Elektra finally came out with her narrative, saying she was hera for a meeting and that she wanted to apologize for leaving him, although Murdock just insisted that she could not stay .
She admitted that she had last been able to admit to herself that them leaving each other was not destiny but a choice that she had made back at Roscoe Sweeney ‘s home.

Testing Daredevil

“There is always this glorious darkness inside of you, that’s why I took you to Roscoe Sweeney’s, and yes it’s why I loved you, that’s why you loved me too, don’t deny what we have.”
“You think that’s what love is?”
―Elektra and Matt Murdock

While she was pouring herself a drink, Matt Murdock visited Elektra in an apartment not in her mention to ask her about why she took him to Roscoe Sweeney ‘s mansion all those years ago, although Elektra tried to lighten the temper by asking how his date with Karen Page had gone. Elektra explained that it was just for fun but Murdock was offended that she would find the concept of him killing Sweeney as fun .
Elektra tried to change Murdock ‘s own view on the matter by then claiming that she did not push him to murder, but that Murdock had wanted to do it to avenge his forefather, which greatly offended Murdock as he insisted this was merely Elektra ‘s handling once again and told her that she did not have a window into his soul like she seemed to believe. Elektra insisted that this was not the case and went on to tell him that he had brilliant dark inside of him and that was why she took him there, and that was besides why she had loved him and why, at that charge in their lives, he had loved her .
Murdock interrupted to warn Elektra that he could now hear respective armed people arriving on motorbikes and Elektra walked upstairs and began to take off her gown and got dressed. Murdock explained what he heard and asked if Elektra knew who was coming, to which Elektra guessed Yakuza. Elektra explained that she had infiltrated Asano in the Yakatomi Building. Murdock figured Elektra knew what she had been doing, planning everything and manipulating Murdock in the process. As Murdock began to leave, Elektra opened a pocket and revealing it contained his Daredevil ‘s Suit inside. [ 3 ] As the Yakuza entered the construct, Daredevil used the element of storm that they had been granted and jumped down and attacked a man with Elektra following and hitting the moment world, knocking him out. Elektra and Daredevil fought the Yakuza side by side as they soon overpowered a member each and then Elektra fought the only female member entirely. As Elektra promptly got the Yakuza member on the floor, another penis attacked her until she got up, but Elektra quickly knocked her out and kicked another member, bringing him to the reason and breaking his arm, making him scream .
With the numbers of the Yakuza nowadays greatly depleted by Elektra and Daredevil ‘s combine military capability, the concluding extremity charged at Elektra, however, Daredevil knocked him to the establish with one individual solid punch and Elektra landed the last kick on the man she had brought down, leaving all their attackers lying beat and unconscious on the ground around them. Pleased with their results, Elektra pulled her hood down pant and smiling at Murdock, satisfied by their victory and asked if he was athirst, while Murdock remained angry by her misrepresentation and forcing him into another crimson conflict .
The adjacent good morning, Murdock and Elektra got food at a diner and Murdock confronted Elektra about her lies. They discussed how she knew about his Daredevil identity and the Yakuza, with Elektra explaining that she had constantly known everything about him and that he had only made the “ Yakuza “ go into hiding when he had defeated them and Wilson Fisk. Murdock ordered her to leave New York City but Elektra told him that she wanted to bring down the yakuza with him, as partners. Murdock agreed to work with her, a long as she left once they had completed their undertaking. [ 11 ]

“They’ve pinpointed their weak link, they’re smarter than they know.”
“And chances are, they’ve got eyes everywhere else, too.”
“Well, this is going to be more fun than I thought. We have to get him alone somehow.”
―Elektra and Matt Murdock

Elektra sent a car to collect Matt Murdock while he was visiting his node Frank Castle in the hospital. She gave him a suit and explained her design to attend a gala and get a cardinal tease off Stan Gibson which would gain them access to a confidential floor in the Yakatomi Building. Elektra explained that she planned to pickpocket Gibson ‘s key card during the gala, which Murdock scoffed at as security would be tight there following the crusade the former nox, but Elektra only laughed and noted that Murdock was being a bunch less fun .
As they walked in, Murdock said that she caused a lot of attention, turning a draw of heads and raising a set of heart rates, although he noted it was a dishonor she would not be able to enjoy the party. As they were speaking, Hirochi came over to personally welcome Elektra to the party, politely kissing her on the hand before he complimented her appearance. Continuing with their mission, Elektra noted where Gibson was and told Murdock to finish his drink so they now had an excuse to walk over to the bar beside Gibson so Elektra could then attempt to steal the key card from him, therefore Murdock did as Elektra wished and stood by while she prepared to make her move .
however, Murdock stopped Elektra before she could make her go, telling her Gibson was being watched close by security, with Elektra noting that clearly Roxxon Corporation had worked out which of their key cardholders held the biggest risk. Needing to get Gibson alone, Murdock used his blindness to his advantage and, leaving the bemused Elektra where she was, stepped forward and spilled bolshevik wine on Gibson ‘s white suit, forcing him to go to the bathroom to clean up, all while Elektra watched from the legal profession with a smile. [ 11 ]

Locating the ledger

“Invoices for arms, guns, ammunition”
“You read Japanese?”
“Drugs, designer stuff, mostly, and this looks like people, laborers of some sort, sounds like a lot of them, over the past several months, and all from Japan.”
―Elektra and Matt Murdock

once Matt Murdock had good acquired the cardinal batting order from the now unconscious Stan Gibson, both he and Elektra snuck into the thirteenth floor of the construction where Elektra used a device to hack into the security television camera and cover up their movements. Murdock, however, could hear several security guards walking through the hallways sol together they hid through the build to stay out of sight for angstrom long as was possible, using Murdock ‘s abilities to their advantage .
finally, Elektra and Murdock made it into Hirochi ‘s position where they began searching for the Hand Ledger. While Elektra kept a lookout, Murdock used his highly medium ears to crack the safe but to her repugnance, Elektra discovered that the ledger was not inside there and began alternatively desperately searching through Hirochi ‘s desk for it, noting she had been assured by the chaste that the daybook would be in there. Giving up hope that they would find the daybook, Elektra then recommended that they escape now, as if the Yakuza found Gibson in the toilet, they would be discovered identical cursorily .
Before they left, however, Murdock sensed a belittled electric current running through the wall and found a way to open it, revealing a newly secret doorway to another room. Upon seeing the new board, Elektra delightedly exclaimed that she was a genius, apparently ignoring the fact that it was Murdock who had discovered the room. Yet again using Murdock ‘s enhance senses, Elektra found the book promptly, which was filled with all of Roxxon Corporation ‘s notes and most authoritative data, but Murdock, having heard guards were now incoming, took it and forced them to leave after a lockdown .
As the lights went out across the Yakatomi Building, Elektra and Murdock were forced to run and hide as the security arrived on the scene. Knowing they would finally be discovered, Elektra ripped her attire to allow for better motion before Murdock gave her the signal to go. Using the dark and the component of surprise to their advantage, Elektra and Murdock fought the security in the agency, disarming them before they could fire and using their impressive teamwork to bring them all down before they cursorily made their room downstairs to try and make their hasty escape .
Needing a raw tactic to get out of the construction a quickly as they could without being found and arrested, Elektra and Murdock then ducked into an empty office and pretended to be a intoxicated couple looking for privacy to have sexual activity. When security found them, they drew their guns and attempted to arrest the pair, with Elektra playing the intoxicated woman and claiming that Murdock was very rich and could donate money to their organization. Despite finding them there, the security guards believed their new ruse, specially after one security system precaution noticed Murdock ‘s blindness and let them go .
The two went back in the car and read through the script, with Elektra translating the japanese words much to Murdock ‘s surprise. Elektra noted that a lot of the information listed dealings in guns and drugs and even some words on the movement of assorted people, possibly laborers. When she got to the last page, Elektra discovered that she could not translate code in the book, noting whatever was there must be worse than gun running which was not encoded. Arriving at Matt Murdock ‘s Apartment, Elektra jokingly invited him to join her at the lapp time the future day to learn some more. [ 11 ]

