Its a different universe altogether. In the 616 universe Punisher is younger but in MAX he's an old guy who's a vet from Nam.

Uh..unless there was some huge circle-logic retcon that I never heard about, mainstream MU Frank Castle is indeed a Viet Nam vet. Always has been.

As for the initial question, I tend to disregard most of the MAX line as a whole. Generally speaking, it isn't referenced anywhere, so its hard for me to think of it as in-continuity.
