With her dual life as the Punisher exposed, Lynn has to contend with agents of both the Terminal and VIGIL in order to reach the coveted Punisher War Journal first. All parties follow the trail to Heathen who doles out War Journals like playing cards. Everyone thinks they have the real journal little knowing that they are forgeries and that Heathen has kept the real deal for himself. Finding the Punisher role a little too much to take, Lynn turns to Payback for help.
