Issue Summary

Summary by Kevin Hollander

Small-time mobster Eric Slaughter is contracted to kill Daredevil for $500,000 by a man identified as "Mr. Pondexter". Slaughter agrees to the contract and the next day, sends some of his thugs to Murdock and Nelson's Storefront. They want them to deliver a message to Daredevil, since he has an arrangement with them. Daredevil is to meet Mr. Slaughter tonight at midnight on pier 42 otherwise they will be back.

To avoid any further threats against his partner, Daredevil complies with the mobster's wishes. Daredevil knows this is a trap and scans the area upon arrival, finding all the hidden assassins. He then attacks them all, attempting to learn who has put the contract out on him. One by one he knocks each of Slaughter's henchmen out when they refuse to provide the information he wants.

Before Daredevil can interrogate the last criminal, he is killed by Pondexter aka Bullseye before he can identify him. Bullseye hired Slaughter knowing that he couldn't kill Daredevil; his goal was to film Daredevil so that his movements can be recorded and studied later. He plans to use this as part of his revenge campaign.
