The Design Evolution of the Punisher

Frank Castle, otherwise known as the Punisher, is an unusual case when it comes to superheroes. He’s got no power, but does have a killer costume, complete with the iconic Punisher skull. Throughout history, Frank hasn’t changed his outfit much, but he’s definitely evolved in several ways throughout his comic series.

The Marvel comics killer isn’t exactly your friendly neighborhood superhero, but across movies, comics, video games, and the MCU “Punisher” Netflix series, Frank has been a killer fashion plate. Outside of the comics, the hero has laid waste to various different mediums, starting with the 1989 “Punisher,” starring a skull-less Dolph Lundgren, and leading to the 2004 film starring Thomas Jane. Ray Stevenson’s over-the-top kills in “Punisher: War Zone,” came next — and now Netflix has introduced a Jon Bernthal Punisher the “Daredevil” series. As “The Punisher” Season 2 nears, where the hero is set to showdown with Billy Russo, a.k.a. Jigsaw, we’ve been scouring every brutal trailer, clip and scene to see what else we can learn about the mysterious man in black — but we can barely scratch the surface of Frank Castle and his never-ending quest for vengeance.
