And the change was influenced by none other than Daredevil!
Warning: spoiler alert!
Matt Murdock doesn’t do well in comics. During the recent events of the Daredevil comic book series, the hero was sentenced to two years in prison and remains in custody. However, Hell’s Kitchen was not left unprotected: in his absence, none other than the character’s former passion, Elektra, seemed to take on his role.
Elektra appears to have actually adopted the role, receiving a new costume that references Daredevil himself, and also having modified his weapons (via ComicBook). The character is famous for having used his pair of sai, while the only weapon the Daredevil uses is his staff, which in addition to being used in combat also has a kind of harpoon, an element that Elektra has adapted for his sai.
During her brief period as heroine, Elektra has already faced off against a classic Daredevil villain, Typhoid Mary, but she has to deal with a lot more in the future, as it looks like she will be responsible for protecting Hell’s Kitchen. while Matt is incarcerated, and Wilson Fisk is the current mayor of New York.
The Daredevil series is currently written by Chip Zdarsky and illustrated by Marco Checchetto, who also made the cover art which you can check out below:
