No, the character/term appears to be something invented for the show. That said, though, there are several possibilities and we can speculate based on what we know from the comics. In the comics, Stick is a member of The Chaste - a brotherhood of warriors based out of Japan. The primary purpose of The Chaste is to oppose The Hand - a clan of evil ninjas who ...

Daredevil's enhanced senses are being depicted in the Netflix series Daredevil as both a fusion of his four remaining senses and as a limited but discrete "radar sense" which appears to Matt Murdock as "a world on fire." This is as consistent as the inconsistent depictions of his powers tend to be. Overall, the show has maintained an internal integrity in ...

Possibly, but most likely not In universe There isn't much exact information about what the suit is comprised of. This may be due to intentional vagueness from the writers. What we know for sure is that it contains alloys and carbon nanotube based allows: ... After Daredevil's first meeting with Punisher, Potter increased the durability of the suit by ...

So far, the Netflix show has been playing pretty true to the comics for Daredevil. In particular, they appear to be following the chronology from Daredevil: The Man Without Fear (in the original Daredevil, Matt's in law school when his father dies); in both cases, though, the details of Matt's origin story and powers are pretty consistent: He gets into an ...

In the comic books, it has sometimes been stated that his super-senses are so incredible that his hypersensitive fingertips can easily detect the difference between paper-with-ink-printed-on-it and paper-without-ink-on-it. After years of practice, he can quickly recognize familiar words with a sweep of his fingertips across each line of text. (I'm not sure I ...

Daredevil's powers are derived from his enhanced senses. He can hear, smell, taste, and feel things more accurately than any regular human. But he can't see. This allows him to do things like listen to conversations through walls, to hear the sound of a fist coming through the air, and to track heartbeats. The ninjas counteract these enhanced senses by ...

In-universe, he built up momentum by pointing himself downwards and diving towards Claire. Claire is positioned horizontally, so she's supposedly slowing herself down, similar to how a parachute would. He has less "resistance", so he goes faster than she does. Out-of-universe, this obviously doesn't make a ton of sense. But it's a very common occurrence in ...

Frank would not have killed the manager The Punisher's code, brutal though it may be, has always focused on killing only the guilty. While the manager may have committed some crime, certainly Frank did not know anything about him. Most likely, had the manager attempted to investigate further, or had Daredevil screamed or otherwise drawn the manager's ...

It's actually fairly common to see displays of this type, usually with a flag that was current at the time the building where the flag is displayed was completed. Over the past fifty years, I've seen them in public schools, courthouses, and police stations, just to name the ones I recall immediately. Flag code aside, whether it's "correct" or not, it's ...

There is no evidence that the suit includes vibranium, either in the transcripts or in any interviews I could find. The episode "Dogs to a Gunfight" describes Daredevil's second mask as being comprised of "near indestructible" "fortified, carbon tube" while his gloves are "reinforced alloy." Signs point to the suit not being vibranium, or at least not ...

I have no real evidence for what is clearly caused by the now infamous lack of communication between the film side of Marvel Studios and the TV side, but; It could be that the New York Bulletin is including the deaths of firefighters, police officers, paramedics etc in their statistic, whereas the figures that the Secretary of State (Thaddeus Ross) uses ...

Black Sky is not a concept/character lifted directly from the comics or any other existing Marvel media. There are two current prevailing theories linking it/him to the comics. Black Sky is an Inhuman. It is mentioned that that particular Black Sky can be replaced, just that it is not easy, as there are few others and they are difficult to find. Given ...

I guess the answer had the same spoilers as the question:

tl;dr: It's never explained; it's just a continuity/production error that got missed somewhere along the line. IMO, this scene was one of the (very rare) times the show dropped the ball this season. Matt and Elektra quite obviously face far fewer Hand than they should have, with no explanation why and very little wiggle room for us to insert out own ...

They were used for two different rituals. The "substance" being mined in The Defenders is what The Hand, and presumably the masters of K'un Lun, have been using for centuries to keep themselves alive, and what allows their resurrection to happen. What's under New York City appears to be the last major reserve of the substance outside of K'un Lun, so the ...

