Since Season 1, Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix has been establishing the ninja organization, The Hand, as a major and enduring antagonist. Their mythology was further explored as Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) learns that his college sweetheart, Elekta Natchios (Elodie Yung), was the mysterious Black Sky. But, will they play a bigger role in Season 3?
What is The Hand?
The organization known as The Hand is quite important not only in the lore of The Man Without Fear. They also play a prominent figure in the entire Marvel Universe. In the past, they have killed heroes such as Wolverine and resurrected villains such as Doctor Octopus.
The ninja order worships an entity called “The Beast.” Many of The Hand’s mystic powers, including resurrection, presumably come from the demon.
On television, The Hand worships Black Sky, a name mentioned for the first time in Marvel’s Daredevil Season 1. By the finale of Season 2, it was revealed that Elektra is fated to become Black Sky, whatever that is.
