compound said:Gene Khan a.k.a. The Mandarin is a businessman, yes? "Renowned throughout China for his administrative brilliance", according to his Wikipedia entry.
I don't believe he's shown up in the UU, though he'll probably need a little tweaking in order to pull it off in a believable, realistic way -- the biggest cop-out would be to make him similar to the version of Ra's al Ghul form Batman Begins.
But he could probably use fany rhetoric to convince the public that his redevelopment plans are in the interest of "progress and technology" and whatnot, in order to soften the blow of an international businessman lobbying to re-zone an entire district.
I'd imagine that, to complicate matters, *some* land-owners from Hell's Kitchen would be all too happy to just be paid a healthy sum for their real estate, and move to a 'nicer' part of town, realistically.
In any case, "Urban Development" is an arc with LOADS of story-telling potential. Good job, Overlord!

Elektra is foiled by the Black Widow in an assassination attempt, and Elektra escapes. Black Widow finds Matt on a date with Karen Page, and asks for his help. Karen, clueless to Matt's identity, thinks he's cheating on her. So when Matt ditches her to make sure Elektra and Black Widow don't kill each other, Karen digs through Matt's address book at work, and heads off to Patsy Walker's house. Confronting Matt's old date, she tries to figure out why Matt just takes off like he does. Patsy does her best to cover for Matt, though Karen isn't convinved. Thinking Karen had left, Miss. Walker gets in her Hellcat garb and with her few 'cat gadgets' goes out to find Matt, Karen follows. Hellcat's pursuit leads her to Elektra, Echo and Black Widow in a three-way split cat-fight. Elektra, her own girl now, Echo working for Fisk (we will later find out Elektra's target had value to the Kingpin), and Black Widow trying to bring them both into custody.Hell cat enters the brawl on Black Widow's side and takes on Echo. Karen finds her way to the fight and sees all of the women from Matt's past dukeing it out on a roof top, when Daredevil arrives to end the fight, Karen pieces two and two together and realises who the Daredeil is. Who wins the fight? Who dies? And who recaptures Daredevil's Heart?
The Overlord said:Innocent Until Proven Guilty:
Someone has released a deadly poisonious in NYC's subway system, killing 20 people. All signs point to Klaus Voorhees aka the Cobra as the one behind the attack. However when DD captures the Cobra he claims to be innocent. DD knows that Cobra is telling the truth. Now Matt Murdock has defend Cobra in court while searching the real killer.
TheManWithoutFear said:You're big on the original villain comes back and gets framed storylines aren't ya?
Not a bad story but who is the real killer?
On another note...shamefully I posted a series of arcs to Vol.15ish on other sites and am thinking about bringing them here.
Here's my basic idea for a DD game set in the UU that still fits in with the timeline. It's incomplete, and the minor missions are going to involve Fury, Spidey etc.

With no way to escape, the two begin to search Ryker's for help. Recruiting Bullseye and Chameleon for the job. Staging a mishap the four cause a riot at Rykers and escape. Bent on bringing down Daredevil the Four start calling themselves the Frightful Four and go to the Kingpin and demand money, weapons, etc. But Mr. Fisk has more valuble paraphinalia, the secret identity of Daredevil. . . .

ProjectX2 said:Yeah, it ain't finished yet. There was going to be a fight with Elektra, The Hand, Electro and the Kingpin.
the watcher said:How about some cameos besides the Punisher like: Spider-Man, Maybe have one of the Ultimates try to recruit Daredevil, but DD turns them down, & Maybe Ben Urich.
Maybe when DD sees the Punisher have him do a voice over reflecting back about how he first meet the punisher back in the Ultimate Marvel Team-Up #7.
Ultimate Incredibles said:Here's some ideas for two storyarcs I came up with:
On Beetle's Wings:
Stilt-Man is back, more dangerous than ever. After he manages to beat both Daredevil and Spider-Man, he moves to onto his target: Abner Jenkins AKA Beetle. After he manages to kidnap Beetle, DD and Spidey join forces to save Beetle and stop Stilt-Man. Will they save Jenkins? Or will Stilt-Man have his revenge?
Stilt-Man, Jester, Leapfrog, Gladiator and Cobra break out of prison and want revenge on Daredevil. While this is happening, Matt also has to deal with Karen and Foggy, who start to think he is Daredevil. How can he be in two places at once?
