The life of Frank Castle shattered when the mob killed his wife and children for witnessing a gangland execution. Distraught and vengeful, Frank donned a costume styled on an enemy sniper he’d fought during the war and became the killer vigilante known as the Punisher. Using his Marine training and various military-grade armaments, the Punisher waged a one-man war on crime. He targeted everything from street thugs to super villains, though he often focused on organized crime figures.

Frank has spent years bringing down criminals, terrorists, and those who harm the innocent. His methods are brutal and decisive, making it hard for him to work with costumed heroes. In fact, many such heroes have attempted to capture or stop the vigilante. He has been presumed dead many times; however, Castle always manages to come back from certain death or capture to return to his mission.

Recently, the Punisher began working his way through various criminal syndicates around New York, killing soldiers and crime family heads alike. He will likely continue along this path unless some new injustice demands his attention
