* CombatPragmatist: Tactics used by Elektra include: BulletproofHumanShield, EyeScream, GroinAttack, InTheBack, KilledMidSentence, NeckSnap, and PlayingPossum. In one story she held a ''dog'' hostage (albeit as a distraction from her ''real'' strategy).

After the Man Without Fear saves her from mobster Eric Slaughter and his hit-men, Elektra learns Daredevil's secret identity and tries to rekindle their relationship, only to be rejected because of her killing ways. Together, the former lovers battle and defeat the Hand after the organization attempts to kill members of the Chaste. After Elektra became the Kingpin's chief assassin, Elektra and Daredevil battle continuously until she was ordered to kill Franklin "Foggy" Nelson, Matt Murdock's best friend. Unable to kill Foggy, who recognized her as "Matt's girl", Elektra was forced to battle Bullseye, the Kingpin's former chief assassin. Elektra fought hard but was defeated by Bullseye after he impaled her on her own sai. Mortally wounded, Elektra crawled to Matt's doorstep and died in his arms. Resurrected thanks to Daredevil and Stone, an associate of Stick, Elektra traveled the world as a freelance assassin/bounty hunter. After aiding ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}, ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} and her former lover Daredevil, Elektra was replaced by a Skrull agent named Siri prior to the ''Secret Invasion'' event. Once freed, she became more involved in the superhero community and began walking a careful line as an AntiHero -- not evil, not good, just herself. She is currently with the ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}}.

Elektra Natchios is a MarvelComics anti-hero created by Creator/FrankMiller.

Encountering Stick, leader of the secret martial arts organization known as the Chaste, Elektra's fighting skills were honed to peak human levels. Unfortunately the hate in her heart got her expelled from the Chaste, so Elektra joined their rivals, the Hand. [[TheCorruption Corrupted]] by the Hand, Elektra became the organization's top assassin until breaking free from their control and returning to New York.
