It was a rough time for long-time Marvel Universe smokers like Nick Fury and Wolverine when Joe Quesada banned smoking from Marvel Comics, under the premise that would negatively influence the *checks notes* mostly middle-aged readers of superhero comics since Marvel and DC do nothing to successfully market their comics to actual children, who wouldn't be able to afford them anyway.
But in next week's Daredevil #2, this preview shows, one brave doctor is doing his best to bring the tradition back!
It all starts because the titular Daredevil has been framed for murder, and his friend Foggy Nelson wants to help him…
But Daredevil doesn't want Foggy's help.
Meanwhile, our hero emerges…
Ok, vaping isn't nearly as cool as smoking is. But it's a start, right? Unfortunately, before he can blow out some wicked vape clouds, Daredevil interrupts…
So are we to surmise that Daredevil is the avatar for Joe Quesada himself? That's how we're reading it.
Daredevil #2 hits stores next Wednesday.
