THE PUNISHER KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE Marvel Comics



I did not like this comic book.

Normally I dig Garth Ennis’s writing. I enjoy his war stories, particularly the Enemy Ace limited series he wrote a few years back. Ennis breathed a murderous new vitality into Marvel’s The Punisher, rescuing a property that had fallen out of favor with fans. And his brutal limited series Thor: Vikings had an honest-to-God F*$% Yeah moment that I will have to write about some day (Thor: “’Tis on.”)

But this comic, The Punisher Kills The Marvel Universe? It’s pointless and ugly and gratuitous and pandering and amoral and I felt like showering after I read it. So of course, it’s a perfect book for Alternate Reality Where Everybody Dies Week!

As is our custom here at Dave’s Long Box, the theme week will stretch beyond seven days. Perhaps I should have called it Alternate Reality Where Everybody Dies Fortnight. I realized that I have been focusing exclusively focusing on Marvel comics where everybody dies and have been neglecting all the fine DC comics where everybody dies, so I must continue on into a second week of carnage.

Back to The Punisher Kills The Marvel Universe. The premise is simple, but stupid: What if Frank “The Punisher” Castle’s family were killed in the crossfire of a superhero battle in Central Park instead of getting killed in the crossfire of a mob hit like they were in the “616” universe. Instead of dedicating his life to eradicating crime and punishing criminals, Castle dedicates his life to wiping out superheroes…

…which makes no damn sense whatsoever.

Ennis wastes no time putting The Punisher in full-on killer mode. A police detective, Frank Castle shows up at Central Park where The X-Men and Avengers have just finished repelling an invasion of Brood and Skrull aliens. A stray optic blast or flying tree or something takes out Castle’s family, which pisses him off to no end.

Cyclops feels bad and tries to apologize to Castle, who responds by shooting the X-Man in the face. Twice.

After that Frank shoots Jubilee (I'm OK with that) and a New Warrior or two, and gets arrested, tried, and sentenced to life in prison. He’s sprung from jail by a coalition of wealthy, revenge-crazed victims of superhero violence who want to use Frank as their instrument of vengeance. He agrees, and begins systematically murdering every superhuman in the Marvel universe, starting with Spider-Man.

I can understand that the guy would be pissed. Heck, I’d be sore if my family were killed in a superhero fight, too. It seems like pretty thin motivation for killing EVERY SINGLE SUPERHERO EVER. Ennis doesn’t portray Frank as a barking mad lunatic – he pretty much acts like your standard-model Punisher – so the reader is asked to make this huge leap of faith and just accept that Frank must act irrationally and kill all superhumans, even if it doesn’t make sense.

I mean, it’s not like The Avengers and X-Men were playing a game of touch football in Central Park that got out of hand and people were killed. They were stopping an interstellar invasion, for Chrissake. If there were no superheroes to repel the attack and Frank’s family was accidentally killed in a battle between the aliens and the National Guard, would Frank systematically wipe out all Guardsmen? And why isn’t he pissed off at the Brood and the Skrulls? They started the whole thing.

The other thing that bugs me about this comic is its inconsistent stance on violence and retribution. After providing Frank with thin motivation to hate all superhumans, we follow him along on a series of vignettes in which he murders heroes and villains in clever and sadistic ways. Are we supposed to be rooting for him? Some of the execution scenes are played for black laughs, like this scene where The Punisher takes out Dr. Doom with a hammer:

I don’t know, is that supposed to be funny? Maybe you have to be a hormonal, socially retarded, glue-sniffing 13 year old boy in a trench coat to truly appreciate the nuanced humor. Or maybe it’s just kewl, in the same way it is kewl when a cheerleader gets stabbed in the throat in a slasher movie. I can’t tell what reaction Ennis is going for.

Here’s another example: Frank tracks down Spider-Man and kills him and Venom in a New York sewer. Just before The Punisher shoots Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man in the head, the hero asks him, “Why me?” Ka-BLOW!

We get a full-page shot of The Punisher looking all tough, striding through the sewer. He tells the (dead) Spider-Man, “Because somebody had to be first.” Oh, snap! Again, what is the desired effect? Is it supposed to be cool? Dramatic? As a reader am I supposed to be cheering The Punisher on because, really, fuck those superheroes and all the saving-the-world shit?