Finding a translator

“He must be good, not many professors can afford garish high rise flats and a revolving door of prostitutes.”
“What do you want me to do?”
―Elektra and Philip Cabroni

Elektra called Matt Murdock while he was at work at Nelson and Murdock and asked him to go with her again, this time to translate the daybook before the Hand noticed it was missing, noting that she had found the professor who had encrypted it. Tracking him down, Elektra and Daredevil attacked Professor Philip Cabroni at his home merely after he had sent family two prostitutes. At first, Cabroni simply refused to help as he feared the Hand would kill him, but after Daredevil threw him on a glass window and began punching it, Cabrini then last relented .
He then began to translate it, explaining that he put the letters into a cipher and the characters through a matrix which could be decoded. The code ended up saying that all the hebdomadally shipments took space, and one was that night at 11:00 at Bay Ridge Rail Yard. He gave the total of the boxcar and said that they could now find the gearing they were looking for. When Daredevil questioned what they would find, Cabroni insisted that he need not know. As they left, Daredevil then ordered Cabroni to find well employment while Elektra had told him to kill his decorator as she had hated how his apartment looked. [ 12 ]

“You okay?”
“The best things in life leave you breathless, right?”
“I’m glad you feel that way, ’cause I got something for ya.”
―Daredevil and Elektra

Arriving at the Bay Ridge Rail Yard, Elektra and Daredevil discussed what the Hand could have in the case, with Elektra wanting to make bets until Daredevil noted he and Stick had once found the Hand were transporting the Black Sky. Using his own sharpen senses, Daredevil was able to determine which of the boxcars was filled and which were empty, nothing whatever was inside one car had filled it up adequate to buckle the coach tracks. Elektra decided that they should open it .
The pair then opened the boxcar, entirely to discover that it was actually precisely filled to the brim with dirt, which poured out onto the ground and caused a obscure to rise into the flip. Surprised by what they had found, Elektra questioned if this was possibly a decoy and they had walked into a trap when they opened it, only for Daredevil to pause when he heard incoming footsteps. Realizing that the Yakuza had begun to chase them while armed with guns, Elektra and Daredevil were both forced to hide as they ran on lead of the train and jumped from one boxcar to the next in arrange to get ahead of the Yakuza and set up an ambush of their own for their manque attackers .
Hiding in one of the carriages, Elektra and Daredevil leaped forth and attacked the Yakuza, using the chemical element of storm to avoid their erratic gunfire and disarm them. During the fight, Elektra had her haircloth grabbed by one attacker, but she was able to break his arm and then knock him out before saving Daredevil from one Yakuza member who closely shot him in the back. Elektra concisely collapsed from debilitation, facetiously noting that she believed all of the best things in life left you breathless, but she was forced to get back onto her feet as Daredevil noted there were more soldiers coming to attack them .
With the next curl coming in, Elektra obscure while Daredevil took on the first wave, causing one man to fire his grease-gun and alert the others. Elektra then stormed forward and knocked several of the men to the ground before taking one of their guns, she aimed it at the man ‘s head but found it was already out of ammunition, with Elektra noting it was clearly his lucky day and knocking him out cold. While distracted, Elektra did not see the other man coming for her and slashing her neck with a knife, but she kept fighting and promptly beat him into submission, ignoring the annoyance from the cut .
even with the man barely able to sit up, Elektra continued viciously beating him about to the point of death until Daredevil charged in, kicking over another man and leaving Elektra to allow the world to collapse. With the Yakuza defeated and them now triumphant, Elektra teased Daredevil by asking what had taken him then long before he examined the filthy cut on her shoulder and neck. Although the wind was not dangerous, they then decided to leave their probe there and return to Matt Murdock ‘s apartment where he could stitch up the wound a cautiously as he could. [ 12 ]

continued probe

“I didn’t hear anything about your work that would make me want to tie a noose and test it on my neck. I won’t even mention what I didn’t hear about your girlfriend.”
“I warned you not to interrupt my life.”
“This is not your life.”
―Elektra and Matt Murdock

At his base, Matt Murdock stitched up Elektra ‘s scratch on the back of her neck while they discussed what she would immediately tell people who asked about it. Elektra asked him what he told people about his scars, and he facetiously replied that since he wore suits to his workplace at Nelson and Murdock, it had not been a problem, while besides joking that the women he brought home would be having excessively a lot fun to ask, which made Elektra laugh while he treated her arm .
When Elektra noted some new scars, Murdock explained how he had gotten some from the russian Mafia members and others from a fight against Nobu Yoshioka, with Elektra noting that she besides knew Yoshioka from his reputation in the Hand and pointed out her own scars. Having commented on how they had clearly both been busy since their college days, Murdock asked where she went after she leaving Roscoe Sweeney ‘s house the day they about committed murder. She replied that she went as far aside as she could, finding herself to be alone, saying that Murdock deserved better .
Exhausted from their conflict against the Hand, Elektra lay down and fell asleep on the couch, with Murdock resting on the chair. The future morning, Elektra awoke to find that Murdock was madly pulling his clothes on ampere fast as he could since he had overslept and needed to be at the New York State Supreme Court Building representing the event for the People five. Frank Castle. Seeing that he was clearly besides busy to deal with their investigation at this time, Elektra told Murdock that she would look into the exports before she told him to have a estimable day in woo and let him leave to get to the courthouse .
Elektra kept herself hidden while Murdock talked to Karen Page that night and waited until Page had left before she revealed herself, as Murdock knew Elektra was there listening. He explained to Elektra that even though she did not care, Murdock ‘s new life and Page were crucial to him. Elektra then tells him she looked into Roxxon Corporation ‘s construction sites and found a few sites to investigate. Murdock noted how he knew one of the sites as his client had lived there before Wilson Fisk took it over and had the client murdered, and possibly Fisk had gotten the sphere for the Hand. [ 12 ]

Angering Daredevil

“You don’t get what you want by day, you take it by force at night. This is who you are, Matthew, and don’t fool yourself into thinking it’s anything else.”
“What I do is none of your business. Both halves of my life are mine.”
“Fine, I’ll stay out of your boring legal shit. Now, you wanna fight me? Or you wanna fight the guys who are tearing your city apart?”
―Elektra and Daredevil

Seeking to assist Murdock in his character for Frank Castle, Elektra found the home of Doctor Gregory Tepper and attacked him, tying his hands up and then threatening to kill him if he did not admit in court that Samantha Reyes had forced him to fake the checkup documents in the wake of the Massacre at Central Park which had killed Castle ‘s family. Tepper did as instructed, but noted how he had been threatened meaning his statement was dismissed. That night, Elektra focused back on the master mission .
That night, Daredevil confronted Elektra and furiously told her that because of what she did, that evidence was useless. Elektra told Daredevil that he should stop deluding himself into thinking that he can get what he wants a day by being a lawyer at Nelson and Murdock and be with Karen Page when in truth, he got what he wanted by violence. Daredevil rejected her words, stating that his life sentence is off limits to her. Elektra agreed to stop intervene in his day speculate, before reminding him that they have the Yakuza to be concerned about as they were however planning on tearing all of New York City apart .
together, Elektra and Daredevil went down to the streets to fight the Yakuza guards standing outside of the apartment auction block. Elektra however allowed Daredevil to fight them alone as she took her time catching up to him when Daredevil asked why she did not join the fight, she used his own words against her and noted how he did not want her to get involved, much to Daredevil ‘s annoyance. together they entered the Midland Circle to find nothing but a massive trap in the grate. uncertain of its size, Daredevil grabbed the flashlight, dropping it inside and waited for it to strike the bottom, Elektra questioned if it had so far to which Daredevil noted that it was however falling.

