My guess is that he works some kind of a ladder. And there's the means to consider, too. Most of the villains he goes after are recidivist monsters who, once put under trial, will get out with barely more than a slap on the wrist, and do it again, and again, and again. What he said about Otto is actually right: he hasn't killed that many.
While people like the Kingpin, who are not considered "super" by both the people and the law? He's got a hell of a lot more blood on his hands.
He does go after some supervillains, usually people like the Jester. Meaning people in his weight category, so to speak.
As he said, too, the "superheroes" can go after the super bads. I mean, they already do. But remind me how many times they go after a prostitution ring, a slave ring, a drug ring, etc? While it happens sometimes, most of the time it doesn't.
Frank focuses on the part of the work that the other heroes ignore, because they're focusing on the more flashy opponents.
But let's try to imagine Frank going after... hum, let's say Victor. As in Doom. First, he'd have to go through the usual guardbots... who are all stronger than your usual thug. He'd have to use a lot of equipment to deal with just these... equipment that is inferior to Doom's and his guards, and costs a lot of money... a money Frank can't access that easily because he is an outlaw. Then let's say he beats the guards and manages to beat down the Doom in front of him... Doombots anyone? They look and speak like ol'Vicky. And the only thing they DON'T have is his magics. Frank against Victor? no more Punisher.
That's just an exemple, and there are many supervillains who are more in Frank's category, but more or less that's it i think.
