The Wrong Side: Punisher vs. Spider-Man, Daredevil and Wolverine

In this feature, I examine comic book fights that were particularly notable in the wrong side winning (or at least that the fight wasn’t won the “right” way). This really isn’t a big deal, of course, as it doesn’t really matter if the “wrong” person won a fight. But it’s fun to talk about!

If you want to suggest a fight for future inclusion in this feature, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com. Don’t suggest a fight in the comments!

Today, based on a suggestion from a whole bunch of readers, we look at the time that the Punisher made Spider-Man, Daredevil and Wolverine look like a confederacy of dunces…

As always, the first page spotlights their power levels and the second page examines the fight itself.

And as always, the first question we need to ask is…

How did these people do when they fought Spider-Man?

Right from the get go, the Punisher has done pretty well against Spider-Man, going back all the way to his debut in Amazing Spider-Man #129 (by Gerry Conway, Ross Andru and Frank Giacoia), but while he does well, it is still pretty clear he’s not on Spidey’s power level…

Both Wolverine and Daredevil have had very respectable one-on-one showings against Spidey.

In Amazing Spider-Man #287 (by Christopher Priest, Erik Larsen and Art Nichols), they tussle and while Spider-Man is clearly the winner of the fight, DD holds his own…

(Daredevil did even BETTER in another fight, but, well, that one was subject of a Wrong Side column in and of itself)

In Spider-Man Vs. Wolverine #1, ALSO by Christopher Priest (with art by M.D. Bright and Al Williamson), Wolverine takes a beating from Spider-Man but holds on very well over all, even though Spidey is clearly out of his league, power-wise…

Okay, on to the fight(s)!
