Elektra Natchios, usually referred to only by her first name Elektra, is a fictional character in publications from Marvel Comics.
Elektra is a kunoichi – female ninja assassin – of Greek descent. She wields two bladed sai as her trademark weapon. She is a love interest of the superhero Daredevil, but her violent nature and mercenary lifestyle divide the two.
She is one of Frank Miller’s best-loved creations, and subsequent writers’ use of her is controversial as Marvel had originally promised to not resurrect the character without Miller’s permission.
She has also appeared as a supporting character of the X-Men’s Wolverine.
