Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here's the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we continue our look at what is most likely the greatest Daredevil story ever told, Born Again, by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli. It might last longer than a week, as there are a lot of cool moments, and they just keep coming with greater frequency as the series continues its slow build towards the ending.
As Daredevil #233 begins, Nuke and his helicopter support are killing innocents at random. Daredevil steps in and does his best to take out Nuke, but then the helicopter starts machine-gunning the crowd.
Daredevil takes extreme measures to stop the carnage, and then, in one of the more "out there" moments of the storyline - the Avengers show up!
Miller's juxtaposition of the Avengers against the gritty noir feel of this storyline is just brilliant.
That is about the closest you could get (maybe Marvels?) to showing how superheroes would seem in the "real" world.
Good stuff by both Miller and Mazzucchelli.
