An old acquaintance – with in-depth knowledge of Frank Castle's modus operandi – is after the Punisher. And what he has in store for Frank cuts far deeper than mere revenge.
Micro is working with the C.I.A.. Together they've pulled the Punisher off the streets and are holding in a hotel room. Micro has taken on the task of convincing the Punisher to give up his crusade.
When they grabbed the Punisher, it wasn't completely clean. An old man saw it happen and now he's talking to the media. An operative is sent back to convince the old man to zip his lips. However, they weren't the only interested part to see the broadcast. The Mafia group that the Punisher had been targeting had seen it also. And they had the same idea as the C.I.A., that the old man could be their key to finding the Punisher.
