Aside from Punisher #1, What If... Peter Parker became The Punisher #1 was the second most expected title from a comic book this year for me. Especially with Carl Potts, former Punisher editor, and writer back after more than 20 years. He's most known for writing The Punisher: War Journal Vol. 1.

This issue marks the last issue of The Punisher using War Machine's armor. Following the Secret Empire debacle, Matthew Rosenberg ended Frank's time in the suit in the most honorable way he could.
