Happy Daredevil Day kids.

That's right, today the second season adventures of the Man with No Fear drops on Netflix.

No, I didn't stay up late to watch episodes, but I will be diving in later.

So, for those of you keeping track at home, Marvel's continued march to dominance now includes delivery of the second season of Daredevil, the upcoming Civil War, a release date for the first season of Luke Cage and, finally, casting of Iron Fist.  The House of Ideas continues to roll.

So, you may ask yourself, why isn't the actress playing Elektra this week's cheesecake?

The answer is simple.  I've committed to a course of action and I intend to ride this pony all the way to the shore.

How many metaphors did I mix right there.

Anyway, this week's cheesecake comes from the other side of the comic/media fence.

Please say hello to Willa Holland.

Ms. Holland is currently appearing on the CW's Arrow as Thea Queen aka Speedy, the sister of the Green Arrow and one of the Daughters of the Demon.

She's had a busy arc.

Prior to her arrival in Star City, Ms. Holland plied her trade in Legion, Straw Dogs, The O.C. and Gossip Girl.  I've seen exactly NONE of those.  Well, I did see the original Straw Dogs at a far too tender age, but that's another story for another day.

Anyway, it seems that Arrow is keeping Ms. Holland so busy that she has no additional projects lined up.  Maybe she's reforming the League of Assassins?

I don't know.

Let's hit the links.
