black family's house destroyed

Daredevil starts to be a unique, special comic for the first time since the first 50 issues.  In these issues, Marv Wolfman, Bob Brown and Klaus Janson create the character Torpedo (who goes on to bigger things in the pages of Rom The Spaceknight).  DD and Torp fight and fight and fight, savage, blinding.  It’s the first time we really see Matt Murdock swept away with emotion.  They’re so caught up in the heat of the battle that they destroy an innocent family’s home.

It’s a real emotional approach to superhero conflict–one that we haven’t seen in Daredevil before and, really, only saw previously in a few issues of Spider-Man.

Great stuff.
