Batman would lock him up.

There's been a couple comics but I absolutely can't remember how their interaction went.  Also it wouldn't be as accurate as it should be.  Since they were inter-company crossovers, they'd want to make sure each company was happy with the way things went.

I don't think Batman would be too happy with Frank running around,even if he was blasting away at villains.

Well Punisher is like a more driven Batman, someone who uses extreme measures to get the job done, Batman won't kill and Punisher will so they would be enimies

Batman would just hunt down The Punisher like he did Phantasm in the movie.

#6 Posted by Mr. Punisher (154 posts) - - Show Bio

Exactly Punisher's tactics are to murderous for Batman's tastes

#7 Posted by Shonen (692 posts) - - Show Bio

I think batman would hunt down castle because if he kills all the bad guys batman would be out of the job and won't be badass anymore and you know batman can't have that.

#8 Posted by Mr. Punisher (154 posts) - - Show Bio

No. Because Punisher is a killer and Batman hates killers

Yep and that would just make Frank Castle just another crazy bad guy in Batman's eyes. I'd love to see Bruce throw his ass into Arkham Asylum. lol

i remember a crossover where Punisher was about to kill the Joker and Batman swooped down to stop him...so im gonna say that Bats isnt going to like Punisher running around shooting bad guys left and right

#11 Posted by Mr. Punisher (154 posts) - - Show Bio

Bats vs Punisher = dead  Batman

#12 Posted by King Saturn (224025 posts) - - Show Bio
I think The Punisher could knock off at least half of Gotham City's Criminals... before Frank would really have to deal with The Dark Knight...
#13 Posted by Mr. Punisher (154 posts) - - Show Bio

Well he would kill Batman anyway because he's willing to kill Bats isn't

#14 Posted by Resonate (15054 posts) - - Show Bio

Present tense would all but be forgotten

#15 Posted by Marvel Knight (1270 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman(Bruce Wayne) would try to stop him. They would probably work together every once and awhile, but in the end Batman would turn on Punisher.

#16 Posted by God's Son (31 posts) - - Show Bio

He would be trying to break out of Arkham right now.

#17 Posted by Nighthunter (28582 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm sure Joker would like a roomie...

There would probably be nothing left of him in that cell.Frank doesn't mind killing people who dress up like clowns.Jester knows first hand....
#19 Posted by Venom Man (13 posts) - - Show Bio

In Batman TAS he had a villian made for the show Lock Up and he just locked crooks up in tiny cells and Bats had a problem with it, so he would for sure have a problem with Frank running around shooting the town up.

#20 Posted by Venom Man (13 posts) - - Show Bio

Oh and tortured them

#21 Posted by The Man of Yesteryear (5502 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman would bust his ass.

#22 Posted by Kid Anarchy (1033 posts) - - Show Bio

it would be cool to see Punisher go up against Deadshot though...

#23 Posted by bringdeath (270 posts) - - Show Bio

hey hey lets get somethin straight here in the comics punisher actually was close enough to batman skill he beat him and almost put a bullet through one of the jokers eyes ..... so take that u punisher h8ers!!!!!!!!

Batman is too quick, intelligent, and is at peak physical condition.
 
The Punisher is a guy with a gun. Short work for Batman.
#25 Posted by Lunacyde (18632 posts) - - Show Bio

They better put Frank in solitary at Arkham or he would just start taking down criminals from the inside....Thatd be an interesting book.

Batman would win in the end but the Punisher is FAR more than a man with a gun.
#27 Posted by castleking (24119 posts) - - Show Bio

if pun lived in gotham arkum asylum would be empty thats for sure.. it probably come down to bats and pun in a face with pun choosing the locationand it would end up in a stalemate resulting in frank killing bats and himself by some suicidal trap...

