In the previous issue, we learned that someone online was spreading lies about St. Nick’s Church, claiming that Father Matt was running a criminal organization at home, with the children under his criminal protection. These stories even prompted the New York City Police Department to come to St. Nick’s looking for answers (Father Matt told them to come back if/when they had a warrant).
After investigating who is behind this smear campaign, Matt is shocked to learn that his good friend, Ben Urich, the current owner of the Daily Bugle, is one of the most honest people Matt has ever known.
In these preview pages, Matt enjoys traveling the rooftops of New York City once again as Daredevil. We see him sneaking into the Daily Bugle’s offices, but once he’s hidden in the space above Ben Jurich’s office, Matt is shocked to see Robbie Robertson, Ben Jurich’s second-in-command at the Bugle, arguing with Ben about these matters. Attacks on St. Nick’s, as it is devoid of any facts, but Urich shows no remorse for his actions and Robertson simply states that Urich is the sole owner of the Daily Bugle and what he says applies!
In the first issue of the series, Elektra was temporarily possessed by a demon, and it’s possible that could happen here with Urich as well. Matt is recalled from spy duty by his assistant priest, Father Jaffe, who reminds Father Matt that they have to deal with a visit to the house by Child Protective Services.
A deadly new gang called “The Heat” was introduced in the previous issue, and it’s likely that Father Matt or Daredevil (or both) will also have to take on The Heat in this issue as well, which is due out next week from Marvel.
