Magic Bullets teams up Doctor Strange and the Punisher
You would be hard pressed to find 2 Marvel Comics characters that are farther apart from each other in every aspect than Doctor Strange and the Punisher. It only makes sense for them to appear together in a crossover mini-series.
Frank Castle encounters a new kind of mafia threat. These new players in the organized crime game are using magic to get the upper hand. The mystical mafia is out of the Punisher’s expertise so he enlists the help of the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange. Will the Punisher start using a little magic? Will Doctor Strange adapt Frank Castle’s kill ’em all, let God sort them out way of thinking?
This isn’t the first time Doctor Strange and the Punisher have worked together. Back in 2014 the Original Sin story-line saw Doctor Strange possess the Punisher’s body as the Marvel Universe was investigating the death of Uatu the Watcher. Magic Bullets appears to be much more of a ground level affair. The premise is the Punisher recruits Doctor Strange to help him with a mob powered by magic putting the Doctor’s Hippocratic Oath to the test.
