 "WELCOME TO CHICAGO, FRANK CASTLE..." Part Two of Five
 A Subway Car racing out of control in the underbelly of Chicago – and one of its occupants is Frank Castle! But why is the Punisher on board the car – and even if he does manage to prevent the crash, he’ll have to deal with a list of enemies so numerous that would cause most street level vigilantes to call for backup.
 But not The Punisher. No, Frank Castle is going to take down The Howling Commandos, the mysterious DIVISION H, and Jigsaw – who is still reeling after their last encounter, all by himself.
 But first, he’s going to get out of the out of control subway car. Good luck, Frank. You’re going to need it.

Little did we know at the time that the adamantium we acquired or mutants we tagged and bagged would be used to make weapons… X weapons… for Weapon X!
