Who is Daredevil's closest Superhero friend?

#1 Posted by Strider92 (16605 posts) - - Show Bio

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?

#2 Posted by Superguy0009e (2265 posts) - - Show Bio

Spider-Man has always been close to him.

#3 Posted by Mega_spidey01 (3078 posts) - - Show Bio

spider-man.

Spider-Man, definitely.

#5 Posted by ComicKID777 (287 posts) - - Show Bio

spider-man, iron fist.

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).

Luke Cage for the mention as well.

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

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.........

Not "BFFL" but he's relied on Reed Richards a good few times in court.

Ben Urich anyone? Not superhero, but I can't imagine one without the other.

We're talking about friend here.As far as that goes I don't think anybody's done it more than Black Widow.

And therefore nobody has mention him. Pretty simply. The questions wasn't who is DD's closes ally or friend. But superhero fried.

That is a pretty new friendship and nowhere near a best friend or close ally.

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 thought Iron Fist, and Luke Cage were best friends, plus JOhnny Storm was best Friends with SPidey (+)

#26 Posted by SpideyIvyDaredevilFan26 (6503 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd say Iron Fist or Elektra. Spidey's pretty high up there too.

#27 Posted by THORSON (2446 posts) - - Show Bio

PUNISHER

#28 Posted by evilvegeta74 (4530 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd say any hero that deals with street level crime on a daily basis except Moon Knight!

#29 Posted by Vance Astro (91261 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd have to say Spider-Man. He's pretty good friends with Iron Fist but Danny's best friend is Cage. As superheroes, Spider-Man & Daredevil has an extensive history together.

Spidey.

I think Spider-Man is. I think Iron Fist is as well. I remember Black Widow and Daredevil were a couple at one point in time.

#32 Posted by PassionFlower (960 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd say Spider Man, Cage, Iron Fist, Electra

#33 Posted by Stronger (4948 posts) - - Show Bio

It either Spider-man,Iron Fst or Luke Cage.

Some people could say even Captain America.

#34 Posted by IrishX (2395 posts) - - Show Bio

It's definitely Spider-Man but if we are mentioning Elektra and Black Widow then Echo should be mentioned as well.

#35 Posted by Backflip (2266 posts) - - Show Bio

Iron Fist did masquerade as him during Civil War.... But yeah Spiderman

#36 Posted by Decoy Elite (30041 posts) - - Show Bio

Spider-Man for sure.

Outside of superheroes the answer is Foggy Nelson for those that care.

#37 Posted by Overseer (404 posts) - - Show Bio

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.

Again why?

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.

Surprised at how little Iron Fist there is.
