G4′s Blair Butler broke the news that Daredevil will no longer be the protector of Hell’s Kitchen when issue #513 hits shelves in December. Marvel has been hinting that the events spiraling out of Shadowland could spell the end of Daredevil and Matt Murdock.
With Daredevil sidelined, Black Panther will be stepping in as The Man Without Fear and protector of Hell’s Kitchen. While I can think of a couple of characters that appear to be a more logical fit as Daredevil has been presented as a “street level” superhero for some time now.
While I’m not ready to abandon ship, I’ll hang in for a couple issues to see how this one pans out.
