Daredevil #15

Daredevil #15 continues Matt Mudock's incarceration in Latveria and the experimentation on the brain of the Man Without Fear which began last month. Daredevil slowly struggles to regain enough of his senses and work to escape Dr. Doom's scientists who hope to uncover the secret of his radar sense.

Although it's an interesting idea, I wasn't real impressed with the first issue of the arc and this one is just more of the same. It's not bad, but compared to the storylines Mark Waid has been pumping out with regularity it feels a little flat. Even a last-second appearance by Iron Man and Captain Marvel (who apparently has forgotten she can fly as she stays on the Quinjet rather than help) can't save the day.

However, I am interested to see what lingering (if any) effects from this arc may show up down the line, and I am looking forward to (finally) getting the skinny on Foggy's beef with Matt that was teased but not explained months ago. Hit-and-Miss.
