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.

Art by: Warren Manser

"When the earth opens up and swallows itself whole

The towns will burn red and the cities will toll

For when the worried Mothers and the Fathers stay out to patrol

The children stay awake at night with wordless bestow

For the very evil that has come from beneath

Will change the words from within the children's teeth

And the ways of the pure will remain in the past

For the children's eyes are the only one's that will last..."

-

Daredevil is quickly running and jumping over crumbling rooftops. Three Iron soldiers are quickly chasing him as well as shooting small blue pulsar beams in his direction.

-

"The eyes of the young are cradled by fear

When the teats of their mothers are no longer near

And the thoughts of the young are riddled with worry

When their fathers last words were "Run, Scurry! Scurry!"

-

Kaboom! One of the pulsar beams sets off a small explosion as it hits one of the glowing mechanical ventilation devices right next to Daredevil. The explosion on the rooftop sends Daredevil hurtling into the air as he gracefully spins, then back springs to the next building, landing hard but overall safely. He continues to run for his life.

-

"Last words are common in a foundation built of Iron

When all the glass is broken and the pavements glow cyan

And the night becomes day as the day becomes night

In a world filled with smoke that clouds the sun's birth right."

-

One of the glowing beams crashes into the back of Daredevil as he jumps mid-air to the next building. The result leaves him aimless and hopeless as he crashes into the waiting fire escape and various other pipes and vents in between the two buildings. One by one he crashes into the pipes before finally landing harshly against the cold hard floor. The ordeal has left him both exhausted and severely injured. As he pushes himself off the ground the Iron Soldiers softly land all around him. All three of their palms glow blue as if they are about to release their final attack upon an already wounded Daredevil.

-

"The Final is an infinite utopia for hatred and greed

The Final is the place where the damned and wicked come to feed

The Final is the time of the titanium genocide

The Final is the place where no man, angel, god or devil can hide

The Final is the age where all ages come to die

The Final is the finale in all beings that reside......"

-

Whack! Daredevil pulls out his billy club and spins it across the face of the Iron Soldier behind him, sending it's beam into one of the other Iron Soldiers. The blast blackens the metal face of the soldier and releases a black cloud before quickly falling to the floor. Daredevil then presses down on his club to release it's sharp threatening dagger from the far end of it. He grasps his weapon and pushes it into the heart of the third Iron Soldier using his full strength and weight. The soldier squirms and gasps as his life slowly drifts away. Daredevil stands in front of the bloody scene on front of him. The first Iron Soldier that had been hit in the face with his club slowly crawls away from Daredevil and her defeated partners. Her mask has been smashed into her face. Shards of metal dig into her flesh as blood and tears flow and drip from her disfigured face. The woman turns on her back as she gives up on any and all hope. Daredevil patiently walks up to the soldier and forcefully crashes his foot into her face. CRUNCH. The woman in the armor remains still. Daredevil precedes out of the alleyway and onto the darkened street. A green, dangling sign hangs in front of him. It reads "Hell's Kitchen". Behind the sign is an old destroyed, forgotten neighborhood. buildings are blackened with ash and the streets themselves are cracked and overgrown with green weeds and vines. The entire neighborhood has been destroyed and abandoned for quite some time. Daredevil continues down the lonely street. He stops before an old apartment building. He stumbles upon the doorway as he cries. He walks through the doorway and collapses on the blackened floor. Above him is an old picture frame. A woman a man a young boy and an older couple behind them happily smile in the pose. This is where Charlie West grew up. This is where his life was taken from him. This is where he needs to be right now.

"When the time finally comes and The Final draws close

The pure and innocent will soon follow with a toast

For when the future stays limb and the past quickly sways

The machines and soulless will mate and birth... The Iron Age."

Did you write that yourself? That's really cool! Great job on the story as well, which fits nicely with the poetry.

@TheWholeDamnShow: Well done! It's really good. May have another DD and Warstar crossover idea, this time with a Spider in tow before I sent my guys off to a mega mission

@batkevin74: Thanks man! I wanted to re-start Daredevil in a way. Not reboot, but start in a new direction you know? So my next story will be a couple of months after the events of chapter 4 so we should be on par and be able to do whatever we want. Im excited to see what we can come up with!
