Will Daredevil get his powers back? It is probably a pretty good possibility seeing as he is not a billionaire playboy and can’t buy or make super toys to fight crime. But the journey to rid his body of the nano-bots will be a fun one. Again Mark Waid goes about things in a bit of a different manner as we have some of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes show up to help out their comrade.
Now it is obvious that Daredevil has not seen an inkling of the A vs. X crossover, which is a very good thing. This allows Tony Stark, Hank Pym, and Doctor Strange the chance to swoop in and try and make Daredevil all better. The process is rather interesting. I don’t want to spoil anything but I will say that I wish they had developed this a bit more over two issues instead of one. I felt like more could have been done here. But that is not to say it wasn’t an interesting issue. It very much was with Foggy suddenly blasting Matt in his personal life at the same time he is dealing with his superhero woes.
Mark Waid is definitely not gentle in the way he treats this character. But, that is a very good thing. Strive and problems to overcome is why we read comics in the first place. The art by Chris Samnee is again pretty solid. The only really issue I had in this issue was that his Tony Stark and Doctor Strange look a whole heck of a lot alike. I know they usually do anyways, but when you put them side by side there should be a little something more different about them. Twins separated at birth?
Another 9 out of 10 rating? Yup it sure is. Even with the pace passing over what I thought could be an interesting development, this is still a great read and in my personal Top 3 series of the year to be reading. It is just a great book for any comic lover.
