Who is DC's Daredevil? (Not including Batman)

#1 Posted by SpideyIvyDaredevilFan26 (6482 posts) - - Show Bio

I realize that someone did a similar thread to this about Spider-Man so I figured that I should start one about my 2nd fav Marvel superhero, Daredevil. Batman would be the obvious choice, so I'm excluding him. So...Who else?

Dr mid-nite has some similarities to Daredevil. Dr mid-nite was created in the golden age.

Green Lanterns are chosen based on their lack of fear which is the opposite of willpower, a Green Lantern's source of power.

Therefore, I would say the concept of Daredevil, "the man without fear," would closely mirror the concept of the Green Lantern Corps.

Based on the character's abilities however, I would say Nightwing. They're both acrobats sportin' escrima sticks.

@Vance Astro:

Nightwing feels a little too tongue in cheek for DD.

Dr. Mid-Nite is way too laid back for DD.

I'm not so sure, actually.

For now I say Nightwing, but I'm not so sure he fits the bill.

Nah Nightwing is not much of a Badass compared to DD.

Nightwing based on abilities and talents. But based on personality I would say....maybe Hal Jordan.

I don't think he's less serious I just think he's less hardcore, sometimes DD is bordering on the same mentality of the Punisher but he always catches himself before he goes to far. I think it's just a difference in how they were raised and trained. Matt is more willing to cross certain lines than Nightwing.

Yeah Nightwing makes sense but I reeeeaaalllyyy like your G.L. reasoning. I hadn't even thought of that. Nice thinking outside the box.

Thanks man! I appreciate the props. Yeah, I had that idea floating in my head for a while and even made a DC Universe Online character named "Hal Murdock." He's a Green Lantern who looks like Daredevil and uses two-handed weapons (specifically for the batons or escrimas.) He also uses acrobatics instead of flight like a typical Green Lantern would. I got the idea after reading Blackest Night: Green Lantern and seeing Scarecrow deputized as a Yellow Lantern.

I always thought that would be a cool concept for DC or Marvel to work with if they ever did another amalgamation crossover event. Green Lantern was mixed with Iron Man before to create Iron Lantern. I thought that was pretty cool, but I would have liked Green Lantern's mix to be more thematic (kind of like Doctor Fate and Doctor Strange = Dr. Strangefate.) So in that aspect I thought Daredevil would've been perfect.

Have to agree! Based on abilities, counterpart has to be Grayson. With maybe a tinge of Jason Todd?

The Question (Vic) x3......x5? Throw in Wildcat (Ted)? And Ted Kord for the high flying acrobatics.......

O.K. Nightwing :/

But in General Green Lantern has a faith in the system. Even though it is weaken doing his team up with Green Arrow. He still believes in the system. Matt Murdock is Daredevil because he knows the system will sometimes fail and not always do the right thing. In that sense they are very different.
