Frank Castle and Jerry[src]

Jerry was a veteran of Vietnam, serving in the Third Marine division.[1] He was also a prisoner of war in Laos.[2]

Trouble in New York

Meeting Frank Castle

One night, Jerry heard noises on the roof of his apartment building, and went to investigate, expecting to find kids partying. Instead, he found a man who called himself Frank, a veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Frank said he was simply up on the roof to smoke. Jerry sympathized, since his own wife had made him quit smoking. He assumed the man was the brother of his neighbor, and told him he could stay and smoke as long as he liked.

Later, Jerry emerged from his apartment when he heard fighting outside. He was confronted by bikers from the Dogs of Hell fighting against Daredevil. Daredevil held a gun to the bikers which he had taken from Jimmy the Bear, ordering them to drop their weapons, and telling Jerry to go back inside his apartment and lock the door. Jerry was concerned about Daredevil, but Daredevil assured him that he was good.[1]

Murdered by the Hand

Jerry was on a list of people whom Daredevil had either saved or put away, compiled by the New York City Police Department. When this list fell into the hands of the Hand, Jerry was abducted along with nineteen other people on the list. He was transported on a school bus along with the other hostages. When Tyler struck Karen Page on the face, Jerry furiously came to her defense. In retribution, Tyler shot and killed him.[2]



  • Wife




  • In New York's Finest, Jerry and Frank Castle have a chat about their military carriers. While Castle served in Iraq and Afghanistan, Jerry talks about his military service in the Vietnam War. This is a reference to the original Punisher from the comics, who served in Vietnam as well before his backstory was updated in recent times.
