Synopsis for "Punisher & Son"

While NYCPD investigate The Punisher's actions on Dutch Shultz' men, Frank watches from a distance, remembering the days of his father's stories and target practice in the family firing range. One particular story about the Russian who ended up with a grenade in his pants tends to come up more than others.

Frustrated by the loss of good men, Dutch hires three 'heavy hitters' from across the country to take out Castelione. Barracuda, main muscle for Bumby Johnson in Harlem, Jigsaw, Capone's go-to assassin, and a mystery woman are all suprised to be sent together to take out one man.

On the day of his father's death, Frank Jr. had finally decided that he didn't want to participate in a life of organized crime. Too bad he was never going to be able to tell his dad.

Solicit Synopsis

Frank Castle has come face to face with the evil that men do, in the trench warfare of the muddy battlefields of World War I. He’s come home only to see his city carved up amongst the mob families, as the power of organized crime syndicates rise up to challenge that of the government. In reaction to the Punisher’s War on Crime, two hitmen are dispatched to deal with him permanently: a killer whose face is a roadmap of hell, and the biggest, meanest mountain of muscle ever to come from the streets of Harlem. With Jigsaw and Barracuda on the scene, “paint the town red” will take on a whole new meaning.
