Every Monday here at Invincible Marvel, we do a character spotlight on a character in the Marvel Comics Universe, giving you a brief history and recommended reading about this character. To celebrate the upcoming release of Daredevil Season 2, our Invincible Marvel Character Spotlight this week is the one and only Elektra!
Elektra Natchios was raised in Greece by her father after her mother died shortly after her birth. She was taught martial arts by a sensei at the behest of her brother. She moved to NYC and attended Columbia University, where she began dating Matt Murdock, who would go onto become the costumed vigilante Daredevil.
Elektra’s father died when her and her father were kidnapped by terrorists. This caused her to return to China and continue her training as a ninja, training with Daredevil’s former sensei Stick for a short period of time, and getting caught in the middle of the conflict between two ninja groups the Chaste and the Hand. Elektra would be tied to the Hand for years to come.
Elektra would then become the Kingpin’s assassin, which would bring her into conflict with Daredevil. Elektra then died at the hands of Bullseye, who was killed in a fight over who would be the Kingpin’s assassin. Elektra would stay dead for years until she was revived by Stick’s apprentice—Stone. Elektra has been tied to Daredevil and Matt Murdock ever since. She has yet to appear in Marvel’s All-New All-Different relaunch.
Friends, Enemies, and Allies (her allegiance changes often):
- Improved strength, speed, and reflexes
- Master of martial arts
- Expert of weaponry (especially sais)
