This seems to be a recurring theme with Ennis, isn't it? But damn, this one was cringey. O'Brien was a lot better, and at least by A Train Called Love he seems to have perfected the formula.

Uh, is Painkiller Jane being a crazy yandere an actual thing, or did Ennis just pull that out of his ass?

She's got enough issues to fill out six TPBs, but yandere or clingy she very much ain't.

Oh... okaaay...

So Ennis basically rolled up to this established female character who basically operates in the same heroic bloodshed wheelhouse as the Punisher, and turned her into a sex kitten Punisher group for no reason.

Not even remotely the same wheelhouse.

Long story short, she's an ex cop who got caught out during an undercover drug sting, wound up getting overdosed with some of their latest product, spent several years in a coma and one day woke up with supercharged healing. She's called "Painkiller" Jane because she's pretty much addicted to them by now.

She works with her former partner who's still a cop, and another friend that's a forensic examiner and tries to help people out where the law can't quite reach.

Yes, sometimes that involves shooting people, occasionally even a lot of people, but generally the objective involves achieving justice, not just as big a body count as possible.

A Punisher/PKJ crossover would be more likely to involve her hunting him down and kneecapping him to shut down his insane murder spree, then give him a lengthy shouting to as to why his "Mobsters killed my family and this is all I know" explanation is fucking bullshit before deciding that no, she doesn't actually *care* about his justifications, he's going to prison and she's got actual work to do.

I meant more in general terms of "stories where lots of people get splattered with firearms", but fair enough.
