The Punisher TV show appears to be a gritty and realistic portrayal of urban vigilantism, but scratch the surface and it is as much a fantasy as Doctor Strange. No one can do what Frank Castle does. It doesn’t matter how well trained or determined you are, one unarmed man cannot fight a room full of armed goons and win. Not to mention, Castle’s superhuman threshold for pain and the fantastical notion that this is a world where villains are always punished for their misdeeds.
