Jake NIman, former soldier in the war on terror, now discharged and a family man. OR at least he was until he, his wife and daughter get shot up in the park during what appears to be a mob shoot out....
Frank reads about this in the news and sets out to find those responsible, as he is on the trail we see flashbacks of Jake as a soldier and it shows that he was basically two soldiers, diplomat and unstoppable killing machine. Now he's discharged and claims to be done with killing.
Frank visits him in the hospital and tells him that he is going after the ones that did this and Jake sits up and tells Frank "You will stand down soldier, because I am going to kill them MYSELF!"
Also here is a preview of ish 2:
I quite enjoyed it. I enjoyed the prospect of an even more messed up mirror image of Frank - similar origin, similar skills, similar backround, similar motivations - but this guy makes Frank look positively balanced and sane by comparison.
Sadly, I expect that rather than introduce a new nemesis for Frank, this story will see Johnny dead by the end of it - probably at the hands of Frank himself when he realises that the guy is too unhinged.
Nice seeing Tex back on art aswell.
