Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you've seen all of the teasers for the new season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix which will be released worldwide on March 18. This second season, we will see two characters get the definitive live-action makeovers they deserve: the Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra (Elodie Yung). The former has a deep library of quality stories despite some mediocre films, while Elektra has only had a handful of essential memorable stories to wash away the forgettable 2005 film starring Jennifer Garner.
Part of that has to do with creator Frank Miller, who had an agreement with Marvel to keep her dead after he was done with her ... but Marvel broke that agreement several times. Many have since tried, but only a few have managed to do Elektra stories that stick. Consider this your essential Elektra comic primer before she is brought back to life, once again, in live action.
