A hard-luck hero

I don’t usually dream about superheroes, but last night I had a dream about Daredevil. Or, to be precise, about his civilian identity, blind attorney Matt Murdock. There he was - dark glasses, cane, trenchcoat - striding into a courtroom.
That he seemed so real is a tribute to writer Brian Michael Bendis, whose long, award-winning run on Marvel’s “Daredevil” ended this week with issue No. 81. Bendis’ pacing was a bit slow for me at times, but overall the run was fascinating - and tough on Murdock, who was publicly outed as Daredevil. Now the hard-luck hero is locked up in jail. And his luck’s not going to change: Marvel’s revealed that Matt’s longtime buddy, Foggy Nelson, is going to be killed.
