Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher has never used a Stark powered suit of armo before, but it looks like that's about to change.

At San Diego Comic-Con's Cup O' Joe panel, a fan asked if Frank Castle is going to wear the War Machine armor in Legacy, and Marvel editor Nick Lowe confirmed that Castle will indeed become the War Machine.


"Frank Castle is absolutely putting on the War Machine armor, but we can't give any more details," Lowe answered (via comicbook).

Marvel's teaser cover from Legacy teased a possible mash-up of The Punisher and War Machine, and it's good to know that has finally been confirmed. Castle is currently working for HYDRA leader Captain America as they hunt down Black Widow and her Red Room group of heroes.
