From Daredevil #141, co-written by Marv Wolfman (plot) and Jim Shooter (script), with art by Gil Kane and Bob Brown. The glaze over his eyes? Need I say more? I think not…

Oh, and as a Swede, I’m simply stunned by DD’s prejudices against the Vikings.* I’ll have you know that most of them were peaceful merchants. Though I guess a significant percentage raped, pillaged and… Okay, never mind. 😉

*Bonus Viking trivia: Did you know that historians generally consider the Viking Age to have lasted from 793 AD (with the Norse attack on the monestary on the Scottish island of Lindesfarne) until just before the battle of Hastings in 1066 when Harald III of Norway attempted an invasion of England, only to be defeated by Harold Godwinson (Harold II), who in turn lost the throne to William the Conqueror. That’s right, I’m not just a science geek I do history too!

    Bloody Swedes. half of the treasures of Prague are there stolen in the 30 years war when the swedish army ransacked Prague. give em back.

    just joking:-) it is funny considering the peaceful reputation that you modern swedes have cultivated.

    anyway, i wonder how they could explain the “viking eyes” away. or if anyone else noticed.

    Harald vs Harold? Sounds like things got pretty hairy.
