Intro:

Still on his quest to right the wrongs from Secret Empire, the Punisher has found Steve Rogers, the fallen hero that turned into a Hydra Commander. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been able to kill him because he has been stopped all along the way. Now he has bumped into Iron Man, who wants the War Machine armor back with or without his permission…

Recap:

Punisher gets into a fight with Tony, who confronted him at the end of our last issue. After a brief scuffle, Tony has to attend to other matters and leaves. At this point, Frank continues his assault against Zemo, Ghost, and the newly-freed Hydra boss Steve Rogers, who was sprung from jail in the last issue. He gives chase and takes them down only to be stopped by Stark before he could mortally wound anyone. After dealing with Stark again, he is stopped by someone else before he can finish the Hydra leadership. This cameo turns the issue on its head and even gives Frank pause long enough for him to be formally arrested and taken away. As he is taken away, the truck carrying him is stopped by Black Widow and Bucky, who Frank was working alongside earlier.

Opinion:

This was another explosive issue. I was upset that Stark got involved at the end of the last issue, though it makes sense. I’m actually surprised it took him this long to even catch up to Frank, but I digress. Great action-packed issue, but this one was made—for sure—by the cameo toward the end. I didn’t expect it at all and it certainly changed the direction of this entire book. Next issue will be #1 so expect the Punisher to go back to his old ways.

Summary
So here we are, this arc has been excellent and we’ll be heading to the next story in Franks war on crime. The major cameo in this issue was great as well as unexpected but the ending let me down a bit. I understand why it had to happen to set things up for future stories but I wasn’t a fan anyway. Otherwise though this was highly enjoyable and I'm hoping Frank has more run ins with this specific antagonist. I was pulling for him as I was underwhelmed with what they did with his character in Secret Empire. Hopefully by the end of this he is fully redeemed.
Good
