Marvel Comics Legacy & Punisher #218 Spoilers: Why Does Frank Castle Become The War Machine?

Marvel Comics Legacy and Punisher #218 Spoilers follow.

And here is how Marvel came up with their Punisher Legacy numbering.

Punisher Central has an issue with Marvel’s Punisher #218 legacy numbering.

So, why does Frank Castle don the War Machine armor in his Punisher crusade? The answer is: Nick Fury Jr.

He wants the Punisher to kill a war criminal who…

…now has former SHIELD agents in his employ in the former Soviet Union. So a win-win by killing Petrov and also covering up SHIELD’s fingerprints. BTW, I didn’t realize Nick Fury Jr. had a bionic eye. If so, why the eye patch?

Anyhow, the weapon Frank Castle can use is old SHIELD tech that is stored at the Air Force.

Frank Castle breaks in and…

…dons the War Machine armor, the weapon, but may…

…keep it longer than the one mission Nick Fury Jr. has sent him on.
