Five years into waging his one-man war on the world of organized crime, ruthless vigilante-hero Frank Castle set his sights on overeager mob boss Billy Russoti. After slaughtering most of the mob bosses in New York, Frank chased Russoti to a recycling plant. There, he threw him into a glass crushing machine.
Billy was left for dead by Castle, horribly disfigured. Under his new alias, Jigsaw, he set out for vengeance. With the "Punisher Task Force" hot on his trail and the FBI unable to take Jigsaw in, Frank must stand up to the formidable army that Jigsaw had recruited before more of his evil deeds go unpunished. Frank defeated Jigsaw's army and eventually Jigsaw himself.
