One piece of news to come out of Fan Expo Canada, currently underway in Toronto, is an upcoming one-shot starring the Man Without Fear and his former lover. This tale, as we would expect from the What If? concept, takes us back in time and has things play out a little differently. From Marvel.com:
“The heart-rending story of the Man Without Fear and his ill-fated lover fills out an entire book by itself. Karl Bollers returns to inquire, ‘What If Daredevil Died and Was Resurrected By the Hand?’
‘What could corrupt Matt Murdock,’ he muses. ‘Or who? And that’s the direction we decided to go in. Matt is corrupted by outside forces and becomes an agent of evil. Elektra’s father not dying, though, is what starts the dominoes tumbling-or falling into place, depending on how you want to look at it.'”
Below is one of the two preview images available in the article listed above, and obviously answers the question I’m sure I couldn’t have been the only one to wonder about: Will Matt’s eyes turn red when resurrected? 😉
On a different note, does this mean that none of the Hand stuff currently going on in the main title will actually involve Matt dying and being resurrected? There’s been nothing to really indicate that, but I was a little worried since that’s not something I would want for Daredevil. Anyway, what do you think about this news? Discuss away in the comments!
