10 Facts You Need To Know About The Punisher
7. He Debuted Attempting To Kill Spider-Man
The Punisher made his start in the comics in 1974, appearing in The Amazing Spiderman #129. Frank arrives on the scene with a clear goal: kill Spider-Man, who he believed was responsible for the death of Norman Osborn. Not much is learned about the character, outside of the fact that he is an outstanding fighter who can hold his own with the very best.
One of the qualities that some people love seeing in The Punisher is when he displays a sense of honorable combat. As a result, he was not too pleased when his contract against Spider-Man seemed to end after the Jackal killed Spider-Man (yeah, right) using less than honorable means.