Although the one camera shot you describe DOES support the idea of someone watching events from within Matt's office, no further evidence or dialogue is shown that supports the idea. No further mention is made of anything missing or being out of place, nor is there any mention of the bad guys having something from the office. KAREN: How did you get in ...

This is discussed in a 2015 interview between IGN and showrunner Steven DeKnight. DeKnight's justification is that Nobu's death was basically an accident, and really more Nobu's own fault than anyone else's: DeKnight: We never wanted [Daredevil] to intentionally kill anyone; he can certainly put a guy in a coma, y'know? And with Nobu, it was more of a ...

I believe it was the events of the first Avengers movie. "The Incident" is referred to several times in the show, and it seems to be referring to when the Chitauri invaded New York.

From S01E09, "Speak of the Devil" Daredevil: I knew no one was in the building. I made that mistake with the Russians once, learned from it. Nobu: But you did not know I was here. Daredevil: No. You slowed your heart... lowered your body temperature. Nobu: The old fool has taught you in our ways. Nobu, the NYC head of the Hand, both saw ...

Overall most of the Daredevil series is original but keeping in the same trend as the comics. The most direct comic comparison is Frank Miller's run. Miller introduced the black proto-costume, and Murdock's mentor Stick. It's pretty easy to find a copy of that particular run of comics as Miller's work is quite popular. I hope this helps.

Fisk knows. While he might have suspected it in the season 2 (although he had no real reasons for that - Matt let Fisk to beat him up in prison), in the season 3 he gets proofs: 1. He sees Matt fighting in the prison during riot Matt goes to prison where Fisk used to be imprisoned to get some information about rival organisations. Fisk bribes some guards ...

Absolutely not. Vibranium's rarity makes it one of the hardest to find substances on Earth. The only known source of the material can be found in the African nation of Wakanda. Even as connected as the Kingpin was, it is unlikely he could manage to afford even a sliver of this rare material. The quote from Captain America pretty much sums up everything. ...

Lets start from the second question: Daredevil does "see" faces (sort of): so indeed he would recognize Nobu (or age of his opponent) by "looking" at his face. As to why he wouldn't recognize them earlier we can speculate: The whole purpose of Ninja uniform is to hide the identity of the person behind it. Wearing dark clothes that cover most of the ...

We aren't told what their initial goals are but their employer, Mr. Nobu is likely a nod to... Their organization: Their existence is hinted at by the appearance of Stick, the martial mentor of Matt Murdock. He is portrayed by Scott Glenn. As to their goals, one of their primary goals was to destroy The Chaste, of whom Stick was their leader and their ...

I've been wondering this as well, but have been unable to find an official answer anywhere. I've come to a conclusion based on guesswork, but obviously it involves speculation: From the first time Daredevil dons his black suit on-screen to the debut of the red suit, it appears that approximately one month of time passes in-universe. Now, here's my ...

TLDR; Daredevil's senses don't really work like sonar - a ninja trained to mask their heartbeat and movements could temporarily hide from him. Daredevil is indeed blind, but his other senses are enhanced to superhuman levels. This is a result of the accident that took his vision, but it's also the result of years of training & honing those senses. ...

First, the easy one: Elektra is special. She was not resurrected the way the others were. She was resurrected to be "the Black Sky". Alexandra explains that her memories were specifically taken away from her. They only wanted her "vessel" to be the pure power of the Black Sky. The "person" that was inside Elektra was (supposedly) gone forever. As for ...

Spoilers below for Daredevil and possibly Defenders In Season 1 of Daredevil, it is revealed that the much feared Black Sky is a little boy. After he is killed by Stick, Nobu says to Fisk, It will be difficult to locate another Black Sky. They are extremely rare. We also see that Elektra is revealed to be the second Black Sky in Season 2 of Daredevil. ...

Whatever the specific reason the 48-star flag was used in the courtroom, it is not the standard flag used in general in the Daredevil series. For example, here's a standard 50 star flag shown in season 2 episode 1, inside the police station (@09:30): Zoom of the stars: You can also make out a fragment of what looks to also be a 50 star flag in this Josie'...
