Synopsis for "Let the Punisher fit the Crime"Edit

The Punisher has both Spider-Man and Nightcrawler in his sights, believing one of them is responsible for framing him for a bunch of sniper murders in the city. When the two heroes battle the Punisher, all learn that the killer is someone else entirely when they're attacked by the real sniper. Nightcrawler teleports away, and the Punisher and Spider-Man agree to work together to find out who the killer is.

The next day, Peter is at ESU with Harry when he sees Mary Jane out with Flash Thompson. She is purposely making time with Flash because Peter keeps on running out on their dates. J. Jonah Jameson also makes a trip to ESU, there he meets with Dr. Marla Madison, he offers her an opportunity to put her scientific know-how to trying to destroy Spider-Man.

The night, Spider-Man meets up with the Punisher and the two track down the mystery sniper framing the Punisher to a block party in an affluent neighborhood. There they learn that the shooter is a man named Jigsaw, who was horribly scarred by the Punisher in the past and was framing him in order to get revenge. Spider-Man and the Punisher tangle with Jigsaw's men, and get an assist from Nightcrawler, who had also tracked down Jigsaw's location.

Making short work of Jigsaw's men, the three heroes manage to stop Jigsaw and incapacitate him. With Jigsaw defeated, Nightcrawler and Punisher suddenly depart, and upon consideration Spider-Man decides to put in a vanishing act himself leaving Jigsaw to the authorities. .

  • No special notes.

Before joining the fight with the Punisher and Nightcrawler against Jigsaw and his men, Spider-Man proclaims, "This looks like a job for...SPIDER-MAN!" (and then remarks to himself that "that's not a bad line!") It is, of course, a variation of the iconic line of a character from Marvel's *ahem* Distinguished Competition.
