Wildcat Vs. The Punisher




I was a bit disappointed that Ted Grant was introduced on Arrow and not much was ever done with him.  There was a cool moment where he sparred with Oliver Queen and the latter actually used a boxing glove arrow on him, but Grant himself still has not gotten the chance to shine.  Now that the Justice Society looks to be a big part of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, I am hoping that Ted's Wildcat side will finally be explored further.

"Psst!"
That should be "you're", not "your"...

Good cover, though, and it would be nice if DC actually brought back not just Wildcat himself but the entire JSA into their comics: I read 'DC Universe Rebirth #1' last night, and that hints at the eventual possibility...
Who could possibly forget, or not have enjoyed, [for example] the "Raging Cat" story?

Oh, and according to a comment by Black Canary in one issue of 'Birds of Prey' when Wildcat was guest-starring there, "Grant's Tomb" was a term that commentators used to describe the area within Ted's [lengthy] reach during boxing matches...

Where is Punisher aiming his gun at? Wildcat say ouch?

Re: the cover? A masterpiece (as usual).

Re: a live-action "televersion" of Wildcat? It might be more suitable if Fox Network had introduced him on GOTHAM during Season 3.

Postscript @ Simreeve: evidently, he corrected that slight snafu in the second word balloon.

Cary, yes -Ted Grant training Bruce and Selina on Gotham would be perfect!

Feel free to ignore, but what about one with he Shadow and The Spectre, or even one where The Shadow becomes the Spectre?

Just a thought, feel free to ignore.

Always good to see Wildcat.

Speaking of shadows: I just got back from X-MEN: APOCALYPSE. Not bad! Although, there's one fight scene that might've been lifted from Xavier's first comic book meeting with the Shadow King (alias Abdul Faoul). Rather than the story arc that first introduced En Sabah Nur to the Friends Of Old Marvel.

Oops! My bad. That should've read "...(alias Amahl Farouk)."

That image could also have had the Phantom in place of Wildcat. The contrast in skulls between the Punisher's shirt and the Phantom's belt and ring would be interesting to see. Actually, I'd love to see the Phantom shoot the Punisher's guns from his hands.
