Elektra is an Olympic-level athlete and gymnast, possessing strength, speed, agility, reflexes, and endurance at the pinnacle of human performance. She is a superb hand-to-hand combatant and martial artist and ninja master.
Born and raised in Greece. While she was in college, she dated Matthew Murdock , the future Daredevil. Her father was a Greek ambassador accidentally killed by a police officer during a terrorist hostage situation, which Murdock was able to rescue Elektra from.
Following the death of her father, Elektra left America and was eventually trained as a ninja by The Hand. She went solo as an international bounty hunter, which eventually led her back into the life of Matt Murdock (now Daredevil and a lawyer. She worked for The Kingpin, but was killed by a vengeful Bullseye, who wanted his job back. She was resurrected by The Hand with Daredevil's help.
She kept her new life a secret from her heartbroken former lover for a very long time.
She later befriended Wolverine and cured him from being stuck in an animal-like form. Years afterward, she was killed a second time when Wolverine was mindcontrolled by Hydra. She was again resurrected by the Hand, which was what she had planned, so that she could lead the organization herself.
It was during her time as leader of The Hand that she was replaced by a Skrull, which was discovered by the New Avengers when they killed the impostor.
Following the Secret Invasion, the real Elektra was revealed to be alive upon one of the Skrull ships and was released following the final battle between the heroes and the Skrulls. Iron Man immediately ordered her held in protective custody at S.H.I.E.L.D. Later, Norman Osborn ordered her to be studied and monitored at H.A.M.M.E.R. to obtain information about why she seems to be the only Skrull captive showing signs of expreimentation and torture.
Her origin differs from that of the movie Elektra.
