Daredevil gets an illegal border crosser for a protege
The first order of business was discussing Charles Soule's much anticipated run on "Daredevil," which finds him and artist Ron Garney taking the costumed hero in a rather different direction than the previous creative team of Mark Waid and Chris Samnee.So does that mean Matt prosecutes anybody who's against illegal immigration...but doesn't prosecute interlopers for breaking the law? Very fishy indeed, and very obviously an attack on public opinion about those who just steal into the country, without considering the legitimate worries about infiltrators who can commit crimes. I think Soule's changed Matt from a man without fear to a man without shame.
"I'm sure you've all read Mark Waid's fantastic run on the book, so there's no pressure for me at all right?" Soule joked. "This is my version of Daredevil. I made sure to stay respectful to the character, but I also made some things my own. Daredevil is back in New York City, working as a prosecutor as opposed to a defense attorney. Instead of defending people, he's trying to put them away. For once, his day job aligns with his night job. His secret identity is also back, so no one knows that Daredevil and Murdock are the same person. He has an apprentice -- I don't want to say a sidekick, but someone he's taken under his wing. He is based in Chinatown, and is basically an undocumented immigrant. He's super-cool, and we're all really excited about him."
Interesting how Soule describes his character as "undocumented", as though it validates his unlawful entry into the US. That's PC mania at work. And he's not being respectful of Stan Lee's creation at all.
