Marvel's The Punisher: 10 Best Moments

1. Frank Finally Suits Up (Episode 11, "Danger Close")

Many Punisher fans will no doubt be left a little underwhelmed that it takes Frank so long to wear his classic white skull attire, because aside from a brief glimpse in the show's first episode, he doesn't actually suit up as The Punisher until the eleventh episode.

When he finally does, though, it's a glorious sequence, with Frank slaughtering a fleet of Anvil's goons who assault his and Micro's base, utilising his full set of skills to dismantle the squad, and looking damn good while he's doing it.

It's just a matter of time before Frank ends up using an explosive-filled severed head to cause mayhem, of course, after which he continues annihilating the hit squad with guns and more explosives (complete with a gnarly shot of one thug's guts hanging out, because why not?).

You can certainly argue that the scene goes on too long and its fetishisation of all the violence clashes jarringly with anything it might actually be trying to say thematically, but it also features Frank Castle at his most unstoppable and bada**.
