Characters Appearing: Chance (Nicholas Powell), Daredevil
Issue(s): Daredevil #246
...and winds up being a target for the mercenary Chance. Chance ultimately takes a liking to the guy and lets him live.
The story might have worked better if the cab driver had a reason for getting involved, but Daredevil basically commandeers his cab and makes him chase the crooks (Daredevil's uncharacteristic decision to use a cab is quickly said to be a mistake; another contrivance) and then the cabbie decides to jump into the fight. Weird story.
A scene showing the civilian side of Chance is basically a repeat from his first appearance.
In fact, this issue makes me think that Christopher Priest was more heavily involved in David Michelinie's plotting when Priest was Spider-Man editor than the credits let on.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: N/A
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
I dunno about Priest being so involved with Michelinie's plots: Chance's wealthy background and high-tech suit scream Michelinie to me. This guy's an Iron Man villain.
Further evidence of his Michelinie roots might be adduced from his upcoming ASM appearance.
