Issue(s): Daredevil #211
Meanwhile, the newest member of Synn's tribe has been brought to America: the witchdoctor known as the Vikah. I don't believe the Vikah ever speaks on panel (or maybe at all; Foggy suggests in issue #213 that he's a mute). He just grins that creepy old man grin.
Synn also has two women kidnapped: Nelson & Murdock secretary Becky Blake, and the Kingpin's wife Vanessa Fisk.
The injury Daredevil got from Crossbow is partially why Daredevil is unable to stop Becky's kidnapping. The Kingpin, on the other hand, seems to allow the kidnapping of Vanessa.
The women are to be sacrificed to the Kinjorge's god Mow.
I demand that Mow be given his own series. He is awesome.
Daredevil, still weak, is able to break up the sacrifice.
But "Vanessa" is killed dragging Becky out of the room.
I imagine that wouldn't have happened if Daredevil was in top form.
It turns out that "Vanessa" was really an actress-double. The Kingpin tells Daredevil that he regrets her death. Daredevil says he believes him, and based on the Kingpin's regret, Daredevil is willing to form an alliance with him against Synn.
The Kingpin/Daredevil alliance has been foreshadowed in this storyline, so it's nice to see it come to fruition.
