Here’s The Thing Episode 12: Angel Punisher vs. FrankenCastle
If our weekly Ask Chris column isn't enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here's The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he sits in his living room under a framed portrait of Destro, drinking a cup of coffee and sharing his opinion on comic books.
On this week's show, Chris revisits a previous episode to examine why FrankenCastle, the story where the Punisher became a grumpy Frankenstein monster with a giant metal arm, works much better than Angel Punisher, the story where the Punisher became a grumpy angel with a coat full of heaven guns. Believe it or not, there is a difference.
- Here's The Thing took on Angel Punisher back in Episode 8.

- If you think the idea of a gun-toting vigilante becoming a Frankenstein doesn't work in the Core Marvel Universe, maybe you should think about how some other important elements of the Core Marvel Universe actually work.
