** Purple Man (aka Zebediah Killgrave) might not have the most intimidating moniker, but he more than makes up for it with what he does. During his first outing he took control of Matt's girlfriend, Karen Page, and tried to rape her. He's only gotten worse since. Later on, revamped by Creator/BrianMichaelBendis in his series ''ComicBook/{{Alias}}'' into an amoral sociopath, Killgrave defeated the young superheroine Jessica Jones and made her his mental slave, forcing her to watch him commit crimes and assist him, while he heaped physical, verbal and mental abuse on her, but stopped short of outright rape because she "wasn't worthy" of him. Not content with humiliating her, he forced her to watch him do things like mentally order people to stop breathing when it annoyed him. He forced Jessica to stand at his bedside and watch as he used his powers to [[SerialRapist date rape women]], helpless to do anything about it. Killgrave is what happens when you give someone who thinks ItsAllAboutMe is a code to live by, remove any empathy for other beings, and give them mind control powers and a serious desire to hurt others.

* BetterOnDVD: The director's cut is far preferred over the theatrical cut.

to:

* BetterOnDVD: The director's cut is film's reception markedly improved with the release of the Director's Cut, which restored 30 minutes of footage, including an entire missing subplot, and placed emphasis on aspects of Daredevil's character that went underrepresented in theaters, particularly his Catholicism and his skills as a lawyer. As a result, the movie gained far preferred over more defenders than it did the first time around, and has effectively replaced the theatrical cut.cut as the definitive version, with Fox not even bothering to bring the original to Blu-ray.



** All-American Jennifer Garner as a Greek? Indian-American Erick Avari as her father? Huh? At least Micheal Clarke Duncan as the Kingpin makes sense: regardless of skin color, he's ''huge'' and [[ScaryBlackMan intimidating]], and that's what's important.

** Matt and Elektra's first kiss is set in the rain, and the logic is that even though Daredevil is blind, his super hearing lets him "see" everything when it rains, because acoustics or something. And so whenever he's making out in the rain, he can "see" the person he's making out with because raindrops are bouncing off the person's face. The result is that through Matt's "echolocation", Elektra looks like a [[Film/{{Avatar Na'vi]].

** Soule's run: Many fans were overjoyed at the announcement that in the new series Matt was reinstated as a lawyer in New York, Foggy's cancer was seemingly cured, and his civilian identity was a secret once more, but thanks to it being a consequence of ''Secret Wars,'' some fans felt it reeked a bit of the ResetButton being used.

** [[MadArtist Muse]] is a deranged SerialKiller obsessed with sharing his "vision" of beauty with the whole world. First kidnapping over 100 innocent people, Muse strings them up and constantly drains them of their blood, leaving them near-death, and uses said blood to paint a giant mural in a public location. Later, after murdering close to a dozen [[ComicBook/TheInhumans Inhumans]] and posing their bodies, Muse kidnaps 4 people and plans to [[ColdBloodedTorture torture them to death]], starting by [[EarAche lopping off one's ear]], then captures Daredevil's sidekick, Blindspot, whose [[EyeScream eyes he gouges out]] as a sick play on the young teen's name. Muse's lair is a nightmarish museum of depravity and agony, as it displays piles of skulls, heads on pikes, butchered corpses, and removed organs hanging from strings, all gathered throughout his months of murdering civilians. In the end, Muse tries to fatally wound his hundred blood-drained captives to distract Daredevil while he makes his escape, and, even when caught, refuses to show regret, empathy, or guilt for what his atrocities, displaying nothing by gleeful passion at how "artistic" his story has turned out to be.

** Purple Man (aka Zebediah Killgrave) might not have the most intimidating moniker, but he more than makes up for it with what he does. During his first outing he took control of Matt's girlfriend, Karen Page, and tried to rape her. He's only gotten worse since. Later on, revamped by Creator/BrianMichaelBendis in his series ''ComicBook/{{Alias}}'' into an amoral sociopath, Killgrave defeated the young superheroine Jessica Jones and made her his mental slave, forcing her to watch him commit crimes and assist him, while he heaped physical, verbal and mental abuse on her, but stopped short of outright rape because she "wasn't worthy" of him. Not content with humiliating her, he forced her to watch him do things like mentally order people to stop breathing when it annoyed him. He forced Jessica to stand at his bedside and watch as he used his powers to [[SerialRapist date rape women]], helpless to do anything about it. Killgrave is what happens when you give someone who thinks ItsAllAboutMe is a code to live by, remove any empathy for other beings, and give them mind control powers and a serious desire to hurt others. And then he was adapted to the screen in ''Series/JessicaJones2015'', where David Tennant's portrayal of the character is the stuff of nightmares.
