Thanks for joggin' my memory, brain fart. Yeah the secret empire is cool, I remember these guys now...guess I am getting forgetful in my old age. Wasn't gabriel jones from the howling commandos and sheild posing as a high ranking secret empire member once? cool.

And we haven't landed men on mars yet either, but it is a reachable goal. it could be done, just not as fantastic as tony's.

I don't. but please feel free to tell me if there is anything worth buyin' nowadays in marvel or dc, I'd like to know.

> Because the notion that he wouldn't have been hunted down and stopped by all the heroes who would long since have stopped anyone else who has killed the number of people he has, never mind the Police, is ridiculous. He only gets a pass by editorial fiat and that get's more and more absurd with each time it's used.

Haven't we had dozens of stories of heroes deciding to go after him, but end up reluctantly teamin' up with him instead? it's the lesser evil kinda thing. and castle has done time before. but I do agree with you, the longer the Punisher is around, the less beleivable he becomes. personally if I was runnin' marvel I would have killed him off in a blaze of glory years ago, and it would've rocked. kill Punisher, not cap. and don't bring him back after ya kill him. I wish Bucky stayed dead....where is the suspense if every hereo that dies always comes back to life again eventually? Thanks for joggin' my memory. just to get back to Batman, I still say guys Like Tony, Batman, and Castle are more believable than guys like GL, Supes, and Spidey. I have a soft spot for non-superpowered heroes. and Batman is the best one of the lot.
