This may just be one of the best Marvel issues I have read in a very long time. The first part of "The Devil's Hand" is our introduction to a new era of 'Daredevil,' one which he has the opportunity to become the leader of the most infamous assassins guild in the Marvel universe, 'The Hand.' In order to become their leader, Daredevil must kill an innocent man (their choice). Once the task is completed, 'The Hand' will be under Matt Murdock's control. So the question arises, when a decent person utilizes an evil organization to do good deeds, is it possible that the inherently evil tool has the ability to corrupt the hero? Additionally, can Matt Murdock really justify sacrificing the life of an "innocent" human being, in order to gain the respect of 'The Hand' as their leader? More importantly, will he go through with it?
