lol. cute. well. I think we've both seen V for Vendetta(and if u havent u have no right to debate on this fight), and we can both see that guns arent too effective. shoot him in the head u say? his mask is metal, but regardless. V is way too stealthy for Frank. V would definitely have the drop on him & sneak up on Pun slice his adams apple before he even knew what was commin.
oh an btw. a Class IIIA kevlar vest is more than enough to repel shrapnel
Dont try me son , I had the tpb FAR before the movie came out.
Punisher is more then prepped for this and V's mask isn't metal. Gun's aren't affective ? Now YOU must be the one who didn't see the film/read the book , considering a gun was the very thing that did V in.
well if u've seen the movie then I know u can obviously tell me that V is very, very durable and that a couple of bullets isnt even close to being enough to do V in before V kills him. yes, hes only protected in the chest area, but considering he took close to 100 bullets straight up while wearing plate mail armor which isnt even bulletproof by any means, shows that Frank isnt going to easily kill him. and plus, that doesnt even matter. V'd would have the drop on Frank anyway, Franks not even on V's level of stealth skill.
well to me, that just sounds like its ur opinion. because ive never heard from anyone else that that was PIS. if u paid attention in the movie, it said V had enhanced physical attributes which included durability, because when they tested the virus on him, it made him even stronger and more durable or immune(less likely to die), and he was able to withstand that much firepower for just enough time to live to kill them, but then died after that. he still died, it just didnt kill him immediately. and the platemail would have helped actually with the bullets, it just wouldnt have stopped them completely like kevlar would.
The Wachowski brothers couldn't pull a Sin City and port the entire book into a film (To be quite honest I doubt hacks like them could). Due to varying factors , so they changed several parts of the plot.
One of these is the Major focus upon Finch , within the book it took a different twist and Finch ended up confronting V and shot him once (possibly thrice) with a revovler. Due to the aforementioned early plot changes (and the Wachowski brothers love of 'bullet time') they ended V with a cliched 'showdown'.
They then resumed where the book left off with him crawling back to Evey to die.
So V's mere survival is all down to the Wachowski's making a error.
Also V's abilites are/were never centered on his durability. Book wise it's Speed/Strength and intelligence. In the Movie it's just reflexes and his Intelligence

V had enhanced durability. it even said it in the movie that when they tested him with the virus, he was unaffected. so thats a dead give away and testing it more on him enhanced that even more.
and sometimes movies just arent exactly true to the comics with the way things happened in the story. thats y theres movie versions of some comic characters and the original versions in the comics.
yyea, but that was like in what. the 70's with his first appearance. i dont even think thats canon anymore. now Pun would never be able to tag Spidey especially if he cant tag Daredevil. besides, why am i even having this discussion, this is MOVIE Punisher.
All those bullets were not properly aimed at V's head. When going for a kill you aim for the head. If those 100 bullets were aimed to his head he would have died instantly. Every time you aim make it for the head and you will get an instant kill. With all the ammo Pun is given, he will land headshots.
I mean for god sake the guy kept taking bullet after bullet after bullet. You would think that after a couple of shots and after seeing that V was not moving, those damn idiots would start aiming for the head. That is what I or any other reasonable person would do.
