"In a way, it’s kind of a “Dexter”-y plot set-up — you have an antihero who’s a vigilante, who enjoys getting into the minds of these people that, on face value, he would just shoot in the face. That’s the basic plot set-up. It’s really a fun set-up, and I get to do a lot with it. I think the main underlying sentiment that makes it a fun book to write is, besides Deadpool, a lot of these Punisher-type characters are very un-self-conscious and very serious. Greg is kind of affable at this point, because he gets this new lease on life. The whole premise is, he never really enjoyed it — he had a pretty horrible existence as the Foolkiller — so he’s offered a chance, in a way I won’t detail too much, to have this job as a shrink, and to have a sort of normal life. He wants that.

If anyone read my “X-Men: Worst X-Man Ever” miniseries, that was about being an outsider in the mutant community. For Greg, he’s kind of an outsider in the normal person community, because he was a friggin’ vigilante and he’s actually a lunatic. I think all of my work will probably have that theme. If you read any of my creator-owned stuff, there’s always some kind of fish out of water-ish scenario, because that’s my neurotic thing."

You know... I actually liked the original swashbuckling outfit so much more than the current one.

Also, Greg must have gone to the same online school to become a psychiatrist that Nightcrawler did to become a priest. Since it usually takes about 8 years, and he did it in like, a few months. I wonder if there's a guy like the Taskmaster for speed-learning and handling out fake degrees. :)

SHIELD had (has?) a division of telepaths, maybe they can download information to operatives, like how Xavier would telepathically download languages into the X-Men's heads?

Trauma became a government shrink in the span of a few months. Maybe willingness to handle superpowered crazies allows them to be lax with professional standards?

Heck, even the full-on gimp suit from the Steve Gerber series is better. The purple armor is just boring.

PLUS it makes him look like Paladin, so double-boring.

Pants are overrated!

Hmm, I believe I've never seen this guy but the issue seems rather curious (though a bit rushed). I've got Millar vibes from it somehow.
