Whether we're talking heroes or villains, Marvel characters don't come much darker or meaner than The Punisher, and after a stellar introduction on Season 2 of Daredevil, Frank Castle will finally take center stage in a series of his very own. We have obviously seen live-action versions of The Punisher before, but Jon Bernthal's take on the anti-hero is shaping up to become the most refreshing and exciting version that we have ever seen.

With The Punisher's first season set to pummel us into a binge-watching coma on Netflix on November 17, we figured now would be a good time to take a look back at the character's well-worn on-screen history to point out all the ways that there is room for improvement when it comes to his various film incarnations. On that note, let's dive in and discuss how The Punisher TV show can improve where the movies may have faltered.

Don't Make Frank's Ability To Kill Into A Superpower

Frank Castle's most essential asset in his war against the criminal underworld is his years of experience as a special forces soldier. He has incredible survival instincts, and knows how to plan an enemy assault weeks in advance. The Punisher doesn't just walk into danger half-cocked, but previous films in the Punisher canon have a nasty habit of sometimes showing off how unbelievably good he is with his arsenal of big guns and knives, and making that his primary attribute.

He's more than that, and we want The Punisher TV show to take its time and show us how much Frank thinks out his assassinations and sabotage missions. After all, for an instinct-driven and non-superpowered guy like Frank Castle, it's not just about staying alive in the face of overwhelming odds and a wall of gunfire; it's also a matter of outthinking your enemies at every conceivable turn.
