Matthew Murdock
The initial Beta Outfit of Matt Murdock
The guardian of Hell's Kitchen, and a constant thorn in Wilson Fisk's side, Matthew Murdock is a practicing attorney by day, bad-tempered vigilante by night. Really, really bad-tempered.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: A major case compared to his more mellow 616 counterpart.
  • Adaptational Relationship Overhaul: Has a much more hostile relationship with Spider-Man, compared to the long-time allies they are in mainstream canon.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: He's much more aggressive and bad-tempered as Daredevil.
  • Beta Outfit: In the miniseries, he never used the classic Daredevil costume (despite the covers). He simply used black clothing and a piece of cloth to cover his face. In the Spider-Man comics, he has moved to the classic red costume.
  • Crusading Lawyer: He chooses the unenviable task of defending the Hulk after his identity is exposed. He vociferously argues for his life and urges the jury to have mercy.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: During Ultimatum, Spidey finds him already dead while going around New York.
  • It's Personal: His crusade against Wilson Fisk, which has driven Daredevil to obsessive and dangerous lengths to take him down.
  • Jerkass: His first interaction with Spider-Man, who came to him for advice? Telling him he had no business trying to be a hero, telling him to quit, finishing with "you're lucky I don't rip that mask off and give you to the cops". To be fair, Spider-Man is a teenager and is often unprepared for the more complex issues of superheroes, though it still doesn't change the fact that Daredevil is a massive prick about it and in general.
  • Mistaken for Gay: Matt and Foggy are always together, so Phoebe had thought that they were gay.
  • Reed Richards Is Useless: Tries to avert it by having all the street-level New York superheroes team-up to kill the Kingpin.
  • Sanity Slippage: He nearly kills Vanessa Fisk, justifying it by saying it's the only thing that will get to Fisk and that Vanessa cannot be considered truly innocent as she married Wilson Fisk.
  • Super Senses
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In the miniseries, he is a good guy, even when working as a vigilante. In Ultimate Spider-Man, he is much ruder.
  • What You Are in the Dark: Is about to kill Vanessa Fisk, but when push comes to shove, he will not kill an innocent woman.

    Elektra Natchios
A former friend of Matt Murdock, who has become Wilson Fisk's top assassin.

  • Adaptational Villainy: She never reforms, staying an assassin.
  • Badass Normal: Has no powers to speak of yet still is a dangerous combatant
  • Beta Outfit: Her initial outfit was just black trousers, a top, and a bandana. She initially kept it in Ultimate Spider-Man, and later moved to the classic one.
  • Boobs of Steel: Rather large, very much on display breasts (which Peter doesn't fail to notice) and also one of the best fighters in the series.
  • Hate at First Sight: Elektra and Trey hated each other since their first encounter, and things only escalated from there.
  • Hero of Another Story: Was the star of her own spin-off series with Daredevil, showing her journey to villainhood.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Her initial outfit consists of a black top and jeans and red bandana.
  • Start of Darkness
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: She was thrown out a multi-story window by Black Cat and landed on a police car after Moon Knight threw a blade at the back of her neck. However, Jean DeWolfe confirmed that she was still alive and was in a coma. She hasn't shown up since.

    Phoebe Mc Allister

    Melissa Beckerman 
  • Rape as Drama: Elektra's descent into becoming an assassin started with Melissa being raped by Trey.

The sensei of Elektra. She also trained Phoebe and Melissa in her dojo.

    Foggy Nelson 
Matt's best friend and roomie.

    Stavros Natchios 

    Trey Langstrom 
The jerk jock of the campus. His father is an influential politician, who makes sure that he is never punished by the college or the police.
