This July Marvel proudly presents: SPACE: PUNISHER!!!
It's Punisher. In SPACE.
During Marvel's Amazing Spider-Man Panel, Marvel stunned the audience by announcing a new title: Space: Punisher (especially stunning since it was a Spider-Man panel).
This July Frank Tieri and Mark Texiera will bring you Space: Punisher #1.
This isn't your father's Punisher, nor is it Punisher 2099 which also had some space in it. This is a different Frank Castle, in a different universe. Many of the similar elements will be there such as Castle's quest for revenge but with space weapons, alien criminals, space monsters and other worlds.
Get ready this Summer for SPPPPAAACEEEE!
“The main threat Frank faces comes from the mysterious cosmic mafia known as the Six Fingered Hand—the six fingers representing the six heads of the organization,” explains Tieri. “They’re the ones responsible for the death of his family and believe me when I say taking them out will be a lot easier said than done. Put aside that they’re the dominant force in the galaxy they’re also sort of the universe’s Keyser Sözes—more underworld myth than anything.”
Tieri indicates, however, to expect some aspects of SPACE will be a mirror to the more familiar Marvel Universe:
“If it’s recognizable villains you want, recognizable villains you’ll get in the form of the reputed 6FH’s capos: The Red Skull, Magneto, Ultron, The Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus and the Sym-Brood-ant Queen—in this universe, the Brood and the Venom symbiotes have merged into a single race. Fans can also expect to see versions of The Hulk, Doc Samson, Corsair, Deadpool, Sabretooth, The Leader, Rhino and Barracuda, just to name a few.
“Oh, and did I mention the other dominant force in the universe? The Avengers Federation”
