13Karen’s Role Will Look More Like Ben Urich’s

Karen and Ben Urich in Daredevil

“Born Again” finds Karen as a destitute and drug-addicted porn star ready to give up Daredevil’s secret identity for a quick hit. Given that Daredevil Season 2 didn’t end with Karen experimenting with hard drugs and a career in pornography, it’s pretty unlikely that she’ll follow in her comic

inspiration’s footsteps. The MCU version of Karen has a lot more agency than her comic counterpart, and season 2 found her working at Ben Urich’s newspaper as a journalist.

Urich has a crucial role in “Born Again,” but since the MCU version of the character met a tragic fate in Season 1, all of that character real estate has to go to someone else. Who better than MCU Karen, a stronger, more independent version of her comic self who is already taking steps to fill the vacuum left by Urich’s death?
