Today in Comics History, August 13: Happy birthday, Elektra Natchios!

This is an combined, expanded and updated version of two posts originally published August 13, 2013.

Hey, it's the birthday of infamous Daredevil ex Elektra Natchios!

Happy birth-day, Elektra! Don't do anything that'll make you lose your security deposit on the way out!

Also on this day, Elektra racks up her first kill. (hearing all the booing): IT'S FICTION PEOPLE

I mean, it's not as if her Dad died on her birthday, too...oh wait.

from Daredevil (1964 series) #168 (Marvel, January 1981), script and breakdowns by Frank Miller, finishes by Klaus Janson, various colorists as "Dr. Martin", letters by Joe Rosen

Well, maybe better don't mention her birthday, Matt. I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it.
