The Punisher

A black ops veteran and skilled marine, Frank Castle's life was irreparably changed when he and his family were caught in the crossfire between the Blacksmith, the Mexican Cartel, the Kitchen Irish, and the Dogs of Hell motorcycle club. Shot in the head, Frank fell into a coma, but pulled through. Upon awakening, Frank launched into a brutal killing spree, becoming the most wanted man in New York, until he was captured by Daredevil, who helped Frank eliminate the remaining Kitchen Irish. Put on trial with Daredevil's secret identity Matt Murdock as his attorney, Frank was sentenced to life in prison, where he forged an alliance with Wilson Fisk to escape and track down the Blacksmith. Working alongside Karen Page, Frank discovered that it was in fact his former commanding officer. Disgusted, Frank executed him, then vowed to continue hunting the scum that have terrorized people for too long.

Jack Reacher


A former United States Army Military Police Officer and currently a drifter and freelance private investigator who works investigation cases for people in need. In the Army he was a Major, who was demoted to Captain and who worked his way back the Major before retiring. In 2012, a man named Charlie drove a van to a parking garage and readied a sniper rifle across towards a sporting stadium. He shot five people walking past the stadium, killing them all and leaving evidence to make the cops believe that James Barr had been the killer.

Emerson, the lead detective on the case, investigated the scene and found a quarter with fingerprints, leading to Barr. The police raided Barr's house and arrested him for the murders, finding more evidence inside of his house. During his interrogation, Barr did nothing, but write to the police on a piece of paper to get Jack Reacher. 


The Punisher

Jack Reacher


Punisher / Reacher

Intelligence -- 89 / 90, Reacher has great memory, attention to detail, always looking for the truth. Punisher's also quite intelligent. We just haven't seen enough of him to compare. Tactically Punisher is probably more intelligent, whereas Reacher is better at improvising.

Strength-- 92 / 90, Frank has taking down DD requires impressive strength. He also staggered Kingpin, while his arms were tied. Reacher's got nothing on him, but he has striking strength that he is strong enough to punched through a windshield door with ease and smashing a steel plate into pieces with his bare fist.

Speed-- 89 / 90, Jack loves to run and seemed to be more agile and quick on his feet. Punisher got clipped with a lot of shots Reacher probably would have dodged. Then again, Punisher was fighting DD, his reflexes might be as good or better but his hand speed and travel speed isn't up to par.

Marksmanship -- 95 / 95, Punisher has more and better accuracy feats. Reacher prefers H2H but is also a good shot.

Durability/Endurance-- 95 / 88, without question. The man's a tank. To KO him, you have pistol whip him 6 times, choke him out with a chain and then smash his head into a brick wall. Reacher was badly dazed by a glancing blow by a baseball bat.

Physical Health -- 95 / 88. Punisher is brain damaged and takes more physical damage then Reacher so he's probably in worse shape.

Experience-- 94 / 92, This is close. Reacher was a Military Police, even if he might have served in that capacity behind the scenes, Punisher has more combat experience and from the TV show and has more experience against far deadlier odds.

Training-- 98 / 95, Punisher's special forces training is second to none.

Hand to Hand skills -- 99 / 99, Reacher seems to have better H2H, he relies on it more at least. While Castle, as a former marine with years of experience, is a very dangerous, fierce, and lethal hand-to-hand combatant, holding his own against the highly skilled fighter Daredevil, even briefly gaining the upper hand against him in their first encounter.
