Written by Fred Van Lente and with art by Salvador Larroca and Frank D'Armata, Eminen/Punisher sees Barracuda return for vengeance against Frank Castle after they last tangled. Punisher opening fire on Eminem's bodyguards after a concert, it seems to the rapper that Barracuda has come to his rescue but after Eminem gets the drop on Frank, after being followed to a derelict house, Barracuda double crosses him.
They both come to on a boat out in the middle of nowhere where Barracuda stands singing at the wheel. Here it becomes evident that the Punisher was opening fire on Barracuda all along. The big friendly psychopath then tells them that he aims to cut them up with a chainsaw and throw them overboard into shark infested waters, so Eminem takes the opportunity to help the Punisher get them both out of the situation.
