The second version of Marvel’s The Punisher and a marked improvement on the first (made in 1989 and starring post-Rocky IV Dolph Lundgren—so not good). Thomas Jane is Frank Castle, whose family is murdered and he is left for dead by ruthless businessman Howard Saint (John Travolta). Of course, by its very definition being left for dead doesn’t mean you’re actually dead. Translation: Castle dons a T-shirt with a skull face adorning it, and sets out for revenge. Jane would be succeeded by Ray Stevenson in 2008’s Punisher: War Zone, but for the best interpretation of the character check out Jon Bernthal in season two of Netflix’s Daredevil.
