Characters Appearing: Punisher
Punisher Holiday Special #1
Issue(s): Punisher Holiday Special #1
Granted, for the Punisher, "original content" just means new people to shoot. The first story has the son of a mobster that the Punisher killed setting a trap for the Punisher in a shopping mall. This allows the Punisher to express some opinions on the commercialization of Christmas...
...and shoot a bunch of people in the face.
He does get into the spirit of the season.
There's also a runaway teenage girl hiding in the mall, and he plays Santa to her...
...and in the end makes sure she goes back to her mother and presses charges against her abusive father.
I did get a good gift idea while looking at the ads in the mall. I hope i can still get this action figure on eBay.
A second, shorter, story also takes place circa Christmas, but the Punisher has gone to a small town in Maine, so i guess he's got a really busy holiday season. He's keeping an eye on a family whose father become a witness against the mob, and he makes sure that the mob's hitmen don't kill him. Merry Christmas!
The boy in the family isn't happy about having to leave his old home because of his dad, but the Punisher sets him straight. Such a nice role model.

The Anabolic Warrior was all the rage in those days -- at least until Bulk Hogan made his big comeback.
