I grew up reading about Daredevil. There was something cool about a blind man with ninja warrior skills, who is out to help the little guy, gets beat up again and again, only to rise one more time. Daredevil is a symbol for what it means to not allow your fear and your limitations to “become” you.
One more reason that I love Daredevil, he is a character that dealt with depression. He is a haunted man. He lives with fear, with shadows on the inside that make him more afraid than the shadows on the outside. His shadows, his depression is something I can relate to. Daredevil can remind us that we may face enemies, and we may fall. But we can rise again. And again. And again.
