While gathering material for the other posts I’m working on, I came across this panel that I thought was so terrible that I just had to post it right away. Remember Foggy Nelson? The good guy? Well, imagine the following…
You have just been told that your best friend and law partner, who also happens to be blind, is missing in a ship wreck. The girl both you and your friend are in love with cries on your shoulder. Now, what do you think? “Oh no! Not Matt, he was my best friend! What if he’s really dead?!” Well, that’s what a modern Foggy would think, but back when he was stuck in the Love Triangle of Doom (okay, I just made that up) his concerns were a little more selfish. Take a look at this shot from Daredevil #13.
Description: Foggy is comforting Karen after the two have heard of his predicatment. Foggy says “Don’t cry honey! I know how you feel, but the coast guard is doing all they can! Matt may still show up!” Karen responds “But he couldn’t see! He might have been..washed overboard!! How could he ever save himself?!! And it’s our fault! We let him go away! We should have stopped him… should have told him we wanted him… needed him… But we didn’t!” Foggy is now thinking to himself: “How can she cry over him like that, unless… she loves him?”
Well, Foggy… Maybe because she’s not as cold and unfeeling as you? Thank goodness Foggy changed!
Oh, and if you’re wondering, Matt isn’t really dead. He’s fighting Ka-Zar without the benefit of his powers so he actually is in a pretty tight spot as we – they – speak.
