Marvel’s Punisher Now Has Thanos’ Same Origin Story

Changing a character’s motivations in this way can be very controversial. Both Thanos and the Punisher are ruthless killers (on a very different scale, of course). Originally, one became so because of a philosophical tendency to nihilism which led him to love the personification of Death, the other because he witnessed the murder of his family in a shooting. Now, both characters have been manipulated in some way because they’ve been seen as “the chosen one” by another entity, which takes some agency away from their decisions and development. In Thanos’ case, this is less obvious due to his origin association with death, but for the Punisher, this is a major shift, as it makes the event traumatic to his origin story. less relevant now.

Thanos and the Punisher actually have a comic book story in common, with an alternate future version of Frank (who becomes the Cosmic Ghost Rider in the eponymous series) deciding to raise baby Thanos to create a better future. The two characters now share an even greater bond, as the same Marvel writer decided to significantly alter their origins in a very similar way, making them both destined for a future of death and bloodshed. Thanos and the Punisher have both been manipulated by powerful entities into becoming who they are, which begs the question of how much of the massive amount of death they have caused so far can really be blamed on them.
