Spider-Man & Captain America should flip

See you would think so at first, but honestly their depictions in the comics fits this much more.  Spidey tends to side with the law all the time, even when other heroes don't, until said law is no longer good.  The law may not like him, but in the end, he's one of the more lawful heroes in the universe.   Meanwhile Cap will fight the law the second he so much as disagrees with them.   This is the guy who drops the Captain America title like every other week

I see your point but I could also make the argument of Spidy and Capt'n switchin' spots. That being said, I would love to see somebody do a 5 by 5 chart of Marvel, Video game characters, maybe DC. There's so many gray areas with these characters. Like I would put Deadpool Chaotic Impure.

Yeah, unfortunately I'm not familiar with the 5 by 5 chart.

As for Spidey's and Cap's placements.    Cap has on two separate occasions given up his name because he didn't agree with the goverment, he helps people regardless of any law.  He just happens to work with the law on occasion.   Meanwhile Spidey has a tendecy to seek out the help of law forces whenever he can, the only problem is he has terrible publicity.

Yeah, I agree. I think Captain America's name makes it difficult; It's not America he fights for, it's the ideals and the rights that he and America have in common. (Usually).

As he himself said 

""Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right. This nation was founded on one principle above all else: the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world — No, you move."

Or in a more succinct form

""I'm loyal to nothing, General... except the Dream."

Fairly accurate and on point with the exceptions that Punisher is more Chaotic than Lawful and Galactus is evil by virtue of extinguishing countless lives out of a selfish sense of self-preservation. That's Neutral Evil.

How is someone who follows a strict personal code and refuses to fight law forces chaotic?

Galactus doesn't kill out of a selfish sense of self-preservation, he does it because he has to survive.  He keeps his word and is willing to allow beings to escape doomed planets and will leave them alone if they don't personally attack him.  He shows disgust at those who cause pointless destruction and will personally do something if they're connected to him.    In fact he only started focusing on inhabited worlds because the hunger became too strong for him to take time to find them.

His wanting to survive becomes selfish-self preservation when he decides that billions of lives are worthless if he can keep himself sustained. And where has Galactus displayed a willingness to give inhabitants time to escape a planet? Because I've never seen him do that.

Punisher is Chaotic because while he may not fight police, he does have total contempt for authority and works outside of it, being a killer vigilante who takes matters into his own hands even more than most superheroes do.  He does have a moral code, but chaotic characters can have a code. It just doesn't involve respecting authority. And the Punisher does not respect authority beyond a basic moral standard.

I agree with your views on Punisher, I'd put him at chaotic good. He doesn't give half a fuck about the fact that he's not allowed to kill people, but the good in him makes him respect what the authorities stand for and subsequently refuse to tangle with them. The good in him is the only reason he's a hero. 

I'd have to take gambit508's side on Galactus, however. I think Galactus, being so far above most humans in intelligence, power and just plain size, can't spare any tears for the lesser beings he kills, especially considering he needs to do it.

Just like your neutral good ranger can't spare tears for the game he hunts. Just like you, washing your hands and killing trillions of germs in the process before you prepare food for the homeless. (I assume) If you do it because you have to, it's neutral. If you do it because the death rattle of billions of humans amuses you, it's evil. 

It's not about what they do, it's about why they do it.
