Thanos looked down on Frank as they stood alone on the surface of the moon. Castle gasped for air and clutched his throat. "For a man of your nature, I expected less theatrics." Thanos taunted.
He extended his hand to help the Punisher get up. Castle stopped his attempts as he realized he could breathe just fine. Taking the Mad Titan's hand, he pulled himself up.
"You know why I have isolated you." The behemoth stated. Frank was silent as he glared at his foe. "To do glorious battle of course. I have been bested before, by many heroes.
I enjoy the challenge of a newcomer."
"But now that I am endowed with new power by Arcade, I believe the only worthy opponent is you, Frank Castle." Thanos said with a grin. "And just why is that?" The punisher asked warily.
The Titan laughed. "Because... You don't know the meaning of giving up!" He said as he smashed a fist into the ground, causing a giant crack to form in the moon.
Frank stumbled. "This is hardly a fair fight." "Very well," Thanos stated. "I shall grant you an item to fight me with in addition to your current arsenal. Name it." Frank thought carefully.
"I want Tony Starks suit."
Thanos laughed a mighty laugh. "So it shall be! And what do you intend to title yourself before you face against me?"
As a Black and White Iron Suit appeared before him, Franks symbiote wrapped around it. He stepped into the suit, rotating his arms to check out the features.
"Well, Punisher? What say you?" Frank smiled inside the suit. "No Punisher. Now, you face Repentance." He said as he powered up his new armor.
Thanos equipped the Infinity Gauntlet as Repentance held Mjolnir in hand. "Truly a contest of Champions!!!" Thanos boomed. "Let us begin!"
