Synopsis for "Desperate Measures"Edit

Punisher has been shot and beaten very badly. He's laying on a bed with a lot of blood all over him and broken bones. A woman tells Punisher a young guy she knows who is being tortured so he'll say where Punisher is. The gangsters are ripping out his face rings. You might remember this scene from the "Punisher" movie where john travolta is a gangster. Anyhow, Punisher manages to get there. When one of them answers the door, Punisher jams a knife in his guts. He then shoots the other one. A doctor comes in and works on the young guy and Punisher after drinking whiskey. Punisher refuses anasthetic and bites down on a bullet instead. In Kazakhistan, a group on supposed special forces soldiers go down to a small house "the Russian" is in but he wastes them all. The Russian then gets a call from a woman with a grudge against Punisher. [he fed her to polar bears and now she has no limbs]. He accepts.
