Daredevil – Guardian Devil | Comics

Karen Page is gone for six months; leaving Matt Murdock completely broken and have his Catholic faith shaken.

Matt Murdock and his long-time love interest Karen Page has been through a lot that they probably wouldn't have survived without each other's support. She went on a separation with him to rediscover herself, leaving Matt in an angered state behind. She has been gone for almost six months now and all he is left with now is his good old' Catholic faith, which is also pretty shaken these days. So, he heads to church for a confession as he is having a hard time to remember the Lord but it is cut short when he hears something.

A 16 year old girl, Gwyneth suddenly finds out that she was four months pregnant and her catholic parents find it very shameful. One morning she wake up seeing her parents getting murdered in front of her and so, she was running from home. She gave birth to a baby on her own and as she was about to hit by a car, costumed crime-fighting superhero Daredevil came to her rescue and knocked the attackers down. When he turns back to ask the girl questions and he was left alone to face the cops for the mess he just made.

Later at Nelson and Murdock law firm, Matt was still unable to shake off the thoughts of Karen when his friend and partner Foggy Nelson introduces a client of a multi-million dollar divorce case named Lydia McKenzie but he hears the heartbeats of that running girl from midnight and her infant child. Eventually she comes to his office next day claiming an Angel sent her to meet him and she apparently knows who he really is. She hands him over her child to keep it safe from the people chasing after her and then leaves at once.

Matt was astound to learn that she never having engaged in a sexual encounter with anyone before, which means that the child is either a messiah or could be an Antichrist. He called in his former flame and an Avenger member, Black Widow who thought it was a booty call. Natasha Romanov later tries to protect the child from harm upon hearing his side of the story when Murdock even violently attacks her to get the baby. Meanwhile, Karen Page suddenly shows up at his door after having the shocking revelation of being HIV positive because of her time as a drug-addicted porn star in past.

Foggy is suddenly found accused for a murder of a divorcee with whom he was having a secret affair for some time. This led him to be fired by the law firm of his own mother to avoid further problems regarding this case which also disgusts Matthew. While trying to find answers to his questions, Daredevil came across his long time arch-enemy Bullseye, who returns to get a piece on him as well as the baby. The friendly neighborhood Spider-Man also came visiting him briefly. Murdock is probably losing it all or getting mad for real but what on Earth are Doctor Strange and Mephisto doing in all these?