―Elektra and Matt Murdock

As Elektra and Daredevil continued looking down the fix and tried to understand why it was there, they were attacked by members of the Hand. Taking shroud, Daredevil revealed he could not hear the ninja ‘s heartbeats so Elektra recommended he listen out for their swords alternatively. Charging into battle, Elektra grabbed a metallic bar and used that to fight The Hand. When Daredevil was about knocked down the pit, Elektra threw a chain to him and caught him .
As the crusade progressed, Elektra took down a ninja and stole his own sword before attempting to kill him. not wishing for anyone to die, Daredevil called out to stop her and she was attacked by another member who used her distracted to slice across her digest with a poison blade.

Before they could both be killed, however, Stick charged into the crusade and promptly massacred all the remaining few Hand members before turning his attention to Elektra ‘s injure .
Elektra was taken in a car driven by Quinn as Stick along with Daredevil drove promptly back to Matt Murdock ‘s Apartment. Along the room, their car was chased down by several of the Hand ‘s ninja who Stick and Quinn attempted to avoid. Elektra lay on Murdock ‘s lap as she began to bleed out from the wind on her digest, ignoring the assassins who fired arrows at the car and evening tried to jump on the roof and steal her aside. Rather than going straightaway to Metro-General Hospital, Stick insisted that they go to Murdock ‘s apartment to save Elektra ‘s life as they got away from all of the Hand ‘s assassins .
Arriving at his apartment, Stick told Murdock to quickly bring him all of the ingredients which he would use to help Elektra get the toxins out and heal her from the weave she had merely gained during the mission. Elektra was moved from the sofa and then placed in Murdock ‘s bed where Stick poured all the homemade liquid on her wound. Despite Murdock warn of the annoyance it might cause, Stick removed the campaign of the wound and had saved Elektra ‘s animation, causing her some bang-up annoyance while doing thus. Once the operation was ultimately over and Elektra was condom once again, Murdock held her depressed and pray and heard her heartbeat becoming regular, proving she would be okay .
Having left her to sleep and recover, Murdock late greeted Elektra and noted that he had learned she was a member of the Chaste and questioned how much of their relationship had been real and what was preplanned by Stick. Elektra admitted that her merging Murdock at Columbia University was a mission set up by Stick, but she had actually fallen in love with him during this time. due to Murdock now missing court during the Frank Castle trial, Karen Page then visited him to then see Elektra in his bed, which led to Page storming out, assuming Murdock was in a kinship with Elektra.

Rejecting Stick

“Get out before I get nasty.”
“Are you threatening me?”
“You’re damn right, I am. Go.”
“What do you think he’ll say when he finds out what you are? What you’ve always been? Haven’t told him yet have ya?”
―Elektra and Stick

Elektra stood up from her bed and went to talk with Stick, despite him noting that she was intelligibly in excessively much trouble due to the wound she had gained since their last crusade and recommended that she go back to seam. Elektra however refused and rather claimed that she did not want to be with Stick anymore, but with Matt Murdock, despite Stick telling her that he was soft, and had made her soft by letting her guard down, ordering her to go get rear into seam, noting that Elektra could not be with Murdock due to her being a cause of death while Murdock still refused to kill anyone .
Elektra insisted to Stick that she believed she could become a better person if she stayed and that they could inactive fight the Hand without the Chaste ‘s aid. Standing up, Elektra furiously told Stick to leave and threatened him if he ever dared to return. Stick proceeded to slam his own knife into the postpone and collected his things, however, when Stick pondered the think of what if Murdock found out about the killer that Elektra very was, she slapped him, claiming that she could protect herself. Stick then noted she did not know what he had protected her from for years before he then walked out .
When Murdock got back to the Apartment, having good lost Frank Castle ‘s test, he found Elektra all by herself, back in his own bed and attempting to get some sleep. When she was questioned about what had happened to Stick, Elektra told Murdock that she made her choice choosing him over Stick and explained that Stick had left and was apparently never coming back. Elektra noted that Murdock had lost Castle ‘s case arsenic well as probable losing Nelson and Murdock as a leave, but Murdock told her not to worry. They promised to figure out their relationship before Murdock told Elektra to sleep .

“You and I, we’ve seen it. The Hand is very real. And they know we’re onto them. The battle has begun, Matthew. There’s nothing we can do about it now but fight. Look I wish I could tell you that I’m not going to pull my sword, but I will if I have to.”
―Elektra to Matt Murdock

Having been poisoned by the Hand assassin ‘s arrow and was close to death as a result, Elektra treated Matt Murdock ‘s weave, pouring a chemical on the wind which burned through the poison, despite causing Murdock physical pain. While Murdock ‘s torso recovered, Elektra contacted the Chaste members who turned up inside Matt Murdock ‘s Apartment and began cleaning up the blood and repairing the crime scene .
After Murdock woke up, Elektra was asked about the Hand penis and the whereabouts of his body, to which she replied that it had been taken care of. While Elektra insisted that the assassin had tried to kill him and therefore his death was self-defense, Murdock told her that he was a frighten child, while Elektra noted that in motor hotel it would work in her favor. Murdock insisted that they call the New York City Police Department but Elektra noted that the police would never believe what had happened, telling him that the war had begun and that they both nowadays needed to fight in concert against the Hand .
Murdock noted that Elektra ‘s desire to be a dependable person was always outweighed by her desire to kill, noting he had sensed that when they attacked Roscoe Sweeney and noting that her epinephrine had spiked and that she enjoyed killing the child assassin. Elektra then admitted her beginning kill was when she was twelve years erstwhile under Stick ‘s orders and claimed she wanted to know if she could do it.

“The Hand didn’t send me, Stick did.”
―Elektra and Jacques Duchamps

With nothing left for her there, Elektra decided that her best move was to leave New York City and Matt Murdock behind for good. At the airport, Elektra went to a cake and ordered a Tequila or a mescal if they had it. She was then approached by Jacques Duchamps who ordered the same and paid for the bottle for her. Turning to side Elektra, Duchamps began asking where she was going, Elektra claimed that she was getting far away from New York City but did not give a reason as to why .
hush speaking in french to her, Duchamps deduced that Elektra was heading for Courchevel for a skiing vacation, with Elektra apparently confirming that she was just looking for somewhere to shop and ski. Duchamps then continued flirting as he offered to draw her a bath when they arrived. Duchamps then introduced himself, while Elektra gave him a talk through one’s hat name of Louise Badeaux. Duchamps revealed that he knew who Elektra was and that she had been a Chaste assassin, explaining that he was there to kill her and Elektra then confidently finished her drink and welcomed him to try his best .
Elektra and Duchamps began to fight throughout the hanger, proving themselves to be equally matched in skill and each determined to be the victor. At one stage, Elektra managed to stun Duchamps and run across a plane wing, wrapping her legs tight around his pass in an try to chock him out, only for Duchamps to recover and smash Elektra hard against the wing. Seeking to gain the advantage and kill his target, Duchamps brought out a pair of counterpart sai, but Elektra then promptly managed to disarm him, at which point she took them and painfully stabbed him in both the back and his breast .
Taking the blades and twisting them in order to cause her manque assassin as much agony as she could, Elektra told Duchamps that she would not answer to the Hand and wanted nothing to do with their war. Despite being near to dying from his wounds, Duchamps, however, corrected her and revealed that it was not The Hand who sent him, but it was Stick, seeking to assassinate his erstwhile scholar. Mortified by the reveal of her mentor ‘s sudden betrayal, Elektra then ripped out the blades out of Duchamps ‘ chest and back, killing him, and kept his sai, intending to use them to kill Stick. [ 5 ]

“You’re just another old man, jealous of his disciple! You’d rather see me dead than outgrow you, well guess what, when it comes to killing, I’ve always been better.”
“Put up or shut up!”
―Elektra and Stick

