PUNISHER VS. BROOD QUEEN! The man who lives to punish the foulest parasites of humanity. The most monstrous parasite in the galaxy. Zero gravity. Zero &$%# given. It’s the PUNISHER versus a BROOD QUEEN like you’ve never seen before, because this time, Earth’s own Frank Castle’s got a rocket. Who put Castle in the cockpit, and how will he and his muckraking stowaway – J. JONAH JAMESON (???) – tolerate each other long enough to survive? Only Karla Pacheco (Rick and Morty) and Adam Gorham (NEW MUTANTS: DEAD SOULS, ROCKET, The Violent) have the answers you NEED!
An investigation is underway by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police department regarding officers who published “concerning” images and statements on social media. A police union has asked its members to post the “blue lives Punisher logo” to show support for those officers.
Clark seems to ignore the fact the Punisher is a vigilante who works outside of law enforcement and unlike police officers tries not to kill innocent individuals. In the comics, the character is a vet whose family is killed by the mob for witnessing a crime. He then seeks revenge in a one man war against crime.
The St. Louis Police Police Chief John Hayden released a memo that indicates he has a better understanding of the character. In it, he states the logo “does not coincide” with the department’s “mission to protect life and property and achieve a peaceful society.”
A project cross-referenced police officers with their social media posts uncovering racist and anti-Muslim posts implicating 22 officers. The city’s chief prosecutor has added those officers to a list the officer won’t take cases from.
The Punisher’s creator Gerry Conway has spoken out on the subject:
Whether you think the Punisher is justified or not, whether you admire his code of ethics, he is an outlaw. Police should not be embracing a criminal as their symbol.
The Punisher himself addressed the issue in a recent comic:
Marvel has been silent over the use of their intellectual property.
