"It was not Doc Doom and other villains at ground zero, just like it was not a young child crying for his fallen father. It was a representation...a symbol...a metaphor for real feelings and thoughts. It was, excuse the sugar-coating, JMS' and my heart and soul on those pages. I didn't ever cringe at the thought of those characters being in that spot. To me, it made sense. This kind of cowardly, unspeakable horror effects all of us...ALL OF US! I don't want to say..."Lighten Up"! I want everyone to concentrate on what happened on 9/11. Don't forget...Don't EVER forget!" -- John Romita Jr.

'Ultimate Knights' marked the final hurrah for Mark Bagley on 'Ultimate Spider-Man'. He would show up for guest spots (the most notable being the 'Death of Spider-Man' storyline and 'Ultimate End' if you count that) but this was the end of his stint as regular artist. At 111 issues together Bendis and Bagley had the longest-running partnership together on a Marvel title, a record that has yet to be broken.

Well, what’s interesting about the story that Brian Bendis has crafted for Civil War II is the superhero community’s reaction to Bruce’s death really runs the gamut -- and it should. Hawkeye kills Bruce under very questionable -- and debatable -- circumstances: Did Bruce pose a clear and present danger? Was Bruce going to “Hulk out”? Was Ulysses’ vision of the future about to come to pass? Reasonable minds can -- and do -- disagree about all of these questions.

The primary reason -- in my mind -- as to why there is so much debate within the superhero community is that many -- if not all -- of these questions come down to what Hawkeye thought was going to happen.

This isn't the best scene between Matt Murdock and Karen Page, but it is an interesting one. Matt finds Karen after a long absence, which involved Typhoid Mary.

Here's one of my favorite Daredevil stories, and it really isn't "special," aside from being the final issue of Ann Nocenti's run on the book. Also, the art is by Lee Weeks.

Ann Nocenti: I remember after a Captain America story we got a letter that said, "Get the commie off the book." We had a big laugh about that one. Luckily, I had an enlightened editor, Ralph Macchio, so while we had lots of fun conversation about the issues, and he often disagreed with my politics, he let me do what I wanted. He was an extremely supportive and intelligent editor.

DAREDEVIL #283 is an Ann Nocenti story that features artwork by Marc Bagley. It has "The Cold War is winding down, now what?" themes and guest stars Captain America.

DAREDEVIL #350 is the end of a story by J.M. DeMatteis that is an important but underrated part of Daredevil's history. Foggy finds out Matt is Daredevil (and is furious) and it is the end of the "Jack Batlin" era. Also, Matt's teacher Stick returns to give Matt a lesson in vigilante morality.
