The Punisher, by comparison, is a character who has been much more consistently depicted as being a serious danger to both heroes and villains alike, oftentimes despite the fact that his biggest skill is being very good with guns.
Generally, the Punisher’s ability to win these battles is attributed to his extensive military training, skill with espionage, proficiency with all manner of weapons, and his almost inhuman tolerance for pain.
While the community of heroes can begrudgingly recognize the contributions he’s made to the greater good, other crimefighters hate that his personal, code-bound brand of justice revolves around killing.
Unlike his comics self who, in a lot of ways, is usually punching up at people who are literally more powerful than he is, MCU Punisher is lives in a world where the Defenders are his biggest threat.
The Punisher series follows Frank as he continues to track down people connected to the gang violence that ultimately led to his family’s murder, and Frank’s introduction to the MCU has largely framed him as being a tragic antihero driven to darkness by happenstance.
