In the land of comic books, there’s never just one world. With parallel worlds, multiverses, alternate timelines, and Marvel’s notorious What If series, there are plenty of versions of heroes and villains out there that are completely different than the one you know and love. The same is true of The Punisher. In his original continuity, Frank Castle, created by Gerry Conway in 1974, was a veteran of the Vietnam war who lost his family.
After months of uncertainty as to just when The Punisher would make his solo Netflix debut, fans of the Marvel anti-hero finally get to see him back in action. Unlike a lot of Marvel properties, the team behind The Punisher didn’t try to cram in as many Easter eggs or nods to the source material as possible, but they did sneak in quite a few fun things you might have missed. If you thought you missed a cameo from Stan Lee, or Avengers Tower in the New York skyline, don’t worry, you didn’t.
A hero, a king, a man with a temper who can talk to fish– he’s been the butt of jokes on sitcoms like The Big Bang Theory for years. Aquaman has had plenty of ups and downs in comics since his 1941 debut, but he’s remained one of the most recognizable names in pop culture. When he debuted in the More Fun Comics anthology series, it was as a backup feature. His popularity meant that within the next decade he was ushering in the Silver Age and leading his own solo series.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
