History:

(Punisher vs. Bullseye#1 (fb)) - Alphonso "Fonzie" Patrillo was a young mobster who was full of himself and not scared of anything. When his brother Rocco came over from Italy, they went to the disco to celebrate, Fonzie in his new shark-skin suit. Fonzie had a few drinks and did some disco dancing, but he ripped his pants on accident. He went to find a different pair just as Rocco arrived, and he instructed Rocco to be sent upstairs for his entertainment. Fonzie held the girl in the coatroom, Jane, at gunpoint when she jokingly pulled out a stained green dress for him to wear. However, when the club was attacked by the Punisher (Frank Castle), Fonzie put on the dress so he could escape. Punisher shot down many of the Patrillos, including Sonny, an older man.

(Punisher vs. Bullseye#1 (fb) - BTS) - Nico Patrillo, son of Tomasino "Tommy" Patrillo, acted as head of the Patrillo crime family, though he followed the orders of his uncle Fonzie, who was in hiding and dressed in drag in Westport, Connecticut. When Fonzie found out the Punisher was after them and had killed many, including Richie, he summoned Nico. Nico took the tunnel from Stanley Oaks, where his grandmother Rosala Patrillo lived, and took a tunnel to Fonzie's place.

(Punisher vs. Bullseye#1) - Fonzie told Nico about the Punisher's vendetta against the Patrillos and ordered Nico to put out a hit on the Punisher. Nico doubted this, so Fonzie slapped him and explained that they would put out a half million dollar offer and that this would get them respect and/or get the Punisher killed. After checking for news on the rival family, the Rossis, Fonzie ordered Nico to have their lawyer, Katzenbaum, spread the word. After Nico climbed back through the tunnel, wondering about his uncle's sexuality, he greeted his grandmother, who briefly mistook him for Fonzie. She ranted about her dead children and her missing candy, calling Nico dumb as he left. Nico then contacted Nick Katzenbaum, who put the hit out.

(Punisher vs. Bullseye#2) - Bullseye snuck into the home of Nico Patrillo, finding a guard sleeping on the couch and a gun and money hidden in the toilet before he interrupted Nico's singing in the shower. He lead Nico out into the living room where he slapped the guard, Bobby, awake. He let them know he was there for the Punisher hit and that he'd need 250,000 now and the rest later, and revealed that Katzenbaum was dead. Bullseye said he would contact them later and reminded them that they needed to follow his every order to stay alive. Bullseye reminded him that Punisher must have a plant in the Patrillo family and that they needed to suspend all operations until further notice. Bullseye gave Nico a phone, then left through the bathroom. Nico started yelling about Bullseye, who came back in to remind him he was there and was taking the ten thousand from the toilet with him. Later that night, he met Nico, Bobby, and others at the Java Junction.

(Punisher vs. Bullseye#3) - As Bullseye reminded them of the orders, they noticed Punisher just outside the window, not attacking because he knew that Bullseye would harm civilians willingly. As the waitress Debbie came by, Bullseye opened fire on the patrons so Punisher attacked. Punisher killed Bobby, despite the man's begging, while Bullseye rushed out with Nico and commandeered a bus, killing the driver. He left Nico behind and demanded that he get out of the city, asking where Tony DiFazzio's crew was for backup, not knowing Punisher had killed them.

(Punisher vs. Bullseye#4) - Nico dressed in drag and hid out with Uncle Fonzie, where they got frequent reports that many of their family members had been killed.

(Punisher vs. Bullseye#5) - Fonzie tried to teach Nico how to paint his nails, growing frustrated. They got a call from Bullseye, who told them that the Rossi family had called a meeting to discuss takeover of the Patrillo family holdings. He claimed he would have the Punisher killed by that night and demanded his money be ready, telling Nico he knew where he was due to a GPS tracking device in the phone. Bullseye then went to get the money from the Patrillos, where Nico inadvertently revealed that Fonzie was the woman in drag there. He gave them Punisher's bloody shirt as proof of his death, then he ducked into the tunnel under the house as Punisher blew up the house, killing the last of the Patrillos. Bullseye exited through the room of Rosala Patrillo.