Hey what about Vigilate? Punisher and Vigilante Vs Bats and Nightwing would be sweet

Hahaha! You don't know much about the Punisher huh? The Punisher is in peak condition just as much as Batman, now he may not be as fast and smart but he can hold his own against the Bat. His not just a guy with a gun. Batman got a taste of Punisher's fist a few times when they fought. Punisher is almost just as good in hand-to-hand combat as Batman, now I will admit Batman is better then Punisher in hand-to-hand but not by much. Punisher has engaged 24 guys in a fist fight and killed each one of them. I know Batman has done the same but without killing anybody.

well lets say just Punisher is there, not saying they traded off but frank is the one fighting crime in gothham

almost every villian would be dead

joker might be the fist one lol




#31 Posted by Mr. Punisher (154 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah Joker first to go

Joker, Penguin, Riddiler, Killer Croc, Two Face, would be his first targets

hopefully not dent

#37 Posted by Mr. Punisher (154 posts) - - Show Bio

Please he'd be one of the first to go

#38 Edited by Detective (524 posts) - - Show Bio

Batman would eventually catch The Punisher getting rid of villains. i could see Batman trying to talk to The Punisher about using different methods to catch criminals but if he dosen't comply Bats would eventually bring him down.

#39 Posted by biobroli (2 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Punisher is underrated.  He's not just a guy with a gun, he's held is own against pretty much everyone.  In the end, I think Batman would find a way to neutralize the situation, but it would be far from easy.

There is a site that has the top 100 comic characters.  The polls just opened, so everything is really close right now.  I voted for Batman's in the top 10 right now, and Punisher's rated around 14th place.  Hopefully some educated comic fans can get in there and help turn the tide for the greatest comic characters of all time!  Check it out.

Punisher 14th? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This entire post is full of fail

Frank isnt anywhere near as fast strong agile or intelligent as Bats and he isnt even in the same league in hand to hand combat
Frank cant hold his own at all, a h2h fight would last a few seconds before Bats beat him unconsious

#43 Posted by Bullseye1930 (74 posts) - - Show Bio

Even though DC would never let it happen I say Frank could beat Batman. Frank is very good at shooting people in the head and I doubt Batman's cowl is bulletproof.

#44 Posted by SUNMAN (7228 posts) - - Show Bio

Gotham would be much safe

#45 Edited by kev17 (332 posts) - - Show Bio

oh can you imagine frank in arkaham? i would pay moneyand plenty of it for that one.  
 
i think if he went to gotham , bats would make it priority to stop him, even if he is targeting criminals. bats is just like that; he hates murderers. 
 
 i can imagine these two badasses fighting a MAX style world. so cool. personnaly id love to see pun slice nightwings throat but never mind. 
 
 but theres no way frank would be able to kill either bats or joker.  there both to clever for punisher, who has only one agenda really. two face maybe.
#46 Posted by PurpleCandy (773 posts) - - Show Bio

Deffidently enemies, Punisher will see Batman as compeition or interference, while Batman will see him as too ruthless. It will be just like the animated movie "Red Hood" ofcourse without Jason Todd and stuff.

#47 Posted by DaveThePunisher (21 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it would probably go down like any Punisher vs Spider-Man match-up. Frank COULD easily just shoot Spider-Man or Batman in the head.... snipe them from 500 yards out... or find out who they are and where they live and just blow up their house. BUT Frank isn't some crazy serial killer... he only kills the criminals. He probably COULD... but WOULD NOT kill Batman. Best case, Frank knocks out Batman and that's it. Worst case, Batman locks up Frank and he just cleans out Arkham (like everyone has been saying) and then escapes.

Assume Frank views Batman as a criminal that needs to be killed. Frank would EASILY kill Batman. Even if Batman wins 20 straight fights and puts Frank in prison 20 straight times, that 21 first time Batman could catch a bullet to the face. Frank won't stop coming for Batman and eventually Frank would win.

Punisher would kill all the bad guys the first day in town except Joker.

#49 Posted by JSH92 (414 posts) - - Show Bio

There would be a lot fewer Arkham Inmates.

#50 Edited by ChillinVillain (157 posts) - - Show Bio

People arguing for Punisher beating Batman talk like Batman hasn't gone up against people willing to kill him or able to shoot really well. Batman would stomp all over his ass if they went head to head, and this nothing to with all that "BatGOD never loses" nonsense. It simply comes down to this: Batman is leagues smarter, a better tactician, has better equipment, is in better shape, and is FAR more skilled.
