Ultimately, it isn’t until nearly four hours in, when Frank is completely battered and torn down that we finally arrive at the inevitable destination of The Punisher’s iconic backstory. Bernthal delivers top-shelf badassery as Frank is tortured; outwitting, outlasting and definitely out-sassing his captors. Meanwhile, the ever reckless and intrepid Karen is investigating his family home, uncovering the details that paint a vivid picture of what he lost. A family, murdered and gone, and no justice for the crime.

Daredevil succeeds where others have failed by leaning into Frank Castle, monstrous appetite for violence and all, without hesitation or apology, then turning around and doing the same for his humanity. The highlight of Bernthal’s MVP performance, and his arc throughout the season, is the way the man — who he was before his tragedy — occasionally shines through the bloodied, swollen, and bruised visage that becomes his vigilante mask. You know it’s wrong, you know  he ‘s wrong, but you just can’t help but like the guy. You can’t help feeling a strange sense of loyalty to him, a strange respect.

That dynamic is played out beautifully in his relationship with Karen. She wants to believe in him, just as we do, but every time his cunning and charm fall away to reveal the bloodlust beneath, and they always do, Karen’s face is a reminder of the ghastly reality of his crimes. One minute they’re bonding over diner coffee, the next she’s hiding from gunfire under a countertop, trying to block out the sound of Frank stabbing a man to death.  Daredevil never lets you cheer for The Punisher too long.

O n the first weekend of October, I visited Bono in Cancún, Mexico, where U2 were on a weeklong break before the second North American leg of the band's Vertigo Tour. Bono and U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr. were both there with their families — in fact, it was Elvis Mullen's tenth birthday that weekend, and a barbecue was planned at the house Bono had rented on the beach, where he, his wife of twenty-three years, Ali, and their four children were staying.

Our talks range from the early history of the band, to his admiration of hip-hop, to his troubled relationship with his father. Bono is the rare major artist who speaks of his life and work with candor and transparency. He can be as harsh on the subject of his own albums as any rock critic. The interview here represents perhaps twenty percent of our conversation. But for Bono, that conversation never ends — he means to involve his audience in it for as long as he can, and we are all the better for it.

First off: Where do you get those sunglasses?
Bulgari. A lot of people think that, when they see a "B" on the side, that it's just my own megalomania. Only half the time it is. I'm the Imelda Marcos of sunglasses.
