Marvel made the bold choice this week to open up their preview for Daredevil #610 with a steamy sex scene between Daredevil and Elektra, who is — *checks Wikipedia* — alive this week. This storyline, titled The Death of Daredevil, is the last of writer Charles Soule’s run, and seemingly a stopping point for the title, though it’s sure to reboot with a new number one issue, perhaps after the Marvel Knights mini-series wraps up.
As to whether Daredevil will actually “die” in the story, and how it might happen, perhaps Elektra kills him after finding out he spent their intimate moment thinking about all his other ex-girlfriends?
Newsarama had this preview first, but failed to emphasize its explicitly sexual nature in their headline, losing out on prime horndog clicks. You snooze, you lose, Newsarama!
Check out the preview below, and look for Daredevil #610 in stores on Wednesday.
