The The Evil Menace of Electro! wiki last edited by catfightfan on 01/14/14 12:45AM View full history

Whilst the Thing visits Nelson & Murdock to ask the lawyers to review the Fantastic Four's lease on the Baxter Building, Daredevil is tracking down a gang of car thieves, who are working for Electro. Thwarted, Electro catches a news item, informing him that the Fantastic Four are going to be out of town and decides to break in to the Baxter Building at the same time as Matt Murdock visits the building.

Sensing danger on his arrival, Matt puts his Daredevil costume on. Elektro, using the FF's surveillance equipment, spots the hero and they battle. Defeating Daredevil, Electro places his unconscious form into one of Mr Fantastic's space rockets and launches him into space.

Regaining consciousness, Daredevil is able to reset the rocket's controls and returns to earth. First using a horse and then by hanging on to the base of a helicopter, Daredevil returns to the Baxter Building, where he arrives just in time to catch Electro in the act of opening up Mr Fantastic's safe where he stores his designs.

Electro escapes and Daredevil chases him to a nearby theatre where, after a brief battle, Electro becomes trapped in a stage curtain and is then arrested by the police. Daredevil then returns Mr Fantastic's secrets to his vault. The Fantastic Four turn up at Nelson & Murdock and ask for Murdock's work on the lease but leave disappointed when Murdock tells them that he hasn't had time to deal with it.

How Did 'Daredevil' Get So Bad So Fast? 0

Even artwork by consummate professional Joe Orlando cannot save it.As you can see from the cover, the primary villain here is Electro - so you can almost expect it's going to be bad - Electro, as seen in the pages of Spider-man is pretty generic (in fact in one panel of this issue, even Daredevil makes fun of him for his cliched dialogue). And similar to what we've seen with Stan Lee's portrayal of magnetism whenever Mag...

Second issue fail 0

   The cover looks kind of ridiculous. Fitting considering what goes on inside.  In this story the Thing comes into the offices of Nelson and Murdoch to hire them as lawyers.  They then leave and as the Baxter Building is empty, Electro  takes advantage of this time to try and steal some of Reed Richards designs.   Matt Murdoch however has decided to check on the FF to see if he will take them as clients and ends up batteling Electro. This is where the story just flies off the rails.  Even in Sp...
