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.

Still a better mindwipe than OMD.

wait, how is Matt using a smart phone?

is his sense of touch supposed to be so sensitive that he can feel the electrons through the glass?

Wait, what? He doesn't want to retell his secret ID to his girlfriend so he breaks up with her?

That's like what shitty Superhero boyfriend would do in a parody, dude.

"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."

Not just Elektra, but Black Widow too. So yeah, it is weird that it's not the same with Kristen.

Something would have happened. It always does.

Yeah but... As cursed as Matt's seed is, how many of those "somethings" came about as a direct result of his being Daredevil?

Honestly, they should have just gave Mephisto a ring and had him sort the whole mess out.
He's a fair-minded kind of guy, always honours his arrangements, real salt of the earth type.

Now that's settled, we can find out what Matt's big "End crime in New York forever" plan is. Hopefully not something Reed Richards considered, but decided was "something Victor would do when he was in a bad mood."

The Purple Man and a derivative of Doctor Doom's psycho-prism's honestly the most elegant way this could've been pulled off.

This makes as much sense as the Iron Man mindwipe we saw in one of his annuals. Nobody writes down information like this? Nobody has data saved on their computers or phones or whatever? It's all in everybody's head? You'd think Kingpin would have a Murdock file where he has a list of every little thing he could use against him under right circumstances.

It's just bull. At least when they put Superman's identity back in the closet they had a decent way out. This just doesn't fly with me. I'm glad I quit buying when I did.

Like others here, I don't agree with how Kirsten is tossed to the curb, but I like the idea of Kilgrave's children doing the mindwipe to everyone. Unlike Mephisto and Spider-Man, it keeps Matt in character because he didn't take any deal with the devil to do it. And he also has to deal with the consequences, for good and bad. And let's face it, part of Matt's character is that he makes a LOT of dumb, irrational decisions. He's a very flawed character and it's one of the things I find interesting about him. It's one of the reason's he's my second favourite superhero.

But yeah, tossing Kirsten to the curb like that? Not cool.

Out of curiosity, how IS Soule's run in general? The last Daredevil stuff I read was Waid's run because that ended on a pretty satisfying note for me. Especially since the previous two runs, Bendis and Brubaker, both ended on cliffhangers (prison, leading The Hand). I'd been reading Daredevil since Kevin Smith's story and the way Waid's run ended, it felt like a good jumping off point for me. What I'd skimmed of Soule's stuff didn't really do it for me.
