History:

(Daredevil vs. Punisher#1 (fb) - BTS) - Mr. Bastelli ran his diner with his wife and children in New York. Local gangs started demanding protection fees, willing to beat the Bastellis up if they didn't pay. When men from Hector Nino's gang got fresh with Mary, Mr. Bastelli and Martin tried to stop them, but they were both beat up in return.

(Daredevil vs. Punisher#1) - Mary waited on the Punisher when he came in, ignoring her when he called her Maria. When her father saw some enforcers coming in, he called her away from there, but she bent to clean the table, hiding the Punisher instead and ignoring his gun. The enforcers left and the Punisher showed himself out the back. Bastelli refused to tell Punisher how they'd been injured. Martin soon rushed off for a bit, claiming he had stomach problems.

(Daredevil vs. Punisher#2) - The Bastellis sat around with Aunt Frida laughing over pictures. Mary was getting ready to go out with Gina when Martin privately showed her a gun he'd bought from a friend of Tommy's. He confessed that the Punisher had killed Hector and his men, causing Mary to worry about Martin being in danger. He agreed to get rid of the gun, feeling ashamed.

(Daredevil vs. Punisher#3) - Mary heard about Martin getting embarrassed at a party. She convinced him to go clubbing with her, sneaking him in and making him promise not to get in trouble. When he rushed out in a panic, Mary followed him and was shocked to see he still had his gun. When a man got abusive with his girlfriend, Mary rushed for help, but Martin fired his gun to scare the guy off, scaring other patrons of the club.

(Daredevil vs. Punisher#4) - Mary and her father joked about how happy Martin was now that he had a girlfriend. When two new men, including Sid, came in and started roughing up Mr. Bastelli for money, Martin drew his gun and killed them both. Panicking, they sent Martin to stay with Aunt Frida in Pennsylvania and Mr. Bastelli refused police help from Sam. That night, they were visited by gang members.

(Daredevil vs. Punisher#5 (fb) - BTS) - The gang members beat all of the Bastellis, killing Mr. Bastelli, badly wounding Mrs. Bastelli, and raping Mary.  

(Daredevil vs. Punisher#5) - When the police arrived, including Sam and Joe, Mary and her mom were rushed to the hospital.

(Daredevil vs. Punisher#6) - Martin was killed in a gunfight. When Mary came to, she wrote the Punisher a letter and told him that she didn't blame him. She also told him  her mother had recovered and that they were thinking of moving out of the city.
