The Wrong Side: Punisher vs. Spider-Man, Daredevil and Wolverine

In this feature, I examine comic book fights that were particularly notable in the wrong side winning (or at least that the fight wasn’t won the “right” way). This really isn’t a big deal, of course, as it doesn’t really matter if the “wrong” person won a fight. But it’s fun to talk about!

If you want to suggest a fight for future inclusion in this feature, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com. Don’t suggest a fight in the comments!

Today, based on a suggestion from a whole bunch of readers, we look at the time that the Punisher made Spider-Man, Daredevil and Wolverine look like a confederacy of dunces…

Comic Book Legends Revealed #569

Welcome to the five hundred and sixty-ninth in a series of examinations of comic book legends and whether they are true or false. Click here for an archive of the first five hundred (I actually haven’t been able to update it in a while). This week, was Mary Jane Watson almost UGLY? Was Peter Parker from the 1990s Spider-Man animated series based on Nicholas Hammond from the 1970s Spider-Man TV series? And how did the “Marvel Method” lead to Marvel having multi-part stories?

Let’s begin!

It’s still time enough for March MODOK Madness, so that’s the theme! Note that the official NCAA March Madness ends in early April, so so too does March MODOK Madness end in early April! This year, it’s suggest celebrities that you’d like to see drawn as MODOKs!

Top Five Justice League Origins

Here is an archive of all the past top five lists I’ve done over the years.

In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we saw the origin of the DC Cinematic Universe version of the Justice League. I thought it would be fun, then, to look at the top five origins of the main Justice League team in the DC Universe (Pre-Crisis, Post-Crisis and New 52). So no spin-off teams, just the main team.
