In the Ultimate universe, Elektra Natchios was a student at Columbia University who has a knack for martial arts and was a big fan of Bruce Lee. Her mother died of breast cancer when she was six, and her father was trying to make money with a laundromat.

She started out as a sweet, innocent girl who cared deeply for her loved ones - so deeply that she was willing to go over dead bodies to help them. This trait started her descent into becoming one of the most deadly assassins.

She became the Kingpin's right hand and was considered a villainess. She was a highly dangerous and skilled killer, and was able to take on the likes of Hammerhead, Black Cat, Moon Knight, and Spider-Man easily, although Spider-Man was early in his career and Moon Knight was caught off guard. She was later put into a coma when Moon Knight threw one of his crescent blades at her, hitting her in the head when she was about to kill Black Cat. She was thrown off a window by Black Cat and landed on a police car, but she was mentioned by Jean DeWolff to have survived.[1]

  • There is a gap between the Elektra featured in Ultimate Daredevil and Elektra and Ultimate Elektra and the one shown in Ultimate Spider-Man. In the first two arcs, she is a normal college student, but in the last arc - which is set a few years later - she has become the Kingpin's right hand and was considered a villainess.
