As some of you already know, I've become a big fan of Marvel in recent years -- primarily because of "Avengers
" and their other related film and television efforts. My personal favorite Marvel superhero is, without a doubt, Captain America
. There's just something fascinating about his down-to-earth personality that I like. He's a character you can't help admiring.
In fact, that seems to be the angle I take in all of my superhero fandom. Even in the DC universe, I side more with Green Arrow (as seen in the television series, "Arrow
"). He's a human character thrust into a good versus bad world, not because he wants to, but because he has to -- to save the city he loves. He's a superhero, without a super power.
Lately, I've become a fan of yet another superhero, Marvel's Daredevil
-- not the Ben Affleck film version, no, the Charlie Cox television version released on Netflix. There's just something remarkably compelling about a blind man using his heightened senses to fight crime on the streets of New York City at night, while fighting injustice by day as a lawyer.
If you're a fan of Marvel, superheroes, or even just a great, well-written thrill ride of a story, look for Daredevil on Netflix. Grab your popcorn and binge-watch. Season one is available in it's entirety, and it's well worth your time. Although, I will warn you, it's a darker breed of superhero. Darker.... but nonetheless addictive.
