Issue(s): Daredevil #2
Another nice aspect is the Thing showing up to hire the services of Nelson & Murdock to review a lease renewal agreement for the Baxter Building.
Of course, that doesn't make much sense: why would you need a lawyer to inspect your building to ensure that it matches the terms of your lease. First of all, you've been living there for a year already; it's not like the landlord went and changed things around on you. Second of all, shouldn't you get a building inspector, not a lawyer? And then, why would you send the blind guy to inspect your building?
Anyway, earlier Daredevil busted up Electro's car stealing crew while Electro was out, and he runs into Electro again at the Baxter Building. Electro is looking to steal secrets from Reed Richards while the FF are out on a mission. Because of his unique powers he is able to bypass the security system, and he turns the defenses on Daredevil, subduing him. Showing true 60s super-villain intelligence, instead of killing him or just tying him up and getting out of there, he launches DD into space in the FF's ICBM, figuring that the FF will return and blame Daredevil. Using the powers of blindness, Daredevil manages to pilot the rocket and crash land it in Central Park.
He returns to the Baxter Building and defeats Electro, despite the fact that he seems super-charged, flying around in waves of electricity.
The FF return and are upset that Murdock hasn't submitted a report on their lease, saying they'll find another lawyer. However, this issue will later be referenced as the issue when Matt Murdock became the Fantastic Four's lawyer. I guess he smoothed things out behind the scenes.

Electro might be the biggest underachiver in the MU. He should be taking on heavyweights (maybe not Thor) like the Hulk or Iron man. In fact he should be Stark's worst nightmare if he controls electrical systems. but instead he gets his butt kicked by the lowest guy on the totem, DD.
he uses a tire as a slingshot!!!!
"There! I've plunged the room into darkness!"
