The Punisher – Michael Jai White’s Deadpool is very similar to the Punisher. Both are mercurial gunmen with superhuman abilities, who wear all black, have large pistols, and fight only when their guns are loaded. In most of their fights, they fight to the death. Both characters have become heroes in their own right in the eyes of many.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t think “Hoo-boy” is a word that should be said in a movie where someone gets shot. From a writing standpoint, we have so much more freedom when writing Deadpool than we do when writing any other hero. We have no background information for Deadpool other than his street name. All of our story plots are built around that person and his life.
Punisher was a big man in a small town, who’d take down anyone who got in his way. He was a city boy who got a taste of the big time, and became a hero. Wade always seemed to have his enemies, including the Madman. In the Marvel universe, they’re not necessarily villains, but people he’s lost in his past. The Madman is from Wade’s past as well, which makes it even more powerful.
A lot of Wade’s villains, like the Madman, are people who live on the streets, have no power, and are desperate for some. The Madman is a mafia boss who owns the street where Wade works. Wade himself doesn’t even recognize the Madman as his boss. He’s a street person and doesn’t really know how to operate a club or office, so he probably thinks that being the boss would mean power and money. He’s just a street person trying to find out how to get to the top.
The Madman is also one of those characters who become more dangerous as he grows inpower. He’s a self-made man, and started out as nothing more than a small time thug, who stole from his customers and didn’t care about his family. As the Madman grew in power, he began to feel that he was owed some sort of respect and started trying to build up his mafia in the early 70s.
The Madman couldn’t hold off the Punisher, though. He knows that if he goes after Wade, then he’ll be unable to operate in the streets because the Punisher is always around. Even though he’s smart enough to know that Wade has guns, he doesn’t want to be caught by a gun that kills people in a second. His last minute effort to sneak up on the Punisher is just another example of how cunning he is.
He may be smart, but the Punisher is smart as well. He knew exactly what he was getting into when he chose to go after Wade, and he was willing to take whatever he needed to get what he wanted. His series is about vengeance, revenge against others who hurt him in the past, and he seems to enjoy when he can make Wade his enemy.
Like the Punisher, we’re allowed to use any character who is available to us in the Marvel universe. There are no limits on the types of characters that you can use, and the more powerful the character, the more fighting moves and powers he has. The Punisher is always more powerful than Wade, but you wouldn’t know that by looking at the first appearance of the two characters. It was Wade’s blue blazer that broke the ice.
