Inside the Characters of Marvel’s The Punisher: Jigsaw, Micro, and Pilgrim

Since his first appearance in 1974’s The Amazing Spider-Man #129, The Punisher’s popularity amongst comic book fans has consistently grown. As Marvel’s first true anti-hero, readers connected with Frank Castle’s obsessive drive for justice and revenge in the wake of the tragic murder of his family at the hands of warring gangs. Castle’s unrelenting nature and singularity of vision made him the scourge of the New York underworld, recognizable both for his brutal methods of justice as well as the signature white skull emblazoned on his chest.

FRANK CASTLE – The History of Marvel’s The Punisher

When Frank Castle first appeared in “The Amazing Spider-Man” #129 47 years ago, he was unlike any other crimefighter who’d sprung from the pages of Marvel Comics.

An Expanded Universe: Finding References in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is the ultimate convergence point of a shared universe. One which features characters, plots and items completely of its own creation, but one which also includes many references to both the 80 years of Marvel Comics history as well as over a decade of films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Strategic, Homeland, Intervention and Logistics Division is a bit of a mouthful, so it is only fitting that S.H.I.EL.D. agents tend to bite off more than they can chew.

ON THE STREETS – The History of Marvel’s The Defenders

For their groundbreaking crossover miniseries, Marvel’s The Defenders, the creative team behind Marvel’s street-level heroes pulled together characters, worlds, and story elements from four separate series to craft a team-up event like nothing Marvel Television had ever attempted. But there were many steps behind the scenes, and decades worth of stories in the pages of Marvel Comics, that had to happen before the Defenders could be brought to life on film. 

SHADOWS IN HELL’S KITCHEN: The Villains of Marvel’s Jessica Jones

Across three seasons of the groundbreaking series Marvel’s Jessica Jones, the eponymous damaged heroine had to face some true demons, from a mind-controlling creep, to a full-on serial killer, to her own mom. In their own way, each of these antagonists reflects how showrunner Melissa Rosenberg and her team brought Jessica from the more heightened world of the comic book page to hard-hitting reality, dealing with serious themes while doling out crimefighting entertainment.

ALIAS INVESTIGATIONS – The History of Marvel’s Jessica Jones

Marvel’s Jessica Jones was a watershed moment in Super Hero entertainment.

A NEW LUKE – The History of Marvel’s Luke Cage

When Luke Cage first appeared on the pages of Marvel Comics in June 1972, he was heralded as “A strangely unique super-hero.” By modern sensibilities this was a rather clumsy way of highlighting the fact that the brawny, bulletproof, Harlem-based crime fighter was the first African-American hero to ever be given his own title. But it also could have described the way he dressed: in a canary-yellow shirt, with a chain-link belt and a metal tiara.
