The Punisher was one of the few superheroes who opposed the Registration Acts during the Civil War. After being arrested, the Punisher was forced to undertake suicide missions as a member of the Thunderbolts in order to buy time off his prison sentence.[1]

Contest of Champions

When President Stark, a.k.a. Iron Patriot, and his Mighty Avengers were kidnapped by Maestro (a Hulk from an alternate dimension), the Thunderbolts were sent by Reed Richards to Battlerealm, a broken section of space-time at the edge of everything to where the teleport trail left behind by Maestro led to.[1]

While his teammates fought the Mighty Avengers (whose memories had been altered by Maestro) and the unwilling contestants of Maestro's Contest of Champions, the Punisher chat with the Outlaw and learned he had given up on violence as well as vigilantism. Following the death of Steve Rogers at the hands of Iron Patriot and the shocking revelation that Stark had been using the Reality Stone to subtly manipulate reality in his favor back in their home reality, Maestro killed Stark and challenged the remaining contestants, as well as his own allies, to defeat him. Among Maestro's allies was Jake Gallows, the Punisher of 2099 A.D., who the Punisher unceremoniously killed before his head was blasted off by the Maestro.[2]
