Daredevil #7

Daredevil #7Someone is screwing with Elektra and Daredevil. Learning the fact that Elektra is searching for a missing daughter that might be his leads Matt Murdock to question everything. When the entire affair turns out to be a web of lies meant only to hurt Daredevil through Elektra it’s obvious we have a new (or perhaps old) villain in play.

Given everything we learn in this issue turns out to be lies, Daredevil #7 feels a bit empty by the time the last page is turned. What we do learn has to be read between the lines. Someone with a knowledge of Elektra’s relationship with Matt Murdock, and knowing the blind lawyer in Hell’s Kitchen enjoys wearing red tights in his spare time (something not even Elektra remembers), is taking one hell of a suicidal risk by toying with the emotions of the world’s most deadly assassin.

To what end anyone would do this, other than to screw with Daredevil, remains unclear. What is clear is a dangerous puppet master has made his first move. Worth a look.
