To his friend...

Because if there were ever a superhero that's grounded in reality,
it's DAREDEVIL.

  1. I mean, it's not like SUPERheroes are supposed to be SUPER or anything.

  2. It is a well-known fact, that being exposed to nuclear waste will always grant you superpowers! Instead of cancer, sores and a hideous death. In the Marvel Universe, they don't have any problem with disposal, they sell it on e-bay to people who want an Origin.

  3. What are DC or Marvel superheros who are just people?
    * Batman [infinite money.. LAME]
    * Formerly John Constantine [demon blood? LAME]
    * ...

  4. In European comics you often have heros who are just adventurers, often without extensive resources.

  5. Yeah, like Judge Dredd. Or Desperate Dan, or Dennis the Menace and Gnasher.

    Wait, is Gnasher considered a resource?

  6. Just fighting a cult of undead ninja assassins, no bigs.

  7. Does he mean the Marvel Daredevil, or the Golden Age Daredevil?

  8. In fiction, being blind ALWAYS gives you super powers! I mean, you've got ou've got Daredevil, Zato-Ichi, Toph, Shew, Eli, Doctor Mid-Nite, Kenshi, Rutger Hauer, Master Stick, Master Po... I know I'm missing a few.

  9. That's why I read Archie. None of that super power bs.

  10. Booster Gold has no super powers, unless being from the future counts. And there's Karate Kid, the only Legion member without super powers.

  11. I think this young fellow mistakes "suffering from multiple pretty much senseless problems, as well as being blind, which looks cool for angsty teenagers" for "realistic". Sadly, it's a common mistake.

  12. What do you mean? I know LOADS of blind people who are super heroes! They're just ... out of town right now. Fighting the Kingpin...

  13. But Daredevil has a superpower. His Sonar makes him marginally less blind than he should be.

  14. A lot of teens seem to think "gritty and violent" is the same as "realistic." I remember back in the '90s, some boys thought Mortal Kombat was realistic.

  15. Also, if he wants to see a superhero comic that's actually realistic, he should read Twilight Guardian.

  16. @SallyP:

    I thought they dumped it down storm drains that are occupied by independent characters.

    @TB Tabby:

    You mean people _don't_ spurt pixels out of their necks when their heads are ripped off? My life has no meaning anymore...

    @TB Tabby again:

    Does that have anything to do with beating people up before they can buy cheesy tween novels about waah-mpires?

  18. And today’s kids don’t know that before /TMNT/ was a bad cartoon, it was a good cartoon.
