Punisher, a badass vigilante that while cool like Batman, but unlike him has no moral problems with pulling the trigger and ridding the streets of some of the worst criminals for good. I guess that makes him my favorite anti-hero too

where can I read the comics though? and where would I even start


Well there's marvel unlimited for one. It's basically a netflix-esque streaming service where you can read almost all the marvel comics in existence up to those released about 6 or 7 months ago. I recommend physical copies if you can afford them however and unless you want to go hardcore and collect the old issues your best bet is graphic novels that collect them all together. There are many different ways to read Dr. Strange through this but the best way to start will probably be with the Marvel masterworks: Doctor Strange series. The first volume can be found on amazon for $25.

https://www.amazon.ca/Doctor-Strange-Vol-Marvel-Masterworks/dp/0785111808

If you'd rather look at other GNs your local comic and book shops will definitely be happy to help you out.

thank you so much, do you have any idea how many volumes there are? and spin offs if there is such a thing in the comic book universe - like I said I don't read comics I domanga and anime lol



It occurs to me I should also probably mention that there is still an ongoing Doctor Strange series. I can't say for sure how good it is, but you can subscribe to it through Marvel's website with a 40% discount and free US shipping so that's pretty good if price is a big concern of yours.

https://subscriptions.marvel.com/store/ipd.asp?spid=1123

While getting that link I also found out that there is actually a Doctor Strange spinoff I didn't know about that just started. So that's there if you want it.

Yeah that one apparantly collects the first 5 issues of the current series. This comes down to personal taste, obviously, but I always preferred getting my comics physically rather than digitally. To use thematically appropriate terminology, it loses a bit of "magic" when presented in a digital format for me. If you're going for the digital distribution, however, I would recommend the Marvel Unlimited service I mentioned earlier, where you pay a subscription fee and get digital access to just about every marvel comic ever.

Damn right! It's about time someone other than me recognizes her awesomeness. There's been some foreshadowing implying she's coming to the marvel cinematic universe soon too. Depending on how her upcoming role in Riverdale will turn out I might be rooting for Shannon Purser to get the role.

Mine was Wolverine for a long time, but Daredevil has a depth of character I now appreciate more. I'm waiting for a female character to impress me yet.

I'd be surprised if anyone criticised you about that. Reading comic books is a pretty niche interest these days; you have to go out of your way to find a place that sells recent comic books, especially if you're into Indy comics.Fortunately, digital services like ComiXology have made it much easier to keep up with current comic books.

...

Anyway, if you're into Doctor Strange comics there's is one story in particular that I highly recommend. More than a comic book, a genuine graphic novel worthy of the distinction - Doctor Strange & Doctor Doom: Triumph & Torment.

https://www.amazon.com/Dr-Strange-Doom-Triumph-Torment/dp/0785184546/

This story is both one of the greatest Doctor Doom stories ever told and one of the greatest Doctor Strange stories ever told. Basically, after a contest of mystical arts, Doom enlists the help of Strange on a mission to rescue the soul of Doom's mother from Hell. You'll rarely find Marvel stories as bold and ambitious as Triumph & Torment.

Oooo, I stopped watching the marvel movies tbh, but if they introduce her I'm totally watching. She's so perfect :' ) Most underrated superhero ever

She-Hulk, Steve Rogers (both in comics and in the MCU), and Gertrude Yorkes are my favourites.

The cartoon Wolverine, because he's manlier than his movie counterpart. Sorry Hugh Jackman, but you're not manly enough to be Wolverine. I also think that the video game Frank Castle is more badass than the one played by that pretty boy Thomas Jane, who doesn't even look like a vigilante. The real Punisher would feed bad guys to the piranhas, put them in a chimp or rhino cage as well as dunking their heads in a deep fryer.
