About this deal

Kurten, Guillermo (2022-06-25). "10 Best Street-Level Heroes In Marvel Comics". ScreenRant . Retrieved 2022-11-15. Reid claimed that Daredevil would attempt to deceive her and turn her away from the Hand if were to battle each other again, although Elektra insisted this would not happen. Reid had then confessed to Elektra that she was dying, which confused Elektra as she noted that the Hand should be able to live forever, however, Reid confirmed it was true, noting that her own body was now shutting down from the inside. Reid noted that she needed the Resurrection Elixir which had been discovered in K'un-Lun which could return her to life and allow her to continue living her own life for thousands of more years. Steinbeiser, Andrew. "Elodie Yung Cast As Elektra For Daredevil Season 2". comicbook.com . Retrieved 7 July 2015. Elektra possesses levels of strength, speed, agility, reflexes, stamina, etc., that are at the pinnacle of human performance. She is an expert in Ninjutsu and various other martial arts, as well as gymnastics. She has also mastered the skills of the ancient ninja warriors of Japan. Brandon Gray (January 18, 2005). " 'In Good Company' Profits, 'Elektra' Tragic". Box Office Mojo. That marks the weakest debut for a Marvel Comics adaptation during the franchise's recent movie renaissance

Claudia Puig of USA Today writes "Her (Garner's) grace and mystical abilities make for a lonely burden, and we are supposed to feel her pain. Instead, we feel our own for having to sit through this silly movie." Puig concluded that Garner "is far more appealing when she's playing charming and adorable, as she did so winningly in 13 Going on 30. [26] Two contradictory accounts of her family history have been given. In Elektra: Root of Evil #1–4 (March–June 1995), Christina is killed by assassins hired by Orestez, while in Elektra #18 (1995), she is killed by an insurrectionist during the Greek Civil War. In both accounts, she gives premature birth to Elektra just before dying. Originally, in Daredevil #190, it was said that Elektra began training after her father's death, deserting to The Hand after being expelled from the Chaste.


a b Peter Schorn (October 18, 2005). "Elektra: Unrated Director's Cut". IGN. Archived from the original on October 21, 2005 . Retrieved November 28, 2021. Avery Score (June 3, 2005). "Elektra Review. Unless you're a fan of the Elektra continuum, there's no reason to choose this game over similar and superior offerings". GameSpot. In an assignment that would help solidify her reputation as an assassin, Elektra was hired to kill Carlos Huevos, the dictator of a small South American country. Her success brought her to the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D., which sent agents John Garrett and Arthur Perry to determine the assailant's identity. The U.S. sent its own ambassador, Reich, upon whom Elektra discovered the stench of the Beast, the powerful being that controlled the Hand. Elektra slew Reich, only to discover that the Beast had switched hosts and now possessed Ken Wind, a U.S. presidential candidate. Elektra used her skills to manipulate Garrett into assisting her, managing to thwart S.H.I.E.L.D. and to kill Wind, but Garrett was wounded in the process. To ease his pain, Elektra made the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent believe he had switched bodies with Wind and become president.

Elektra however is resurrected by the Hand after she died. Matt, as Daredevil, tried to stop the ritual, and thought that he had succeeded. It is however revealed that the resurrection was successful and Elektra left New York City to train on top of a snowy mountain. We all love a mystery, and Elektra is certainly that. She usually keeps herself at an arm's distance from everyone, even her greatest love, Matt Murdoch. She's had a traumatic life and has a job that certainly takes a deep emotional toll. Keeping all of this to herself protects her from demons that she fears will hurt those around her. In a lot of ways, she's like Catwoman, but far darker and even more complex. The plot concerns a United States Presidential candidate, called Ken Wind (his campaign slogan: “Not wind like a watch, but wind – like the air”). He’s a John F. Kennedy lookalike, about to become the next president. However he is not what he appears. Wind is a puppet, possessed by the Beast, a monstrous inhuman force. This being intends to use America’s nuclear arsenal to trigger Armageddon by firing every missile at Russia, ensuring a retaliation that will destroy the Earth. Elektra accidentally discovers this doomsday plan while on a mission in South America, so has to reach Washington and somehow prevent Ken Wind from becoming President.The Hand's next target would be Melvin Potter also known as the Gladiator. Daredevil after an explosion outside his lawyers office would still be recuperating in hospital and the explosion would had wrought injury to him including robbing him of his radar senses. Despite that Daredevil would struggle to his feet to find Melvin Potter who he had been informed of via radio was being transported by van from one jail facility to another. A Wild West version of Elektra resides on the Battleworld domain of the Valley of Doom. She is seen as a minion of Governor Roxxon alongside Bullseye, Grizzly, and Otto Octavius where they were first seen intimidating Judge Franklin Nelson into leaving town so that he wouldn't preside over Red Wolf's trial. Sheriff Steve Rogers and Red Wolf later fought the villains which ended with Otto Octavius being killed in battle, Bullseye killing Sheriff Rogers, and Natasha Barnes diverting the remaining villains in the other direction so that she can hide Red Wolf. [81] Elektra and Grizzly later fought Red Wolf again where they end up defeated by him. [82] When he was incarcerated, Elektra paid him a visit and told him about The Fist. Daredevil remained silent until Elektra spoke of the need for a King and Queen, which led him to dismiss her. She insisted it was what he had always wanted, but Matt still didn't trust her and told her off, claiming she had to prove to him she was on the side of Light. Determined to show him she wasn't simply a murderer, Elektra became the new Daredevil in his absence. [1]