I could go on – he kills all the mutants by luring them to The Moon and setting off one of Dr. Doom’s nuclear bombs. He shoots Captain America in the head. Wolverine goes out like a sucker. Mr. Fantastic is found dead in a dumpster. Let that one sink in: the guy who saved the planet from being chowed on by Galactus gets shot because he has superpowers. That’s fucking stupid. Finally, The Punisher stabs Daredevil in the chest, feels bad, and kills himself. The end.

Man, I knew I should have reviewed the Fred Hembeck book instead. You can't go wrong with Hembeck.

Not only does The Punisher Kills The Marvel Universe suck, but it’s no fun and it makes me feel icky after having read it again. Don’t get me wrong, I love gratuitous superhero extermination as much as the next guy, hence Alternate Reality Where Everybody Dies Week, but do I have to switch off my critical faculties and sense of morality in order to enjoy comic books with a high body count? I would have to be stupid and sociopathic to enjoy a book like this. Am I saying that you, Dave’s Long Box reader, are dumb and amoral if you enjoyed this book?

Yes. Yes, I am.*

Gaaah, I’ve got this crappy taste in my mouth now. I need to counteract the effect of this comic book by exposing my mind to something diametrically opposed to The Punisher, something like this:


Thank you, baby harp seal. Thank you.

Next, let’s see how DC heroes fare when they’re put in an Alternate Reality.

Hint: everybody dies.

*Sigh... OK, to be fair I have to say that it is possible for moral and intelligent people to enjoy this book, even if I didn't. I'm not a big meany like The Punisher.

Great review, man! I think a lot of times writers think they can just put out anything and believe people will buy into it. But even in the comic book world, the story has to make sense. Plausible makes it enjoyable.

This is my first time reading your blog but you have made me a fan. Thanks for the honest review. And how does stinkin' Punisher take all those heros anyway?!?!? What a dunce!

philip said...

I'm not as steeped in Marvel lore as many others (I'm in the 'DC geek' sub-set of comic geeks) so I have to ask, "What the pho is the '616 Universe'"? I realize it's short-hand for "Marvel" but from whence did it come?

Please and thank you.

Timo said...

I remember Marvel reprinted this book a few years ago when Ennis's Punisher mini-series was getting popular (I believe it was originally released in 94 or 95, before "Preacher" made Ennis a comic book star). As I was enjoying his Punisher series (for the most part) at the time, I thought I'd flip through this in the store. I'm glad I looked through it before buying it, because I had the exact same reaction as you. I thought it was repulsive, cynical, and unnecessarily mean-spirited. I know, it's an Ennis book, but in almost all of his other books there's a character you can root for (a big exception being his Black Bull series "Just a Pilgram," which was total shit sandwich). Not so in this book. Anyway, good review, and I apologize for the excessive use of parathesis in this comment.

googum said...

I think Alan Moore's responsible for the "real" Marvel U. being numbered 616, from his Captain Britain books.

Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe: yeah, not great.

Punisher: The End: So, so, good.

There's one thing to be said about The Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe: it's pretty cheerful compared to, say, Ruins.

Jim said...

I dug this book when I first read it. I kind of like the blind determination to live up to its title-it's almost as if Ennis just wrote out the title of the book and then had to figure out a way to make it happen.

I thought the X-Family execution was kind of hilarious-for those who haven't read it, it basically amounts to the Punisher setting up all the mutant heroes (except Wolverine, natch) and villains on a blind date of sorts. In a terrordome. On the moon. And then he nukes them.

Juggernaut said...

I haven't read the issue, but was just curious if the Punisher took out Thor. Anyone got the details?

ohgrl said...

philip: I didn't know what the "616" was either(first thought: Detroit has its own universe now?), so here's the Wikipedia link that edjamacated me.

Dave, my eyes thank you for sparing them a lye washing. I'm really repulsed by the few panels I've seen here. Seems like a lot of over the top violence for no good reason, but hey, I'm not a 13 year old glue sniffer, so what do I know?

Yeah. It's sad. After seeing all that unneeded carnage, bludgeoning the cute lil seal springs to mind. But no. Hug the baby seal. Love it. Harm it not.

And yes, violence for violence's sake sucks. Let's have it be meaningful, uh?

That harp seal should've been in "cute little baby harp seal blows up the punisher, because he's an obnoxious idiot"... or maybe not.

