Marvel faces calls to retire The Punisher after Capitol rioters were seen wearing the character's logo

Marvel faces calls to retire The Punisher after Capitol rioters were seen wearing the character's logo

People are calling on Marvel comics to consider retiring The Punisher character in light of his symbol being seen on rioters at the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6.

The character’s symbol has been a topic of debate for years after it was adopted as a symbol of pride among some in the U.S. military and law enforcement, as well as some far-right activists. Many have found it alarming that police, as well as potentially violent right-leaning groups, find kinship with Marvel’s most violent and murderous anti-hero.

 


For those unfamiliar, The Punisher, first introduced by Marvel Comics 1974, is the alter ego of Frank Castle. After witnessing the murder of his family, Castle uses his skills as a military veteran in a one-man war against crime. However, unlike other Marvel heroes like Spider-Man or Captain America, Castle isn’t shy about employing torture, violence and even outright murder as a means to his end.
