This isn't something to get all up in arms about.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: George_Spelvin: He's a guy that brandishes a farkload of weapons and kills people rather than see them face the justice system.

He's the Murican dream!

And he never should have been part of the same universe as Spider-Man and his amazing friends. Not saying he's not an interesting character or hasn't produced some good stories, especially those aimed squarely at adults. But it's hard to show him in action without glorifying firearms and it's no coincidence so many GUN NUTS(and one in particular) have adopted his logo. Never should have been marketed to adolescent boys as anything but a villain.

Punisher was my favorite as a kid, and I owned every comic up through about 1995. I did not turn out to be a gun nut nor a vigilante. I do worship satan thanks to all of the D&D I played and the Iron Maiden I listened to in the same period, but that's totally different.

If we're postponing The Punisher until the appropriate amount of time after a mass shooting, then I expect it to come out promptly after Rick and Morty season 12.

Mass Killing is only entertaining if done accompanied to Bell Biv Devoe


Or William Dafoe

Are they talking about the Vegas guy? He wasn't a vigilante. Country music sucks but it's not a crime. This guy was just a nutcase with a bunch of guns and explosives. What does that have to do with The Punisher?

People get really weird when shiat like this happens. They're probably going to scan every piece of luggage at that hotel, people are going to cancel their reservations, like it's going to happen again.

xxBirdMadGirlxx: HydroMonkey: Wouldn't the Punisher make a villain out of people like that? Rather than run and hide?

Thank you - that's what I was thinking. I know Castle is more of an anti-hero but I thought his entire gig was, you know, punishing dicks like Paddock, not emulating them.

I mean, I could understand if they modified the intro they ran with at the con- maybe not so much gunfire as mentioned in the article, but seriously, censoring the crap out of stuff following 9/11 didn't significantly help anyone's healing.


I know I was totally devastated when Spider-Man webbed that helicopter between the Twin Towers. If that made it in to the final movie I think my head would have exploded.

59 people are murdered by guns over a period of two days, just like normal in America: Meh, who cares about the delicate feelings of the survivors and relatives?  Bring. The. Violence.  FARK YEAH!

59 people are killed at once: OH NOES!!!! WE MUST PRETEND TO GIVE A FARK!  HIDE THE GUNS!  HIDE THE GUUUUUUNS!

Wile_E_Canuck: I've never understood why it's ok to have violent entertainment, then it isn't for a while when something bad makes the news, then after a few days it becomes ok again.  It just seems hypocritical to me for it to be ok last week, and ok in a couple weeks or a month, but not now.

Bojack Horseman season 4 had some astute observations on the matter of Hollywood and gun violence.

At the same time, I don't think the Punisher deserves a full TV series anyway. He shoots guns and blows shiat up, just like everybody else in an action property. At best, he's a foil for more interesting characters. But given the level of reality denial all the 2nd Amendment-fellating NRA types have already, I don't think we need to be giving them any more masturbation material.

/Instead, lets bring back swords or whips
//or paddles

Al shows/movies with guns in them cannot appear at Comic Con now.
Oh wait, that's all the shows and movies.
