Gerry Conway Wants to Take Back the Punisher Logo and is Raising Money for Black Lives Matter

The Punisher skull logo has been adopted by the police and their supporters despite the character being a vigilante working outside of the law. The extrajudicial handling of crime seems to be the draw with the symbol blended with the “Blue Lives Matter” coloring and displayed in support. The symbol has been seen sported by police recently and has a long history within the police. Disney and Marvel have done nothing to curtail the use of the symbol as it’s been coopted and proliferated online and in the real world.

The Punisher debuted in 1974 and was created by Gerry Conway, John Romita, Sr., and Ross Andru. The character debuted as a villain targeting Spider-Man and over the years has generally evolved into an anti-hero though his exact depiction has varied. Conway has been vocal against the use of the symbol by the police and others and is currently attempting to take the symbol back.

The comic creator has launched a charity fundraising effort through CustomInk where the sales will benefit Black Lives Matter.

For too long, symbols associated with a character I co-created have been co-opted by forces of oppression and to intimidate black Americans. This character and symbol was never intended as a symbol of oppression. This is a symbol of a systematic failure of equal justice. It’s time to claim this symbol for the cause of equal justice and Black Lives Matter.
–Gerry Conway

Currently, over $24,000 has been raised for the organiztion through four designs and over 1,800 shirts sold.

You can get an awesome shirt now for a good cause and help “take back” the Punisher from those who clearly don’t understand the character.

The New Mutants Get a New Release Date

New Mutants

Will we finally get to see The New Mutants on the big screen? Disney is sticking to theaters for the release of the seemingly cursed film and has announced it’ll get a release on August 28. The film has had a string of delays, the latest due to COVID-19.

The movie was initially to be released April 2018 and then was pushed to February 2019. Then it got moved to August 2019. Then Disney bought Fox and it was moved again to April 3, 2020. Then COVID-19 hit.

The film is the last of the Fox produced X-Men films and follows the bomb that was X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

The New Mutants was rumored to be released digitally. First rumors swirled it’d debut on Hulu and at one point showed up on Amazon for pre-order.

But… will theaters even be open in August? Las Vegas needs to have a betting line as to when, and how, this film will be released.
