Issue Summary

Summary by Eric Shaw

Our story starts with DD returning home after last issue's action. He is fed up with being Daredevil and blames the superhero gig on having alienated everyone close to him. As he strips off the crimson uniform and starts to put it away forever a strange noise catches his attention from inside a closet. Opening the door finds Matt face to face with an android! A four page battle ensues with the robot triumphant and carrying away an unconscious Matt. Suddenly the robot hears the tell tale sounds of a white cane on concrete and splits the scene. Matt recognizes Willie's voice and they hustle back to Mr. Lincoln's apartment.

While our hero's recoup, we're let in on the robots history. It turns out that a few weeks back Biggie Benson contacted a Starr Saxon while in prison. Mr. Saxon is hired to rub out Daredevil for interfering in the framing of Willie Lincoln. Star is seen next in his lab programing the robot with a scentolator and aromascope! Now the robot can hunt DD no matter where.

Back to the present, and still at Willie's apartment, Matt is bandaged up and starts to realize how positive his role as Daredevil can be because of the way Willie has gotten back on his feet.

Daredevil returns to his home gym to await the robot and his wish is answered almost immediately. Once again Daredevil and the robot rumble. But, once again the robot gets the best of DD by wrapping him up in a gym mat!
