Synopsis for 1st story
Frank Castle, disguised with a zip-up hoodie, enters a restaurant with a man named Bonfrisco. The restaurant is owned by the Fusilli crime family, and Castle is there to stop them from gaining power in New York. Upon entering the restaurant, pulls out two guns and begins massacring all of the members inside the restaurant. Bonfrisco, realizing that Frank is the Punisher, hides behind a table and thinks he is going to die as bodies are thrown around the room and on top of him. To his surprise, the Punisher moves to the next room and leaves Bonfrisco alive. The Punisher, meanwhile, moves from room to room, killing everybody in the building. He eventually encounters a restaurant member standing in front of a door, warning the Punisher not to go into it. Castle kills the man but is confused as to why the man did not try to escape through the door - Castle had staked out the restaurant for weeks and was confident there were no dangerous hidden secrets inside. Frank then busts into the room and is surprised by the secret he finds.
In another part of New York, on Coney Island, Doctor Strange is using an axe to battle a demon that exists on another plane of existence. Tourists watch and cheer as Strange fights the monster, thinking that Strange is just a performer because they are not able to see the demon in the other plane. As he fights and destroys the demon, Strange laments the loss of typical magical arts ever since the Mystical Gardens were razed. He is disappointed that he now has to use weapons instead of just magic to fight threats.
Doctor Strange goes home to the Sanctum Sanctorum to rest after fighting the demon. There, his librarian Zelma informs him that there is someone at the door to see him. Doctor Strange goes to the door and finds the Punisher standing out in the rain. The Punisher tells Strange that he needs his help.
