This gets weirder
Daredevil (2015-) #604 - Charles Soule,Mike Henderson,Chris Sprouse

FML, warrior-priests.   And they're gonna end up coming back, I just know it.   It didn't get weird enough for me to dislike this or give up on this series, but ugh.  

 

Shit is gonna get weirder by the time we're done, too, I just know it...

 

Marvel and christian mythology as part of it's narratives/superhero elements always, always gets weirder.

So this gets weird...
Daredevil (2015-) #603 - Charles Soule,Mike Henderson,Chris Sprouse

Look, I hate when Marvel introduces religion too heavily into its comics.   They can explore bigotry against a religion, have religious characters, but when they start getting into heaven/hell and incorporate it into their storylines?   It gets weird.   Not in a 'way to go, that's freaky and mind-blowing way.'

 

In a 'welp, that was awkward, Marvel' way.   Not enough to get me as mad as the gas lighting about Hydra, but...

 

Oh, right, so Matt's priest gets weird.   See, him being Catholic and going to a priest causes narrative tension because he was raised Catholic and is a superhero and that shit gets dirty real quick. 

 

Having Matt's priest do exorcisms gets weird.  I know because I've read the next issue.   Which makes me wonder: why, Marvel, why?

More fallout
Daredevil (2015-) #602 - Charles Soule,Mike Henderson,Chris Sprouse

Blindspot has to deal with his own demons, even as Matt is thrust into a role of power just in time to stem some of the damage from the Hand.  

 

Once again, a taut entry into this series: it will take a long time for the fallout to end, and that's after the Hand finishes their work in NYC. 

 

Eager to see where this goes, past issue 604.

Daredevil is captured
Daredevil (2015-) #601 - Charles Soule,Mike Henderson,Chris Sprouse

At the same time, the Hand starts infiltrate the city.   How does DD fix anything from a prison cell, especially since he's gotten the heroes he knows thrown into a cell as well?   How does he stop a corrupt mayor from making things worse?   

 

So much fallout from 600, from Fisk's decisions, and from Matt being too overeager to take the Kingpin down.
