* LivingLieDetector: He can determine if someone is lying by listening to their heartbeat.

to:

* LivingLieDetector: He By listening, feeling and/or smelling, he can determine if someone tell whether a person is lying by listening sweat, changes in body temperature and heartbeats (though he can be fooled by a pacemaker and those able to their heartbeat.keep calm under pressure.)



* ThouShaltNotKill: He tries to abide by this, but unlike most superheroes, he will kill when there are no alternatives.

to:

* SuperReflexes: Possibly due to his exposure to the radioactive waste that caused his blindness, Matt's reflexes is enhanced to the degree where he is quick enough to catch catches a sai thrown by Bullseye, easily dodge gunfire, dodges point-blank gunfire when his back was turned, easily and repeatedly deflect point blank gun shots.
* SuperSenses: Although he is blind, his remaining four senses function with superhuman accuracy and sensitivity, giving him abilities far beyond the limits of a sighted person.
** He have a radar sense that he has described as "like touching everything at once". It is a form of echolocation via low radio wave projection, according to one theory, an energy wave within certain portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. The signal emanates radio waves from regions of his brain, after which it travels outward, bounces off objects around him, and returns to receiving regions of his brain as well as use of his superhuman hearing. In any event, with this ability, Murdock synthesizes a very close analogue of three-dimensional 360% human sight.
** His sense of touch is so acute that his finger can feel the faint impressions of ink on a printed page allowing him to read by touch, though laminated pages prevent him from touching and thus reading the ink impressions at a much faster pace than a normal person would be able to read. The rest of his skin is equally sensitive, enabling him by concentration to feel minute temperature and pressure changes in the atmosphere around him. Even with his senses of smell and hearing blocked, he can feel the presence of a person standing five feet away from him simply by his or her body heat and disturbance of air
** His sense of hearing enables him to detect an acoustic pressure change of one decibel at a pressure level of seven decibels (whereas the lowest threshold for average human hearing is twenty decibels.) He can hear a person's heartbeat at a distance of over twenty feet, or people whispering on the other side of a standard soundproofed wall. Through practice, Matt is able to control his hearing acuity, mentally blocking out specific sounds like his own breathing and heartbeat, all ambient sounds to a normal human level of perception, or all sounds but a particular sound he is concentrating upon.
** His sense of smell is so acute that he can distinguish between identical twins at twenty feet by minute differences in smell. He can detect odors of an atmospheric concentration of thirty parts per million. Further, his ability to remember smells enables him to identify any person he has spent at least five minutes with by smell alone, no matter how he or she might try to camouflage his or her natural odor. His powers of concentration are such that he can focus upon a single person's smell and follow it through a crowd of people at a distance of fifty feet
* ThouShaltNotKill: He tries Matt used to abide by this, have a typical view of killing, claiming that it wasn't his place to pass judgment, but unlike most superheroes, he will kill has killed when there are no alternatives.the situation called for it. And when the situation has called for it, he has hated but not regretted doing it. That said, he does not endorse wholesale murder as the answer to his, or anyone else's, problems.
** [[spoiler: Well and truly averted after he finally killed Bullseye.]]



* WeaksauceWeakness: His main weakness is his vulnerability to powerful sounds or odors that can temporarily weaken his radar sense. This weakness is often used to immobilize him.



%%* BadassGrandpa




to:

* SuperSenses: Stick possessed a "Radar" that enabled him to perceive the shapes and locations of objects in his vicinity despite his blindness. The limits of his "radar sense" are unknown, but it was more acute even than Daredevil's "radar sense."

* BullyingADragon: He's a tough guy and a genuine threat when he's going up against normal unpowered humans, badass normals, or even ''very'' low-level superhumans, but if he makes the mistake of getting too arrogant and seriously stepping out of his weight class, he's in trouble. He did this during Civil War, when he tried to kill American Eagle. American Eagle, for those who don't know it, is a super-powered and very no-nonsense Native American who even Iron Man knows better than to mess with. American Eagle didn't even break a sweat while beating Bullseye to a bloody mess. Bullseye shows that he is often incapable of learning from experience, as this happens to him a lot. Deadpool was once a half-inch away from cutting him up with a chainsaw before Bullseye managed to talk his way out of it.

