Video+Story – TNTM: Marvel Cosmic Ghost Rider series

Marvel introduced a new character in Thanos #16, the Cosmic Ghost Rider. It is revealed later in that issue that the Cosmic Ghost Rider is none other than… Frank Castle (Punisher). If that isn’t twisted enough for you, the story of how he became the right hand of Thanos is very warped.

Thanos came to Earth and is in the midst of easily defeating all the heroes. During this battle, Frank thinks “I would give anything to punish that purple sonofabitch.” The old saying “Be careful what you wish for” applies here as Mephisto heard this thought.

Mephisto makes Frank his newest Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance. There is one small problem though. Thanos left no survivors. There is no one to punish or even talk to. Cosmic Ghost Rider is left with his own thoughts causing him to lose a bit of his sanity.

After a millennia passes, Galactus appears on Earth in rough shape and on the run from Thanos. Since Cosmic Ghost Rider wants revenge on Thanos himself, he agrees to become a herald of Galactus. He is granted the power cosmic from Galactus.

The pair hunt down Thanos only to have him behead Galactus and easily defeat Cosmic Ghost Rider. Thanos sees something in Cosmic Ghost Rider and offers for him to be his right hand man. Cosmic Ghost Rider will be able to punish countless people across the cosmos.

Cosmic Ghost Rider is such a popular character he is getting his own mini-series (5 issues) with the first one hitting shelves July 4, 2018. The series will be written by Donny Cates with interior art by Dylan Burnett and cover art by Geoff Shaw. This series promises to be very interesting.

What do you think about Cosmic Ghost Rider? Let us know in the comments.

TNTM: Punisher on Netflix discussion

If you’ve been paying attention to Netflix you had to notice they are betting heavily on Marvel Comics characters. So far We have seen 2 Daredevil series, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Defenders. Now Netflix is promising to have The Punisher series on Netflix before the end of the year.

The Punisher, a.k.a Francis “Frank” Castle, is a Marvel Comics character created by writer Gerry Conway and artists John Romita Sr. and Ross Andru. The Punisher made his first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #129.

The Punisher is a vigilante who employs all manner of brutality to get get crime off the street. He started his crusade against crime after his wife and two children were killed by the mob for witnessing a killing in New York City’s Central Park. Frank used his military training as a United States Marine Corps Scout Sniper to systematically and efficiently take out criminals. There is no grey area with the Punisher. You are either good or bad. If you’re bad, he usually ends up killing you.

The Punisher typically works alone. He does have a few select people that help him fight crime. Microchip assists him by building and supplying weapons and technology. Some police officers/detectives have been known to help when they can. Lynn Michaels was a police officer who teamed up with Punisher to take down a serial rapist and later quit the force to become a vigilante. Lt. Martin Soap was secretly allied with the Punisher and gave him information on his targets from the police database.

Jon Bernthal will be reprising his role as Punisher (from Daredevil season 2). For many this was a highlight to the whole season. Daredevil season 2 was the Netflix audience’s introduction to the character. If the writing for the Punisher series is as good as the writing for his character in the Daredevil series, Netflix will have another hit on their hands.

TNTM: Marvel Comics Deadpool vs Punisher

By now everyone knows who Deadpool is due to the success of his movie. Even the most non-nerdy people have at least heard the name and know he is a quirky comic book character. Judging by the box office, Wade Wilson is a very popular guy.

Thanks to Daredevil season 2 on Netflix, the Punisher is now a very well known character. His penchant for dispensing of evil people has been a standard in all his comic appearances.

The Deadpool vs Punisher title promises to be the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup of the comic book world… two great tastes that go great together. What we don’t understand is why did it take so long to put these guys together?

The plot

deadpool-vs-punisher-coverThe Punisher (Frank Castle) discovers a character known as the Bank. The Bank is the accountant to most of the high level criminals in the Marvel Universe. He is the one that sets up off shore accounts and other schemes to keep their money safe from being seized by the government. That makes him a bad guy in the Punisher’s eyes. True to character, he sets out to neutralize the Bank.

One small obstacle in the Punisher’s path is Deadpool. The Bank just happens to be a very old friend of Deadpool’s from before he was in the Weapon X program. Deadpool is very loyal to his friends and really doesn’t want to see the Punisher kill the Bank.

This is slated to be a 5 issue limited series. Who do you think will come out on top in this battle? Give us your ideas on this in the comments section below.

Official Solicitation

DEADPOOL VS PUNISHER #1 (OF 5)
MARVEL COMICS

(W) Fred Van Lente (A) Pere Perez (CA) Declan Shalvey

Frank Castle has an unstoppable will – a powerful drive to punish those who do wrong, rooted in the tragic killing of his family. Wade Wilson has an unstoppable mouth – an unthinking knack for annoying everyone around him, rooted in thinking he’s funny.

Both men, however, are among the deadliest on the planet. When they find themselves in disagreement over the criminal known as The Bank, they’re in for one of the most brutal fights of their lives! Can Frank kill Wade over and over without ever dying once himself? Or will Wade bug him until he welcomes death?

TNTM: Doctor Strange / Punisher Magic Bullets

Magic Bullets teams up Doctor Strange and the Punisher

You would be hard pressed to find 2 Marvel Comics characters that are farther apart from each other in every aspect than Doctor Strange and the Punisher.  It only makes sense for them to appear together in a crossover mini-series.

Frank Castle encounters a new kind of mafia threat.  These new players in the organized crime game are using magic to get the upper hand.  The mystical mafia is out of the Punisher’s expertise so he enlists the help of the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange.  Will the Punisher start using a little magic? Will Doctor Strange adapt Frank Castle’s kill ’em all, let God sort them out way of thinking?

This isn’t the first time Doctor Strange and the Punisher have worked together.  Back in 2014 the Original Sin story-line saw Doctor Strange possess the Punisher’s body as the Marvel Universe was investigating the death of Uatu the Watcher.  Magic Bullets appears to be much more of a ground level affair.  The premise is the Punisher recruits Doctor Strange to help him with a mob powered by magic putting the Doctor’s Hippocratic Oath to the test.

Here’s the full solicitation information:
