Quote1.png This feels more and more like fighting a war in someone else's name, fighting a war for politics... victory doesn't feel like victory.

--Frank Castle (Earth-616)

Quote1.png War Journal, Entry Ten -- continued: The Mechanic was my ordinance man in 'Nam. He had a special genius for devising weapons and explosives... a genius that was almost terminated by a claymore mine in Quảng Trị Province. "Maybe its just as well," he said when I first looked him up in the Maryland Veteran's Home... "Guys like us, Captain, we were trained for one thing only... killin'. What good are we to anybody without a war?" At the time, I didn't have a good answer for the Mechanic. I suppose I don't really have one for him even now... but I do have a war. Quote2.png

--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Ninja Training Camp--a commercial mutation of the ancient Japanese way of life--or maybe not. The ninja began as a way of life--of self-preservation against the government. But ninjutsu became a business. Ninjutsu is derived from the written character shinobi, and means to "steal in". All ninja had to be proficient with three major weapons--some were skilled with as many as twenty. The modern ninja looks little like his traditional counterpart. But the purpose remains the same--to steal in, steal secrets, maim, kill and bamboozle your enemies, often at the behest of a wealthy client--or government. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I came to Scully's Ninja Training Camp to find Iris Green, who'd poisoned the middle-weight boxing champ, B.J. Johnson. I found Iris's file seconds before encountering Katherine Yakamoto, daughter of the legendary ninja teacher, Hatsu Yakamoto. Katherine claimed to be on a mission to punish the bogus Scully for his presumption, and I was her unwitting ally. Scully and his men surrounded the house. She split, leaving me holding the bag, so I torched the place and escaped into the surrounding fields... Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)

--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png There're over eleven thousand cabs in New York City. And almost nobody has a good word to say about any of them. But when it's raining New Yorkers keep their opinions to themselves. They hate the cabbies even more. New York cabbies are near legendary for their surliness and indifference. It's their suit of armor. But somebody out there hates them with more than the usual venom. Five cabbies in as many weeks. All done with a .44 Magnum. Probably a Charter Arms Bulldog. David Berkowitz's weapon of choice. No sex angle. No big names. The press is ignoring. The cops have better things to do. Time for me to pull a few late nights. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)

Quote1.png "My way is to cap him in the face and leave him in the street but this way is more ... traditional ..." Quote2.png

--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png "I wont't shoot you, you're an honest cop. But i'm going to shoot him. Even if he goes to prison, he'll be out in five years to do it all over again." Quote2.png

Quote1.png I'm through being anybody's soldier. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I caught a glimpse of Heaven once. The angels showed me. The idea was I'd kill for them. Clean up their mistakes on Earth. Eventually redeem myself. Tried it. Didn't like it. Told them where to stick it. So they brought me up to Heaven, to see what I'd be missing. A wife. A son. A daughter. All finally at peace. I hadn't seen them since they bled out in my arms. Then I was cast down. Back to a world of killers. Rapists. Psychos. Perverts. A brand new evil every minute, spewed out as fast as men can think them up. A world where pitching a criminal dwarf off a skyscraper to tell his fellow scum you're back is a sane and rational act. The angels thought it would be Hell for me. But they were wrong. Welcome back, Frank. Says New York City. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I'm coming for you, Ma Gnucci. I thought I'd let you know so you could plan your funeral in advance. I got your sons. I got your killers. Now I've got your man-behind-the-man. Or man-behind-the-hag in your case, Ma. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I'm disappointed in the choirboy. He didn't bring out the world class supercreeps. Two females and a blind guy. Looks like I'll still be doing all the heavy lifting. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Links disintegrate -- bolt clanks back and forth behind the thudding roar -- brass rains on the sidewalk--the 'sixty rattles out its song. A song I first heard years ago -- of fireteams dug in on the breaks between the paddyfields, of tracer lasering the jungle night, of Hueys screaming through the void -- of Lieutenant Castle getting short and hating it, wanting 'Nam to last forever -- a lullaby come all the way to New York City -- come to sing you to sleep. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png We had a team-up. You were great. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)

Quote1.png We're trying to find the Paguro Family, which has survived everything thrown against them -- me included -- because they're incredibly good at not being found. Other criminals won't talk about them. They're too afraid. If you want to find out anything about the Paguros, you need to be scarier than they are. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png All I need was a reason to be in court also, a trial of my own. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Going against a target guns blazing feels like swimming straight up. I still have to know what kinds of guns to bring, though. Death is immediate... but killing takes patience, or so training says. Sometimes, lots of patience, gathering intel. Been struck in traffic now for 30 minutes. I'm not feeling patient today. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Let's talk outside. Got something for you in the car. Dos Soles brought some weapon in last night. What ever it is, it's not what they used in Mexico. Not chemical. EMP, maybe. Shorted out my NVGs. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)

--Frank Castle (Earth-616)

--Frank Castle (Earth-616)

--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png These men believe they are agents of death. The terrorists think that they bring war. But they don't know how long I've spent in the company of death and war. They don't know... death and war are my allies. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Whatever Kriegkopf had on you died with him. The fact he had something means you're dirty. But that's your business. My business is the maniac you let in was sicced on me. Most people involved in attempts to kill me die. Not you. You get a warning. Don't ever give me cause to visit you again. Like I say I can get in anywhere. Nothing stops me. The latest idiots to try are vapor. Nine millimeters. I'm never further away than that. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png It's okay, Joe. I caught you. Quote2.png

Quote1.png Don't be an idiot. Too many idiots in masks out there already, living in their fantasy dream world. You think heroes don't kill? Heroes get people killed all the time. Ask your boss. Ask Daredevil. Lotsa people died on his watch. Quote2.png

--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png So choices. Maybe you and I fight, which would give that wannabe Crimson Dynamo idiot time to grab Antonov and leave. In which case nobody dies -- unless the red guy kills us while we're fighting over who's got moral superiority. Or instead, I'll just kill them both right now. You don't even have to look, Daredevil. It'll be our little secret. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)

--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I can't thank you enough for your hospitality. Are you sure you're safe out here all alone? Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Wait. Look at them. Look at what they're doing. These aren't monsters. They're people from another realm. Families... just wearing a different skin. That -- that magician. He pulled them into our crossfire. Not a thing I take kindly to. Quote2.png

Quote1.png It don't matter who I am, Fred. It matters what I could be, if you and I don't come to an understanding. I could be God's red right hand. I could be His swift and terrible vengeance. I could be your punishment. Hail Hydra. Quote2.png

Quote1.png Don't tell me when the conflict is over. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png That's where the caped crowd always misses the point. Some enemies you charge head-on. Others you shoot through the head with a high-powered Skrull sniper rifle from four miles away. Quote2.png
--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png So they're idiots. Nobody with that kind of gear is harmless. Just like the last Stilt-Man. They'll get cocky and overconfident and open fire in a crowd to prove a point and people die when idiots get power. Quote2.png

--Frank Castle (Earth-616)
Quote1.png They laugh at the law. The rich ones who buy it and twist it to their whims. The other ones, who have nothing to lose, who don't care about themselves, or other people. All the ones who think they're above the law, or outside it, or beyond it. They know all the law is good for is to keep good people in line. And they all laugh. They laugh at the law. But they don't laugh at me. Quote2.png

Your friend, Sergeant Cole-Alves, she is going to die for you, Captain. She will be found guilty in the eyes of the law and they will execute her.

You chill there, Big Boy! I go find something else to hit you with! Chill, get it? Funny joke! Okay, maybe not.

I thought I could be like you. Be precise and cold and dead and pure like you. But no one can be like you.

The difference is I'm right and they're dead!

I know what this girl's gone through. I've seen it. It isn't her fault, what's happening. We have to help her, not kill her.

They're not arrogant. They're bitter. The only thing they know of life is what they see in us.

One bullet. One shot. One chance to stop me killing Dino Gnucci. It's time for that choice you were telling me about. You can't break loose in time. You haven't the space to throw the gun, maybe knock me off my aim. I've got my back to you. I'm wearing Kevlar. It's got to be a headshot.

If you don't shoot you've got a death on your conscience. A death you could have prevented. If you do shoot, you're a killer.

Matthew Murdock (Earth-616).jpg

What kind of choice is that...?

Oh. I thought it might be because you wanted to make the world safe for good people.

Punisher Vol 5 #8

Ma Gnucci
You scum! You vicious, evil scum! You're no better than I am, Punisher! You think you're better, you think you're on the side of justice, but you're wrong! You're a serial killer, Punisher! You're insane! It's mass murder, whatever you want to call it! It's genocide! What'll you do, keep going 'til we're all dead? Will that make you happy, you sick, twisted creep?! You should put a bullet in your own head, Punisher! That's the only way you'll get any peace! And you know, it too! You're a dead man walking, Punisher! You are damned!

A boat is coming to pick you up in fifteen minutes -- try to hold out.
If the enemy gets past us, my advice is for you to commit suicide.

I don't know if you killed those people or not. I really don't. You've always given cops a pass before, but as you are a nutjob, you may have changed your mind. Heck, one of them may have looked at you funny or called you moo-moo bunny-lips. Whatever, your murderous run is over. You are over, Frank. You're done.

Because it's the only place he can be brought to justice.

Un-huh. Their version of justice looks a lot more like mine than yours. Texas is a death penalty state.

What's the difference? You know Murdock's sending him down there to die. You know that. You know that, and you're making that happen. You want to see him punished just as much as I do.
