Synopsis for the 1st StoryEdit

Vulture grabs Punisher with his talons and flies into the air with him.

Meanwhile, Rachel Cole has woken up and is told by her doctor that she will have to go through rehab. Rachel insists to her doctor that her name is Alves because she took her husband's name.

In the air, the Punisher is able to break one of the Vulture's legs and pulls out a knife, stabbing him in the ankle and grabbing him by the neck. Just below them, Clemons and Bolt enter the warehouse and find only Liam's headless body. Bolt thinks it was the Punisher. However, Clemons doesn't think so and notices the Punisher's rifle lying in a pile of shattered glass, leading him to believe that the Punisher and someone else was there. As they fly through New York City, Vulture continues to cut Punisher with his talons while he stabs him repeatedly, lowering their altitude.

Norah is taking Clemons' advice and asks her stylist at a hair salon to cut her hair short. Halfway through, Norah gets a notification on her iPhone from someone on Twitter, who posted a picture of the Punisher's midair battle. She leaves the salon with one side of her hair cut short and searches the sky until she finds them.

Shortly after being stabbed through the eye, the Punisher drives his knife through Vulture's chest, followed by his head, killing him and releasing him from his grip. As he falls, Clemons and Bolt follow after him. He lands in an alley, still conscious. While he struggles to get up, in the hospital, Rachel gets out of bed. Norah finds him in the alley, surprised that he is still alive. Just as Rachel falls to the ground and is helped up by the doctor, Punisher asks Norah for help.
