The Wrong Side: Daredevil vs. the Avengers

In this feature, I examine comic book fights that were particularly notable in the wrong side winning (or at least that the fight wasn't won the "right" way). This really isn't a big deal, of course, as it doesn't really matter if the "wrong" person won a fight. But it's fun to talk about!

If you want to suggest a fight for future inclusion in this feature, drop me a line at bcronin@comicbookresources.com. Don't suggest a fight in the comments!

Today, based on a suggestion from David P., we take a look at Daredevil taking out the Avengers...

As always, the first page spotlights their power levels and the second page examines the fight itself.

And as always, the first question we need to ask is...

How did these people do when they fought Spider-Man?

First off, let's look at Daredevil. In Amazing Spider-Man #287 (by Christopher Priest, Erik Larsen and Art Nichols), they tussle and while Spider-Man is clearly the winner of the fight, DD holds his own...

As for the Avengers, however, the team at hand is Captain America, Beast, Black Widow and Hercules. Let's not even show how Spider-Man has done against that specific team (mostly because I don't believe he has ever fought that specific team), but let's just look at how he did against ONE of those Avengers, Hercules, in the Assault on New Olympus Prologue one-shot from a few years back by Greg Pak, Fred Van Lente and Rodney Buchemi...

As you can see, just ONE of those Avengers is a formidable foe, but ALL FOUR of them?
