Elektra has bested the Silver Samurai, upsetting back HYDRA's plans of getting the Scorpio Key away from their partner, Iraqi leader Saddam Abed Dasam. Saddam has double-crossed HYDRA, powering up the key ahead of schedule, letting HYDRA run interference with SHIELD and Elektra. Agent Stanley Dreyfuss, thanks to Elektra, has found out that he is only a LMD, a fact that is so upsetting that he goes rogue, and SHIELD pulls his plug. With US fighter jets flocking the skies, Elektra stalks Saddam in his command center, and does what is necessary. Fury arrives to find Saddam dead, Elektra and the Scorpio Key gone, plus a note for a rendezvous in Central Park. Fury meets Elektra who tells him that she will safe-guard the Key, as Fury and his superiors cannot be trusted.
Elektra finishes narrating the above story to the man who killed her father. She puts him in charge of the Key.
