About that Punisher skull
The infamous skull logo was spotted on more than one of the rioters taking part in the violent uprising at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday in Washington, D.C. One particularly disturbing example involved a masked suspect who broke into the Senate building while holding a handful of zip ties and appearing to be in illegal possession of a handgun at his right hip (it is illegalto bring firearms into the Capitol). On the front of his flak jacket, the Punisher’s skull is clearly visible. It’s just the latest, but perhaps most disturbing, example of how Frank Castle and his iconic logo have been misappropriated.
Cultural fascination with the grim and stark symbol, inspired by the German military symbol Totenkopf, or “Death’s Head,” has been going on for years. The skull appeared in the Clint Eastwood 2014 film American Sniper, based on the true story of military sniper Chris Kyle. Fox News opinion host Sean Hannity has worn a pin with the logo in the past. Numerous officers in various police departments around the United States have also adopted the skull, which is mind-boggling when you step back and consider Frank Castle operates, unapologetically, outside the law. Yet last summer during the Black Lives Matter protests, a number of law enforcement officers were seen sporting the skull logo. That angered Punisher co-creator Gerry Conway so much that he launched a fundraising initiative for BLM that brought together artists of color to create T-shirt designs that incorporate the skull.
“The Punisher represents a failure of the Justice system,” Conway told SYFY WIRE in 2019. “He’s supposed to indict the collapse of social moral authority and the reality some people can’t depend on institutions like the police or the military to act in a just and capable way.”
He continued: “The vigilante anti-hero is fundamentally a critique of the justice system, an example of social failure, so when cops put Punisher skulls on their cars or members of the military wear Punisher skull patches, they’re basically siding with an enemy of the system. He is a criminal. Police should not be embracing a criminal as their symbol.”
Marvel officially changed the Punisher logo last year…as suggested by the tweet below.
And with that, this is an open thread.
