Frank Castle has been many things in his vigilante career, but he's never been given a Stark powered suit of armor. That looks like it is going to change.
During the Cup O' Joe panel at San Diego Comic-Con, a question was asked concerning Frank Castle's role in Legacy, specifically if he is going to taking on the War Machine armor. ComciBook.com was on hand when Marvel editor Nick Lowe erased any doubt.
"Frank Castle is absolutely putting on the War Machine armor, but we can't give any more details," said Lowe.
Marvel teased a possible mash-up of the two in a teaser cover from Legacy, but nothing else has been said about it until now. Frank Castle is currently working for Hydra leader Steve Rogers (even now that is still very weird to write), tracking down Black Widow and her Red Room group of heroes.
How he gets from his current role in Secret Empire to somewhere along the line putting on the War Machine armor is unknown. Also unknown is if Tony Stark is even aware of him taking the suit, as Stark is still comatose in his life pod and the A.I. version didn't fare too well either in Secret Empire #6.
Either way, it promises to be an entertaining if brutal roller coaster ride.
