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) - When Bastelli saw the Punisher come into the diner, he grew nervous, but allowed him to stay. When Bastelli saw some enforcers coming in, he called Mary away from the Punisher's table, 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.

(Daredevil vs. Punisher#2) - The Bastellis sat around with Aunt Frida laughing over pictures.

(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. 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.
