Daredevil 111-115

Post by Col_Fury » Tue Jun 16, 2009 1:36 am

Daredevil v2 #111
November, 2008

Appearances:
Daredevil, Dakota North, Iron Fist, Lady Bullseye (also in fb), Lord Hirochi, Bullseye (in fb)

Synopsis:
Pg1-pg6: one day
Lady Bullseye spies on Daredevil while Iron Fist focuses Dakota’s chi to help heal her arm.
Pg7-pg10-FB: many years ago
In Tokyo, Bullseye battles Yakuza in a warehouse, killing them. Women are being kept as slaves, and one gets loose during the fight. She kills one of her captors and escapes.(she will become Lady Bullseye)
Pg11-pg20: same day
Matt and Dakota stroll through the park while Lady Bullseye beats up some thugs, she coerces one into claiming that Daredevil is a murderer. Afterwards, Matt teaches Dakota some meditation techniques, and they get distracted by making out. Meanwhile, Lady Bullseye reports to Lord Hirochi of the Hand. They discuss recruiting Iron Fist, Black Tarantula, and Wolverine, and he reminds her that Daredevil is off limits.
Pg21-pg22: next day
Daredevil wakes up in bed with a nude Dakota, he grabs the morning DB newspaper with the headline: “Daredevil a Killer Claims Witness”.

Notes:
Enough time has passed since last issue for Dakota to be released from the hospital, but not enough for her to completely heal (she's still wearing a sling). The Daily Bugle is now the DB, and there are green leaves on trees in New York.

Iron Fist appears here at least sometime after Immortal Iron Fist #16, but if I remember right that issue continues directly into the next arc. So probably sometime after that, which would either be during Immortal Iron Fist #20, or after Immortal Iron First #26.(keeping in mind that it takes Iron Fist “several months” to get where he’s going at the end of #20)

The ‘many years ago’ FlashBack could really go anywhere for Bullseye. Howsabout:

BULLSEYE/BENJAMIN POINDEXTER

Meanwhile, Murdock and Dakota discuss their affair and find Master Izo in Murdock’s home with the Black Tarantula tied up. Izo asks where the booze is.

Notes:
The New Avengers FlashBack technically goes between the last two pages of New Avengers #31, but since the Avengers don’t appear on the last page, it would fall between New Avengers #31 & #32 for the team members. Like so:

Notes:
If we wanted to treat the photos of Murdock & Dakota doing it as a Flashback, it would fall between pgs 20 & 21 of DD2 111 for both. Like so:

...
DD2 111 (1-20)
DD2 114-FB
