Last week, Marvel Comics teased the debut of a new character who will take up the mantle of The Punisher from Frank Castle, and during tonight's Heroes, Hulks, and Super-Soldiers panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the individual's identity was revealed.
A brand-new series from award-winning writer David Pepose (Savage Avengers, Moon Knight: City of the Dead) and artist Dave Wachter (Planet of the Apes, X-Men Legends) will introduce retired S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Joe Garrison as the ultra-violent vigilante.
"In this action-packed new PUNISHER saga, Frank Castle has disappeared, but evil will always need to be punished. With all-new threats rising to claim innocent victims, criminals will need to beware of a dangerous vigilante hunting them from the shadows. Enter a new Punisher: retired S.H.I.E.L.D. black ops agent Joe Garrison. But what brings him back into action? What put Joe Garrison on his path of vengeance? And when the smoke clears, will he even make it out alive?"
