Francesco and I have been joking about this panel a couple of times, and now is as good a time as any to poke a little fun at it. The scan below is from Daredevil #105 (vol 1) with art by Jim Starlin, and features the first meeting of Daredevil and Moondragon. Steve Gerber was a new writer on Daredevil, having come on board during the Dark Messiah story arc a half-dozen issues earlier and he took Matt all kinds of weird places. I probably don’t have to tell anyone why I think this scenario is funny, but I’m going to anyway…

“And that woman–! Even without hair… she’s the most strikingly beautiful female I’ve ever ‘seen’!”

Matt, oh Matt… If the art in this issue is any indication, she looks like someone with an egg for a head to you. It ain’t pretty, and the Dr Strange-esque cape isn’t exactly helping. Yeah, that’s really hot. Although, maybe it is to you. Well, since you’re blind and all that. Sure, a shape-sensing superpowered freak of a blind guy, but still. She an egghead! Or maybe a conehead (remember the SNL characters?). Whatever floats your boat buddy…


Disclaimer: This post was not meant to be an insult against women who are in fact bald, by choice or due to either chemotherapy or conditions like alopecia. Bald women can be very beautiful. Really. Just look at Sinead O’Connor. You just might want someone who isn’t a blind superhero tell you that. Also, no animals were harmed during the writing of this post.
