Taking the law into his own hands, and sticking to his code no matter the odds.


Infamous globally. Whether you see him as a dangerous murdering lunatic or a man on a mission willing to see the job done by any means necessary, The Punisher is respected, feared, or hated wherever he goes.


Frank Castle (originally Castiglione) was a horrible kid. An only child of too-old parents, he ran wild and rough in Hell's Kitchen. He was, however, an exceptional Marine. Force Recon, cross-training with other elite units, serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan, earning the Navy Cross, Purple Heart, and other awards. On one of his leaves, he met a woman named Maria, started dating her, and got her pregnant. He proved to be a slightly-less-exceptional father and husband, but not a bad one, when he was around. He ended up with two children, a boy and a girl. Frank was assigned to Cerberus Squad, working with an anonymous CIA Agent they called Agent Orange.

Cerberus Squad killed, tortured, destroyed, and maimed their way across Afghanistan, putting fear into the hearts of their enemies, work that was hard on even a tough soul like Frank's. A mission went wrong, leading to the death of many of Cerberus Squad, and to Frank clearing a path to extraction for them. He nearly killed Agent Orange when the spook asked about the mission's target rather than the wounded men. He had to be pulled off Orange by his friend Billy Russo, who confided that he was leaving the Corps and striking out on his own. Frank decided he couldn't abandon the Corps like that, and signed up for one more tour, although he left Cerberus Squad.

Toward the end of his last tour, Frank was on leave with his wife and children when they were caught in a gunfight. Frank took a bullet to the head, but survived. His family did not. They were gunned down before his eyes before he faded into unconsciousness. He almost didn't wake up, as a fake Do Not Resuscitate note was put in his file to try to ensure he wouldn't wake up from the attack. Despite this, he recovered and left the hospital almost immediately.

Ever since then, he's waged a blood war on the underworld. Briefly arrested and convicted, he escaped from prison soon after.

At first, it was a one man war… but over time he's gathered a small network of allies, both major and minor, to support him.

Love him or hate him, The Punisher is a force to be reckoned with.
