Daredevil #2

In both as a vigilante and in his new role as an Assistant District Attorney, Daredevil continues to take on the new gang leader Tenfingers whose control over his followers is explained in the new series' second issue. Suffering a loss in the courtroom when Tenfingers' agents manage to get to the state's star witness is nothing compared to the trouble Daredevil steps in at the end of the issue when The Hand shows up to take back the power Tenfingers stole from them.

I understand the choice in putting Daredevil in the prosecutor's office, but I'm having a hard time accepting Matt Murdock, the champion of lost causes and the little guy, in that role. Nor am I sold on his new sidekick Blindspot whose only interesting attribute two issues in seems to be his suit's powered invisibility.

We'll see if the return of The Hand, and the legion of magic ninjas the group can bring to bear on both Tenfingers and the Man Without Fear, can breathe a little life into the new series. Hit-and-Miss.
