You can see that a lot of work was done on this page, panels cut out and enlarged or reworked, lettering changed, etc. DAREDEVIL #1 had a traumatic birthing process.

FIRE REVEALS ITSELF IN EVIL SHAPE OF MAGNIR AND BRONA - BUT
Stan calls for some art adjustments in panel 4:
MAKE SIF YOUNGER LOOKING
SHOULDN’T THIS BE A FIST?
He also added in Balder’s thought balloon in that panel after the fact.
