The following article contains a spoiler from Daredevil (2019) #25. If you haven’t read the latest issue click away from this site now!
There’s a new devil lurking in Hell’s Kitchen and all hell is about to break loose! Marvel has been on a stellar run with most of their recent comics! Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto’s run on Daredevil is one of the company’s best comics on stands! For those who aren’t caught up here’s a quick recap, Matt has been sentenced to two years in prison after he confessed to an accidental death that’s haunted since the first issue.
While this isn’t his first time he’s been behind bars, Matt’s problems are far from over. Iron Fist won’t be there to cover for him. Anyway, Elektra ends up buying Hell’s Kitchen from Stromwyns, the malevolent billionaires who have been making life hell for both Daredevil and Mayor Wilson Fisk. As the issue opens, she pays Daredevil a visit inside the prison. Elektra then tries to convince him to escape and leave with her to work together against the Hand. Matt refuses. He doesn’t trust Elektra, and if she wants anything from him, she’ll have to earn that trust. However, a chance encounter with one of Matt’s former clients gives Elektra a new perspective on Hell’s Kitchen and the people who live there. They’re Elektra’s people now, and she’s got something to prove to Matt.
Before you scroll down any further, I am giving you one last chance to back away. Well, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
With a sleek new costume and non-lethal sai’s, Elektra becomes the newest Daredevil of Hell’s Kitchen! Gotta say I’m pretty excited to see where this will go! If Matt is going to serve his 2yrs in prison, then maybe that’s how long Elektra will hold onto the title. Of course this being comics we’re talking about so anything can change.
