Wow, I can’t believe they actually did it. The Punisher is dead, I know it looked grim at the end of #21, but this is comics, there’s always a way out. But I had forgotten that this was MAX and Jason Aaron, the normal rules do not apply. With Frank dead, the focus of this epilogue issue was Nick Fury who gives Frank the funeral he probably doesn’t really deserve, and we see how his War wasn’t meaningless at all as he spurs on the general populace to fight back against crime. That ending may seem to be a positive one, but it’s troubling me, Frank’s death has basically led to a violent uprising against the state. It would be interesting to see Aaron follow that story up, but it’s probably a bit too similar to what Bendis is doing with Scarlet. I really hope that this is the last we see of MAX Punisher, after what Ennis and now Aaron have done, I doubt it can be bettered. Let the Marvel Universe have its PG-13 Frank, that should be enough.
