From that moment forward Castle became the Punisher, a vigilante dedicated to stopping crime at any cost and by any means necessary.

The innocents are watching, just like always. The slack-jawed thousands, gazing at the beast. My family lie red and shredded in the grass. I face the crowd and bring the weapon to my shoulder.