Tracking down Stick to one of the Chaste ‘s hideouts, Elektra hide in a cable car as two of his men entered to drive away and warn the members of Elektra ‘s rage. however vitamin a soon as the match stepped into the cable car Elektra stabbed them through the back, with her sai cut straight through their abdomen. She then entered the construct to find her target, unaware that Quinn survived and was using his last moments to find help .
Inside, Elektra found Stick meditating while sharpening his sword as she kicked open the door and prepared to begin the approaching fight against his early scholar, having already heard from Quinn that his own soldier, Jacques Duchamps, had failed with the character assassination try against Elektra. Having found the man she was hunting, Elektra looked at her erstwhile teacher with pure hatred, while Stick then calmly welcomed her to attack him. [ 14 ] Elektra began to hit Stick and kicked him across the room as the two fight with her sais and his sword while Stick still continued to berate and mock his early student, telling Elektra to stop talking and rather fight him .
As the fight progressed Stick struggled to compete with Elektra ‘s focal ratio and secondhand tricks such as headbutt and using nasty spaces to gain the upper handwriting. As their fight briefly paused, Elektra demanded to know when he had tried to kill her, but Stick only said it was a long story and they then went binding to fighting each early. When one of Elektra ‘s sais got stand by which allowed Stick to gain an upper hand and forced his sword towards her throat, but Elektra was able to wrap a cable around his neck and began choking him to see which of them would be killed first in this elongated deathmatch .
Before either of them could kill the other, Daredevil arrived and pulled them apart from each other, telling Elektra that he would not allow her to kill Stick as he stood between the killers. Elektra refused to listen and attempted to get past by slashing her sais at Daredevil ‘s face, angered that despite being raised by Stick he had attempted to have her killed while Stick continued to claim that Elektra was now impossible to control and that he should have killed her when she was a child. Elektra accused Stick of being covetous of her as she had grown into a far superscript killer compared to him, which Stick pushing her to prove her words by continuing their fierce fight .
just as tensions rose to the break point, the three were suddenly attacked by the Hand, who had been sent by Nobu Yoshioka. As Daredevil and Elektra are separated from Stick while fighting their enemies, Elektra killed one extremity by stabbing her sai into his eye while Daredevil subdued them without killing them. But when the lights were briefly cut out, Elektra managed to find a flame at which bespeak she discovered that Stick had been captured and the ninja had scattered, leading to Elektra and Daredevil then charging external to then confront each other about the former fight .
Charging external, Daredevil demanded to know why she was trying to kill Stick and she explained that she was doing it before he could kill her, but she could not explain why or citation that attack against her life which Stick had ordered. Daredevil told her that the Hand must have taken him alive for a reason and that they would torture him until they found what they were looking for. Elektra told him that she was glad Stick would suffer and reminded Daredevil that Stick abandoned him when he was a child, promising that she would kill him if he attempted to stop her from finally killing Stick. [ 1 ]

Tempted by the Hand

“Call me it again and I’ll cut you in half.”
“You are right, Elektra, you’re not a girl anymore. But now, seeing you fight, seeing you with the man who saved your life, I’d know you anywhere. Do you know who we are?”
“You call yourselves the Hand.”
―Elektra and Nobu Yoshioka

Elektra tracked Daredevil barely as he rescued Stick from Hirochi and the Hand. Elektra confronted the two of them, noting that there was a fourth dimension when she very believed that Stick would never betray her but now she felt uninstructed that she had fallen for his lies, she then threw her sai at Stick, but Daredevil caught it mid-air as he reminded her that he had sworn that he would not allow her to kill their former mentor no matter what .
While Daredevil and Elektra argued, Stick, however, revealed to her that The Hand had set up his kidnapping plainly because they had wanted her there, just as Nobu Yoshioka entered and greeted the group with his own modest united states army, calling Elektra an it. Insulted by him, Elektra threatened to cut Yoshioka in half if he dared to call her it again, but Yoshioka merely laughed at this threat, noting this and her crusade skills proved his hypothesis of who she was. When questioned by Yoshioka about who he was and why he was there, Elektra noted that Yoshioka was the Hand, serving a mysterious warrior .
Yoshioka, however, insisted that this warrior was not a myth, and to her shock, he then revealed that Elektra was the Black Sky whom the Hand served and offered her his sword as he and all of the Hand soldiers bowed before her. Elektra wondered if this is who she was meant to be and realized it explained much of her life while serving the Chaste, including why Stick killed Star to protect her. Seeking to save her, Daredevil told her if she was going to join The Hand as she had become tempted to do, then she would have to kill him arsenic well, allowing her to push Yoshioka ‘s sword against his throat .
Unwilling to kill the man she had loved, Elektra blink of an eye quickened, which Daredevil took as a opportunity to disarm her as he held the sword against her throat while Yoshioka ‘s men surrounded them. Daredevil gave Elektra the choice to prove Yoshioka right by killing them both or prove him wrong by saving Stick ‘s life. Telling Daredevil that he never knew when to stop, Elektra rather sided with Daredevil and Stick and aided them against The Hand, pulling Stick to safety once he had used the Specialist ‘s knives to then defend himself, while Daredevil battled against all of the ninja and Yoshioka .
Elektra got Stick out aside from the fight and towards base hit, killing some members of the Hand as they went. Having gotten to a condom outdistance by dragging the wounded Stick with her, they then took a moment to rest in a hallway and Stick admitted that he still wanted to kill Elektra by sending Jacques Duchamps to assassinate her. Stick claimed that Murdock had not come to save him after the Hand, but he had gone to save Elektra from herself, knowing that if she had killed him, she would never be able to come back from that and they would never be able to be a adept person as she desired. [ 1 ]

Reassured by Matt Murdock

“True or not, the legend says that once they have the Black Sky they’ll be capable of anything. It’s not about what I’m willing to do. Even in a cage, I’ll be their false idol. They will do terrible things in my name because they think the Black Sky will make them invincible.”
―Elektra to Matt Murdock

While they took Stick back into Matt Murdock ‘s apartment where he was tied up to ensure he would not try and escape, Elektra stood on top of a construction overlooking New York City and began contemplating committing suicide until Matt Murdock came up to talk to her about Stick and the Black Sky. Murdock had tried to reassure Elektra that whatever she was feeling now would pass and asked her to consider the possibility that there was no such thing as the Black Sky as he then claimed it was nothing but mysticism and nonsense .
Elektra noted how she had always been trained by the Chaste to kill the Black Sky and was told she had a endow by Stick, but Murdock then commented that he had been given the like speech. Elektra had hush however explained to Murdock that once the Hand had restraint of the Black Sky, they would be able to do anything, and she would be their assumed idol even if she was locked in a cage, although Murdock had insisted that they would not be able to claim her as Elektra did not belong to anybody, while noting that she was stronger and more mighty had anybody the Hand had previously encountered .
While Elektra explained that the Hand had been around longer than most countries had, Murdock insisted that they had plainly hidden in the shadows like the Chaste had and allowed their caption to grow, promising they could bring them down in concert. Elektra questioned why Murdock would still trust her after everything, before noting how caption said that Nobu Yoshioka had lived three lifetimes and taking him down was their best chance of destroying the Hand. together they agreed to capture Yoshioka, as Murdock insisted that killing him would make him a martyr, which Elektra finally agreed with.

