Marvel Universe Vs. The Punisher #4 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

After a brief brawl, Punisher (Frank Castle) is captured by the Kingpin’s gang and tied to an upended table. Kingpin tortures Punisher to tell him where Spider-Man’s tribe is now hiding; Castle refuses as this would endanger the survivors Spidey knows about. The priest and the little boy, armed with weapons from Punisher’s arsenal arrive to try to save him; they are easily captured, disarmed, and thrown in with the other survivors. In a cage, Deadpool, revived yet again, kills his guard (the Red Skull) and escapes. Kingpin tries to get Castle to talk by threatening to harm Mary Jane Watson and the baby; she seizes a knife and threatens to kill herself first. Kingpin calls her bluff but Deadpool arrives and drops the bag full of weapons confiscated from the priest in the courtyard; Mary Jane cuts Castle’s bonds and the Punisher goes into action. He slaughters Kingpin’s gang and kills Kingpin last….

Punisher returns Mary Jane to Spider-Man and meets the survivors—and then he shoots Spidey in the head, never having promised to let him live. The priest and Mary Jane organize the survivors and they sail rafts across the river. The Punisher returns to his work in Manhattan—a place for killers and monsters—like him….
