Frank Carple was a U.S. marine who spent three tours of duty in Viet Ham where he learned to use anything as a weapon. After the war, he settled in New York City and married his wife, Sealia. After Sealia refused to buy Girl Scout cookies from a gangster's daughter, the mob came back and stuffed her full of hundreds of oatmeal cream pies. Frank Carple swore vengeance as the Punfisher.

In one of his early outings, the Punfisher teamed up with Spider-Ham to defeat Doctor Octopussycat's scheme of monopolizing all of New York City's plumbing services. After Doctor Octopussycat was captured, the Punfisher opened fire on a jaywalker.

When Spider-Ham gained the powers of Capitan Zooniverse, Punfisher was one of the many villains who was defeated by him and sent into orbit.[1]

He was among Spider-Ham's rogues that were transported to the Prime Marvel Universe by Ringmaster, used as his puppet on Earth-28204, and then scattered across the Multiverse for individual capture by Spider-Guin.[2]
