Daredevil has turned the Hand into a retributive justice organization and killed his arch enemy Bullseye (although no body was shown). Where will he go next? Will his best friends, Foggy Nelson and Dakota North be the next victims of his madness? Daredevil as a villain is interesting, although he never really is in control of his fate and other people are always playing him. I’m not sure what will be achieved with this storyline that has not been explored and done before in a Daredevil comic book. He’s been betrayed before. He’s gone crazy before. He’s beat up a lot of innocents and hurt Foggy and people he loves many many times before. Why do they even care at this point? The story doesn’t explain that. Foggy thinks the Kingpin is behind everything and is willing to forgive Matt Murdock another time. Again, that is the weakness of the story. It stays in the past and plays the old plots constantly and shows what a wreck Daredevil really is. How I long for a good Daredevil story arc where he can actually smile again. I’m not saying the story is bad. It clearly is not. But It’s not advancing the character as it appears it is doing. It’s just playing with old retreads from Frank Miller and I want to read more than a third generation Frank Miller Daredevil plot.
