In the story


I know what you're thinking. How did I end up like this? Tied to a chair in a dingy warehouse, with a big, scary man pointing a big, scary gun in my face. Well let me tell you: you're here because you're a criminal. You're a tumor of society. And me? I'm just a man who loves his job. I'm the Punisher. And we're about to have a lot of fun together...

  • Fight start: The flak jacket made by Microchip grants the Punisher 4 stacks of Resist Physical, each providing X physical resistance. A stack is lost when struck 8 times.
