Powers/Abilities: The Board is highly talented with computer programming, hacking, etc. "If it's computers, I can do it."
    Microchip described him as a Free Thinker, meaning he is a creative genius who uses computers to build up data, then draw seemingly random but incredibly accurate conclusions.

History:
(Punisher II#16 (fb) - BTS) - Having mastered computer programming, the Board was headed for a life of crime.

(Punisher II#14, 15 - BTS) - The Board was affiliated with a gang of terrorists operating out of Malcolm Shabazz High School.

(Punisher II#16) - After Microchip used a computer virus to sabotage the Kingpin's computer systems and destroy his records, the Kingpin hired the 14 year old Board to fix things. The Board was able to track down and remove the virus, as well as to prevent such future incursions, though he still predicted a 30% memory loss. The Board also identified Microchip as the guilty hacker, and gave a 74% probability that Microchip and the Punisher would next target the Kingpin's collection house in Naragansett. However, he also recommended that the Kingpin get a large vehicle to go to Atlantic City in case the Punisher second-guessed them. The Board accompanied the Kingpin aboard a large truck, which ambushed the Punisher and his allies in his Battle Van.

 

 

(Punisher II#17) - As the Kingpin's men assaulted the Punisher's van, the Board detected Microchip attempting to infiltrate their truck's computer systems. The Board then backtracked the Van's systems, neutralizing their computerized braking system, but Microchip managed to screw up the Kingpin's vehicle's computer-enhanced steering and shocks. The Board restored the Kingpin's systems, and the Punisher was forced to drive his van off a dock to escape. The Board predicted that they had died, but the Kingpin was skeptical.
    Later, the Board mouthed off when the Kingpin told him to show George Wong into the counting room, and, with the Kingpin's blessing, George duely chastised the Board via a punch and a drop-kick. Whimpering, the Board showed George to the counting room.

(Punisher II#18) - Upset over his recent treatment, the Board set up a meeting with Microchip. The Board told him the Kingpin's location and offered to sell him his security codes for a million dollars, but before he could do anything further, he was ambushed by George Wong, who killed him with a knife.
