Daredevil Adds a Classic Avenger's Weapon to His Personal Arsenal

Nov 23, 2022 · 15


The following contains spoilers for Daredevil #5, now on sale from Marvel Comics.

Daredevil#5 sees Matt Murdock / Daredevil beat down an Avenger and steal his weapon in the process.

Written by Chip Zdarsky and illustrated by Marco Checchetto, with colors by Matthew Wilson and letters by VC's Clayton Cowles, the issue sees the Man Without Fear face off against John Walker / U.S. Agent. After defeating Walker, Daredevil takes his shield and adds it to his weapons collection.

Picking up after the events of Daredevil Volume 6 and the Devil's Reign crossover event, the current Daredevil run finds the titular hero leading the Fist, an organization of assassins dedicated to defeating the Hand. This set Matt on a collision course with the Punisher, who is the new leader of the Hand.

As the new leader of the Fist, despite having strong feelings for Kirsten McDuffie, Matt was forced to marry Elektra Natchios to fulfill the prophecy that states that the King and Queen of the Fist will play vital roles in defeating the Hand. "I love Kirsten. I love Elektra. Life is complicated," Matt said to himself in an inner monologue back in Issue #4.

Created by Stan Lee and Bill Everett, Matt Murdock / Daredevil made his comics debut in April 1964's Daredevil #1. The son of boxer Jack Murdock, Matt was blinded as a young boy by radioactive substance that fell out of a spiraling truck. While he lost his sight, his other senses were greatly enhanced. After his father was killed by mobsters for refusing to throw a fight, Matt dedicated his life to fighting crime in New York City, specifically his home neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen, as a lawyer by day and a superhero by night.

Created by Mark Gruenwald and Paul Neary, John Walker / U.S. Agent made his comics debut in November 1986's Captain America #323. After being discharged from the United States Army, John looks for other ways to serve his country. He connects with the Power Broker, who gives him a serum that grants him superhuman abilities. A more rash and reactionary hero compared to Steve Rogers / Captain America, he starts his superhero career as the corporate Super-Patriot. When Steve abandoned the mantle of the Star-Spangled Avenger, John took over the role. Steve would eventually return as Captain America, while John would go on to become U.S. Agent, even getting his own shield. More an antihero than a full-blown superhero, John has worked with the Avengers, as well as the Dark Avengers and Thunderbolts.
