Then, years later, Bendis finally admitted it in the introduction of the New Avengers Omnibus.
Bendis had told a reporter this DD/Ronin information in confidence, but the reporter revealed it in an article. Bendis then thought with Ed Brubaker coming onto the title, DD as Ronin wouldn't work anyway, so Echo became Ronin.
Writer Warren Ellis was working on a novel featuring Daredevil entitled "Daredevil: New York Underground" and was scheduled to come out in 2000. Unfortunately, due to reasons that are still unknown, the book never was released.
The following information was taken from Daredevil vol. 1, issues 326-332, 338-342
After Matt Murdock's untimely "demise" Karen Page, still grieving from the loss, is approached by two movie producers, Jim and Artie O'Farell, from her porn star past wanting to draw her back in with the familiar promises of money and fame. The bait the O'Farell brothers had on their hook this time was virtual porn. The power of interactive media meets the original sin.
The brothers handed Karen a CD-Rom. Disgusted, angered and ashamed of what she was seeing she hit her computer throwing the disk askew and revealing a horrible sight: A young girl--too young, no more than 12 or 13-- and older, adult, hands grasping and groping their way toward her. The scene is one described as raw and ugly. She vows to find whoever -- whatever -- did this to the girl and make them pay.
The police are no help though. They have problems of their own and, unable to repeat the glitch, there's no evidence of the child Karen saw. Not willing or able to give up, Karen puts an ad in the paper for a private investigator. The results are less than spectacular until...
John Garrett, rogue SHEILD cyborg, has a new lease on life thanks to the Hand's magic and Nick Fury's willingness to disobey the orders for the cyborg's termination. Unable to find any kind of work through normal means he turns to the newspapers' classifieds.
It's an odd match -- truly Beauty and the Beast -- and who knows what D. G. Chichester had in mind for the duo. Would it be Karen and Garrett alone or would they receive some behind-the-scenes help? Sadly readers will never know what was intended for Karen, Matt, and New York's favorite psychotic cyborg.
If you have any 'Untold Tales' of Daredevil, please drop me a line and I'll post them here.
