They Can’t All Be Matches

While metahumans, mutants, and demigods certainly outperform actual police officers in terms of apocalypse prevention and supervillain apprehension, they are more often than not sorely lacking in another important aspect of crime fighting; Undercover work.

Take a guy like Daredevil, for instance. Daredevil can sit on a rooftop enjoying a cup of coffee (if someone who can taste each and every individual fecal coliform can ever truly enjoy anything) and listen to entire blocks of the city at a time, pinpointing crimes and swooping in to save the day. And all without the use of his eyes!  However, when it comes to getting his hands dirty and doing some deep cover reconnaissance, he sticks out like a sore thumb.

Undercover - Shades 1

I mean, maybe he doesn’t know that wearing sunglasses indoors is a fairly uncommon? He’s sitting in a bar in Manhattan in the early 1980s, I’d say we’re probably talking about a dimly lit joint. The gang here at Josie’s Bar know that this stranger is either a blind person or a serious douchebag. Like a Guy Fieri level douchebag. He has to let them know that he’s just a tough customer! A rough and tumble street smart fella who doesn’t take any guff from any tuff, and what better way to demonstrate than to toss a few guys through a window.

Undercover - Shades 2

Defenestration = Demonstration

Hey, “Shades”…. you know who throws people through that window all of the time? Daredevil. If you want to hide the fact that you’re Daredevil, try acting a bit less like Daredevil.

Against their better judgement Martian Luthor Kang and Biff Tannen binge watched the new Marvel Daredevil show on Netflix over the course of two days. With their bodies and minds decomposing they sat down to tell the world what they thought of the series for better or worse. Did it live up to our wish list? Find out below.

Gone Bingewatchin’

We’ve got some serious television viewing to tackle today, so we’re entering Low Content Mode for the duration of the weekend. However, here’s a fun activity with which you can while away the days!

Messrs Biff Tannen and Martian Luthor Kang each drew versions of this Daredevil illustration in anticipation of the release of the Netflix Original Series, how many differences can you find between the two?  Show your work.

Martian Luthor Kang

Like some of my associates here at the Brotherhood of Evil Geeks, I love me some Daredevil. But I know full well that there are plenty of piss-poor Daredevil stories out there, and it would be a shame to see Netflix’s inaugural Marvel series go the way of the Daredevil movie. Now, like an expecting parent I really only want to show to be healthy, but just like those same moms-and- dads-to-be, I naturally have some unspoken desires about what’s to come.  Let them be spoken!

Cover Of The Day 6/6/14

500px-Black_Panther_The_Most_Dangerous_Man_Alive_Vol_1_525

Today’s cover of the day is brought to you by pulp artist extraordinare, Francesco Francavilla. It’s from near the end of the David Liss written Black Panther run where he was watching over Hell’s Kitchen while Daredevil got a grip on himself post Shadowland. It’s a gorgeous composition that really evokes 70’s cinema. I love that Black Panther doesn’t appear at all, highlighting only the major villains of this storyline. Speaking of which, Lady Bullseye is looking an awful lot like Liv Tyler…

Unfortunately, Francavilla isn’t the interior artist for this issue (for that you’ll have to go back earlier in the run) but with a cover this good, I don’t care.

Evil Geek Book Report – Daredevil By Brian Michael Bendis & Alex Maleev Ultimate Collection Vol. 3

953209

After wrapping up Volume 2 of Bendis Daredevil run, I pretty much immediately bought Volume 3 from Amazon. When it finally arrived, it took all my will power not to cancel all my plans for that week, call into work and jump right in. Sadly, I showed some restraint but when I did have a chance to crack it open I dove right in.

(Proceed with caution because after the jump we are officially in spoiler territory)
