Rogues’ Gallery: Who Is Daredevil’s Greatest Enemy? [Poll]
A hero is defined by their villains, and the world of superhero comic books is filled with some of the scariest and silliest bad guys around. Rogues’ Gallery aims to settle the score and determine who is the true arch-nemesis for some of favorite superheroes, and we need your help to do it!
Daredevil has one of the deepest rosters of diverse and deadly villains in all of superhero comic books, and his villains are known for making it much more personal than your average hero/villain relationship. However, which villain is Matt Murdock's number one nemesis?
There are two strong favorites this week in The Kingpin and Bullseye, and they've often worked together in order to bring Daredevil's life crashing down around him. Bullseye killed the great two loves of Murdock's life in Elektra and Karen Page, but The Kingpin reduced him to a shell of a man by taking away everything in his life piece by piece, and set a new standard for how meticulously cruel a hero's enemy could be.
But if a lot of the voting is split between Kingpin and Bullseye, is there's a chance for a surprise third candidate? What about The Purple Man, fresh off his star role in Netflix's Jessica Jones? Or The Hand, who played a big part in the second season of the Daredevil television series? Or even Elektra herself?
Not all of Daredevil's villains are deadly serious; he also has some of the best goofy villains, like The Jester and The Matador. Not to influence the voting but Stilt-Man is a personal favorite, and my fiancee will be unhappy if he doesn't make the cut.
Let us know who you think gets the top spot for Daredevil’s number one nemesis below, and we’ll be back in a few weeks with a countdown of his top ten best and baddest villains. You can vote for up to three selections in the poll!
