Synopsis for "The Verdict Is: Death!"
Daredevil crashes in on some crooks that are snooping around inside the Nelson and Murdock law office and fights them off. Wondering why they're looking for his alter ego, Daredevil follows them to his home, and quickly sneaks in and allows them to capture him so he can find out what's going on. A short while later, Foggy and Karen find out that Matt is missing.
Matt is taken to the Owl's Airie, where the criminal Owl has resurfaced and is making Matt represent Judge Lewis, the judge that tried to convict the Owl for previous criminal offenses. Putting on a mock trial (even though it's obvious that the Owl will sentence Lewis to death), Matt calls upon a witness. When they all humor Murdock when he says the witness is waiting outside, it gives him a chance to leave the room to change into Daredevil and attack the Owl and his men.
However during the battle, the Owl manages to spring a trap and trap DD in a cage. This story is continued next issue...
