THE PUNISHER #218-228 (Matthew Rosenberg / Guiu Vilanova)

Cet automne, Marvel Comics donnera le coup d’envoi d’une nouvelle initiative intitulée MARVEL LEGACY. Marvel annonce un retour aux sources, à l’ancienne numérotation des plus vieux titres de son catalogue, des récits qui seront des points d’entrée idéals…un accent mis sur les personnages iconiques mais sans oublier la nouvelle génération du Marvel NOW.
Bref, “de l’espoir, du plaisir, du fun, du sense of wonder” !

Marvel a dévoilé une salve de 52 (!) titres par le biais de couvertures teasers rendant hommage à une illustration passée. La numérotation et les équipes créatives n’ont pas encore été révélées.

Frank Castle…dans l’armure de War Machine !

Ca me fait penser à du Manco.

L’air de rien, le Punisher dans l’armure, c’est un peu plus trippant que Fatalis ou Riri. Il y a plus à faire.

ça fait sens en plus. Après Punisher War Zone, voilà la série Punisher War Machine !
ça va donner des idées à Niko pour blog en l’an 2105 …

La série The Punisher débutera l’ère LEGACY avec le #218 et un arc intitulé “Frank Castle : War Machine”.

Marvel a dévoilé la nouvelle équipe créative de The Punisher : Matthew Rosenberg (Rocket Raccoon, Secret Warriors…) au scénario et Guiu Vilanova (Slayer : Repentless, Weird Detective) aux dessins.

As for where the idea came from, my editor Jake Thomas brought it to me. It took me a second to really get it. I love War Machine and Rhodey. I love him as a character and what he stands for. In a lot of ways, he is this optimistic view of what our government and our military stand for. Like Cap, he is the best of us going above and beyond to keep all of us safe and free. And obviously, he is much more than that too.

But none of that is what Frank is.

Frank is the inverted nightmare version of that. He is all the anger and hatred and vengeance that is built into our society, personified. The Punisher brings up a lot of uncomfortable questions about who we are as a society and what we are willing to let happen and what we’d like to see done. So, putting Frank in Rhodey’s armor felt so wrong to me at first. It felt almost blasphemous. It wasn’t until I realized this wasn’t a superhero story anymore that I got it. This isn’t a celebration of the Punisher taking on the mantle of War Machine and becoming a hero. This is a look into how easily War Machine can become overshadowed by the Punisher when it falls into the wrong hands.