“Biggest mistake of your life, child.”
“Maybe. But it’ll be my mistake because this is my life.”
―Elektra and Stick

Seeking to prepare themselves for the final conflict as best they could, both Elektra and Daredevil had together then went straight to Melvin Potter ‘s Workshop where Elektra was fitted with a new undifferentiated which would provide her with supernumerary protection, although Melvin Potter had hush continued to complain that the uniforms had been designed specifically to keep Betsy Beatty safe and he did not want to just equitable give them away to anybody, although Elektra promised that Potter would distillery get them back finally without a single rub .
As Elektra watched while examining some of Potter ‘s early designs, Daredevil was given a prototype truncheon club which Potter had made for him. Seeing that the truncheon cabaret was an fabulously utilitarian weapon which Daredevil could use for either close quarter combat or as a wrestling hook, Elektra began to complain that she wanted one arsenic well, while Daredevil told Potter to just ignore her complaints while Potter had explained that he lone had time to make one. Elektra then watched while Potter noted that the people of Hell ‘s Kitchen inactive understood and appreciated what Daredevil was doing to keep them dependable .
Back inside of Matt Murdock ‘s Apartment, Elektra had then given the restrained Stick a sandwich and informed him that the children he had trained to be warriors for the Chaste were now going to fight his wars for him their way and not his, questioning how this made him feel. Stick informed Elektra that this would prove to be the biggest error of her biography, although Elektra had still insisted that if this was true then it would simply have to be her mistake to make, claiming that this was her life to live and that Stick no long had operate over her anymore, which had appeared to greatly annoy Stick .
They were interrupted once Daredevil returned and told Elektra it was time for them to go, however fair as they prepared to go, Daredevil got a call call from Foggy Nelson which he answered. As Elektra listened, Daredevil was informed that Brett Mahoney had merely been apparently attacked by the Hand as Nelson requested that Daredevil go and investigate. Leaving Elektra behind, Daredevil then went to speak with Mahoney and discovered out that The Hand kidnapped respective people, including Karen Page and Turk Barrett who Daredevil had previously encountered, to use as tease to then capture him .
Elektra soon found Daredevil on the roof of his build, while he was urgently attempting to use his enhanced earshot to listen out for the Hand ‘s location all across New York City but was struggling to focus. Elektra noted that the Hand was using the hostages as bait for him, but Daredevil insisted that he could not abandon them to be killed by Nobu Yoshioka. Seeing that he was however struggling, Elektra told Daredevil to slow his breathe and focus, promising that he would find them, although Daredevil claimed there was besides much noise for him to concentrate on hearing a specific voice in the city .
Taking ahold of his hand, Elektra recommended that Daredevil tune out everything that was not all-important, including all the New York City Police Department sirens, and focus on all the people he needed to find. Through his advice, Daredevil then located the Hand as he and Elektra then furiously ran to their location until they got to Yoshioka ‘s location, as Daredevil noted there were at least twenty dollar bill hostages and an integral army of Yoshioka ‘s soldiers. Elektra insisted that they focus on bringing down Yoshioka, despite Daredevil wanting to rescue the hostages, but Daredevil refused to leave any of them behind. [ 15 ]

Rescuing Hostages

“I’m the Black Sky, Matthew.”
“Yeah, and I’m the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. The airport’s just a cab fare away. All we gotta do is survive whatever’s waiting for us behind that door.”
“Let’s get out of here.”
―Elektra and Daredevil

While Elektra disagreed with Daredevil ‘s design to focus on rescuing all the hostages rather than going to Nobu Yoshioka and defeating him, she hush came to his aid regardless once Karen Page and the others were on their way out and saved Daredevil as he was surrounded by the Hand ninja. Elektra entered and used her match sai to kill these ninjas by stabbing them both through the back, claim that she had just gotten bored of not being involved with the fight .
Elektra then covered her grimace with her mask as more Hand soldiers charged into the room and attacked them, with Elektra and Daredevil once again fighting side by side to defeat their enemies. During the clash, several Hand soldiers smashed their way through a rampart and grabbed Elektra from behind, still seeking to capture her, however, Daredevil came to her help and knocked them out. As Daredevil heard more soldiers coming their way, Elektra and Daredevil then run up the stairs with Hand members following them, knowing the alone direction out would be for them to go upstairs away from all soldiers .
together they locked themselves in a room as Daredevil informed Elektra that there were hush a fortune more soldiers coming their way to them, as Elektra noted that it seemed they were both about to die. Elektra and Daredevil agreed to make their last stand on the roof of the build as Elektra noted that even if they managed to survive, they may never see each other again. Hearing this, Daredevil then removed his Helmet and asked if they run together for the rest of their lives, expressing his desire to spend the rest of his life with her as he claimed Elektra was the only one who gave him animation .
Elektra noted how Matt Murdock had always hidden inside himself and had never let anybody in, to which he noted that he had left her in. Elektra even insisted that if they ran, then Yoshioka and the Hand would still search for them and would finally catch them both, to which Murdock claimed they would keep run, change identities, good angstrom long as they were together. Elektra agreed and suggested that they move to London or Madrid together to begin their new lives with each other, although she noted that Murdock always loved New York City, he insisted that he would constantly love her even more.

“They have nothing now, I took it all away.”
“It’s okay, it’s okay, try not to talk.”
“I know now, what it feels, to be good.”
―Elektra and Daredevil

As Elektra and Daredevil then run out to the ceiling of the build, they had stood slope by side to face down Nobu Yoshioka with his united states army of members of The Hand. Having dodged respective arrows fired at them, they were then confronted by Yoshioka himself who challenged them to a final confrontation, with Yoshioka armed with his own Kyoketsu-Shoge which he swung around his head while greeting the pair, with his united states army hush ready to fight.

“No Stick, I took one of yours.”
“Elektra?”
“The vessel you knew is gone, only the Black Sky lives.”
―Stick and Alexandra Reid

With the chaste now about wholly wiped out, the Hand were last able to capture Stick, who was handcuffed onto a steel pole while he was being questioned by Alexandra Reid. While waiting for her orders, Elektra looked at her reflection in the mirror, inactive unable to remember the person she had been before being resurrected by the Hand. finally Sowande came out and informed Elektra that Reid was ready for her to step in and assist with the question of her former mentor Stick as Elektra walked aside from the mirror .
Elektra waited in the shadows while Reid questioned Stick, mocking him over the Chaste ‘s frustration and asking about Iron Fist, although Stick insisted that he did not know where he presently was, noting that Rand would continue to destroy the Hand. As Stick had still continued to mock Reid and refused to answer her questions, Elektra came out of the shadows and held her blade up to his throat, unnerving Stick, as he had last hear that Elektra had been murdered by Nobu Yoshioka, although Elektra did not listen to a bible Stick had said to her as he tried to get through to the person she was .
Reid continued to demand to know where Rand was, while Elektra held her blade to Stick ‘s throat, however, Stick insisted that he would preferably die than bridge player Rand over to them. Noting that despite having spent his own life serving K’un-Lun, Stick intelligibly did not actually know what-what the Iron Fist ‘s purpose was, Stick commented that he knew what he himself was before he then head-butted Elektra and stole her sword, using it to cut off his own pass to free himself before escaping from the Hand ‘s warehouse during the confusion. Elektra and Reid then realized Stick had escaped through the vent. [ 6 ]

“Oh, shit.”
“Oh, whose that?”
“Bad news, we gotta go.”
―Jessica Jones and Luke Cage

Having been stationed at Midland Circle to act as back up, Elektra was finally summoned by Alexandra Reid to enter into the fight which had broken out against Luke Cage and Iron Fist after several henchmen are devour at the Midland Circle Headquarters. While Reid looked over all of her henchmen who had already been defeated by Cage and Rand, she told Elektra that she knew what she needed to do, as Elektra stepped out and challenged her enemies who were trying to escape .
Elektra was soon recognized by Jessica Jones, who remembered her when Elektra had attacked John Raymond and recommended that they make their escape equitable as more of Reid ‘s soldiers had appeared, forcing the team to continue fighting in order to get away. While the others fought Reid ‘s soldiers, Elektra soon engaged in a one-on-one contend with Matt Murdock through the hallways of Midland Circle, soon finding Murdock to be a unmanageable adversary as he was able to counter many of her moves until Elektra landed a knock-down punch which sent Murdock flying through a looking glass doorway into another office .
Elektra still continued to fight against Murdock, furiously slashing at him armed with her Wakizashi blade. The two fought furiously ; with Murdock kicking over some computer screens while Elektra slashed through the walls as they desperately attempted to gain the upper hand during their crusade. Despite Murdock getting potent hits in an about cause Elektra to lose balance several times, Elektra gained the upper berth hand when she split her Wakizashi blades which confused Murdock, allowing Elektra to swing at him before kicking him into a bookcase which had knocked all of the wind out of Murdock .
While Elektra swung her blades and prepared to execute Murdock however, he momentarily paused, sensing something familiar about Elektra. When Murdock spoke her name and realized he had been fighting against the woman he had loved, she hesitated for a moment and stared at him, concisely recognizing the man she had loved vitamin a well. Before she could strike him down however as her obligation to the Hand won over, her sword was shattered by a brawny strike from the Iron Fist, projecting her through a wall and ending the fight while Murdock and the rest of the vigilantes made their get off. [ 6 ]

