I thought I'd sneak in early and complain about The Defenders before it's even out!

There's been a lot of media lately about how DD is "retired" at the beginning of the series and (I assume) gets drawn back into superheroing.

It may turn out great but I have three problems with this sort of plot.

1. It's completely unoriginal. "Superhero Briefly Gives Up Powers" has been done to death.

2. The not a very Daredevily thing. As above, it's sort of a boring trope but that's because it's been done to death in Spider-Man and Superman, etc.. I don't recall it ever being a major Daredevil story line though. He's been sidelined over the years but I don't recall him voluntarily giving up being DD in any real way. The closest I can recall is him leaving New York during the Nocenti days but even then he (strangely) just hung around in costume.

3. It's literally the last thing these Netflix series needs. My chief complaint about the Netflix series is that they're slow as all get out. Jessica Jones chasing and then catching and then sort of losing and then chasing one guy for a season? Iron Fist trying to get his Corporation back for three full episodes? No thanks. And now we have to watch Matt become Daredevil AGAIN? Why?

Anyway, it might be great anyway.
