Daredevil: Woman Without Fear Will Unearth Elektra's Darkest Secret

Warning! Spoilers for Daredevil: Woman Without Fear #1 by Marvel Comics below

Marvel's new Daredevil is getting her own limited series, as Elektra will star in Daredevil: Woman Without Fear. This week, Marvel Comics announced Elektra's Daredevil would be receiving a three-issue series that will focus on both a mysterious deadly counter and the Kingpin unearthing the hero's biggest secret. The comic will spin out of the upcoming Devil's Reign event.

In the current Marvel Comics continuity, Elektra has become the Woman Without Fear. The former villain agreed to protect Hell's Kitchen after the original Daredevil, Matt Murdock, turned himself in for murdering a mobster. In his absence, Elektra adopted the Daredevil moniker and agreed to vow not to kill. As a result, the hero has faced off against several classic Daredevil villains, including Bullseye (multiple versions), Typhoid Mary, and the Kingpin - the latter of whom is about to make his play for the Marvel Universe. In Devil's Reign, Wilson Fisk will begin his quest to take down all superheroes - including Elektra.

Spinning out of the events of Devil's Reign, which will see several Marvel Comics heroes getting captured by Kingpin's law enforcement, Daredevil: Woman Without Fear will focus on Elektra's Daredevil adapting to the Mayor of New York's takeover attempt. According to solicits, the comic will follow up on a shocking revelation from Devil's Reign and put the hero on a direct path of someone with deadly consequences. Chip Zdarsky, the writer behind the current Marvel Comics Daredevil run, will pen the three-issue limited series with art from Rafael De LaTorre. Check out the Frank Miller-inspired cover for Daredevil: Woman Without Fear from Chris Bachalo below.


Chip Zdarsky told ComicBook.com that Elektra's story was too big to be left contained in the Devil's Reign event. He added Wilson Fisk will unearth the newest Daredevil's darkest secret, which will cause considerable fallout for the hero.

When we were planning out Devil's Reign it become apparent early on that Elektra's story is too big to be contained in the main series," Zdarsky told ComicBook.com. "Wilson Fisk has unearthed her darkest secret and I'm super excited for readers to see the fallout in this series!

Marvel Comics also revealed a handful of spinoff titles for the Devil's Reign event, including Devil's Reign: Villains For Hire by Clay McLeod Chapman and Manuel Garcia, Devil's Reign: Superior Four by Zac Thompson and Davide Tinto, Devil's Reign: X-Men by Gerry Duggan and Phil Noto, and Devil's ReignWinter Soldier by Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing.

The question remains: what secret is Kingpin about to unearth? Will Elektra kill again, leading Wilson Fisk to try to expose the truth to Marvel's original Daredevil? Or does he know something which will change Elektra's time as Daredevil forever? Readers will find out more when Daredevil: Woman Without Fear comes to comic book stores on January 12, 2022.
