"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Every day this week will see me feature a brand-new Cool Comic Book Moment. For this week only, I’ll be specifically featuring cool moments that happened so far this year. Here is an archive of all the past cool comic moments that I’ve featured so far.
Today we look at the twist in Daredevil’s new nemesis in last month’s Daredevil #25 by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee…
In Mark Waid and Chris Samnee’s Daredevil, Matt Murdock has been running afoul of some mysterious organization and in this issue, he meets their main warrior, a fellow named Ikari who is dressed in a variation of Daredevil’s original costume and who also has radar sense like Daredevil. The two have a pitched battle and as Daredevil struggles with battling someone with the same powers as him, he realizes something, he has one advantage – he has been doing this longer!
A very clever idea by Daredevil (and Waid – who is constantly making fascinating observations about Daredevil’s setup during this series).
But then, the cruel twist…
Yep, Ikari has radar sense but he can also SEE! As you might imagine, things don’t go so well for Daredevil after that.
What a clever twist by Waid (it is almost an afterthought by this point, but also, WOW, Chris Samnee drew the hell out of the entire fight sequence)!
