So where we last left off, ambitious underboss Samuel Silke attempted to overthrow and assassinate the Kingpin with the help of Richard Fisk, the Kingpin's son. He failed and the Kingpin's wife Vanessa Fisk retaliated. With his life in danger, Silke fled to the FBI for protection with the only information he was willing to give up: Daredevil's secret identity.

In Daredevil #31, we pick up with the two FBI agents who were with Silke. They report their findings to the FBI director. After bringing the director up to speed on the Kingpin, the agents bring up the bombshell that Silke dropped.

They go through most of Daredevil's history and how it ties into Murdock's; the events of Born Again, Elektra, etc. All the while the director is drawing over the photo of Murdock.


We go to a flashback to last issue and follow one of the two FBI agents. Long story short, one of them is poor, in a rocky marriage and decides to sell it to the Globe.


The beginning of the issue has Jonah at a boardroom meeting. He has a list of their salaries with him because he wants to know how much it cost him to get "his tookis kicked this badly." He's pissed, in other words, that someone else got the DD expose before he did.

Jonah goes on like this for a bit until Ben Urich interrupts him and tells him that it's not true.

Foggy is trying to convince Matt to give up the costume, saying it's brought Matt nothing but misery.


Daredevil waits above the crowd of paparazzi.

Foggy Nelson meanwhile is finding himself attacked by Mr. Hyde, who wants revenge against Murdock. He's stopped by none other than Spider-Man.


Matt gives his press conference.

Later, Black Widow pays a visit to Matt, asking him to put on his costume and go out with her because the city needs him. He turns down her offer. Frustrated that Matt appears to be pushing aside his costumed identity, she makes a phone call.

Now what I've heard is instead of Elektra, Bullseye was going to be here before Kevin Smith intervened (see my last post). Don't know how true it is, but the next issue would have been significantly different.


The issue opens with a flashback to Matt and Elektra when they were in college in bed together. He tells her that he would like it both of them could never leave the room and just stay there like this.

Present time...

Elektra appears to be under the impression, from Black Widow, that Matt needed to see her.

The next day, the Globe's lawyer comes to chew out Matt Murdock and tells him he can stick his lawsuit up his "fake blind, lying superhero, vigilante fazoo" and that the Globe's owner has no intention settling this out of court but to smack Matt around a courtroom.

Daredevil later pays a visit to the FBI agent who sold him out to the Globe, staring at him silently through his apartment window and scaring the crap out of him. The Globe no longer has their source to back them up now.

Matt later has a meeting with the Globe's owner, Mr. Rosenthal. Now he's willing to make an offer with Matt, and the two, after some negotiating, agree to seventy-five million and a printed apology in the Metro section. Matt wants half of the check to go to the National Endowment for the Blind and the other half to go the Hell's Kitchen Restoration Society. He also wants no layoffs from the Globe for two full calendar years because he knows the settlement isn't going to hurt the Globe.

Rosenthal's still clearly pissed because he believes he was telling the truth and Matt called him a liar on television, and Matt is a bit smug at how it's turned out for him. Matt turns to leave.

It depends a whole lot on who's writing him - the /good/ writers tend to remember that aside from his hatred for Spider-Man, he's got a crapton of integrity and balls and spine of solid Adamantium -- he once kicked a big shot that was helping him go after Spider-man out when he discovered that the guy had been threatening Peter Parker with physical violence in order to get the identity of SM out of him.

I dunno...there may be some examples of him being a good guy, but once you create a couple of super-villains with your own money, saying that you have any integrity kinda goes out the window to me.
