First Line of Dialogue or Text
Years back, when I used to take the bus to a menial day job, I found a book by a guy named Friedrich Nietzsche.
Genre
superhero; crime
Characters
The Hood; The Punisher [Frank Castle]; Henry; Wolverine (cameo); Microchip (cameo)
Synopsis
The Hood discovers a little about the Punisher's operations and the fact that he has a tech man helping him out thanks in part to the fact that he has a familiar tech man of his own. The Punisher busts up an organ harvesting operation run by the Hand but a SWAT team moves in on him quickly. As Henry directs Frank into the sewers to escape, he discovers that the SWAT team is actually made up of the Hood's goons.
