In Season 2 Episode 5 of Daredevil, Ellison allows Karen to look through The Bulletin’s archives in exchange for a story on the Punisher.

To Karen’s dismay, all the digital archives were lost.

Ellison: All the servers were completely wiped in the incident. Decades, just gone. So we keep hard copies of everything now.

What incident is Ellison referring to? How did The Bulletin lose their digital archive?

1 Answer 1


I believe it was the events of the first Avengers movie. "The Incident" is referred to several times in the show, and it seems to be referring to when the Chitauri invaded New York.
