So apparently, Tony Stark is goingto help out his pal Daredevil by restoring his sight. Nice of Tony to start there instead of underprivileged kids, but I can let that slide.
What I find interesting about this is that it would obviously be a massive change to Daredevil as a character. Which is kind of an odd thing to do to a character who’s had a consistently decent-selling book for the last 4 or 5 years. Also, his visually impaired-ness is one of the defining characteristics of Daredevil.
Now, I’m not saying that taking away a hero’s powers or in this case, restoring something that they haven’t had in years, is necessarily a bad thing. It puts the hero in new situations that they may not know how to handle and can make for some interesting story fodder.
For a little while. Because what we’ll have to eventually endure is the re-blinding of Daredevil and I don’t know if that’s a story that I really want to read.
’tis the Circle of Comics though, I suppose.
