The love interest of Daredevil, Elektra Natchios (aka Elektra) is one of Frank Miller’s best loved creations, and despite the fact that she has killed more men than just about any other character in the Marvel stable, she remains one of the more popular heroines in the Marvel Universe.
A kunoichi or female ninja by trade, Elektra is of Greek descent, and is almost never spotted without her trademark pair of bladed sai. Sided with the Hand, a sect of mystical ninja, Elektra is a particularly fearsome assassin, who finally split from her mentor group and went on to become the chief assassin of Kingpin, New York City’s premier crime lord, where her path eventually became entangled with that of Matt Murdock, aka Daredevil.
She is an extremely talented martial artist with a very high proficiency in most bladed weapons. She has mastered many Japanese combat forms, including Ninjutsu and is an Olympic-level athlete, with honed abilities like strength, speed, stamina, agility and dexterity. She is resistant to pain and extreme heat and cold, and is also able to almost blend into the shadows at will.
