THE CHARACTER DAREDEVIL AND SETTINGS ARE THE PROPERTY OF MARVEL INC. AND THEIR RESPECTIVE AFFILIATES. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED, I THOUGHT OF THE STORY BUT THESE AREN'T MY PEOPLE.

No Caption Provided

-

Fire and smoke fill the entire church. Daredevil is unconscious and trapped underneath a large support beam from inside the chapel as sparks and flames dance it's way across the walls and floors.

-

His hand twitches and moves. There is still some life left in him.

-

The Lord is my shepherd....

-

Smoke and ash fill Daredevils lungs which cause him to cough and awaken to his senses.

-

[Angel: Charlie!?... Oh thank god... I'm at the top of the south bell tower. It was The Kingpin's men... They hurt me real bad.. Ehhhhughh... I can't move...]

-

[Daredevil: I'm coming kid. Just keep talking to me... EEEEERRRRR]

-

Daredevil squirms from underneath the beam as he lifts it up. He slowly crawls out and lets it fall to the floor as the fire begins to consume it.

-

I shall not want....

-

[Angel: I'm so sorry Charlie... for everything. This is all my fault.]

-

Daredevil continues to crawl froward to the large stairway. He slowly turns around to lift himself up the first set of stairs. When he feels his legs with his hands he cringes, but continues to climb. Both of his legs have been smashed and broken to a pulp. His right leg is turned completely around with his femur bone sticking out of his knee. His legs are useless.

-

[Daredevil: It's not your fault kid. I should have been more careful.. I shouldn't have made you go through with this. Any of this.. hold tight, i'm coming for you.]

[Angel: No Charlie... you don't understand. I.. I was going to betray you tonight. The Kingpin promised me, you'd be safe if I turned you in.. I tried to reason with you but you wouldn't listen. I didn't mean for any of this to happen.... Im so sorr--]

A large explosion from inside the cathedral cuts her off. The entire chapel is up in flames and crashing down. The fire has nowhere else to go but up the stairway. The fire slowly makes it's way up the wooden steps catching up to Daredevil, step after step.

-

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures....

-

[Daredevil: We will talk about this later I promise, Gen. But for now I need you to try to move. Talk to me... What's going on around you.]

-

[Angel: No Charlie, we need to talk about this now, we might not have a later. I need you to know that i'm sorry with all of my heart. I need to know that you forgive me.]

[Daredevil: I forgive you. Gen, now talk to me. Our connection.. I can hear you, but I can't feel you.]

-

[Angel: They did a real number on me..... the window is still clear, but I can't move. I think.. I think my neck is broken... I can barely talk to you telepathically.. I can't feel you anymore Charlie... I can't feel anything.]

-

He leadeth me beside the still waters...

-

Daredevil climbs even faster than before, dragging his limp legs over the hard steps without any care other than Angel. His tears slide down the side of his face as the fire draws closer and closer to claim it's prize.

-

He restoreth my soul...

-

[Daredevil: I'm almost there! I'm going to save you my little Angel... Im going to save you.]

-

He reaches the top of the stairs as the fire slowly follows him. He slams his body against the door as it flings open. The room is filled with smoke. He blindly feels towards the window until he reaches Angel's limp body. She is bloodied and unconscious.

-

[Angel: I'm drifting Charlie... I think i'm dying.]

[Daredevil: We're almost out of this Gen.. don't give up on me.]

-

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake...

-

Daredevil grabs a hold of Angel as he drags her and himself across the floor to the window.

-

[Angel: Charlie... I love you.]

-

Daredevil can feel one last thing from his beloved partner. He can feel the last bit of life drain from her body. It's slow and torturous, but it ends just as soon as it begins. Angel is dead in Daredevil's arms as he weeps. The fire draws nearer, but he doesn't care anymore. His only reason left to live is now dead in his arms. He wants the fire now. He not only accepts it, but envies it's playful gaze.

-

The fire flutters nearer and nearer and just when it's about to consume him, fate intervenes.

-

Four men in Daredevil suits make there way through the window. They look like him, but only to a small degree. One is wearing a yellow and red version of his costume. Two others are half dressed in an Iron Soldier suit, but painted black and decorated with small horns on their helmets. The final one is dressed exactly like Daredevil, only this one is completely black. He looks at Daredevil than smiles. Daredevil ignores the commotion as he waits patiently to die.

-

Black DD: Get him. Hurry before he suffers anymore injuries! Leave the girl, shes already dead.

-

The two Iron Soldiers walk quickly towards Daredevil. They slowly try to dislodge Daredevil and the dead body from his arms. The minute they touch Angel, he snaps. He grabs his dual club and pulls them apart, retracting the dagger on each end. He swings to fatally stab one of the soldiers in the heart. The moment the dagger is about to hit, it's smacked out of his hand by a flying object. The yellow and red DD has thrown the grapnel from his own club to stop the attack.

