Issue Summary

Summary by Eric Shaw

Our story opens with Matt and Foggy being ferried to Rykers Island from the city. Matt is consumed by recalling the recent resignation of Karen. She cannot be second fiddle to Daredevil in Matt's life and she's leaving on a jet plane from Newark. He's planning on telling Karen she is the most important part of life just as soon as the morning business is completed. That business is to talk to the recently incarcerated Gladiator who is claiming to not be said villain! Foggy, Matt and the prison shrink begin the interrogation of the prisoner with foggy positively identifying the Gladiator after having been almost killed by him back in issue 18. Matt's super senses can tell the Gladiator is lying but cannot determine why he is feigning amnesia. Meanwhile Karen beats herself up about leaving Matt and how maybe she shouldn't but is going to anyways. Back at prison the brilliant DA Nelson pulls out the deadly saw- blades of the Gladiator in an attempt to prod he truth from him. This was just what the Gladiator wanted to happen and seizing the saw blades he begins his escape. Matt slips out in the ruckus and changes into DD. He tips off a guard to pull the alarm and goes hunting for Gladdy. They meet and battle to a standstill for four glorious pages! Interlude: Karen gets on the plan for Los Angles. Big surprise. Back at our battle DD tricks the Gladiator into a row of newly built cells. The confident Gladiator attempts to slice his way out but finds his blades shattering on impact! It turns out Foggy is brilliant and had tampered with the blades so they would disintegrate after the Gladiator had played his hand. Foggy wonders how DD knew the blades would break on schedule and DD says Matt informed him. Well maybe Foggy isn't so swift. Daredevil rushes to a phone in the wardens office in a last ditch attempt to reach Karen. But as we the readers already knew, Karen isn't answering anymore.
