Remember when Frank Castle became old Saint Nick?
It was... odd. The character has been compared to Santa in joking terms for years. They both keep track of who's naughty and who's nice. Only instead of coal the Punisher usually whoops butt. Which might be more appealing depending on who you ask- ANYWAY.
Looking good Santa
In 1993 Frank decided that pacifism was worth trying out and instead of beating the crud out of people, he paralyzed them. Which is still not really pacifism. But it's gentler than his usual, so he gets points for trying.
Kind of makes me miss the Marvel Christmas specials though... did anyone catch any good ones this year?
