- "No one can escape from destiny."
- ―Nobu Yoshioka
For years, the Hand had attempted to find the Black Sky, a person considered to be their future leader. Their rivals, the Chaste, were forced to declare war in order to prevent them from achieving their goal.
Meanwhile, Elektra stayed behind to help Stick find the Black Sky. At one point, the two tried to enlist Murdock's aid, but he refused.
After Murdock and Elektra helped Stick escape, Yoshioka decided to lure Elektra into a trap by abducting citizens Murdock helped as Daredevil.

Springing the Trap
Alerted by Detective Brett Mahoney about the abductions, Daredevil successfully managed to track down the hostages to a remote location. Before he could rescue them, however, Hand ninjas attacked him.
Elektra arrived to help her former lover, but the two were forced to make their way to the roof after being severely outnumbered.
Certain that they would not survive, Daredevil declared his love for Elektra and promised her that, if they survived, he would help her elude the Hand.
The Final Showdown
Facing their destiny, Elektra and Daredevil went to the rooftop in order to fight Yoshioka and his group of Hand ninjas. While Daredevil fought Nobu, Elektra killed any ninja that who stood in her way. Daredevil and Elektra fought Yoshioka, but were easily subdued by the master assassin.
Yoshioka attempted to stab Daredevil with Elektra's sai, but inadvertently killed her and was forced to watch as she died in Daredevil's arms.
Blinded by rage, Daredevil attacked Yoshioka only to be restrained by arriving ninjas. Suddenly, Punisher appeared and used his rifle to kill the ninjas before watching as Daredevil and Yoshioka fought each other.
