Time to go on a Wolf Hunt, Frank.

Question: Since when is the most trusted Ghost Recon Ally a major threat to the whole world? Answer: When he’s the leader of a group of Ex-Ghosts called The Wolves who has taken over a top secret archipelago in Ubisoft’s upcoming video game, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: BreakPoint set to be released on October 4th for PlayStation, XBox, and PC. The game is set on Aurora, a fictional series of islands located somewhere in the Pacific where Skell Technology has set up their operations and created a series of special drone robots with artificial intelligence capable of unleashing loads of fear and terrorism throughout the world if fallen into the wrong hands.

Cole D. Walker: Ghost turned Wolf.

The Wolves are lead by Cole D. Walker (played by Jon Bernthal aka The Punisher), an ally turned enemy who broke away from the Ghost Recon team to form a group of renegades of his own. He and his Wolves have taken over Aurora and is holding Skell’s scientists and researchers hostage. The Ghosts are sent to rescue the hostages and stop the Wolves from using Skell Technology for their evil purposes. But there is one problem: The Wolves, especially Walker, have the very same skills, training, and tactics the Ghosts have. They have no problems using them against the Ghosts themselves. This makes rescuing mission easier said than done.

Walker does looks familiar…

But what if The Punisher ends up appearing in this game and decides to make things easier for the Ghosts to fulfill their missions? What if Frank decides to play the Ghost Recon game at Curtis’ trailer hideaway in the junkyard, only to fall asleep after playing it for many hours and dream that he finds himself in the game, going out on a Wolf Hunt leaving a lot of bodies and destroyed robotic drones and vehicles in his wake? What if, after many days, Frank was able to reach the enemy leader and managed to kill him after a heated battle? Wounded, yet still in one piece, Frank comes over and takes off the mask. A highly shocked expression appears on Frank’s face when he saw that the main villain bears a striking resemblance to the man who killed his family on that fateful day in Central Park; he’s none other than Frank Castle, himself (or so he sees in his dream).

Now that would be a total nightmare for Frank to wake up from in his safehouse getaway.

Owosso Harpist: Sherry Konkus lives in Owosso, MI. She is the proud owner of the Camac Athena EX Concert Grand Harp named "Grover" and is also the proud author of The Punisher Harp Zone. Sherry is the one who came up with the idea of portraying The Punisher from Marvel Comics as the punishing harpist who plays the harp in memory of his family who was killed by the mob years ago.

Why Does The Punisher Play The Harp?

It’s easy to imagine The Punisher shooting up criminal hideouts and blowing off the heads of thugs and mob bosses as the ultimate punishment for their crimes. But it’s hard to imagine (and believe) that there is also very gentle side to The Punisher no one knows about except for The Defenders (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist), Microchip (aka David Linus Liberman), and Spider-man (aka Peter Parker) who actually saw and became amazed at him doing something no one has ever thought he could do with his violent hands– play the harp. A gentle stringed musical instrument no one could ever believe that The Punisher would have such talent and ability to use his otherwise destructive hands to gently and tenderly pluck and caress its strings. Why, you asked? Because Frank is doing this in memory of his family whom he communes with through songs, poems, and prayers as he gracefully wave his battle-scarred arms and hands across the strings to fill his private family shrine with harp music that moves The Punisher to joyful tears.

Where did the Idea of The Punisher and his Harp come from?

It’s a concept I, Sherry Konkus made up myself. It combines my new found obsession with The Punisher that I had since 2014 and my life long love for the harp. It is the very best concept I ever made. This is my version of The Punisher from Marvel Comics who is portrayed by me as the punishing harpist who plays the harp in memory of his late family who got killed by a criminal mob years ago and whenever he needs a break from waging a one man war against organized crime.

The Punisher was created by Gerry Conway with the help of artists John Romita, Sr. and Ross Andru. His name coined by Stan Lee. The Punisher is owned and trademarked by MARVEL.

The idea, concept, and inspiration behind The Punisher’s portrayal as The Punishing Harpist who plays the harp in memory of his family is in fact my own. Sweetest. Idea. Ever.
