DAREDEVIL #30: The big secret revealed
I've decided to try to get into the Bendis/Maleev DAREDEVIL run. I know some of the basics (Matt is revealed as Daredevil, Matt gets married, Matt becomes the new Kingpin, Matt has *another* nervous breakdown, Matt ends up in federal prison) but not all of how we got from A to B to C to D.
Anyway, one part I never quite understood about Matt Murdock being revealed as Daredevil (for the third time?) was how anyone *could* reveal that. The Kingpin made sure no one in his organization knew besides him.
Samuel "Sammy" Silke is a rather talkative criminal who wants to dethrone the Kingpin, now that the Kingpin is blind. (Thanks to Echo.) Silke was confused and angry that the Kingpin wouldn't approve a hit on Matt Murdock, who was in charge of a class action lawsuit against one of Silke's companies.
So why does the Kingpin want Murdock left alone?
That's Richard Fisk, once known as the Rose the mid-80s and the Blood Rose in the early 90s. He doesn't look as blond and handsome as he once did. Maleev is making him look almost like a young Bela Legosi here.
Criminals are a superstitious and cowardly lot. They also know when to ignore the ranting guy from Chicago.
Daredevil costs the various "organizations" and "syndicates" millions of dollars? Sweet.
Sammy's father is in Chicago. Sammy talks about him a lot, but I don't know if anyone outside of New York cares that much about Daredevil.
Obviously, Sammy doesn't know that the Kingpin *has* tried to kill Daredevil. Rather violently. But for a long time, the Kingpin had a "Nobody gets to break you but me" thing with Daredevil.
As we learn later, this was Richard's attempt to have his father killed once and for all, in order to "save" himself and his mother. Things do not go according to plan. Many criminals are killed. Silke gives DD's ID to the FBI for protection. The FBI is unsure what to do with this info, but a fed sells it to the Daily Globe. Wackiness ensues.
