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!

  1. I have to say that this is probably one issue that I won't be waiting for. Maybe the story will be better than it sounds. I certainly hope so. Never have been a huge fan of the "What If's"

  2. Sounds quite pathetic. DD has a character of his own and so does Elektra. Their respective characters are recognized by the readers. What's the point of distorting that completely?
    Also, the art doesn't look particularly intriguing.

  3. They’ve also done something similar to this already. Miller did a what if Elektra lived (back when he thought she would stay dead) and there was a What If DD was a disciple of Dr. Strange, a similar concept. But I’ll check this out. As for the main story, I also wouldn't want to see Matt resurrected.

  4. What Ifs are often quite disappointing but I like Karl Bollers' writing and the artwork is quite peculiar so I might pick this up.