* BlackMagic: Fond of this.

to:

* BlackMagic: Fond of this. Upon the mutinous murder of Yoshioka (first ''father'' of the group), the Snakeroot ninja clan took control of the Hand and corrupted it by imposing the cult of a demon known as The Beast, which imparted them with dark magic. One of these black spells causes a Hand ninja's lifeless body to return to dust and prevent another from directly gazing at the Beast itself.



* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Played dead straight.

to:

* ConservationOfNinjutsu: Played dead straight. The group is almost nothing but cannon fodder. The willingness to die seems to be more important in membership consideration than skill, considering how many hundreds (perhaps thousands) of these guys characters like ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} and ComicBook/{{Elektra}} have waded through. These were, at least in part, the inspiration for the Foot Clan, below.
** Their earliest appearances, during Frank Miller's run on ''ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}'', more or less codified the trope. Daredevil and Elektra would periodically face whole armies of Hand mooks and win fairly easily, then the Hand threw a few elite swordsmen at them and gave them a serious fight, and a little after that they produced a named super-ninja for a downright difficult boss fight.
** The trope was later somewhat handwaved in a ''Wolverine'' comic "...[the {{mooks}}] have to be careful they don't chop one of their own by mistake. While I can hit anyone I please."
*** Speaking of Wolverine, the Hand brutally averted this one once by ambushing him with enough ninja to cripple his movement and leave him defenseless, allowing the Gorgon to chop his head off. He gets better, then plays the trope straight for six issues of glorious payback that practically wiped the ninja clan out.

* TheUndeadTheUndead: Members of the Hand are practitioners of powerful occult magic and can murder a person and bring that person back to life as a servant of the Hand.

!! Eric Slaughter

A old school crimelord Matt sometimes tangled with.

* AffablyEvil: All in all he's very reasonable and levelheaded.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Slaughter correctly antecipates pretty much every ambush Elektra or Daredevil set up for him.
* EvilCripple: He has a noticeable limp, and thus walks with a cane.
* EvilOldFolks: Eric's ancient.
* TheDon: A classic archetype old-school mobster.
* GloryDays: He sometimes expresses fondness for the old days, when mobsters had style and honor, as befitting his image of classic TheDon.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Eric ''Slaughter''.
* NobleDemon: Eric is a ruthless crimelord, but it's sometimes shown he has his own code of honor. Once he refused to attack Daredevil after Bullseye set a trap for him, because it wouldn't have been fair.
* PragmaticVillainy: Slaughter's entirely concerned with profit only, and the moment anything stops being profitable he'll just drop it and walk away.
* WorthyOpponent: He holds a grudging respect for Daredevil.

Added DiffLines:

* CloudCuckooLander: DependingOnTheWriter, he's often potrayed as such due his inexplicable one-track obsessioon with owls and making himself similar to them.


Added DiffLines:

* DoNotCallMePaul: In most portrayals, ''do not'' call him Owsley. His ''name'' is '''The Owl'''.


Added DiffLines:

* FromNobodyToNightmare: He was a corrupt but otherwise unremarkable Wall Street mogul, but after charges of corruption were brought against him, Owsley decided to become a criminal mastermind. He turned out to be exceedingly good at it.


Added DiffLines:

* KnowledgeBroker: Oftentimes his specific niche in New York's crime scene is knowledge (as befitting the owl motifs). He controls the flow of information.


Added DiffLines:

* UnderestimatingBadassery: On the receiving end. Daredevil, more often than not, treats him as a minor nuisance and doesn't really give him his full attention. [[AxCrazy This always proves to be highly unwise]].


Added DiffLines:

* VillainsNeverLie: The Owl has a admitted distaste for lies, so he tends to be straight with Daredevil. Which of course doesn't impede him from using FromACertainPointOfView to his favor.
