The Hand's Disguise

"I drove them out of New York once before."
"Oh, no, you didn't. The Yakuza never left. They just hibernated and watched you take out all of their enemies. Now, New York is ripe for the taking, and they plan on getting to the top of the hill first."
Matt Murdock and Elektra[src]
