Daredevil’s secret, safe once more
Well, number one, I’m happy Marvel made DD’s secret a secret once again. There aren’t a ton of heroes in the Marvel U that have secret ID’s after all, and it was part of what I liked about Daredevil . So, whatever the reason that it’s secret again, I dig it.
I have to imagine though, that Mephisto is involved here. One of the biggest demons in Marvel’s version of hell, Mephisto made a similar deal for Spider-Man not all that long ago. Peter Parker got his secrets back, with the world forgetting that he had taken the mask off publicly. There was a cost though, but you knew that already since we’re talking deals with demons.
That cost was that Pete was no longer married too MJ. So that begs the question- what’d Matt give up? And I guess, who’s he sacrifice whatever it was to? I know I’m glancing ‘Phisty’s way here, but it could easily have been some other supernatural character. After all, we pretty clearly see a few scattered in this preview.
Whatever it was, and whoever it is that ‘helped’ him, we’ll find out soon enough. Daredevil #17 brings some answers to fans on February 15th. Scroll down for the preview.
