The Punisher: Born by Dan Ashley

The Present:

Agent G W. Bridge uses Bushwhacker in a staged Times Square showdown to lure S.H.I.E.L.D’s most wanted man, the Punisher, out into the open. But it goes horribly wrong resulting in his escape into the fleeing crowd, only moments later New York is bombarded with a news flash that Captain America has been assassinated at his own trial. How times have changed...

The Past:

Frank Castle is an exceptional Special Forces soldier, trained by the US Marines, Navy SEALs, Elite Snipers, Martial Arts Masters and survivalists. He is the best a soldier can be and a young family man touring Vietnam. Then an ambush leads to the infamous Valley Forge massacre, resulting in him being the only survivor. Indescribably, the war changes him.

Returning home to find that no matter how hard he tries he can't get the war out of his mind or his heart, he secretly applies to return to the Special Forces without his wife and children's knowledge or consent. But one day in Central Park, New York, as their children fly a kite across a secluded field, as he is about to reveal all to his wife, a mafia assassination spills over into their quaint reality from the criminal underworld, resulting in the murder of Castle's family.

Overcome with grief and maddening anger, yet helpless to witness the law's inadequacy in bringing the guilty Costa Family to justice, Castle chooses to utilise his unlimited knowledge of combat to cleanse New York of its deadly criminal element.

Castle learns the hard way how to survive in a world going mad through his rivalries and alliances with the likes of Spiderman, Daredevil and Wolverine and it is he who often puts an end to many a superhero’s infallible enemy. Throughout the decades, the Punisher goes to war against the wicked and the tyrannical and their armies the world over. This however results only in Castle becoming so far removed from humanity that even his enemies begin to question which of them are the greater evil!

The Present:

The streets of New York are now more dangerous than ever and as the world hangs tentatively in the balance between warring superheroes and villains, Frank Castle AKA the Punisher still has plenty old hatchets to bury and many fresh skulls to bury them in. The rules have changed since the old days. So has the nature of heroes and villains and how they play their game.

With S.H.I.E.L.D on his case, an open contract on his head bringing more killers his way and a darker breed of criminal flooding the streets in the form of Russian mercenaries and Japanese Yakuza, Castle is one man alone fighting a war of attrition and continues to do what no superhero is doing; protecting the innocent from the scum that the law cannot stop.

But there are still costs for a man with seemingly nothing to lose. A man such as Frank Castle!
