Characters Appearing: Punisher
Issue(s): Punisher #52
The best sequence is this one. Here's the killer/kidnapper, Lupe, chasing a young mother. Notice the guy sitting on the stoop.
That guy goes and gets a gun, and tries to stop Lupe. He gets shot in return, and Lupe gets away.
But the great part is when the Punisher shows up later and give him a thousand bucks and thinks to himself how the guy restores his faith in humanity.
Anyway, Punisher tracks down Lupe, gets into a fistfight with her, and eventually lets her drop off a building. He restores the two children that Lupe kidnaps in this issue to their surviving biological parents, which in one case means a guy that is working his way off crack. He gets $1,000 too.
The mother of the other baby that was kidnapped gets $15,000. I don't know exactly how the Punisher Reward Program works. Seems kind of arbitrary to me. Where do i register a complaint?

During their fight, Lupe tells Punisher that she "used to wrestle in Guadalajara." This made me wish that she would whip out a luchadore mask at some point, but no such luck. The Punisher's rogues gallery could only benefit from a recurring rudo!

Frank's neighbors would eventually get their portion of the reward program in the Garth Ennis run. Seems like Frank likes to spend all his money in a day.

I'd probably take the baby-selling element a bit more seriously if a similar thing hadn't happened in John Waters' "Pink Flamingos".