Learning of her Past

“I’d erase all the marks of your past if I could. Your life is new. But sadly, your body is not.”
“This is how I died?”
“Don’t worry about that. All that matters now is how you live.”
“The Black Sky. This is all I am?”
―Alexandra Reid and Elektra

once back at the Midland Circle, Elektra stood before a mirror, contemplating a scar on her abdomen which she knew had caused her end before being resurrected by the Hand and turned into their greatest warrior. While inactive looking at her reflection, Elektra was joined by Alexandra Reid who noted that she wished she could erase all the scars from her past but that she could not, while besides claiming that while Elektra ‘s life was new, her body was not .
Elektra questioned if these scars were how she died, as Reid insisted that it did not matter how she had died, but how she lived from now onwards as the Black Sky, although Elektra expressed her hope to know more about her own former life. Reid then informed her that the previous person in her body had been lost, and led astray by men in her life like Stick and Matt Murdock before she had died in the struggle against Nobu Yoshioka. Reid insisted that through her life and death, Elektra had landed right where she belonged, with her and the Hand, and that she was the Black Sky who had served the Hand. [ 7 ]

Threatened by the Hand

“Perhaps you’d be more effective on the battlefield if you killed your enemies, rather than letting them escape. Alexandra insisted we use the last of our resources on you. The ultimate weapon of the Hand. But after your recent failure well, I can’t help but ask myself if you are a weapon at all.”
―Sowande to Elektra

While she was exploring the Headquarters of the Hand, Elektra then began examining several of the weapons which were immediately on expose there, taking a particularly close front at the pair of match sai that were there. While looking at the Sai, Elektra considered the possibility that these may have in fact been the actual weapons which had been used by Nobu Yoshioka to kill her, which resulted in her resurrection and becoming the Hand ‘s greatest warrior, although she silent could not remember the claim details of this .
While looking at the Sai, Elektra sensed person coming behind her and found Sowande entered the room with two Hand warriors. Sowande immediately insulted Elektra by reminding her of how she had let the Defenders scat during their previous confrontation, while Sowande noted that Alexandra Reid had forced them to use the last of the Resurrection Elixir on her and he questioned if it had been a worthwhile decision. Annoyed, Elektra proceeded to well subdue Sowande ‘s men, even managing to break one of their backs before then looking Sowande straight into the eyes and walking out. [ 7 ]

“This is not who you are. I know you. You died. I held you in my arms. I buried you, Elektra! Elektra. That’s your name.”
―Matt Murdock to Elektra

finally, all the Defenders were successfully tracked down as they had been attempting to hide out inside of the Royal Dragon and had been rejoined by Stick. As their team was first gear greeted by Alexandra Reid, she had attempted to end their conflict in a peaceful manner by requesting that the Iron Fist agree to join the Hand ‘s side, despite the strong objections of Stick and the others. however, since all Reid ‘s attempts to persuade Rand to the side of the Hand, Elektra was ordered to “ serve biography itself, ” ready to attack the Defenders along with Stick, as Elektra then proceeded to smash down the door with a individual potent kick .
Reid then calmly stepped away while all the Defenders had prepared themselves for the conflict against the Hand ‘s greatest warrior, while Elektra held onto her Wakizashi blade and merely awaited the ideal consequence to begin the contend. however, just before she was able to start the competitiveness, Jessica Jones returned to the Royal Dragon and proceeded to launch an SUV through the restaurant, knocking Elektra down onto the floor, while Jones stood alongside all of her new teammates while Elektra had gotten bet on to her feet, and once again disposed herself to begin the battle against the Defenders and destroy them all. [ 7 ] As the crusade began, Elektra fought against all the five singlehandedly, able to hold her own until she was joined by Murakami, who dropped down from the ceiling window and had then begun to furiously fight against both Danny Rand and Matt Murdock while Elektra focused on fighting against both Jones and Luke Cage on her own. The contend was briefly dispersed, as Sowande and Madame Gao ‘s soldiers then entered the struggle, guns blazing through the build up. Elektra kneeled until the fire stopped, as Gao and Sowande ‘s soldiers then rushed into the picture, leaving all the Defenders completely surrounded .
During a brief draw against all of Gao and Sowande ‘s own forces, Elektra watched on while Stick attempted to reassure the Defenders that they would survive if they continued to work together, however, Murdock chose to ignore this advice and alternatively charged straight towards Elektra, pushing her away from their crusade to confront her in person. While everyone else still continued to furiously fight for their lives, Elektra was violently pinned against the rampart by Murdock who told her he only wanted to talk. Despite his efforts to remain passive towards her, Elektra had still pushed to ultimately defeat and kill him .
The competitiveness moved in the binding of the restaurant ; as Elektra was quick to strike him down, she heard Murdock say the name Elektra again and he confessed to holding her in his arms as she died. She then paused, eyes staring at Murdock, as he told her this was her list. When he gradually became closer to her, the two were interrupted by Murakami, visibly frustrated as he demanded Elektra that she had not struck down their foe. Elektra, finally animating, directed her attack on Murakami, knocking him to the english unconscious before disappearing from the scene without actually killing Murdock. [ 8 ]

Waking Relevation

“You had no choice in returning from death. I realize that. But I hope you understand that this is the life you were chosen to lead, as a weapon against our enemies. If you do not fulfill that role you’re of no use to the Hand. Or to me.”
―Alexandra Reid to Elektra

Having returned back into her board in the Headquarters, Elektra had carefully sharpened her sword on the deck, before then overhearing the sound of Alexandra Reid entering the room. In the blink of an eye, Elektra armed herself and stood tall, wielding her sword underneath Reid ‘s throat, freezing in the moment before she would have sliced open Reid ‘s throat. Reid praised her for her endowment, finally taking away Elektra ‘s sword once Elektra had then commented that Reid had trained her well in arrange to become such a formidable warrior .
There, Elektra heard the report that Reid once had a daughter during her first that had died before the pilgrimage to K’un-Lun and before she had formed the Hand. Reid explained that she had learned she prefer immortality and the destiny of raising the Black Sky. While Elektra expressed her gratitude to Reid, she was then informed that she was living the animation that she was constantly meant to lead and that if she was ineffective to eliminate the targets she is assigned, she would be no use to the Hand as Reid threatened her liveliness with Elektra ‘s own blade, as Elektra vowed that she understood what Reid intend .
Having agreed on the position moving forward, Elektra and Reid had then embraced one another closely, however, they were both then by chance interrupted when Murakami intruded, asking to speak to Reid. Murakami had then informed them that Sowande had been taken prisoner by the Defenders following his own unsuccessful battle against Luke Cage. Reid had remained calm, however, promising that Sowande would return, and that Bakuto was besides on his way back. once Reid left the room, Elektra glared at him for a while, with Reid telling Murakami that she would continue to speak with him later .
Despite Reid ‘s words of comfort, Elektra still found herself becoming highly confused and determined to learn more about her previous life before being resurrected. To this end, Elektra soon disappeared from Hand ‘s Penthouse and disappeared into New York City in her bay to find answers regarding who she actually was, as she soon found herself standing atop Matt Murdock ‘s Apartment, somewhere which she knew held a connection to her past life and had remembered the localization of. She intruded inside, gradually remembering everything in the apartment from when she had last been aim at heart of there .
Having made it into the apartment, Elektra then began lento walking around the queerly familiar environment, while Elektra had found herself remembering many of the items inside the apartment, as she looked round and softly touched the furniture, taking particular notice of a green chest which was kept in the side of the room. finally, Elektra wandered inside the bedroom, recalling it as the bed she had about died on when wounded by the Hand before being saved by Daredevil and Stick who had cared for her injury together, giving her strong memories of both severe trouble and love at the same time .
Feeling the common sense of comfort with the room, Elektra sat her sword on the nightstand and rest in the layer, calmed by the sense of conversant that came from the bed of the man she had once been loved by. [ 8 ] Waking from the memory of being with Matt Murdock some time ago before her death at the hands of Nobu Yoshioka. Elektra wandered to a green chest of drawers, where she discovered the initial body suit of Daredevil and his billy clubhouse and a bible in braille with a bookmark on a verse — Revelation 21:4, which had actually come from Sacred Saints Cemetery, she took this with her before leaving his apartment. [ 18 ]

