Default MCU's answer to Death Wish and John Wick

Would you consider this to be the marvel television/cinematic universe's equal to both films?

Death Wish maybe, John Wick not so much. The Punisher, especially Jon Bernthal's version reminds me more of Rambo than John Wick.

Not really, this show pretty much tried to avoid that. Death Wish and John Wick are just wish fulfillment films, something terrible happens to the leads to justify intense violence, just enough that the audience can root for them. This show had a little more nuance than that, specially in the finale where the climax was Frank saving a stand in for his family and decide to find help with a support group (one of the most interesting place to leave the season with) as oppose to "kill them all" thing most people were expecting. Not saying it's necessarily a better decision or a huge difference, I personally liked that more, but they definitely leaned him much closer to a hero than an anti-hero.

Rambo First Blood is a much better comparison.
