Satanic Daredevil

#1 Posted by Oddity (16 posts) - - Show Bio

At first appearance I assumed Daredevil was a devil worshiper. Some say he's Catholic. If he is Catholic then why does he dress up like the devil?

He is a Catholic who dresses ironically for the dual purpose of acting as the heroic guardian of Hell's Kitchen and because he was teasingly called 'Daredevil' by other kids when he was growing up because he never did anything risky (by order of his father).  Rest assured, friend, he's pretty damned far from being an actual devil, a demon or a devil-worshipper.

So he dresses like the devil because he was teased as a kid? Good thing they didn't call him a fairy or I guess he would dress like Tinker Bell.

I don't think he's a practicing Catholic. He every so often confesses in a confessional.

He's actually a die-hard Catholic. His mother is even a nun. 
 
And PowerHerc pretty much said it all. It's also an homage to his father's nickname he used in the Boxing Ring- Jack "The Devil" Murdock.

Good thing his father's nickname wasn't Jack "The Hitler" Murdock.
