Elektra is perhaps one of the least clad assassins in the Marvel universe and as an 80s child [her very first appearance is in 1981] I am not entirely surprised. I think that she cemented her place in the fans' hearts with that memorable red number and not because she is that great of a character like say Psylocke [who is as minimally clad], but has more of a head spinning background. I may be wrong [please Daredevil and Elektra readers, prove me wrong], but the movie Elektra was just shuddering... However, Marvel did up her coolness levels with a few notches, giving Elektra a set of lethal weapon skills and a few years experience with the Hand. Searching the web, I even found out that Elektra has a few psychic abilities, which make me interested in her more than I ever was.
