> After Cap pounded the Punisher, he should have pointed out that it's "heroes" like Frank Castle that the government wants the SHRA in the first place. And everything you said above is exactly why Cap can't accept immunity if offered to him.
The Punisher is not a hero at all and like Luke Cage says, he's a serial killer. His attitude is something even pre-SHRA heroes would hate very much, and it's clear Luke hates him. The Civil War is just annoying him, it really has nothing to do with his activites, other than SHIELD taking all his weapons and vehicles.
For those who don't read the War Journal, he actually says something before shooting Goldbug and Plunderer - "No deals. No deals EVER." That's his perspective. Then he tells Cap "If you lie with dogs you wake up with fleas".
Cap is also deeply respected by the Punisher, but labels his methods insane- but Frank isn't a hero, he doesn't pull people out of burning buildings or save the universe, he just shoots the criminals. The SHRA does target people like Frank, but any rational law enforcement agent should. The man is a maniac for sure (and on Tony's side we have Norman Osborn, Bullseye, the cape killers...er never mind).
What the SHRA really was meant to do was regulate and train heroes, something Cap would understand the need for if it only came to that. And he does, when Frank says "not you" and "I don't kill cops". A lot of the pro-reg heroes and SHIELD wouldn't hesitate at all, which shows extreme disregard for Captain America's reputation and standing. It's shameful that a maniac serial killer still calls him 'sir' while supposed heroes try to chase him like he was well, Frank.
I still salute you, Cap.