I love this comic. I loved it when I read it in high school, I loved it when I reread it last year, and I loved reading about how much you didn't love it. See, I'm hardly a sociopath. Is a sociopath so filled with love as this? I think not.

PS - Garth Ennis's "Preacher" lettrcol introduced me to the best joke ever: "Two baby seals walk into a club."

PPS - Zombie Night at the Gotham Aquarium.

"Ennis doesn’t portray Frank as a barking mad lunatic – he pretty much acts like your standard-model Punisher"

Seems like a distinction without a difference to me, but then the last Punisher appearance I enjoyed was drawn by Ross Andru.

No need to extend your 'everybody dies' session. 'Dave's Long Box' moves through time at the same rate as the Marvel Universe.

So whenever you say 'week', I say 'whatever'.

Awesome comics review blog, I love the 'what if' standalones where eveyone gets wiped out. They really make you think.

ps. the F&*K YEAH's crack me up.

Thanks for helping me finally realize why this book has perplexed me for so long. I picked it up during my fanatic scramble for all things Ennis, right after I read the "Preacher" library. I couldn't understand why the tale didn't sit well with me. I liked Ennis. I liked the Punisher. What I didn't like was the thin motivation, the sheer effortlessness of his methods. Even in the context of his weak m.o., I would've dug some consistent subplot about that elusive B-lister, that thorn Frank just can't pluck. Cloak and Dagger come to mind. Cloak absorbs all of Punny's bullets and disappears before further capture, something like that. Here's the cool Ennis line: "Because someone had to GET AWAY." Eh? EH?

Looks like a great blog and I can't wait to read more! I'm new at this, so if you get a chance to check mine out and offer some feedback, I'd appreciate it!

Kevin Church said...

Dave, for the love of God, you are overthinking a book where this was the editorial process:

Marvel: Ennis, have the Punisher kill everyone.
Ennis: Get me a case of Sierra Nevada and give me three hours. Prepare the wire transfer.

Chris Sims said...

Campbell, you know me.

You know what I do.

That said, I was a little iffy on this the first time I read it back when Marvel reissued it with the Steve Dillon cover (circa the Marvel Knights Punisher ongoing, I believe), but when I read it again last year as part of the Box of Punishment, I thought it was a hoot.

You're absolutely right when you say it's stupid, but brother, it's hilariously stupid. On my second pass at it, it didn't read like overblown Punisher fan-fiction, but instead like a dead-on satire on every lousy What If Punisher story where he accidentally kills Daredevil (or Conan, or the Silver Surfer, or whatever) and things end up like Potterville in It's A Wonderful Life.

Does that make it a Cousin Larry trick? Maybe. But I can't imagine that it's actually meant to be taken seriously.

Eagerly awaiting The Punisher Kills Cousin Larry and Mary Sue comic...

My thought when I first read this comic is that it was supposed to be stupid and over-the-top, but your criticisms are right on.

My biggest gripe at the time was that if it so easy to walk up to these heroes and shoot them, why weren't they all dead long ago?

But I love Ennis' sick sense of humor. Nothing will ever top The Punisher blowing off Wolverine's face and gonads, then parking a steamroller on him. Hee!

I think Dave picked the word he wanted to use.

Amoral: Lacking moral sensibility; not caring about right and wrong.

EVERYWHERE on the interweb (and a LOT these days) are people using that "Because someone had to be First" line as if it were hip.

Gah!

That was one of the only comic books that I got rid of right after I bought it.

And, yes I KNOW it's worth some bucks.

Rohan Williams said...

Has anyone ever actually visited a site or blog after being spammed in a comments section? Ever? Ever? At some point, wouldn't people figure that out and stop doing it?

Incidentally, I think a big part of 'alternate future where everybody dies' stories is that everybody dies a little too easily... I mean, if we're looking for consistency, of course folks who beat Galactus shouldn't be killed by Sentinels or dumpsters or whatever, but that's kinda part of the goofy charm of these stories, to me.

Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill's "Marshal Law Takes Manhattan" did the nihilistic slaughter of Marvel characters a lot better.

And the main villain in that book is "The Persecutor" - a thinly veiled parody of the erstwhile Mr Castle.

