It's really a shame that more hasn't been done with the Ultimate versions of Elektra and Daredevil (especially before Loeb got his hands on the Ultimate Universe...sigh). I enjoyed reading this trade, even though I liked Greg Rucka's "Ultimate Daredevil and Elektra" a bit more. In this trade, Elektra is back living with her father, who has fallen on hard times since his dry cleaning business burned to the ground under suspicious circumstances. Matt, meanwhile, is in law school, where he's shadowing a lawyer who may not be all that he seems. Elektra, in an effort to pay off her father's debt, begins to get entangled in the seedier side of life, eventually running into the Kingpin.I like Elektra here. Even though she and Matt had a relationship and she cared for him, she's looking out for herself and her father, and she does whatever it takes to achieve her goals. It's rather refreshing to read about a female comic book character who actually has a mind of her own and keeps her own needs to the forefront. Matt comes off as rather sanctimonious, but I think that's probably in line with his 616-verse self, so I'm not going to complain. And Ultimate Bullseye makes an appearance, which I loved. Larroca's art is also good. Altogether, I found this enjoyable.
