The White Tiger Series Discussion (Spoilers)

Prior to the events in Civil War...

Del Toro is now living in Harold Driver's apartment (Upper West Side NY)

She puts on a black outfit and fights some neighborhood thugs. The gang has fake government documents (Passports, Green Cards). "Daredevil" comes and pays her a visit. She chases him up to the roofs. It's obviously Danny but he's using a voicebox to hide his voice from her since she knows Danny Rand. He tells her that something called Chaeyl is backing these gangs and after he gives her some tough love, disappears.

Angela meets with a friend in the bureau. He says this Chaeyl isn't a myth and the gang's are backed by Cobra and his nephew, who recently became superpowered with the help of his uncle's blood injection. All the same powers and a new sense of smell.

Some hot shot who works for Chaeyl is holding a meeting in his home with Cobra's nephew and Sano Orri, the yakunza member who killed Driver. They plan on taking care of the woman in the black.

Angela returns home and beats up a homeless guy whose picking on another homeless guy. And tells the victim to tell everyone she's going to rough up anymore scumbags who come around. In her apartment a letter from "MM" tells her to go to Melvin Potter's Costume shop to get a costume.

On her way, Black Widow stops her and they shop together. She's given the costume and Spider-Man stops by to pick something up for Luke Cage. Everyone's impressed with the costume. Del Toro's unsure.

Black Widow and Angela go out to eat together. Black Widow talks about her country's experience with Chaeyl.

The White Tiger goes to the garage where one of the gang members works and tries to get information. Cobra's nephew (Cobra) shows up and they fight. She has the upper hand until Orii shows up and the two escape. Angela goes pyscho after her partner's killer and jumps on the getaway cars roof. She's flung off and left badly injured...

3/5

Enjoyable but nothing great. I'll keep reading.

So Angela survives being tossed from the car without a scratch. She finds Eddie and takes his throwaway mobile to see if it will help in here investigation.

She meets up with Daredevil "2.0" and Spider-Man and I can't remember what they talked about.

Sano's pissed at Eddie for failing and makes an example out of his friend by cutting his head off... yeah...

Del Toro out of nowhere gets a job as some little girl's bodyguard. In the club Sano's there dancing and Del Toro cuts in and in the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen in comics, they do this fight style dance that only a woman would think think the target audience for comic books would enjoy. It was bizarre if you ask me. It's broken up when Cobra jr. slides down and freaks everyone out.

Del Toro then goes home and puts on The White Tiger outfit and heads off to where Sano usually caps off his nights. Daredevil "2.0" meets her and they begin to fight until the cops bust it up and tell them they're under arrest.

3/5


I'm probably missing some things but I can't remember. The dance off was pathetic but the rest was good.

They weren't Cape-killers. They were like S.W.A.T.

this books not pre-civil war, the prelude at the front of the book tells you that white tiger became the white tiger before civil war, the rest of this book takes place concurrently with civil war, primarily after the punisher drops spider-man off at the anti-reg warehouse

it's the only way spider-man and DD2.0's appearence's in this book could make sense

and SWAT doesn't look like that

Or the encounter could be before Civil War picks up... Pretty sure it says it all take place prior to Civil War. While Matt Murdock is in jail. Spider-Man asks DD 2.0 if he thinks he's gonna be in trouble when Matt finds out.

i'm pretty sure by the time Iron Fist is acting as Daredevil, Spider-man has already switched to his iron spider costume

and why would peter know it's not Matt unless he had already found out and the only time DD2.0 and spider-man would have met is after pete joins cap's resistance

Dude, I'm telling you they even say that Matt's in jail in the issue. There's a blurb at the beginning of both issues saying it takes place before Civil War. Do you know how many times we've seen law enforcers dressed in those S.W.A.T.esque/Capekiller outfits in comics? It means nothing. This takes place before Matt breaks out of jail and before Stamford goes to ****.

do you know how far back it would have to go in order for that to work? atleast before the other, but danny wasn't running around as daredevil back then

just white tiger's origin took place before civil war, the rest is current marvel universe

Then the continuity is messed up but this isn't during Civil War.

Why are you blameing me for it? It's not my fault.
because youre wrong

all youre saying is this is what it said in the prelude to the book and this goes for the whole book

at least im giving reason's to why it takes place where it appears to really take place

I was so curious about the fight-dance, that I had to see it for myself... and I LOVED it. It blew me away.

It reminded me of the first Daredevil/Echo fight in the playground, during the arc where Echo first appeared. ("Parts Of A Whole", I think; it was the battle that was referenced in the half-assed flirtation/fight between Matt and Elektra in the park, in the Daredevil movie).

I'm still gonna traidwait this, but I think the creative fight scene was very, very unique, and waaay more interesting than a standard confrontation. It makes Del Toro stand out as a unique character, in her approach towards combat.
