2. Daredevil kills

Marvel Comics: Daredevil: Know Fear

Before Chip Zdarsky started his run as writer of Daredevil, Matt Murdock was hit by a truck. Unlike most superheroes, Matt is human. Sure, his senses are heightened far beyond almost anyone. The problem is his body is just like a normal human. He needed time to heal and relearn everything it took to be a hero.

On his comeback outing back as the Man Without Fear, (the first issue of the Zdarsky run), Daredevil accidentally kills someone. Being the person that he is, Matt didn’t hide from his crime. He faced his day in court, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, and went to prison as Daredevil. After this, Elektra became the protector of Hell’s Kitchen.

1. War on heroes

Marvel Comics: Devil’s Reign

Towards the end of the first run from Chip Zdarsky, Daredevil and Mayor Wilson Fisk were at each other’s throats again. This time, Matt made the mistake of antagonizing his rival. Fisk didn’t take DD’s jokes too well. Instead of brushing off the jokes, New York’s Mayor outlawed superheroes in New York and created his own Thunderbolts to enforce his new law.

At first glance, this seemed very much like Marvel Comics Civil War. There are obvious similarities like heroes being outlawed. The difference here is that Fisk had a personal vendetta. For example, he went as far as having the Fantastic Four thrown into jail and giving Otto Octavius the run of the Baxter Building.

The best part about this series is the ending. A lot happened that no one would have seen coming. A perfect way to end Chip’s first run of Daredevil. This writer won’t say what happened. You’ll have to check it out on your own.
