Dr. Van Eyck
Karen has arranged for the visiting Duke of Lichtenbad to bring Matt Murdock back to his country. Dr. Van Eyck, a surgeon who could restore Matt's vision, is staying in Lichtenbad, and the Duke wants to do a favor for an old classmate. Matt agrees, knowing the Duke is hiding something.
You know what? I'm going to cut this short. This issue is really awful! We've got a no-budget version of Dr. Doom, complete with robots, armor, and a European dictatorship. Dr. Van Eyck figures out Murdock is Daredevil, then dies saving the world from the Duke's cobalt bomb. DD is captured, escapes, leads a revolution, and fights the Duke who falls to his death. But you probably figured that out just from the first paragraph. Hell, even the country's name, "Lichtenbad", screams out the plot.
There are interesting developments back home as Foggy realizes the depths
of Karen's love for Matt. His jealousy poisons his friendship with Matt
as he starts bad-mouthing him to Karen. These scenes of purely human
drama are where artist Wally Wood excels.
