Daredevil And The Minority Report!!

Fake news:

"Death detector"??



Well, this presents kind of a moral and philosophical quandary. Is the machine predicting/seeing the future? Analyzing a persons psychology--or soul, if you will? If it says yellow, does that mean that you absolutely can never, ever commit a murder--or is that just a reading of you now? Can you be yellow one day, but red the next when the Cubs blow a three run lead in the 9th inning?
You know how this really works? Because the newspapers told us!

Yes, the press never, ever plays up anything that turns out not to be true!! Cough. Cough.

Well, a thug murders the professor, so the device result in his being caught for murder!!

Somewhere, Professor Erskine is saying, "Join the club, Professor Roe!"

But Daredevil now has the device, and uses it to flush him out!!

Well, what happened to the device? Why is there still murder?

Daredevil, at the government's request, turned the death detector over to the FBI. And it was never, ever heard of again. Ever.

It's probably rotting in some warehouse along with the Ark Of The Covenant...

From Daredevil Comics #5 (1941)
