Is What If? Punisher Basically the Snyder Cut of Spider-Man?

Posted by October 8, 2018 Comment

Have you ever wondered what it might look like if Zack Snyder directed a Spider-Man movie? What if he wrote a Spider-Man comic? If he did, we might see something like this week’s What If? Punisher, which asks the question: what if Peter Parker became the Punisher instead of Spider-Man?

In a preview of the comic, we see Spidey’s familiar origin. But when he catches up with the criminal who killed his Uncle Ben, Peter, just like the DCEU, takes the concept of Great Power and Great Responsibility TO THE EXTREME!

That’s right, it’s a world where Spider-Man is a bloodthirsty killer who cares only for vengeance, kind of like Snyder’s vision of Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman in the DCEU. What If? Spider-Man hits stores on Wednesday. Check out the preview below, fellow Snyderbronies!

What If? Punisher
(W) Carl Potts (A) Juanan Ramirez (CA) Chris Stevens
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!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
