Daredevil #12

Super cute (the art :3 ) self-contained issue about how Matt and Foggy became friends.

Idgaf about Foggy and I loved it, tbh.

From the preview pages (easier to screencap :[):

Matt finally goes on a date with ADA Kirsten! Enlists the help of a bodyguard:

Ms Kirsten asks Matt if Foggy is his bff, and Matt tells the story about how they met in Columbia. They were roommates, ofc, but first impressions were NOT GOOD - at least Matt's impression of Foggy wasn't, anyway. (Understandable, imo, Foggy looks like he smells.) But then they were united by UNJUST ACCUSATIONS! Foggy was accused of plagiarizing a paper, you see. Matt and honorable judge Bobble to the rescue:

I hate making screencaps from comixology omg :[ BUT CUTE BOOK, WORTH IT!!!

I thought Murdock would have learned to stop dating.

She can take Herc, I don't think Matt will offer anything too damaging... oh, you are talking about something else.

Matt does have the Magic Stick--his just happens to be the same variety as John Constantine's.

Does that make fridging an STD? Could all this misery have been avoided if Matt just wore magic-proof condoms? Why did I follow this train of thought?

I'd say yes? Was/is Kyle Rayner also contaminated only fanon knows!

Also what should we call this STI?

Have they ever done that? If not, I'm surprised no one's thought of it before.

He learnt to get a bodyguard is what I read here.

Me too :(
I never liked Karen. Or... whatshername the first girlfriend...

And I may get lynched for this, but I didn't like Elektra either.

Well I read the entire run of her.... up until before she went crazy, so I guess that's it.

Kirsten is so dead. Maybe Waid won't kill her, but you bet the next writer will. He or she will also bring back the Hand, the Kingpin and Bullseye, becasue "that's how Daredevil rolls".

Ah, but it's not Matt's fault. He isn't the one writing his stories.

I think the real problem is that ever since Elektra, every other writer that's done Daredevil wants to give him that same "dead girlfriend angst". Much like the "mutant angst" it gets old pretty quickly.

but always pairing superheroes, doesn't it get to the point where it feels like they're only together because of their powers

[personal profile] darkknightjrk 2012-05-02 08:01 pm (UTC)(link)
I think part of the problem is that a lot of them generally use the same trope of "oh noes my girl/boyfriend's been kidnapped/assaulted/murdered by my arch nemesis!" Which can happen to super-powered partners, too, but then they have more of a shot of making it out with little to know injury or psychological trauma.

This continues to prove that Matt's blindness has only been an asset when it comes to women.
Too bad everything else is out to kill them the moment either partner shows interest.

It's interesting...I like the character interaction and the art...but the main story I'm just having problems caring about. I REALLY wish they'd just finished off this whole Megacrime thing with the Omega Effect.

DD: I'm going on a date.
Spidey: With Black Cat?
DD: No.
Spidey: I'll do it.


That's how you use existing continuity as a plus, not a minus, writers.

I really like the "trying-to-prove-he's-Daredevil" flirting they have going on. It's like Silver Age Lois and Clark, only I don't think Lois ever flashed Clark.

What precisely is Spider-Man hanging from in his panel?

As you may know if you played Marvel vs. Capcom 3, one of Spider-Man's less-known powers is the ability to make his webs stick to anything, including atmospheric conditions.
