Deadpool vs Punisher, is one of the most awaited fights between fans from both characters.
Who would win in a fight between two of the most ruthless and lethal characters in Marvel Universe?
We might get an answer (or not) by Fred Van Lente and Pere Perez the creative team who will make this battle a reality.
Deadpool and Punisher have been in the "red" Thunderbolts, that time lead by Red Hulk "Thaddeus Ross". Both characters didn't have a good start in Thunderbolts, Deadpool even tried to kill him because of Elektra and the Punisher shot him in the head because he talked too much or cut his body parts off in the final arc and put it in vibranium jars in the arc "Punisher vs Thunderbolts".
From the interview Fred Van Lente gave us good hints of what to come from this new miniseries.
The two characters have a genuine reason to go after each other; it’s not mind control, it’s not mistook-you-for-a-villain, both protagonists are each other’s antagonists for legitimate reasons the reader can relate to, and that’s where this new character The Bank comes in.
Van Lente also reveals some minor details about this new player named Bank.
The Bank is a shadowy character who’s existed in the Marvel Universe for decades, but we’ve never heard of him before because he is very much off the grid—he’s as his name implies a money man, who handles offshore accounts for a variety of amoral-to-immoral characters and organizations.
He also happens to be one of Wade Wilson’s best friends, having known Deadpool before his Weapon X days, and so when Punisher decides to bring The Bank down, he’s got to go through Deadpool to do that, and you know what? Frank doesn’t really have a problem with that, since he doesn’t like Wade all that much anyway.
This miniseries seems interesting enough and if it's well set we might have one of the most funny and awesome comics the Punisher has ever been.
The moment when the Punisher world intersects with Deadpool's, things will get messy for sure.
Can't wait for April for this upcoming miniseries!
