Deadpool Takes On The Punisher in New Marvel Miniseries

Deadpool and the Punisher have crossed paths many times in the Marvel Universe, and they’ve even been teammates on the Thunderbolts. But later this year, all bets are off as a new miniseries will pit Deadpool vs. The Punisher over the fate of a newly revealed villain.

Via Marvel.com, writer Fred Van Lente and artist Pere Perez will be the creative team of Deadpool vs. The Punisher, and Van Lente was quick to point out that “the two characters have a genuine reason to go after each other; it’s not mind control, it’s not mistook-you-for-a-villain, both protagonists are each other’s antagonists for legitimate reasons the reader can relate to.” In fact, Van Lente is playing up the history of Wade Wilson and Frank Castle’s time on the Thunderbolts as the basis for why they can’t stand each other.

“Wade thinks Frank is a stick in the mud while Frank thinks Wade’s healing factor has made him loud, sloppy and useless,” explained Van Lente. As for the story, the miniseries is introducing The Bank, one of Deadpool’s oldest friends and the man who handles the money for various criminal organizations around the world. The Punisher has discovered The Bank’s existence and decided to wipe him out, while Deadpool is forced to defend his friend to save his life. According to Van Lente, the Punisher has no problem with the idea of killing Deadpool to get to The Bank. Unfortunately for him, Deadpool is pretty unkillable!

The Deadpool vs. Punisher miniseries will begin in April and run for five issues.