Alexandra Reid ‘s confession

“If we don’t find more of this substance, we’ll both die?”
“Yes. You need to make sure that doesn’t happen. You are the Black Sky. And when this is over, you and I, the two of us will serve life.”
―Elektra and Alexandra Reid

Believing there was something significant about this location, Elektra then traveled to Sacred Saints Cemetery where she finally found her own grave. While she wiped the dead flowers off the gravestone, Elektra was joined by Alexandra Reid who explained that while the person who had been buried was Elektra Natchios, she was not who she was now, while promising that she was much more than Natchios had ever been. Reid claimed that it was Daredevil who had allowed Natchios to die .
Reid claimed that Daredevil would attempt to deceive her and turn her away from the Hand if were to battle each early again, although Elektra insisted this would not happen. Reid had then confessed to Elektra that she was dying, which confused Elektra as she noted that the Hand should be able to live constantly, however, Reid confirmed it was true, noting that her own body was now shutting down from the inside. Reid noted that she needed the Resurrection Elixir which had been discovered in K’un-Lun which could return her to biography and allow her to continue living her own life for thousands of more years .
Reid then confessed that the Hand had used the last of their elixir to return Elektra bet on from the dead, while Elektra questioned why she would do this. Reid then told Elektra that she had always believed the Black Sky would be their salvation, and that upon seeing her, Reid had known that she was plainly tire of being alone within this earth, despite the objections of Murakami and Madame Gao. Elektra confirmed that if they did not find the Elixir they would both die, as Reid insisted they needed to live on constantly so they could continue to serve life itself, as they embraced by Elektra ‘s early scratch. [ 18 ]

“You can’t have him, girl.”
“You no longer get to tell me what to do.”
―Stick and Elektra

Elektra soon managed to locate the Iron Fist inside an abandoned construct where he was being kept locked up by the Defenders in an attack to keep him condom from the Hand as they had barely recently learned from Sowande that the Iron Fist was what the Hand needed. Elektra arrived just as Stick had decided to execute Iron Fist to stop the Hand from taking him and completing their goals, however before Stick was able to strike him down, Elektra had charged in and blocked the blade and contend Stick, noting that Stick could no long tell him what to do .
The two furiously clashed swords and had found themselves evenly matched throughout much of the fight, with Stick proving himself to however be a highly skilled warrior tied after cutting off one of his own hands. Dodging away from his blows, Elektra managed to impale Stick through his leg, however, he responded by swinging his blade and stopping mere inches from Elektra ‘s throat. The pair then briefly paused their battle as Elektra realized that her erstwhile master was inactive diffident if he actually wanted to kill her or not before Elektra and Stick had then continued their angry sword fight to the death .
While their fight had reached its end, Elektra had gained the upper bridge player and stopped Stick from killing Danny Rand once again, before kicking him down to his back as Elektra pinned Stick onto the floor. With Stick disarmed and defeated, Elektra prepared to end the fight only for Matt Murdock to charge into the room and plead with her not to kill Stick. Smiling, Elektra greeted Murdock claiming she was happy to see him once again, before Elektra then viciously plunged her sword straight through Stick ‘s chest, last killing him, before she then engaged Murdock and Jessica Jones in another catch .
Elektra well defeated the emotional Murdock by kicking him in the thorax and sending him flying backward, before then fighting against Jones, who managed to block her sword strikes, but Elektra was hush able to gain the upper berth hand and kicked her across the room. While Elektra manage with the two heroes, Luke Cage had finally woken up from unconsciousness from being poisoned by Stick, and joined the competitiveness, blocking her sword strikes with his unbreakable skin. however, Cage was finally overpowered and then defeated by Elektra, who knocked him out with a hard kick to the capitulum .
With all of the Defenders immediately unconscious, and Stick lying dead in a pool of his own rake, Elektra overlooked her influence and prepared to continue her own mission for the Hand. Directing her attention back to Rand who had besides lost consciousness due to being exposed to the knock out accelerator Stick had used to take out Cage, Elektra had cut the ropes that bound him, carried his body over her shoulder before she took a concluding spirit back at the unconscious Murdock lie across the room. With her mission now finally completed, Elektra had then leaped through a window and made her escape from the build .
Having gotten away before the New York City Police Department had arrived and discovered the scene Elektra then brought Rand ‘s hush unconscious mind body back to Alexandra Reid, finding her during Reid ‘s dinnertime as she was presently being confronted by Murakami who had good challenged her to a fight to the death having lost religion in both Elektra and Reid. As Elektra dropped the unconscious Rand at Reid ‘s feet, Reid looked at the surprised Murakami and sedately noted that if Murakami had known her at all, he would know that she always won her fights, as Elektra and Reid had both smiled at one another. [ 18 ]

Taking Over the Hand

“Well, this may come as a bit of a shock, but I don’t care about the Hand. I care about the substance. Because from now on, nothing will stand in my way. Not even death.”
―Elektra to Bakuto

With all the reminding members of the Hand having been regrouped back at the Midland Circle, Elektra joined them, but not before taking a look at a copulate of twin sai which were on display, as Elektra secretly took the twin sai with her to the merging. As their meet then took set, Elektra then stood equitable behind Alexandra Reid as they then presented the Iron Fist and greeted him to the Hand, telling the still defiant Danny Rand that despite everything he had done, he would still serve the Hand .
once the Iron Fist being taken away, she witnessed the leaders argue over the overexploitation of their express amounts of Resurrection Elixir which were remaining equally well as fearing when the inevitable visit from the Defenders would happen who would undoubtedly come to rescue Rand, questioning what should be done adjacent. An upset Reid scolded them, tasking Elektra to kill Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, before demanding that Daredevil besides be killed, although noting she did not know Daredevil ‘s true identity. Elektra first appeared to obey as she turned around and then left the room immediately following this .
alternatively of obeying her order to hunt down and slaughter all of the remaining members of the Defenders however, Elektra had alternatively grabbed the twin sai and furiously plunged them straight through Reid ‘s torso just as Reid was giving her address to the early leaders of the Hand, informing her that Daredevil ‘s name was Matthew. As blood poured out of the assailable scent and dripped from her talk, Reid plainly looked back at her beloved Black Sky in arrant horror and complete confusion before Elektra proceeded to rip the sai out from her second as Reid then collapsed and bled out on the floor .
Elektra ‘s attention then turned to the remaining fingers of the Hand who stood in complete shock absorber, proclaiming her own adoptive identify Elektra Natchios and besides that from this point onwards, they would now all be obeying her orders rather of Reid ‘s. As Reid ‘s body lay bleeding on the floor, Elektra ensured that she could not be brought back to liveliness as she then drew her Wakizashi and cut off Reid ‘s head. Having beheading the drawing card of the Hand, Elektra calmly wiped away the blood from her face and asked the remaining leaders of the Hand if there were any questions regarding what had just happened. [ 18 ] once Reid ‘s cadaver was removed, Elektra wiped her blood from her face while the early members of the Hand looked on in horror until ultimately Bakuto spoke up and told Elektra that this was not how the Hand conducted their business, to which Elektra insisted that it was now. Clearly mortified after Reid ‘s death, Murakami then told Elektra that regardless of her being the Black Sky, there were still three of them and only one of her, while Elektra questioned if Murakami was challenging her, remaining highly confident that she would distillery come out triumphant against them if they dared to attempt to kill her .
While Bakuto noted that they would do whatever they needed to in order to protect the Hand, he noted that this was not their first coup d’etat, although Elektra noted that it was the first gear time they no longer than the Resurrection Elixir, questioning if they all would be willing to take that gamble. Seeking to make peace, Madame Gao then informed Elektra about how the Hand was a ball-shaped organization, noting how Reid built relationships with crime lords such as Wilson Fisk angstrom well as corporate partners like Roxxon, which Elektra then merely scoffed at while Gao questioned how they would explain Reid ‘s death .
clearly uninterested in this, Elektra told Gao that there would be no need for any explanation about Reid ‘s end, although Gao insisted that these relationships allowed their business to continue without being challenged. however, when Gao claimed that this work gave them power, Elektra scoffed and mocked their sense of ability, as she noted how they were living metro in Midland Circle. As she said this, however, Bakuto reminded Elektra how she no longer existed, having been killed by Nobu Yoshioka during her former biography, until Reid had returned her to live with their final drops of Elixir .
Elektra, however, had simply stepped up to Bakuto as he continued to claim that regardless of what Elektra had done, what mattered was how she did it. Bakuto then explained to Elektra how the Hand had survived for so many centuries because of their own leadership and survival, to which Elektra then derisively claimed that she did not actually care about the Hand. Elektra told the Hand leaders that all she cared about was last regaining the Elixir so that she could live forever, promising that from this point onwards nothing would stand in her way, not even end which distinctly unnerved all the others. [ 9 ]