GREAT blog! i didn't read the comic you referred to in this post, but regarding the wonder woman vs. storm controversy... wonder woman also received gifts from all goddesses at birth AND was, for a brief period, a goddess herself. so i agree with you SHE WOULD KICK Storm's A$$, (if only we could get halle berry to play wonder woman on screen, i think the result would be the other way)

carla said...

because, really, fuck those superheroes and all the saving-the-world shit?

Yes! Authority isn't popular. Welcome to Civil War. No one wants to see the good guys triumph over evil, they just want to see them as twisted and messed up as the rest of us. And sometimes that means pitting hero vs. hero or sometimes it's hitting Doom with a hammer.

Great blog - and a great review of a terrible sounding book. I got into Punisher back in those carefree days of yesteryear when Dolf Lundgren rocked our worlds as Frank Castle. Since then I've wandered far from Marvel into Dark Horse and Vertigo and some of the better manga. Oh, and Transmetropolitan. That's the good stuff right there. Hot diggety.

My main problem with it was the fact that there wasn't any creativity or zing behind the deaths. It was just The Punisher shooting or bludgeoning various super-heroes. Wow! Really? You're just going to beat Dr. Doom to death with a hammer? You sure you don't want to try something a little more clever than that? OK, whatever. You're the fan favorite Garth.

You're right about the Hembeck book it's wittier, smarter and actually, in some ways, darker than The Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe.

Gwynplaine said...

I thought your review was spot-on and well-spoken -- and very funny. Thank you for the harp seal. I look forward to reading more, and especially to killing off those darn DC heroes in an alternate universe. Heh heh.

Anonymous said, "My biggest gripe at the time was that if it so easy to walk up to these heroes and shoot them, why weren't they all dead long ago?"

This is actually a common problem with newer comic books; they want to be darker, so they have to kill some guys off, right? Having your newest villain shove a stalagmite through Midnight Stranger's face will really show how badass your new comic is, right?

The thing is, you always end up wondering why nobody tried that in the first place. I mean, gosh, nobody ever though of blowing up the New Warriors? Nobody thought of shooting Spider-Man?

Even worse is when it works on guys who you already know could beat it:

This is what I've never understood about Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe: Is it supposed to be funny, or what?

I mean, it doesn't seem like it should be takenseriously, because what, we're supposed to buy that a guy who matches wits with the smartest man on earth and has wrestled guys who can knock over whole buildings with their bear hands is going to be laid low by an ordinary dude with a sledge-hammer?

But at the same time, it's not particularly funny, either.

What's the point?

And yeah, you have to do DC's Word's Funnest, which can briefly be described as "Bat-Mite and Mr. Mxysptlck kill the DC Universe".

I'm in the minority here, but I liked the Punisher kills the Marvel Universe book. I haven't read it in a really long time and seeing it brings back memories.

Of course, I'm a slave to gratuitous violence.

So thank you, Dave's Long Box, and good day, sir.

I actually kinda like that Dr. Doom scene, at least in isolation. It's good Comic Book Irony, especially for a guy who's as grandiose and self-important as Doom.

Doom undoubtedly expects that, in the unlikely event that he dies, it'll be a glorious death - while finally destroying the accursed Richards, he's simultaneously overcome by one of Richards' brilliant inventions.

But to meet his end at the hands of a regular U.S. Marine-turned-vigilante with a big hammer? That'd just piss Doom off to no end!

I'm in the minority I know but I kind of liked it....I interpreted it more as a parody.

a few thoughts....

1.) Since ths subject of realism came up, the idea that innocent people would be killed in superhero crossfires makes perfect sense....In the Welcome Back Frank storyline, The Punisher himself makes that distinction when he tells the vigilate Payback that he shot a cleaning woman by mistake while killing a CEO. The DC storyline Kingdom Come was also good in this regard.

2.) I'm not one of those who find The Punisher particularly heroic....He kills criminals in cold blood without due process of law....I don't think it's much of a stretch to have him murder heroes in the same way and that's what's clever about this comic and also one of the reasons why I like The Punisher MAX series....It's the Punisher undiluted.

3.) I particularily liked the part where he killed the Hulk....He simply tags him with a homing beacon and then shoots him when he turns back into Bruce Banner.

how about Captain John Price kills the Nolanverse where this is basically Punisher kills the Marvel Universe parody with Punisher replaced by John Price from Call of Duty Modern Warfare games and marvel universe replaced by Nolan Batman universe(it isn't alternate reality to nolanverse)?
