A Japanese assassin, Elektra worked as a bodyguard for the Kingpin,[1] but in fact was secretly hired by Kingpin's ex-wife Vanessa to assassinate him for idle standing by while their son Richard's neck was slit.[2]

It also was revealed that she was in a lesbian relationship with her as well. During a final confrontation with The Punisher to save Vanessa, she is shot in the chest, and her fingers were blown off. She is then shot in the head.[citation needed]

Elektra survived, but lost her eye and was paralyzed from the neck down. She is seen speaking to a man that represents the Hand, asking to see Vanessa. He states that she can't help her, and asks her to move. She tries to her bodily functions, but to no avail. The representative states that he will miss her, and has another man assassinate her with a sword.[3]
