Jon Bernthal's take on Frank Castle loomed large over Season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil, but Marvel's Punisher was MIA for The Defenders miniseries — but don't worry — he's back and sporting a classic, comic look to boot.

Fresh off that dark teaser included in the post-credit scenes of The Defenders, Marvel has dropped an official pic (above) from Bernthal's solo Punisher series showing him sporting some body armor emblazoned with his signature skull logo. Not surprisingly, he looks very mean and very ready to bash some skulls.

Bernthal's version of the character became an immediate fan favorite on Daredevil, as the actor brought some of the trademark intensity he was known for over on The Walking Dead. As he prepares to anchor his own show, it looks like the producers are ready to give us a classic take (or at least look) on what fans know and love.

The first season of The Punisher is tentatively set to premiere later this year.
