Elektra faces her greatest challenge when she battles Bullseye in Daredevil #35, and she employs one of Matt Murdock’s greatest tactics.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Daredevil #35, on sale now from Marvel Comics.
Ever since Elektra Natchios took over the role of Daredevil, she has proved to be up to the task of being a superhero. Respecting Matt Murdock’s wishes to avoid using lethal force, Elektra has faced an entire symbiote army during the King in Black crossover, and now faces a murderous ensemble of Bullseye clones. As the showdown with Bullseye and his copies reaches its bloody climax, Elektra takes a move straight out of Matt’s old playbook to turn the tables on the deranged assassin.
Bullseye lures Elektra into an empty theater, revealing that he has taken two people hostage and intends to execute them on stage. Proving himself to be the original rather than a clone, Bullseye uses his hostages to coerce Elektra into walking into a trap. Fortunately, the Woman Without Fear has some tricks of her own, supplied by her impromptu ally Tony Stark, spoiling the fun for Bullseye and effectively saving the day in Daredevil #35 (by Chip Zdarsky, Stefano Landini, Francesco Mobili, Marcio Menyz and VC’s Clayton Cowles).
Tapping together her signature sai, Elektra emits a sort of echolocation from her weapons that reveals that Bullseye has two armed clones hiding in the shadow of the theater ready to gun down Daredevil as she approaches the stage. After revealing that the upgraded sai was provided by Tony Stark, Elektra dispatches both clones before setting her sights on the real deal, saving the hostages as Bullseye makes his escape.
Tony Stark has become something of a supporting character in Daredevil’s adventures recently, even before Elektra inherited the mantle. From attempting to keep Hell’s Kitchen’s real estate out of the hands of unscrupulous buyers to using his advanced nanotechnology to heal Elektra from her first encounter with the Bullseye clones, Stark has been a valuable ally, even without using his signature Iron Man armor. With Stark’s latest upgrade, Elektra finally has the tools she needs to regain her edge against her most personal foe and emerge triumphant from their tense rematch.
Even with Matt Murdock having broken free from prison and back to donning his crimson cowl, Elektra is poised to continue on in the Daredevil role in her own miniseries set to launch this January.
With her upgraded sai, Elektra now has Matt’s oldest trick at her disposal, ready to prove that anything Matt Murdock can do, she can do better as the two vigilantes approach Marvel’s next crossover event Devil’s Reign.
