Synopsis for "Hit-Monkey"

After an unnamed political assassin was sentenced to death, he escaped into the mountains only to be found by a group of monkeys that had helped heal him by dragging him to the local hot springs. As he was focusing his practice on the old ways of killing without a gun, the one monkey who had not initially trusted him learned from watching him and soon became just as skilled as the assassin himself. The monkey became violent toward his own and was banished until he witnessed another evil group of assassins gun down man he had learned from and the village of his fellow monkeys. From that point on, he swore he would avenge their deaths. From that point on, the legend of the Hit-Monkey was born.

When I first read this comic I liked it very much but as time passed by the story got a bit boring since it is just a one hit. It is said that Marvel were discussing this and they are giving hit monkey a second appearance in a story of The Punisher.
