    Interesting. It's been a while since I last read MwoF,so I would need to look over it again before making a choice in the matter.

    I see. I've read the Spider-Man one, which I also liked, so I guess I'll might have to check out the other ones as well. I was actually considering taking a gamble and getting the "Colors" Omnibus, but I ended up just getting the DD one, and I already had the Spidey one as digital from earlier.

    Another really good issue. So glad to see spoilers:
    DD and Spidey on good terms again, I did not see that hug coming though lol.
    I am currently reading the Hawkeye run from 2012 and there is a mafia kind of gang wearing adidas tracksuits there, and in this issue during the ganster meeting there is a guy there wearing a tracksuit, is that possibly the same gang? I can't remember seeing him before in this run.

    Hmm, technically wasn't Elektra in over her head when she got killed by Bullseye? Just sayin.'
    His current approval rating is 34%, meaning 34% of Americans are still morons.

    spoilers:
    Zdarsky certainly has every right to include Spidey since he wrote for the character, but I have to wonder if they also like having him on lots of covers.

    Regarding the ending of the issue:
    spoilers:
    I assume it's Mike Murdock pretending to be Matt. It's good for preserving his secret identity, but does anyone think maybe Mike will screw it up?

    Overall, loved the issue. Always enjoy when Matt and Peter get together and like that Zdarsky is rebuilding their friendship.

    I feel like a broken record; however, Checchetto just continues to kill it from an art perspective. Everything he draws is great though I would specifically call out how he draws Elektra is fantastic.

    The ending has me a little concerned;however, I am willing to see how things play out given what Zdarsky has done so far.

    spoilers:
    100% he will. Plus, I am not sure how he is even going to fake being Matt as clearly doesn't have the legal/education skill that Matt does. Plus, I am concerned that he might make a move at Kirsten. In my mind, Matt has to come clean to Kirsten immediately, even if they still want to play the charade of Mike pretending to be Matt. If he allows Kirsten to think that is him, I think that would reflect very poorly on his character.

    I suspect that's the point. That Matt is going to be pressured to reveal his secret, and have to grapple with all the sides of that particular little dilemma.

    spoilers:
    Matt claims he still loves Kirsten. But he is definitely going to let Mike, if it is in fact Mike, pretend to be him in order to keep her off his secret id. For "her own good," because Matt is such a great judge of what's good for anybody. I see it going one of four ways. 1) Matt lies, Mike is able to fake it with Matt's help, Kirsten ends up oblivious to the truth and Matt feels terrible about himself for lying to her, even though in his mind he's protecting her. 2) Mike tries to take advantage of Kirsten, using the Matt disguise. Which forces Matt to either intervene as DD, which could be awkward, or to reveal the truth to her. I expect this path ends with Kirsten thinking "Matt", really Mike, is a total asshole and wanting nothing to do with him ever again. Thus making Matt feel bad, because she nearly got raped and now he's truly lost her for good, even though he wouldn't choose to be with her anyway. 3. Matt sucks it up and confesses. Which probably ends with Kirsten dumping his lying ass, when she realizes that he skipped out on her in order to have his secret id back when the Purple Children gave him the chance. But if played delicately could get Matt and Kirsten back together.

    Or 4) Mike, as Matt, gets together with Kirsten. She's none the wiser, chalking up "Matt's" new failings as just not knowing him that well before. And the two of them keep right on dating, because Matt is too damn stubborn to tell her the truth. So he loses his girl to his weird, formerly fictional, sort of clone brother, and has to angst over that while he deals with everything else. In which case I expect wedding bells in the none too distant future, because if we're going full soap opera with it, then let's go full soap opera with it.

    spoilers:
    I hope it's the better version of your third option, or he just comes clean from the start. What gives me a slight bit of hope is the conversations he had with Foggy and Elektra. Where Foggy told him to stop being the victim and Elektra's quote, which I loved, about him using selfishness masquerading as selflessness. Also, with he is realization at the end about how lucky he is have to have people in his life

    Yes, another good issue. Great to see Checchetto drawing although I'm going to against the grain and say that I felt his art in certain moments felt a wee bit more rushed than usual and I'm not too keen on how he drew Kirsten. I remembered her having softer features whereas she seems to be kind of sharp/pointy. I still think he's a fantastic artist and I love how he draws Daredevil.

    Regarding the previous issue, I wondered why Matt didn't approach Danny Rand in helping out with the real estate. Danny is much more altruistic than Stark and would probably help out without hesitation.

    spoilers:
    I'm also hoping Matt comes clean with Kirsten, I would just hate for Mike to hitch up with her. Although, Mike could eventually see the error of his ways and do the right thing for his brother

    Zdarsky is similar to Grant Morrison in that he incorporates all of the protagonist's past, even stuff we may find kind of goofy, and fits it together. I'm really interested in how it pans out but I do hope this "retcon" gets "unretconned".

    I think that's a really great quality to have for comic writers. And it's how it should be. When things are established in past runs, they should be incorporated moving forward. That's how characters are pushed forward and evolve. Too many writers come in and do their own thing and disregard everything like it's a creator owned run. I don't like that.

    Yes, that's more likely to happen.

    It was another good issue. Glad to see Matt and Peter resolve their issues. I wouldn't mind Spidey showing up again from time to time.

    Especially when it goes counter to the entire history of the character.
