Punisher's Clothing Choice Is Rather Suspect

Punisher's Clothing Choice Is Rather SuspectOkay, so he wears a skull on his chest, which brings to mind a rather famous Mitchell and Webb sketch. He's not known for the wisest of clothing choices.

But does Punisher's red skull shirt on the cover of the new Thunderbolts comic for Marvel NOW hint at something else?

If not, why is he wearing it? Would a crime fighter in the Marvel
Universe, and a military veteran at that, proudly wear a giant red skull
on his shirt?

Considering that, in the Marvel Universe at least, the Red Skull is the poster boy for Nazi fascism…

I mean, we've established Punisher has never exactly had great dress sense. And he has had slightly dodgy politics. But he is unlikely to have Adolf Hitler posters around his bedroom.

Or paint swastikas on his bullets…
