You know, if she thought about it, she would have realized that DD couldn’t have killed her father as he would have been a child as well. Introduced in Daredevil (Vol. 2) #9 (1999) by David Mack and Joe Quesada, the deaf Maya Lopez’s father was a Native American of the Cheyenne Nation and secretly a mob enforcer working for the Kingpin. Kingpin and himself were good friends but after he outlived his usefulness, Kingpin had him killed but not before he made Kingpin promise to look at his daughter. Maya would find his body and he would touch her face with his bloody hand, leaving a handprint on her face. She was taken in by Kinpgin (not knowing he had killed her father) and he eventually learnt of her ability to copy anything she sees.
Kingpin eventually used her in his plan of revenge against Matt Murdock. He arranged for them to meet, and the pair would eventually fall in love. Kingpin would make Maya believe that it was Daredevil that killed her father and Maya would track DD down. She would win against DD but he revealed the truth to her, which made her go to Kingpin and shoot him in the face, blinding him. She would leave the city and go on a journey of self-discovery. She later took on the mantle of Ronin and sent to spy on the Hand and Elektra, who was leading the clan, in Japan. She would be rescued by the New Avengers, joining the team but would remain in Japan to spy on the Hand and Hydra, who would want to form an alliance. However, he was eventually killed and resurrected by the Hand, but she was saved from their corruption by the New Avengers.
She would kill Elektra, only for her to be revealed as a Skrull. She would return with the New Avengers to America and would become involved in the World War Hulk and Secret Invasion. She would leave the team and would later help Moon Knight in Los Angelous. She would later be one of many heroes that would be selected to take part in a contest to determine the next host of the Phoenix, which she won. After being sent to the Heroes Reborn universe, she would rejoin the Avengers and fight against the Multiversal Masters of Evil.
Echo is a character that people have been requesting for a while. While she hasn’t gotten a figure of her yet, the Hasbro 2-pack Ronin could be used for her.
