An in-depth analysis of the psychology behind the popular character Daredevil.

In the early 1960s, Stan Lee and company revitalized the comic book market by imbuing new characters and their stories with human, emotional depth lacking in other superheroes. Among those creations was the character Daredevil. Now this superhero is the subject of 20 essays that explore different facets of his psychology, including:
  • The risk-taking behavior that earned Daredevil his name
  • The pathology of stalking, obsession, and mental manipulation
  • The process of “othering” in regards to disability
  • The question of justice versus revenge—with asides related to the assassin Elektra
