Character Profiles: Daredevil vs Red Robin

I did one of these for the Darkseid vs Silver Surfer poll and figured I'd continue that little tradition for those of you that read this blog that are not huge comic nerds like the rest of us - lol!


Well, first of all, if you don't know who Daredevil is, there is little hope for you in the comic world.

Daredevil is superhero in the Marvel Comics universe that was created by Stan Lee and Bill Everett. His first appearance was in April 1964 in Daredevil #1. He is based out of New York City, specifically the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood.

He is blind but has extremely heightened senses due to the accident that blinded him. He has a kind of radar sense and has a superhuman athletic ability.

Red Robin

Red Robin is the new persona of Batman's 3rd Robin, also known as Tim Drake.

Tim Drake was created by Marv Wolfman and Pat Broderick. His 1st appearance in comics was in August 1989 in Batman #436. His 1st appearance as Red Robin was in August 2009 in Red Robin #1.

Tim/Red Robin does not actually have any "super" powers to speak of but has many skills. He is a master of martial arts, has a high intellect and has detective skills that rival his mentor, Batman. He is highly educated in computer systems, engineering, genetics, and is known to possess excellent leadership skills.
