But in recent years the symbol has begun to be used in extreme right-wing and white supremacist circles. Due to this situation, Marvel decided to give the character a twist and changed the skull logo. Interestingly, long before this, the Captain America he already predicted the controversy with the symbol he uses Frank Castle.
During the Civil WarCap’s faction was desperate to recruit more people to his cause, so he turned to The Punisher knowing that he would do the job that was asked of him, on the condition that he would only use non-lethal weapons.

Gimple, Mark Texeira, and Frank D’Armatapublished in 2013, long after the Civil War, Frank Castle he remembers the conversation he had back in the day with Cap. steve rogers he told him that he didn’t like him, not because he was a psychopath or a murderer, but because of his symbol. The skull transforms Frank into an idea, something that can inspire others to follow his bloody path. The Cap He knows perfectly well what this implies, since he is a living symbol and knows the consequences of his actions and that of the rest of the superheroes and vigilantes.
