Elektra is one of my favorite characters but do any other people really like her. I mean she is like the best assassin and stuff but i was wondering if anybody else liked her.

I don't mind her. I think that Marvel really dosen't put her in stuff and therefor she really can't grow as a character.

I like her but like Marvel needs to do more stuff with her like give her own comic see how well that does cause i cant put up with how she guest appears in stuff like get the guy from Dark Rein to write it

@SecretKnight: I like her, but often she is written as a very quiet person which sort of kills the plot.

I agree they should do more stuff with her. The most inportant thing she ever did ws either her first apperance or with Secret Invasion.

I like her, but I want Elektra to be less tied to Daredevil.

Big Elektra fan! I am sort scared about Heroes For Hire sales. They seem really low, and I was really relying on it feeding my Elektra fix. I still really wish we could get a yearly five part Elektra mini written by Zeb Wells and Clay Mann. Her Dark Reign mini was so, so toasty and poppin fresh! Elektra can do well away from Daredevil and she has, many times, except unfortunately right now, most comic characters are struggling. Stupid recession!  
I think she tends to be underrated as well. Still, she is pretty iconic and cool, so here's hoping for the future!

It's hard to care about a character that isn't doing anything...

I'm A huge fan of Elektra her Prestige of being the first badass Ninja Chick  and i do agree that Marvel really hasn't done anything lately with her, but with that said I will say that even today Elektra still Excites me and makes me keep wanting to see more of her.....

I'm a fan of the character for the most part. I find all too often that Elektra is an under appreciated character to most readers, with lack of understanding and appearances of the character lead people to underestimate her abilities and what she has to offer to the comics. It was nice to see her included into the Heroes for Hire even if it was only twelve issues.

The recent appearance of the characters debut in Punisher MAX came as a disappointment, the character seems poorly written and has a distinctively dull personality. Unlike mainstream Elektra which is the worlds deadliest assassin, but still human and capable of on the spot quips and dry humor etc. The portrayal of Elektra in MAX is disappointing, she's nothing but another sadistic assassin/bodyguard and whore. Hopefully her next appearance in a series will be more appealing.

I do agree with you about her being written for mostly shock value in PunisherMAX. Her banging Fisk and his wife in the same issue was just way to much.

She doesn't appear in enough, sadly. She was a bit of an annoyance when she appeared in Black Widow's The Name of the Rose.

I guess it all depends on the writers and how they decide to fit her into the story. Personally I think it would be interesting to see Elektra work along side of other characters such as Hawkeye, Black Widow, Iron Fist etc. Instead of making her an interference in the stories like in Black Widow # 3. I'd like to see more of what was seen in the Heroes for Hire comics, and not just Elektra but some of the other street level heroes too.
