Despite his book having been home to some of the most respected writers (Creator/StanLee, Creator/FrankMiller, Creator/AnnNocenti, Creator/KevinSmith, BrianMichaelBendis, EdBrubaker, and MarkWaid) and artists (Klaus Janson, John Romita Jr, Alex Maleev, Bill Sienkiewicz and David Mazzucchelli) in the business, Daredevil has never really succeeded in making the breakthrough into mainstream popular culture in the way that stablemates such as Franchise/SpiderMan and the Comicbook/{{X-Men}} have, and he was generally considered to be at best a C-list character until Creator/FrankMiller took over the title in 1981 and introduced what are now considered to be some of the defining elements of the Daredevil mythos, including the characters of ComicBook/TheKingpin (originally a ''Spider-Man'' villain), Bullseye, and ComicBook/{{Elektra}}.

* RoguesGalleryTransplant: It's often been pointed out that most of Daredevil's villains are someone else's "castoffs". While Electro earned his spurs fighting Franchise/SpiderMan, he was also the first supervillain Daredevil defeated, and returned to tangle with Matt on a semi-regular basis. Daredevil would also have one-off fights with other villains, such as Klaw (an enemy of the Comicbook/BlackPanther), the Absorbing Man (an enemy of Comicbook/TheMightyThor), the Blob and Pyro (enemies of the ComicBook/{{X-Men}}), and Nitro (an enemy of ComicBook/CaptainMarVell).

Added DiffLines:

* SupernaturalFearInducer: Daredevil foe Mister Fear is able to use his fear gas to instill unrelenting terror in his victims. In lesser doses, he can induce a constant feeling of paranoia (as opposed to all-out screaming terror) which can be far more deadly in the long run.

** It's happening again with Matt's wife Milla Donovan, who had to suffer through Daredevil's secret identity being leaked to the press, Matt being sent to jail, and then driven crazy by Mr. Fear to the point of being in a near catatonic state, so far, beyond any chance of recovery.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Retcon}}: A pretty minor one, all things considered, but Frank Miller retconned what age Matt was when his father was killed. Originally, he was already in college. In Frank Miller's miniseries, ''Daredevil: The Man Without Fear'', Matt is younger, and is instead in 12th grade. So instead of his father pressuring him to be important and Matt studying and then enrolling in law right before his father died, Matt was pressured to study and picked law... but didn't necessarily ''have'' to follow through, since he had already acted as a vigilante at the time and his father was dead.

** Though his powers tend to vary based on the writer, generally speaking, Daredevil can tell you're standing near him and wearing a tee shirt and jeans. He just can't tell what color the shirt is, or if it has anything written on it.

After a long stretch of very dark stories, Creator/MarkWaid's lighter take --spanning two volumes between 2011 and 2015-- was well-received by critics and audiences alike. Creator/CharlesSoule will take over the title with a new volume in late 2015 during the ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel initiative -- perhaps due to the success of the Netflix series, his run seems to be DarkerAndEdgier in contrast to Waid's, even giving him a new black costume similar to the one he wears on the show.
