- They laugh at the law. The rich ones who buy it and twist it to their whims. The other ones, who have nothing to lose, who don't care about themselves, or other people. All the ones who think they're above the law, or outside it, or beyond it. They know all the law is good for is to keep good people in line. And they all laugh. They laugh at the law. But they don't laugh at me.

Francis "Frank" Castle is a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who fought during the War on Terror following the 9/11 attacks, leaving behind his family at his home city of New York. Following his return after the American counterattack was declared over, Frank just wanted to pass his spare time with his family. Going to Central Park, they were eventually gunned down by a drug deal gone wrong; all died, aside from Frank. Lusting for revenge, and for revelations, Castle donned his old bulletproof combat vest and use of his lethality to strike a bloody one-man war against the criminal world as the Punisher.
