Synopsis for "Apocalypse"Edit

Karen Page, the former secretary of the Nelson & Murdock law offices and the ex-girlfriend of Matt Murdock from long ago, had left years earlier to pursue an acting career. After a brief period of success, however, her life takes a turn for the worse, as she becomes a heroin addict and gets reduced to starring in pornographic films in Mexico. Strapped for cash, she sells the information that Matt Murdock is Daredevil for just a single shot of heroin. After a long process, this information is eventually sold upward to New York, all the way to the Kingpin. Over the course of the next six months, the Kingpin uses his influence to have the IRS freeze Murdock's accounts, the bank foreclose on his apartment, and police lieutenant Nicholas Manolis testify that he saw Murdock pay a witness to perjure himself. By coincidence, Murdock's OTHER girlfriend Glorianna breaks up with him and turns to dating his law partner and best friend Foggy Nelson on the rebound, making Matt ever the more depressed.

  • Karen Page was last seen in the pages of Daredevil in Daredevil #138. In this issue, Karen is revealed to be a drug dependent "junkie".
  • Matt's Brownstone apartment is destroyed in this issue. However over a decade later in Daredevil Vol. 2 #8 it would be rebuilt into the new location of Nelson and Murdock when they use the money from Karen's will shortly after her death by Bullseye to re-establish their own law firm after they broke away from Rosalind Sharpe's law firm. Their business would remain there until Daredevil Vol. 2 #93 due to Matt and Foggy needing a more discreet location since Matt's secret identity had been leaked to the press, and that too many of Daredevil's enemies knew about this location.
  • This issue is reprinted in comics and books, see references for info.[1]
