A completely black panel.
CAP (DD): I wake to darkness.
CAP (DD): The same as any other day.
Flashback. Young Matt Murdoch rushes to push the blind man out of the way of an oncoming chemical truck.
CAP (DD): When I was 12 years old, an accident left me blind… yet enhanced my other senses greatly. It also gifted me with a special sixth ‘radar’ sense that allows me to see better than most sighted people.
Another completely black panel.
CAP (DD): I still wake to darkness every day.
CAP (DD): Today, though, is different…
Another black panel – but this time we see the silhouette of DD’s face at the bottom and concentric ‘radar sense’ circles rising up through the darkness.
CAP (DD): Not only can’t I see, but I can’t move either. I can hardly even catch a breath…
CAP (DD): …and when I do, my other senses overload. The rank smell of sweat and sour cologne. The pounding beat of a thunderous drum. The enormous weight pressing down like I’ve been buried alive…
Flashback. Daredevil is fighting the Kingpin. Stood like a boxer, he's laying into the Kingpin with punch after punch after punch, desperate to knock him out. The Kingpin takes every punch... but he might just be weakening.
CAP (DD): I try to work out where I am. How I got here. What was the last thing I…
Out of flashback. Now we see exactly where DD is – he’s fighting his way out from under the Kingpin’s unconscious body. Having knocked Fisk out, the Kingpin has fallen on DD, knocking Matt out in turn and half-smothering him in the process. In this panel he struggles to free himself from underneath his enormous enemy.
DD: Get… off… me!
CAP (DD): Foggy’s never gonna let me live this down.
