Elektra – The Hand | Comics

The master ninja assassin of Greek descendant Elektra arrives at a mystical resurrection event performed on one of their fallen member by “The Hand” with another member of the clan. She wonders about the process and asks how it is done. They won’t tell her as she is an outsider to them and mostly because she is a woman and also a foreigner.

But the member then starts disclosing a secret dark origin of their organization to her that is almost centuries old. It all started in Kyushu, Japan back in 1575, when there lived a boy named Kagenobu Yoshioka, whose father was once a brave samurai warrior. The boy is always taunted by his fellow companions that his mother is selling herself to the foreigners for their entertainment so that she could support the family and his father's legacy is a lie.

This is a truth, the boy could not handle at all and he knocked the boy off. Kagenobu then rushed to his home only to find the hot-gossip about his mother to be very true. There the boy found his mother being assaulted by a foreigner and he murdered the man in the heat of the event to protect his mother from his barbaric progression.

Seeing the bravery of her boy she took all the blame onto herself and saved him from being accused for the crime but committing suicide in the end. This tragic event however, scarred the boy’s mind for ever. He went on a journey to be a warrior and eradicate all the foreign plagues from Japan, thus avenging his mother and honor her memory.
