Marvel Edge

Marvel Edge was a short-lived Marvel Comics imprint lasting from 1995 to 1996, right before the Onslaught Saga. Some of Marvel's "edgier" (more adult) titles were moved into the Marvel Edge imprint. These included titles featuring such characters as Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider, the Hulk, Nick Fury, and the Punisher. Marvel Edge was essentially the precursor to Marvel Knights. It was also, in a sense, the successor to Midnight Sons, as it incorporated Ghost Rider and Dr. Strange after that line and the rest of the titles were cancelled.

The imprint was launched with the storyline Over the Edge, where The Punisher went temporarily insane. He became convinced Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. were responsible for the death of his family, and pursued Fury through various titles which would form the core of the imprint, finally killing him. This led into a relaunch of the Punisher title, where the mafia faked Castle's execution and recruited him as mob boss.