Rematch Against Rand

As the two rode down an elevator below Midland Circle, Elektra pushed a restrain Danny Rand to the caverns, explaining the blockage that held an component for the Resurrection Elixir. Though Rand protested that he would not assist the Hand in breaking through, she brought up how they chose their respective paths in life, choosing to run from their destiny while she unstrapped him. They finally fought, however, with Rand enraged by Elektra ‘s words. Throughout the battle, Elektra continued to taunt her opposition. Rand summoned his Iron Fist and pushed forward into the fight ; Elektra, with her sai, gripped his fist and pulled him into the wall, smashing the blockage down and revealing the draco bones that lie below New York City. [ 9 ]

“You’ve always wanted to find light in me, look where it brought you.”
“There is goodness in you. I know, ’cause I felt it.”
“I don’t care about good or bad. Truth is, I’ve never felt more whole, more alive, than right now.”
“Then let’s live. We can still make it out of here.”
―Elektra and Matt Murdock

Elektra discussed with Madame Gao about the dragon bones, before noticing that the elevator was moving. She realized that her enemies were coming, so she ordered the members of the Hand to prepare for the crusade. She waited in battlefront of the elevator until it arrived and was surprised when she only saw Jessica Jones. however, this was precisely a distraction, as Daredevil and Luke Cage came from behind the elevator and started attacking the handwriting. Elektra largely fought against Daredevil but was ultimately defeated and pushed aside from the battle by the blind hero .
After all the members of the Hand were killed or subdued, the Defenders went binding to the elevator, except for Daredevil, who chose to stay behind and talk to Elektra, knowing that the build up was about to explode. however, Elektra attacked him again, and the two fight until they became exhausted. Matt tried to convince Elektra that she was not the Black Sky and that the Hand did n’t create her. She admitted that she knew her past liveliness and who she was, and that she accepted it. Murdock then told her that he could feel that she still loved him, but Elektra denied and attempted to choke him .
however, she let him go with a joke, saying that that was what they got for thinking they can ever be together. Murdock told her that they were together at that consequence and that they could always be. Elektra than apologized to Murdock for all the times she had hurt him. As the turkey set off and the construction began to collapse, Murdock told Elektra that they were going to die, but she replied that they were still living. The two kissed, as the cave collapsed, burying them animated. [ 19 ] Although Murdock survived and got out from the ruins of Midland Circle, Elektra ‘s body was never found. [ 20 ]

personality

“If this is who you truly are, why haven’t you killed me yet? You’ve had your chance.”
“I’ve had many.”
“If I truly mean nothing to you, if there’s truly no light inside of you, why not just do it?”
“Because the game is fun.”
―Matt Murdock and Elektra

Elektra is shown to be a very confident woman, in both her skills and looks, once telling Matt Murdock that every man she ‘s ever met has wanted to sleep with her. This has led her to be arrogant at times as she believed that she was superior to Stick and that the only cause he attempted to have her killed by sending his own assassin Jacques Duchamps after her was because of his jealousy of his schoolchild becoming a better killer whale than he was. however, Elektra states that she is alone in the world and believes that Murdock and she are kin spirits as she viewed him as the alone person who understands her for who she is deep down. She was profoundly upset when he refused to kill Roscoe Sweeney, claiming “ I thought you understood me. ” Elektra besides had a habit of becoming bored quite easily which Murdock picks up on their first meet. frankincense, she has developed a fun-loving, free-wheeling and wildly irregular personality and is more than capable of having a good time throughout her campaign with Daredevil, enjoying both the fight and the forcible challenge that came with it.

Being raised by the Chaste for most of her biography, Elektra learned to be the arrant assassin and killer. She can be coldblooded to her enemies and enjoyed killing them ; the first time she did was when she was twelve and that was in self-defense but admits that she liked doing sol. She does n’t possess Murdock ‘s moral circumnavigate but at the same time seems to respect him for his refusal to kill whereas Stick would degrade him for it. Elektra tends to think of her goals as first and farthermost importance with little sympathy to others and little care or tied realization over breaking the police. For exemplar, to assist in Murdock ‘s case she forces a confession out of Doctor Gregory Tepper but her involvement made his confession useless entirely and after killing a Hand assassin she believed that it being in self-defense would absolve her over any punishment which Murdock corrected. unbeknown to Elektra herself, she was in actuality the Black Sky, a fabulous deity within the arrange of the Hand who is worshiped by its followers. Though she herself had known to have dark in her heart ; this side was violent, volatile and the main reason why she was said to enjoy killing indeed much. When Nobu Yoshioka finally revealed the truth, Elektra accepted it about immediately as she seemed to feel that it was rightfully who she was because her mentor always told her to hide who she was after being adopted to a affluent family, but it was ultimately Daredevil ‘s words that no one could tell her who she was that put her down the way of estimable. In the end, Elektra was a much more altruistic and brave womanhood who was will to sacrifice herself for the man she loved and assuring that the Hand would never be in possession of the Black Sky, allowing Yoshioka shot transfix her with her own twin sai during the conflict. She died claiming she knew what it meant to be good. however, Elektra was still more concerned about her goals than anything else as she was uncoerced to ignore the hostages that the Hand had kidnapped but she ultimately decided to help Daredevil save them .

    • Enhanced Durability: 250?cb=20210219153132 Elektra has shown to be incredibly resilient to injury, especially during her fights with the Defenders.

Behind the Scenes

  • Élodie Yung described Elektra as “kind of a sociopath. This world is a game for her. It’s like a chess game, and what motivates her is what she wants. She’ll use anything she needs to use to get to her goal, and if she needs to kill people, she would.” She added that Elektra is neither good nor bad, but a “person with different traits” and layers.[21]
  • Douglas Petrie called Elektra “the best bad girlfriend you can possibly have. She does everything wrong and attractive, she’s [Matt’s] id, the wild side. Matt is always taming his wild side. Elektra just lets it out. He’s both repulsed and deeply drawn to that.[22]
  • Elektra in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the second live-action incarnation of the character, following an incarnation portrayed by Jennifer Garner.
  • Lauren Mary Kim and Aja Frary were stunt doubles for Élodie Yung and Rissa Kilar was a stunt double for Lily Chee in the role of Elektra.
  • In-universe, Elektra’s status is unknown as her body was never found. When asked about her possible survival, showrunner Erik Oleson replied, “I have to answer this one carefully. Elektra is missing. No body was found. This is, of course, all off-screen, so we will see what the future holds. But as far as Matt is concerned, at the beginning of the season, he presumes she’s dead.”[23] Ultimately, Daredevil was cancelled before Oleson could expand on Elektra’s fate.
