Daredevil #4

December 15, 2011

Stan Lee // Joe Orlando
October 1964
***

An only-in-comics supervillain—an ex-spy stained purple by nerve gas!—adds vim to a formulaic ish. The strange sight puts onlookers in a thrall, so while Daredevil can resist his commands, others (like the mag’s love interest) cannot. Lee loves a mob scene, so the crowd turns on DD at one point.
