- Punisher Saves Spider-Man Takes Beating From Captain America – Civil War
In the comic that will be inspiring this year’s blockbuster Marvel film, Civil War featured Castle in an important moment. Two villains corner spider-Man after being severely injured, but before he could be killed by these villains Castle dispatches of the two of them and rescues Spidey. Shortly afterwards Castle brings him back to Captain America’s base of operations. Cap is hesitant about having Castle on the team, but reluctantly lets him join. Later on in the story 2 villains come to join the cause and Punisher kills them in cold blood. Cap begins to brutally beat his as he screams at Castle to fight back, but Castle refuses because of his respect for Cap. This is a fantastic moment in the comic that not only shows how far off Cap is acting, but also shows Castle’s code of ethics. It’s a powerful and memorable moment.
The Punisher is one of my favorite characters and these are just some of his great moments. He’s an anti-hero that has left his mark among comic book fans and I have no doubt that his popularity will only grow with Daredevil Season 2 premiering. He’s already given us a bonus awesome moment with Jon Bernthal’s delivery of the line “You’re one bad day away from being me.”
