This April, Marvel Comics readers may finally learn the answer to the age old question: Who has more guns — Frank Castle or Wade Wilson?
OK, so that debate may not be solved, but one thing’s for sure; the bullets are bound to fly when “Deadpool vs Punisher” kicks off. Writer Fred Van Lente and artist Pere Perez will pit the former Thunderbolts teammates against each other in a story that finds Castle tracking down someone who has a history with Wade.
The Bank is a shadowy character who’s existed in the Marvel Universe for decades,” Van Lente told Marvel.com of the series’ antagonist. “[W]e’ve never heard of him before because he is very much off the grid—he’s as his name implies a money man, who handles offshore accounts for a variety of amoral-to-immoral characters and organizations. He also happens to be one of Wade Wilson’s best friends, having known Deadpool before his Weapon X days,” Van Lente continued. “So when Punisher decides to bring The Bank down, he’s got to go through Deadpool to do that, and you know what? Frank doesn’t really have a problem with that, since he doesn’t like Wade all that much anyway.”
Today, CBR has the exclusive debut of the series’ second issue cover by Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire.
“Deadpool Vs. Punisher” #1 and #2, written by Fred Van Lente with art by Pere Perez and covers by Shalvey & Bellaire, arrives in April 2017.
