Synopsis for ""The Ghost of Wall Street""

White collar criminals, beware! The Punisher's on Wall Street, and he's armed to the teeth! On March 28th, Frank is reading an article on the Wall Street Journal about billionaire Arnold Ansen and his friend and fellow billionaire Roky Vance, who benefited at the expense of robbing thousands of investors. Additionally, there was also an article regarding the Skid-Row Slasher, who had just claimed another victim. Frank decides to go to Wall Street to pay the two billionaires a visit. On Wall Street, Quentin O'Toole is panhandling when "Mr. McRook" stops by and goes to eat breakfast with him at a diner. As they eat breakfast, O'Toole informs "McRook" of Vance's activities in the stock market and that he was already present in the office. Next, O'Toole gets up and begings to leave as O'Toole requests a gun from him.

Next, "McRook", who is in fact Frank in disguise, met up with Microchip Jr. and had him dive him, tailing a limousine that Ansen and Vance rode to Warrick County, Connecticut, where they were to meet their Japanese business partners. Eventually, the Punisher and Microchip Jr. tail Vance and Ansen to a building owned by MicroCorp., a subsidiary of Praxdorf, where Vance and Ansen worked. Next, Frank holds his position at a hill overlooking the building and observes the men present with an infrared scope, spotting Mr. Hansen and Mr. Takegura. Suddenly, a large guard appears and attempts to confront Frank, triggering a fight between the two. Suddenly, Microchip Jr. intervenes and is knocked unconscious with a taser by the guard as a result. However, this gives Frank the opportunity to knock the guard unconscious. Next, Frank carries Microchip Jr.'s body back to their van and drives back to Microchip to treat Junior. As they attempt to treat Junior, Microchip informs Frank that O'Toole wants to meet up with him the next day.

The next day, Frank, as Mr. McRook, meets up with O'Toole, who informs him that he was at a seminar in 1972, where Takegura gave a speech about a plan to take over the American electronics industry and about how one of his bodyguards broke the leg of a female student nearby. After their conversation, "McRook" gives O'Toole $2,000 and a .45 revolver. Meanwhile, Roky Vance is meeting with Takegura and Hansen in the Praxdorf Building, before he takes off with his bodyguard Sijo. Later, at midnight, in the Bowery, three men offer a passing by old man some wine. When he accepts, the three men push the man down and draw out blades. The old man is actually Frank, who beats up the three men and askes them if they are the Skid-Row Slasher, who he has been looking for some time. However, none of them are the Skid-Row Slasher.

Meanwhile, O'Toole is sitting down on the sidewalk when he hears footsteps. As the footsteps get closer, he sees Roky Vance (Earth-616) appear with a knife in his hand. In response, O'Toole draws his .45 revolver and points it at Vance. However, before O'Toole can shoot Vance, Sijo comes out from behind the former from an alley, disarms him, and knocks him to the ground. Next, Vance grabs O'Toole and prepares to kill him with his knife as Sijo takes a photograph.
