Miles Morales and Elektra Vs Continuity in Spider-Man #14 and Daredevil #16 Today (SPOILERS)

Continuity gives Miles Morales a headache. Literally. Especially when fighting one of his major villains, who he can no longer remember their shared history, as his Ultimate Universe was merged with the Marvel Universe, along with his family and friends and reviving his dead mother, courtesy of Molecule Man in return for a hamburger. Yes, this really happens. What Miles Morales understands or is meant to understand about what happened to his life is still up in the air. So when fighting a part of it that has come to this universe (along with the previous version of Miles Morales from the Marvel Earth), well you can understand him getting a migraine.

Well last week saw Marvel Comics published Incoming #1, which has Miles Morales saving a traffic on Brooklyn bridge, along with Peter Parker Spider-Man. And today's comic book touches on that scene.

But Incoming #1 also had Matt Murdock and Elektra fighting on a rooftop.


With Elektra calling him Matt. But in today's Daredevil #16, out today…

Elektra still doesn't know this about former-Daredevil. Though others do…

And maybe by the end, Elektra is getting a clue. Or something within her is reaching out. Quite a complex on that woman.

Let's all remember what John Constantine has to say about this sort of thing.
