8 Greatest Punisher Crossover Stories

8. Magic Bullets (2017)

Marvel Comics

There must be some nefarious activity afoot, if Dr. Steven Strange and Frank Castle are on the case!

In the 2016 story Magic Bullets, The Punisher and the Sorcerer Supreme join forces to stop a mystic threat from tearing New York City apart. Both men couldn’t be more different from one another but must put their differences aside for the greater good.

It starts with the Fusilli siblings, harvesting the powers of demons, hoping to become the most powerful crime family in the universe. They transform into grotesque fire-breathing monsters, whose minds have been warped into darkness. Together with the help of an evil sorcerer, they manage to open a gateway to more supernatural terrors.

Being ignorant to all things mystical, The Punisher seeks Dr. Strange’s help on the matter. The pairing of Strange and Castle is awkward at first, with Frank doing his best to stay away from all things magic, and Strange not yet comfortable with Punisher’s way of handling business.

Luckily, the two see the merit of each other’s techniques, and become quite the team. They send the demons back where they came from, and learn to respect each other along the way.
