20 Mind-Blowing Facts About Daredevil

What role did the Man WIthout Fear play in creating The Avengers?

Created by Stan Lee and Bill Everett in 1964, Daredevil is one of the original superheroes to come out of the House of Ideas alongside the likes of Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the Incredible Hulk. However, he's never quite achieved the iconic status that those heroes did, spending years as a swashbuckling superhero who no one was really all that interested in. That all changed in the 1980s when up and coming writer/artist Frank Miller saved Daredevil from cancellation and crafted one of the most critically acclaimed and beloved runs in comic book history. In the process, he transformed the Man Without Fear into someone many now call Marvel's Batman. And, despite a rough patch in the '90s (not a good decade for any character), that's what Daredevil has been, as blind lawyer Matt Murdock and his enhanced senses have opened the door to a darker type of storytelling in the Marvel Universe. With a wildly popular and unanimously praised series on Netflix now behind him, and another confirmed to be on its way to the online streaming service, it looks like Daredevil is about to go from being Marvel's most underrated character to one of their most beloved. Here, you will find just twenty of the most mind-blowing facts about Daredevil. Whether it's the unexpected role he played in creating other famous comic book characters, the strange things his mental problems have made him to do, and the shocking crime which inspired Frank Miller, these will totally change how you view Daredevil moving forwards...
