    Yeah, I watched that one too. It wasn't great but it was a fun watch. Plus, when the DVD came out for the directors cut, it had an amazing documentary with the writers/artists who worked on her series before. Miller (I think... if it was t was from the DD press stuff), Klaus Janson, Bendis, Rucka, and Bill S.

    I can definitely see how this issue could disappoint someone, especially compared to the last run's first issue. She's also had some bad luck with previous solos and appearances. I do think, however, that Zeb Wells and Haden Blackman did the character justice. And while it was in a product that was inferior as a whole, I liked what Soule did with her in Thunderbolts.

    I did. It was half promising, half awful. It was a weird attempt at adapting a mix of the Miller attitude with a horribly botched lifting of the Elektra/Wolverine: Redeemer book.

    It was beautifully shot, but was a mess from a script/choreography standpoint. It was also the only live action option at the time, so I just tried to enjoy it for what it was. And while she was ultimately wrong as Elektra, I really like Jennifer Garner, and commend her for attempting to do justice to the character.

    It was a weird movie. It was originally supposed to be set in a city and then the director moved everything into the forest/woods for most of it. I like Jennifer Garner but if she wasn't in Alias at the time, she would have never gotten the part as she really is nothing like the character.

    Does anyone have the script written for an Elektra movie that was loosely based on Elektra: Assassin?

    I'm not really digging the new costume. I wish they would've done something more inspired than just cutting and pasting her MCU look. She looks too similar to Silk.

    I've read the issue a couple of times now and you know what? I'm starting to like the new costume. They need to explain that big metal bangle soon though.

    Agreed. I really want to know what it does, why she has it, and how she got it.