-

Daredevil, now more vulnerable than ever, is forced to let go of the limp body. They cling to him and quickly exit the small room together, leaving the dead body of Angel behind. As they carry Daredevil to the rooftop across from the church Daredevil flings his right hand backwards to his friend. Tears fly from his eyes as he opens his mouth to scream.

-

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death....

-

Daredevil: N...N.. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-

I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me....

-

The last part of the church explodes into a massive inferno. Daredevil passes out as he watches the church decimate and burn.

-

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.....

-

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daredevil's eyes slowly drift open as he is being carried. He is too weak and tired to fight back.

Unknown 1: He talked. I thought you said he couldn't talk.

Unknown 2: Yeah? Well I thought so too.

Unknown 3: You also said he wouldn't try to kill us. If it wasn't for Dexter, I would be dead right now, you idiot. Can you not do anything right ever?

Unknown 4: Cut the chit chat. I'm pretty sure Tommy here has plenty of reasons why his intel was off, but right now we need to focus on getting sleeping beauty to base so we can patch him up before he loses anymore blood. Our boy here has had a pretty rough night... The last thing we need right now is for him to wake up.

Unknown 2: Do you guys hear that?

Unknown 4: Oh Sh%*. Iron Soldiers. Liz, Dexter cover me and Tommy. We need to lose them!

-

He slowly closes his eyes and drifts back into unconsciousness.

-

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Daredevil slowly awakens. He is on a small hospital bed in a dusty, quiet room. His costume is ripped from the waist up exposing the scars and burns on his chest. His legs are wrapped in bandages and steel cables leading to a large machine. His mask is also off and he notices. He rises his hand to touch his face, but to his surprised he is cuffed to the steel bed. He turns to the other side of him to notice a man adjusting the machine connected to his legs.

-

Dexter: Ah... You're up! That's a good sign.

-

Daredevil looks down at his legs. He can't see them, but he could feel them. They throb in pain.

-

Dexter: It's not as bad as it looks.. or feels, I promise. I put a few tech plates and rods in. You should be fine.

-

Daredevil then lifts his hand to touch his face again. Hes angry at the thought of being unmasked and hand cuffed.

-

Dexter: Yeah, i'm sorry about that. Jake said the quicker you got used to being without it, the quicker you would get more comfortable around us. We don't really have any secrets around here.

-

A woman walks into the room. She has half of an Iron Soldier suit on. She slowly takes it off as she looks angrily at Daredevil. She sits next to the man fixing the machine.

-

Elizabeth: C'mon doc, I don't have all day.

Dexter: Patience my lady. And... err that should be good for now. This damn thing has been overheating lately. If I find out your brother has been messing with my stuff again, I swear, i'm going to kill him.

Elizabeth: Well, thats if you beat Jake to it.

-

The man lifts the back of her shirt up as he grabs a small needle shaped like a large crayon off the table. He faces it towards the woman's back as it zaps her wounds.

-

Dexter: Hes that mad huh?

Elizabeth: Yeah, I don't blame him either. Tonight was too close. He should have known a couple of Iron Soldiers were trailing us, I mean.. he has one simple job and he can't even do that.

Dexter: Are you alright?

Elizabeth: I'll be fine. They got me good though.

**Zaappp***

Elizabeth: Ugh... And then let's not forget this guy.

-

She turns to face Daredevil who is patiently listening to the duo.

-

Elizabeth: Eehhh... If you hadn't been there, he would have killed me. He was going for a kill shot, I could see it in his eyes.

Dexter: Well, lets not dwell too much on the past, mmkay? and besides... this man is completely blind. You're fine.. your brother is fine.. Jake's fine... i'm fine...

-

The man turns to face Daredevil.

-

Dexter: Everyone's fine... Just be thankful for that.. And you're ...done here.

Elizabeth: Whatever you say master Zen...

-

The woman stands up and begins to walk towards the doorway. She turns to stare Daredevil in the eyes. The void in his eyes intrigue her, but she ignores her interest and opens the door to leave the room.

-

Dexter: If you're going that way, would you mind fetching Jake for me? Tell him our guest is awake and in stable condition.

Elizabeth: Yeah, sure thing..

-

As the woman walks away she turns one last time towards Daredevil then leaves.

-

Dexter: So, DD. How does a blind man like you do the amazing things you do? I tested your blood among a couple of other things and well.. you're normal. You're special sure, but abnormal? I don't think so. You are aware of your surroundings, but you can't see them, can you? You're completely human. You are a warrior, but still only a human one. One thing is for sure.. you are a very daring man.

Daredevil:.....

-

Dexter: You can talk you know. We thought maybe you were physically unable to speak, but after tonight, I can pretty much guarantee it that you aren't a complete mute. My guess is SM. Selective Muteness. You can speak, but your brain won't let you. Usually a person with SM is only unable to speak in public functions, but not you. I am willing to bet you haven't spoken in years.... Why is that?

Daredevil:.....

-

Dexter: Nonetheless, it's fixable.

Daredevil: ....Angel........

-

Dexter: Angel? Was that the name of the woman at the church? I'm real sorry about her DD, I really am.

