Marvel Comics’ positioning of two typically grounded heroes as dark gods are among its most fascinating features. After murdering Ares, Frank Castle has evolved into a supernatural Punisher and the new God of War.
His leadership of the Hand and the warlord The Beast, who has decided to purify the globe, gives him the ability to fly and wield other enchanted weapons in his quest. Daredevil (Matt Murdock) has created his team, the Fist, and wed Elektra in a ceremony that sharpened his senses, feeling that the Hand must be destroyed.
With the ability to use magic, Daredevil enlisted the help of criminals like Bullet and Stilt-Man to fight Frank’s posse to break the law in a way that the Avengers would never. Fans have discovered who is stronger in Daredevil #8 (by Chip Zdarsky, Marco Checchetto, Matthew Wilson, Erick Arciniega, and VC’s Clayton Cowles), and it doesn’t bode well for the future.
Matt and Frank rush at one other as the two crews fight. They quarrel over theological terminology, and Frank accuses the Christian god of stealing his family. That is why he trusts the Beast, who both brought Maria back and is attempting to bring his children back to life.
But Matt views Frank as a monster and understands from what happened in Shadowland that the Beast represents the devil.
Frank puts up a fierce fight with the help of his martial arts, weapons, and guns. However, Matt’s motivation and tenacity are too much for him, especially with magic on his side. Daredevil ends up beating Frank and gloating because he has always been one of Marvel’s best fighters.
But Matt has to go tend to the Punisher’s dragon, so he can go away. Matt uses his abilities to calm the dragon’s wrath by entering its thoughts. He doesn’t want it to burn his pals or get damaged by them. It finally takes off in tranquility.
This proves Matt has more physical strength, but he can also free people from the Hand’s mental control. Perhaps he can use this to exorcise Frank and the other troops in the future. This is intriguing since it may relate to the fact that Matt served as the Beast’s vessel, proving he is the antidote to the Hand.
But it’s important to keep in mind that Frank, while licking his wounds, might implore the Beast for additional strength, resulting in the creation of an enraged nuclear weapon. Frank will undoubtedly return with a new plan of attack given his knowledge of Matt’s immense power and the fact that Elektra stole the Hand’s resurrection amulet during the war.
In the end, this foreshadows a more terrifying conflict, one in which the world will require the Avengers and Doctor Strange’s enigmatic Illuminati more than ever. Punisher is about to lose control in his quest for vengeance, but whether or not he succeeds, there will be a lot of casualties.
As a result, Matt might use more of his strength to eliminate Frank, creating a terrible tale for the two illustrious stewards of justice.
