When Charles Soule started his Daredevil run DD's secret identity was back in the closet, with only Foggy Nelson knowing who he really was. Today's issue revealed what caused the new status quo.

Daredevil visits his girlfriend Kirsten, from Mark Waid's run, but she doesn't know he's really Matt anymore.

Maybe this was explained elsewhere, but I think there's a little discrepancy with how the mindwipe thing was supposed to work. Before it was shown that Elektra remembers being with both Matt and Daredevil, she just thinks they were two different people and that she was cheating on Matt. Here Kirsten only remembers being with Matt.

Daredevil visits Foggy, who doesn't remember who he is either until he unmasks.

Daredevil goes back to the Purple Man's machine, only to find it destroyed. He fights some crime and sees that nobody else knows who he really is anymore either.

Matt breaks up with her.

Actually he probably could since he wouldn't be harming Peter just May and death is a part of life. At the end of the day Mephisto being a devil figure should twist every deal anyone ever makes with him to screw them over in some way. Of course that was never going to happen since the entire demon deal was a poorly thought out retcon to get rid of something editorial wanted gone.

The most amusing thing in a how could they be so stupid way about the entire thing is editorial probably figured folks would forget about it and in a few years no one would bring it up(like countless other shitty storylines) but instead hero selling his marriage to the devil has pretty much become one of the defining examples of a shitty story line at editorial whims regardless of how it tarnishes the characters.

Mephisto as a character has existed since the very beginning managing to screw folks who make deals with him but out of the blue just this once he doesn't and can't cause Peter and MJ in a moment of weakness some how out negotiated him so all he can do is a last minute petty see you aborted your future daughter moment but you won't even remember.

If he litterlaly cannot interfear with anyone important to peter than that makes the deal an even worse deal for him. him not being able to directly touch Peter is one thing. Him not being able to touch anyone peter cares about doesn't make sense. He has also interacted with Flash and others sense then so it makes no sense to me.

Point though I still contend the entire one more day deal was badly written and clearly just an editorial fiat and even if we go by the premise that Mephisto can't do a thing to Peter or his family it was still the wrong thing to do. The fact editorial was planning to use Mephisto to undo the marriage off and on for years just makes it worse. Since it means they never thought things through despite having several years to do it in.
