(Deadpool Team-Up II#894 (fb)) - With the Punisher's gun-firing slaughter of the Corvelli mob almost complete, Despina Hawthorne convinced her husband Michael, also her captain, to go outside and distract the vigilante so that she could escape.

(Deadpool Team-Up II#894) - Deadpool took on her tear-filled request to avenge her husband's death and kill the Punisher, lying that he had been a data entry worker killed in collateral damage from a Punisher raid. After much fighting between Deadpool and the cyborg-enhanced Punisher, Xemnu the Titan revealed a telepathic visual replay to them that she had fooled Deadpool about what had really happened. Deadpool and the Punisher returned to confront Despina at her mansion, only to find that Wolverine had likewise been duped and taken on the mission to "protect" her.
