Just out of plain curiosity. I don't follow DD much but he seems kind of a loner even when he was dragged onto the New Avengers. Every character seems to have a superhero they are closer to than most Ms. Marvel and Spider-woman for example so who is Daredevil's closest friend in the superhero community?
Who is Daredevil's closest Superhero friend?
As others have already pointed out, he's pretty good friends with Spider-Man. He's also had pretty close relationships with Black Widow and Elektra (though I'm not sure if the latter counts as a "superhero" or not, though she's definitely an anti-hero).
Spider-Ma:n I believe this was his first encounter with a another superhero it happened around issue 14 I think. It is found in Daredevil MMW volume 2 (of cause they fight they quickly became friends though). Spider-man also outed DD early on (by a mistake) and Matt had to get a two civilian lives the other being his fake twin brother Mike Murdock.
Black Widow: Also a love interest for Matt. They worked together as a duo in San Fransisco.
Elektra: Was introduced as an old college girlfriend. They have team up on several occasions.
Luke Gage and Iron Fist: think this goes back before Frank Miller, but I'm not sure. It was brought back into play again by Bendis' after have been out for several years.
Punisher: Even though they have teamed up on some occasions they have also been in a lot of fights due to Punisher's killings and Daredevils no killing rule.
If somebody has anything to add or correct please feel free to do so.
friends? either Spider-Man or Luke Cage.
I think it might be Luke Cage now because of OMD. Not sure if Dare Devil even knows Spidey's secret Identity anymore.
Ironfist gets an honorable mention as well.
Punisher is more of a frienemey
Elektra is the ex-girlfriend
In the recent Daredevil runs its been Luke Cage & Iron Fist but closets of all time is definitely Spidey
Elektra. Has Luke, Fist, or Spidey ever sucked DD's little d? I hope not...
We're talking about friend here.As far as that goes I don't think anybody's done it more than Black Widow.
Ben Urich anyone? Not superhero, but I can't imagine one without the other.
And therefore nobody has mention him. Pretty simply. The questions wasn't who is DD's closes ally or friend. But superhero fried.
I'd say Black Cat.....hes had his horns near her lady parts. Besides her maybe Iron Fist, Cap has been a friend, cept that time he got whacked out on ice and tried to chop his head off with the shield.........
That is a pretty new friendship and nowhere near a best friend or close ally.
@daredevil21134: That's good. Nobody wants Hawkeye's sloppy seconds. That guy gets around.
Well unfortunately he din't beat him to her.But he beat all the others lol
I got this from Black Widow's page:
Relationship with Daredevil
Black Widow's relationship with Hawkeye ended when Natasha resumed her identity as the Black Widow. She told him that she wanted to pursue a solo career and had to break it off with him. She became an all new Black Widow, changing her costume into an all black color. She became a vigilante and fought against common criminals in New York. Eventually Natasha would be reunited with Ivan when he comes to America, Ivan served as Natasha’s chauffeur and would occasionally give her advice. While working in New York, Natasha would encounter Daredevil.
Either we've got the Hawkeye/Daredevil thing mixed up or we have a wiki to edit, gentlemen.
I would say Spider-Man though, it's my POV that DD is the Captain America/Cyclops of the Street Level heroes of all Marvel.
How is that? And what do you exactly mean by this? DD is more a hell kitchen protector than somebody that cares about crime at larger plan. DD: Father gives a good insight into this subject.
@tupiaz: I mean I see DD as the leader figure of the street level heroes like Spidey, Cage, Moon Knight etc. Feel free to disagree but I that's how I always saw him.
DD has more or less always (except the time he was in San Francisco for a couple of years) been based in Hell's Kitchen. Sometimes he has shown very little interest in helping other superheroes in other neighbourhoods (see DD: Father for instance). In recent years he has more received help from Cage and Spider-Man (for instance the Out story). DD has friends and allies but that doesn't mean he is the leader of the street level fighters nor a mentor. When he has gotten help or helped others it has been more about using different kind of skills than anything else.
After Infinity Crusade, Daredevil used the doppleganger Magus sent after him to fake his death. (Kingpin found his identity.) He changed his costume, started wearing body armor.
Spider-Man was still the one that went to him for help, and to remind him who he was and why he needed to come back.
Not to make light of Spider-Man's friendship with Human Torch, but DD would probably head to Spider-Man first if he needed a friend.
