tied to the series. I don't Know when it comes out but here http://www.square-enix.co.jp/mobile/kh/

"We must return to free them from their torment"- KH: Coded
- Kingdom Hearts 3.............. Well all that has been revealed about it was what the creator, Tesuya Namura, has said in an interview:

"Hmm... I have an idea but it can't be helped because my team are planning to work on our next different title. So we're not working on KHIII now and we're not planning to work on it for some time, too. I have a plot in my head but I'm not sure if it'll be released to the world or just stay in there"

"My own feelings are that I would like to give Sora a break from large adventures for a little while. In the ending of Kingdom Hearts II, there was a scene where Sora received a letter from the King; for Sora, I would like you to consider this as a new beginning."

I don't have more about the future games I can tell you though that if you wanna search for yourself go here: http://kh2.co.uk/ (This where I get all my information!!)
