Elektra, Assassin For Hire in December
In the 1996 volume of Elektra, she did her best to stay on the side of the angels. I recall she even took in a teenage girl to try to steer her on the proper path.
But things are never easy for Elektra. She managed to survive getting abducted and replaced by Skrulls before the Secret Invasion started. We just saw her back in proper form kicking major butt in her Shadowland one-shot. So what's next for Ms. Natchios?
Marvel has released a teaser for a book coming out in December apparently called "Assassin For Hire." No other information is available. I'm sure we can all agree that being an assassin is a bad job. Even if she tries only killing "bad guys" for money, killing is killing. It should be interesting to see what leads Elektra to taking this route once again and what the other heroes in the Marvel Universe will think when they find out.
Does this sound like something you'd be interested in?
Hmm I hope this is an ongoing series, Elektra used to be Marvel's premier Heroine, but her popularity seems to of been fading in recent years. Shame because she's one of my all time favs.
Although if it is an ongoing, I'm not sure how long it will last before it's cancelled, Elektra hasn't had the best history with ongoing series'...
Also seems that Harvey Tolibao is involved with it, and if his work on the Psylocke mini series is anything to go buy, then this will be worth picking up!
"I have read a lot of Elektra books and none of them have made me feel attracted to this character. Nothing about her says that I should read about her... but I am open minded, I'll probably read the first issue and test out the title. "You took the words right outta my mouth. Not exactually. But similar.
Never been a fan or let alone even liked Elektra. She's always kind of been overlooked in my mind.
I did enjoy the time when she was the leader for the hand, until she turned out to be a Skrull =/
Elektra: Assassin is probably one of my favorite comics of all time, but I've been pretty disappointed by most non-Miller interpretations of the character. I'll probably check this out with wild optimism only to be let down, but it's the price Elektra fans pay.
