Daredevil’s “Fresh Start” could Just Be His End
Adventurer and Elektra get on a course that results in doom on their mission to get rid of the Hand and also The Punisher, the man that controls them
The Man Without Fear, Daredevil, has actually been dealt a poor hand his entire life, bogged down with constant tragedies as well as loss. In Daredevil # 1 (Zdarsky, Checchetto, De Latorre, Wilson), readers see where that’s led him: rejoining his mentor Stick, along with Elektra, and re-engaging in The Fist’s divine objective to get rid of The Hand.
Certainly, that likewise indicates tangling with their new leader: Frank Castle, The Punisher. And as any kind of fan of Daredevil or the Punisher understands, encounters in between both rarely end with either side unbruised and commonly with a minimum of one blood loss. With each now aligned with long-running secret cultures that have spent decades– otherwise centuries– committed to sharpening their violence to maximum efficiency, that quantity of bloodshed is bound to increase.
Although both Daredevils– Matt and also Elektra– are looking for a fresh start together, Stick seems to acknowledge the quixotic nature of their attempt. Stick shows on Elektra and also Matt’s reignited love event, commenting, “You recognize one of you are doomed? Guide is pretty damned clear on that–” foreshadowing a possible fatality or life-altering occasion. Offered just how much awful stuff generally occurs to Murdock, It’s safe to presume he’s in for a rough trip.
Daredevil has actually enjoyed Elektra pass away previously, so a role turnaround that places Murdock in the location of the dropped enthusiast and casts Elektra as the one experiencing his murder at Punisher’s hand would be a brilliant re-imagining. The Daredevil landscape might well never be the exact same once again.
A final battle between Daredevil as well as The Punisher feels inevitable. Robert “Goldy” Goldman, a former classmate of Matt’s and also Foggy Nelson’s, exposes that he knows Daredevil’s secret identity and also the complex information of Matt’s life. For the very first time, Daredevil is afraid something other than God himself.
Given Daredevil’s long history and all the terrible occasions that dot his timeline, it’s particular that more heartbreak as well as death are concerning him and also his allies. Stick’s forecast of doom would certainly be sensible also without The Hand and Frank Castle’s involvement, however in between them and Robert Goldman, Matt absolutely has his job cut out for him. Which’s just making it through, don’t bother saving the globe. The Punisher is a lot more dangerous than ever before with being in control of The Hand, and also if Goldy really feels similarly concerning Elektra that he did Kirsten, she’s in temporal risk. A new beginning is all Matt was searching for when he left New York, yet his fresh start could be the end of him or those he likes. The Man Without Fear just located a factor (or 2) to be frightened, as well as truly so.
