    nope. I feel like it was somewhere in volume 2. It's more modern looking

    Volume 2 slipped my mind completely. On the plus side, you can get entire lots of these issues in high-grade for less than cover and they're quite good. The Wizard 1/2 issue is a big surprise when you turn the cover.....

    O Hell yeah...Just discovered this myself, damn its good.

    You are thinking of one of the Quesada covers from the Kevin Smith run, not the classic Miller Elektra saga:

    I thought it was Uncle Ben, Bucky and Jason Todd?

    I forgot that. Was that before or after Miller brought her back from the dead?

    It would have to be before. We're talking (at least I was) about #182, just 14 issues after her introduction, circa 1982.

    I agree. So much tragedy, so many dead girlfriends, so much angst, so many times he has lost his job, been down and out. etc... It's almost comical at this point. Even the more lighthearted DD going on now is nothing new, just a return to his early days. I'm sure this is just setting him up for more grimdark adventures so he will have farther to fall...again.

    But you could say that about most Marvel characters.

    Well, that's the problem, isn't it, with keeping these serials going for 30 or 40+ years. Mostly the writers are just repeating what's gone before, or they give up altogether and make up a bunch of random stuff that may or may not make any sense in relation to the characters involved. It's tough to come up with an interesting variation that still remains true at least to some extent to the original. And that's assuming they're even motivated to try, which they aren't always - often there are other agendas at play, especially with less popular characters. It would take something pretty special to get me to try a Daredevil or FF or Doctor Strange comic now.

    I have to say, that after some 45 years off and on of following this character, after what was donetohim from 500 up to the four part rebirth story, really turned me off! I nearly passed onwaids effort.They turned Old hornheads life into more crap, then it had ever been turned into before. After waid 's run is over, well, I see another bad run, through I REALLY hated the fall from grace bit, with the ugly red and grey arnor, from 319 to 343.This title is either red hot, or piss warm.
