(Daredevil II#7 (fb) - BTS) - In an elaborate plot against Daredevil, Mysterio (Quentin Beck) had 16 year old Gwyneth kidnapped, drugged, and artificially inseminated. Gwyneth's parents were later murdered and she had the baby on her own.
(Daredevil II#1) - Gwyneth fled with her infant from men who pursued them. Believing she'd seen angels in a vision, Gwyneth delivered the baby to Matt Murdock, claiming the baby was the newborn messiah and that Murdock was to take care of her.
(Daredevil II#2) - Murdock delivered the baby to Black Widow (Natasha Romanova), leaving her in the heroine's care for a time. After leaving the baby with Black Widow, Matt searched for her birth records, scrolling through the birth of Brian David Zysk, with father Joseph Q. and mother Nanci D. When Black Widow tried returning the baby to Daredevil, he tossed the baby off a roof to kill it, under the influence of a strange drug. Black Widow rescued the baby and took it into her care.
(Daredevil II#4) - Black Widow took the baby to confront Daredevil who, in a hallucination, knocked Black Widow out and took the infant. He leapt from the roof with the baby, intending to kill them both, and saved them both at the last possible second. He took her to Clinton Mission Shelter, where Sister Maggie took care of the baby over the following days.
(Daredevil II#5 (fb) - BTS) - Bullseye attacked the Shelter, killing and wounding all the nuns and homeless there, including Sister Theresa and Sister Anne. Sister Maggie managed to keep the baby hidden however.
(Daredevil II#5) - Daredevil battled Bullseye as Sister Maggie and Karen Page worked to protect the baby. Bullseye ended up killing Karen and kidnapping the baby, who he turned over to Mysterio.
(Daredevil II#7 (fb) - BTS) - Mysterio placed the baby in a sound proof room with low oxygen so that Daredevil couldn't find her.
(Daredevil II#7) - Daredevil managed to rescue the baby, who didn't make a sound when Mysterio fired a gun to kill himself.
(Daredevil II#8) - The baby was turned over to the hospital and child services became involved. She was adopted out to a family in New Jersey after Matt gave her the name Karen, in honor of the deceased Karen Page.
(Daredevil: Ninja#3) - After her initial adoptive parents dropped out of the adoption process, Baby Karen was adopted by Stone and Trahn, of the Chaste. They believed her to be the reborn "Brave Hero of Japan", the reincarnation of Stick.
Comments: Created by Kevin Smith, Joe Quesada, and Jimmy Palmiotti.
It has been purported that Karen is a reincarnation of Stick, Daredevil's mentor.
