This Punisher: The Platoon exclusive details Frank’s first tour of Vietnam


The A.V. Club

Frank Castle’s military experience is an essential part of his transition into his Punisher vigilante persona, and writer Garth Ennis is dedicated to exploring how Frank’s time in the Vietnam War shaped him into the criminal killer he would become. His 2003 Born miniseries looked at Frank’s final tour in Vietnam, recounting the massacre at Firebase Valley Forge that brought out his dark side and forever changed him, but that darkness was lingering beneath the surface before that traumatic incident. Punisher: The Platoon is a prequel to Born that jumps back to Frank’s first tour of Vietnam, when he’s a young soldier who has yet to make his first kill. The six-issue miniseries reunites Ennis with his Punisher MAX and Fury MAX collaborator Goran Parlov, and these creators have a deep understanding of Frank’s character that makes them the ideal team to delve into this major period of The Punisher’s life.
