Frank Miller is a polarizing figure in the comics community; fans either love him or hate him. At Brazil CCXP he gave an answer to a fan's question that may make him an even more divisive creator.

Miller was answering questions about some of his prior creations, when a fan asked for his thoughts on Elektra's appearance in the Netflix series Daredevil's upcoming second season. He said that he had not seen the series, despite the fact that the show was partly based off of his ideas. He also offered his opinion on Elektra (who will be played by Elodie Yung):

They can call it whatever you want, but it will not be the real Elektra.

Miller also added "yes, I'm her father". He did create the character, who first appeared in Daredevil #168, which was released in 1981. Miller is also the author of some classic and some less-than-classic Batman comic series, and staunchly refuses to watch any Batman film because they're not the "real" Batman.

The Netflix version of Elektra is described as being a "mysterious woman from Matt Murdock's past whose dangerous and exotic ways may be more than he can handle".  Another popular Marvel character debuting this season is Punisher, who will be played by Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead). Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, and Rosario Dawson are also reprising their roles next season. The debut is rumoured to be sometime in 2016, although whether or not it will be before Luke Cage is unclear. Marco Ramirez and Doug Petrie will replace Stephen DeKnight as showrunners.
