    If you watch the show notice how they treat American Veterans. They are criminals, crazies, victims.......The Punisher, Frank Castle, participated in a covert, illegal, CIA operation, he thought it was legal......and murdered a police officer.....his good friend and fellow soldier, criminal, another soldier is an NRA supporting terrorist bomber.....and another friend of Franks, another special forces soldier, gets beaten with his own prosthetic leg.....

    Yeah...Hollywood wouldn't know how to respect vets if their lives depended on it...

    Me thinks you're thinking into a comic book show too much.

    I just finished watching the series. It was a rather boring angle they took, but I didn’t feel like they were shitting on veterans. It felt more like they were shitting on those who use the military and vets for personal gain. The show is very pro Second Amendment and doesn’t apologize for killing thugs. I thought it was hilarious the way they made the gun grabbing Senator look like a buffoon.

    ALso, how much of this is actually true to the comics. Admittedly, the Punisher is not one of my favorite characters, but I do know his backstory is one where the mob killed his family and he was a special ops guy.

    Like any adaptation of comic books they do take some liberties with the character, but one thing that remains true is that the Punisher is a very violent story. So they made some soldiers victims, criminals or nuts. Were they supposed to make the soldiers save kittens from trees?
