Elektra - Blind Man's Bluff - J.D. Coughlan
Elektra and Daredevil have a tense showdown in a textiles factory, which breaks into a fight.
Panel 1: From behind Daredevil's back as he dodges out the way of Elektra's thrown sai, a smug grin on his face.
ELEKTRA (CAP): He's fast.
Panel 2: Elektra's sai hits a large button on the wall.
ELEKTRA (CAP): But I wasn't aiming for him.
Panel 3: Daredevil frowning as the factory machinery loudly comes to life around him.
Panel 4: Elektra dives away from Daredevil as he lunges for her in desperation. With her other sai, she stabs at a large plastic bucket marked " HOT GLUE"
ELEKTRA (CAP): When outmatched in a fight, always use your opponent's advantages against them.
Panel 5: In the background, the hot glue pours out onto the floor, maybe with stink lines emanating from it. In the foreground, Daredevil turns back towards Elektra (OP), his nose and face wrinkled in disgust.
DAREDEVIL: (small) Ugh...
Panel 6: Daredevil, not looking as graceful as usual, throws one of his escrima sticks at Elektra, who backflips away.
ELEKTRA (CAP): When you remove even a sliver of their superiority...
Panel 7: Elektra stands behind a propped up sheet of glass, preparing her sai for a throw. On the other side of the glass, Daredevil stands in a cautious pose, searching for her. He is looking right at her.
ELEKTRA (CAP): ...they will sacrifice the rest in their panic. Then, all that remains...
Panel 8: Daredevil's POV. In his radar-sense, the panel of glass appears as a solid wall that he cannot "see" through.
ELEKTRA (CAP): ...is to push them over.
