Exactly, Daredevil was a character who's actions had consequences when the tone was dark. A swashbuckling DD goes against those consequences unless it's the result of a mental breakdown.
Or a mix of denial plus refusal to dwell on the past. People refuse to be depressed or refuse to be miserable in the face of bad circumstances all the time; doesn't mean they've necessarily had a breakdown.
But Waid may play it that way, and I'll buy his explanation either way. But let's not act like Matt hasn't done this before.
