Elektra Natchios may be one of the deadliest assassins in the Marvel Universe, but she’s still a human being. And while murder may be her art and profession, the act still weighs heavily on Elektra’s soul.
One of the way’s she’s dealt with this has been by killing for what she believes are noble and good causes; helping out organizations like S.H.I.E.L.D. and heroes like Wolverine, Daredevil, and her allies on the latest incarnation of the Thunderbolts.
Does killing, even if for virtuous reasons, ever really even the scale? Does Elektra view herself as a hero or something much worse? And how does she handle her desire to atone and be something better? Writer Zeb Wells and artist Mike Del Mundo seek to answer those questions this March when they kick off a new ongoing “Elektra” series as part of All-New Marvel NOW!.
Elektra arrives in stores in March, 2014.
