Daredevil! Picking up where Charles Soule’s series ended.
Man Without Fear 1-5. A bridge mini series. It starts out with Matt still in his coma from the end of Soule’s series. He wakes up, but his body is broken and he’s not sure he wants to be DD anymore. He drives Kristen McDuffie away and blows off his hero friends like Luke Cage and Jessica Jones who are reaching out to help him recover. But after a bunch of soul searching he decides the city “needs” him and he suits back up, leading into...
Daredevil 1-5. Chip Zdarsky and Marco Chechetto take over the new ongoing. Matt is back to being DD, but he’s not 100% ready. During a fight with some burglars, he accidentally kills one of them. DD is now wanted for murder. A recently transferred police detective is assigned to bring him in and Matt tries to figure out who is framing him. But after a run in with Frank Castle, eventually he realizes he may have actually killed the guy. Spider-Man shows up and tells him it’s time to hang up the cowl and Matt agrees. He stops being DD.
6-9 No longer DD, Matt gets a new job as a Probation Officer and starts banging a bookstore owner who happens to be the daughter-in-law of a Crime Family Head who is fighting a turf war in Hell’s Kitchen with the Owl. Mayor Fisk is trying to make a move to legitimate business/politics and runs afoul of two ultra-rich siblings manipulating the turf war for a real estate scheme. With no DD in the Kitchen, ordinary citizens start copycatting him.
10-18. Things getting worse in the kitchen as dirty cops turn their backs to the turf war, thanks to the Stromwyn Twins interference. Fisk gets a personal beat down from their goons. Elektra shows back up to “retrain” Matt as his new “Stick”. Then they break into the Stromwyn’s server farm and reroute billions into Hell’s Kitchen’s citizens bank accounts. The turf war comes to a head.
19-20. The Stromwyn’s send Bullseye, Crossbones, and other assorted super goons to the Kitchen to destroy it. Kingpin and Matt are fighting to save it side by side. And I must’ve missed a story arc somewhere, because the nun Matt’s been talking to for the last 20 issues was an amnesiac Typhoid Mary and apparently both Matt and Wilson knew it, because Matt gets pissed at Fisk when Rhino attacks their church and the Mary personality re-emerges. An army of average citizens inspired by DD stand up to fight also. When Bullseye kills one of them, Matt takes his mask and returns to being the real DD. After the battle is over, Daredevil turns himself in to face the murder charges....as Daredevil.
21-24. The current arc. Using the bs Supreme Court ruling from Soule’s run, Foggy makes the argument that costumed vigilantes can be tried as their super hero identity. Absurdly, the DA goes along with this, when Matt reveals his ID to his former boss and says if he gets outed, all the cases he tried as a DA will get tossed. Foggy brings in Matt’s ex-GF Kristen McDuffie as co-counsel, and because she doesn’t know Matt is DD, Foggy has Matt’s “brother” Mike pose as “Matt” to be on the legal team as well. Confused yet? Daredevil agrees to a plea deal for 2nd manslaughter. So next issue he’s going to prison...as Daredevil! And now I’m all caught up.
Annual 1. Since he was ‘made real’ by the Inhuman Reader, Mike Murdock is going crazy because he doesn’t have any memories from before, so he steals a norn stone from The Hood and has a OneMoreDay type flashback as we see him and Matt growing up together through their life, including Matt being blinded and their father getting killed.
