Daredevil and Elektra swap costumes in new fan art


Elektra recently took over the mantle of Daredevil and a new piece of fan art puts that on his ear, giving Matt Murdoch an Elektra costume!

In hilarious new fan art, daredevil and Electra change your costume! Artist @residenteuph teased the piece on Twitter, showing Elektra wearing a Daredevil outfit, and Matt Murdoch wearing Elektra’s outfit. Although the play is largely made for laughs, it also reveals a deeper understanding of the characters of Daredevil and Elektra.

@residenteuph’s piece is inspired by events that happened at Chip Zdarsky’s house daredevil. Daredevil accidentally left a person to die and was forced to stand trial in his costumed identity. He was found guilty and sentenced to prison. However, Hell’s Kitchen was still in need of a Guardian, so in his absence, Elektra took over the role of Daredevil, complete with a new take on the classic costume, infusing him with his own flair. In prison, Daredevil uncovered a plot to dose prisoners with drugs to make them more violent, while Elektra had to deal with Wilson Fisk aka the Kingpin, who tried to clone an army of Bullseyes. Fisk, the mayor of New York, also launched a smear campaign against the city’s heroes, which resulted in the current reign of the devil Event. As reign of the deviland Zdarsky’s first act daredevil ends, the artist @residenteuph offers a humorous vision of these events, the two heroes exchanging their outfits.

In a Tweet, @residenteuph showed the room, saying it was only fitting for Matt Murdoch to wear an Elektra outfit, now that she’s Daredevil. The piece shows Elektra, in his unique Daredevil costume, swinging into action in Hell’s Kitchen with Matt Murdoch absolutely killing him in an Elektra outfit. Murdoch only made one change to the outfit, adding a blindfold. In the background is a neon cross, with the word “God” written back and forth. The piece received a positive response from fans, with some noting that Elektra’s outfit looks good on Murdoch.


New @residenteuph fan art reflects the events unfolding in daredevil, Elektra replacing Matt Murdoch, but it also shows a deep understanding of the Daredevil character, namely the religious iconography in the background. Daredevil’s Catholicism means a lot to him, informing his decisions and giving him comfort in dark times, and @residenteuph’s photo reflects that. The art also perfectly recreates the relationship between Daredevil and Elektra; Matt Murdoch is more public and open, which is why he’s front and center. However, Elektra is all about stealth and being the silent weapon no one sees coming, which makes her background placement perfect.


Daredevil and Elektra are one of Marvel’s greatest couples, with a relationship built on trust and loyalty, so much so that Electra agreed to fill in daredevil while he was away and fan @residenteuph offers a humorous take on that exchange in new fan art.
