The Wrong Side: Daredevil vs. Black Widow

Here's the setup for Daredevil #4 by Kevin Smith, Joe Quesada and Jimmy Palmiotti. A baby has shown up and bad guys are trying to get at it. Daredevil gives the baby to his former lover, the Black Widow, for protection. What Daredevil doesn't know is that he has been drugged so that whenever he gets close to the baby, he believes that the baby is the antichrist and that he will do whatever he can to kill the baby (it also makes him act like a bit of a jerk in the process). So that leads to the following confrontation between Daredevil and Black Widow over the fate of the baby...

He then tries to kill himself and the baby by jumping off the roof, but manages to overcome the drugs and saves himself and the baby at the last minute.

Now let's toss the qualifiers out there. She DOES have a baby on her back. And Daredevil is acting kind of nuts.

Okay, the qualifiers are over with and the fight is still terrible. What the heck? That's it? He just grabs her kick and then knocks her out right away? That's not cool at all. That's just plain ol' wrong.

Okay, that's it for this week!
