The issue begins in Brooklyn, New York. Silver is on a mission alone, in an attempt to re-focus after learning that her father is still alive. Her target is a smuggler named Leviathan, whom she believes to have information about her father and the Genesis Coalition. She tracks him to a drug exchange at the harbor. Also tracking Leviathan is the Punisher. Once the Punisher arrives on the scene, Silver must act to prevent him from killing Leviathan. A chai disrupts the Punisher's shot and allows Leviathan to escape. After the melee, Silver and the Punisher get into a little scuffle since they both ruin each others operations. It ends in a good ol' Mexican Standoff with Silver and the Punisher pointing guns at each other. Silver is able to diffuse the situation and strike a temporary truce between the two, and they agree to go after Leviathan together. Meanwhile, The Wild Pack's Delta Team is pulled off a mission involving murdered ambassadors. This is the first and only indication that this is more Wild Pack members than the crew that usually accompany Silver. As they Delta Team storms off to see Lorna, they walk in on Lorna and Crippler, caught in a delicate and compromising position. Meanwhile, in a small soliloquy, Quentino reveals that he has tested positive for HIV, and that he is still tempted to use heroin, like he did as a gang members in Los Angeles. Back to Silver, she and the Punisher are now tracking Leviathan and catch him at his boat of the Atlantic Coast. While the Punisher deals with Leviathan's men, Silver nabs Leviathan and pumps him for info. He slowly reveals that Ivan Trefkov, the man alledgedly responsible for killing her father formed the Genesis Coalition using older factions of Hydra. Before Leviathan can say any more, the Punisher arrives and during another scuffle with Silver, Leviathan escapes. The issue closes with the two dissolving the truce and putting each other on their respective bad sides. Comic Book Library
