Daredevil #20

"Purple" comes to a close by finally revealing the truth of how everyone forgot that Matt Murdock was Daredevil. As expected, given the events of the recent issues, events tie back to the Purple Man and his children. After defeating Kilgrave, the Purple Children decide to make one final use of their father's machine to undo the damage he did to the city and to Daredevil. And just like that, Daredevil's true identity was forgotten.

Now the method of Daredevil's identity being put back under wraps does have some flaws. Kilgrave's powers are proximity based. Even if the kids and the machine helped amplify his powers across the world, what about characters in space? In another dimension? Or immune to mind control? This would seem to leave individuals out there who still know the truth and could reveal Matt Murdock's secret at some point in the future.

For now, however, Daredevil is back to his old self. Walking away from Kristen and pissing off Foggy, with his identity unknown our vigilante is back to his old tricks taking the fight to organized crime in New York. Now if we could just get him out of that black costume. Worth a look.
