1st appearance of elektra

Frank Miller introduces Elektra, and 13 year old boys around the country start looking for sais.

The issue starts in a really cool way:

That’s Turk, pretending to be blind, and Daredevil, the blind hero, beating the crap out of him on the next page.

We get the whole backstory of her father being an ambassador and Matt Murdock saving them from a hostage situation, years before he ever became Daredevil.
