WITH GREAT POWER… When Peter Parker's Uncle Ben is ruthlessly killed by a burglar Peter let escape, he vows to never let the same fate befall another innocent bystander. From then on, he stands as a figure of cold retribution. Criminals beware - the guilty caught in this spider's web will be PUNISHED. But will Parker stand triumphant…or shattered by this twist of fate? The friendly neighborhood takes a different turn in this What If adventure, positing a very different sense of responsibility for the man who will be known as THE PUNISHER, as his battles against villains like the GREEN GOBLIN take a new path!

BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy


The absence of 'The Nick Fury One Good Eye Looker Upon', and the presence of an astounding amount of narration are drawbacks in this 'What If?' issue. There's so many years of Spidey's, I mean Punisher's, career to cover, that to get from Amazing Fantasy to issue #122 in just 22 pages feels rushed. It would have been great for Marvel to give Carl Potts an oversized issue to flesh out some of this, especially as it sets up for a sequel.

It does have its moments, and seeing a murdering Peter Parker bounce back and forth between homicides and wheatcakes has a strong, if odd, appeal.


I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