-

At that moment two men forcefully walk into the room. The one in front looks dominant and strong while the second looks passive and awkward.

-

Jake: How's he doing?

Dexter: Well, he'll walk again.. talk again too.

Jake: Powers, cybernetics?

Dexter: As far as I could see he is perfectly normal. No powers or cyber here.

-

Jake leans in closely to face Daredevil.

-

Jake: What's up with his eyes?

Dexter: Hes completely blind. Judging from the retina scarring, i'd say he wasn't born that way either. Someone, somewhere really did a number on this poor guy.

Jake: Maybe it was the same somebody who gave him all these scars.

Dexter: Maybe....

-

The woman from earlier enters the room. She has her arms crossed and looks impatient.

-

Jake: Now that everyone is here, why don't we have ourselves a little introduction?

-

The man walks over and puts his hands on the woman's shoulder.

-

Jake: This here is Elizabeth Grace. Shes the one you almost killed tonight. Elizabeth here is our one and only weapons specialist. According to Tommy, you too are pretty good would make an interesting match. Charmed i'm sure.

-

He then walks over to the man behind him. And grasps his shoulder too.

-

Jake: And this...this here is Thomas Grace, but everyone calls him Tommy. As you may have probably gathered hes Elizabeth's brother. Mess with the bull and you get the horns haha. Tommy here is in charge of Intel. He has been watching you for the past 2 years. He knows you more than you know yourself.... or atleast he should.

-

Jake: I believe you have already met our technician and personal medic, Dexter Hemingway. You're either in his way or out of his way, it's really up to you. Don't let the glasses fool you, he can certainly fend for himself .. and anyone else if he has to.

-

Jake: My name is Jacob Solace. If you haven't figured out by now we are a team. We usually don't concern ourselves with small things such as church fires or muggings like yourself, but that doesn't mean we just sit around either with our heads up our you know whats. We try to make a difference... like you.

-

Jake: Now would you like to introduce yourself?.... No?.... That's fine with me. I would rather hear it from Tommy anyways. Guy needs the practice. Tommy, you're up champ.

-

The man clears his throat. He is nervous.

-

Tommy: Name. Charles West. Named after the man who raised him... who isn't his real father. Real name, unknown. Age, anywhere from early twenties to mid thirties. Sex Male. Occupation... vigilante. Men killed 23. Women Killed 2. Hes heavily trained in a unique blend of Ninjutsu, Aikijujutsu, Jujutsu, capoeria, Judo, Aikido, wrestling, stick fighting and even moderate telepathy reading. He has no powers but is very strong willed. You can skin him alive and he won't tell you anything he doesn't want you to know. Known Affiliates. Genevieve "Angel" West...

-

Daredevil throws his arms towards Tommy. The hundcuffs stop him. They won't break.

-

How do they know this? doesn't matter anyways... they'll all be dead pretty soon. I promise.

-

Jake: Ah Ah Ah. You had your chance to speak. Now it's Tommy's turn. Go ahead, continue.

-

Tommy:... Ms. Genevieve was the woman from the church earlier tonight. He wants to kill us now.

Jake: Ok! Wow. What a breakthrough this all has been, huh Chuck?

Tommy: He doesn't like being called that. He prefers Charlie. He wants to kill you even more now.

-

Telepathy. I'm not protected by Gen anymore. Im on my own.

-

Jake: Oh, my bad. I forgot to mention how Tommy here is a telepath. Whoops.... Why is he smiling?

Tommy: I...I don't know.

Jake: WHAT?! What do you mean you DONT KNOW? Read his mind, isn't that what you do?

Tommy: That's just it... he isn't thinking anything.. at least nothing I can read.

-

I was raised with a telepath. How would I not know how to block one out? Especially one with such a low level of confidence. I'll kill him first to put him out of his misery.

-

Jake: Time and time again I keep finding more and more reasons to boot you from this team Tommy.

Tommy: Sir, I..

Jake: Irrelevant. The thing is Daredevil.. There is a reason why our costumes are very similar to yours. You noticed our fashion statement, yes? Oh yeah.. forget you were blind. Anyways...

-

Jake: It's simple really. My great grandfather was Matt Murdock, the original Daredevil. Tommy and Elizabeth over there are the great grandchildren of the infamous assassin, Elektra Natchios. Dexter is the great grandson of Melvin Potter, who was once a dude named Gladiator. We are all connected in some way or another. Even you and your friend Angel.

-

What?

-

Jake: We all want the same thing here. This world needs heroes and what better heroes than the seed of the originals? We of course have come to an agreement that you ARE Daredevil. You have disgraced that name, but that doesn't mean that you have destroyed it. I believe for the most part that you are crazy... insane even. But I also know that you do the things you do for good reasons. You along with us are going to change this city. You want to kill The Kingpin? Fine. We'll help you. We are the Dark Devils... and I Mr. West... I was Genevieve's cousin... which kind of makes us cousins. Welcome to the Family...
