8. Karen Page's Backstory Gets Revealed

Karen Page has been a big part of two superheroes' journeys thus far, featuring heavily in both Daredevil and The Punisher, but she also has her own story to tell.

Karen's dark past has been teased for some time now, with the biggest clue of all coming from a research file Ben Urich had compiled on her, including newspaper clipping with the headling 'Mystery Accident Causes Teen Fatality', a reference to the death of her brother.

With that dark secret and her proficiency in firearms, there's much more than meets the eye here, and now that she knows Matt's biggest secret, it's time for us to learn hers. She's one of the show's main characters, and her arc is intertwined with Matt's, so fleshing out that backstory - and presumably giving her a much darker or more tragic history - should, in theory, make for a stronger character too.
