Daredevil #2

In an issue that continues to put off Daredevil's battle with the Hand for at least another issue, Daredevil #2 (which Marvel Comics is also marketing as Daredevil #650 had it not rebooted the hero every few years) deals with Robert Goldman and the fallout from his recent actions. The idea of a villain, or anti-hero, working behind-the-scenes to pull a hero's puppet strings for his own purposes would have more impact if it hadn't been done so often in comics (see Moon Knight's recent arc). Goldy doesn't see himself as a villain and believes his actions, such as crashing a subway, are all in Daredevil's best interests.

Despite the tease of her death, Kristen McDuffie turns out to have been spared Goldy's actions leaving us with a relieved Matt Murdock who still has plenty of questions about Goldy's insane actions and what is really driving him.
