The Wrong Side? – Daredevil vs. Wolverine

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, I’m going to try something a little bit different. A few months back I got a bunch of different e-mails suggesting a certain Daredevil/Wolverine fight from the Enemy of the State Wolverine storyline.

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…

(They also fought during The Death of Jean DeWolff, but let’s not talk about that now – that could be the basis of its own column)

In Spider-Man Vs. Wolverine #1, ALSO by Christopher Priest (with art by M.D. Bright and Al Williamson), Wolverine takes a beating from Spider-Man but holds on very well over all, even though Spidey is clearly out of his league, power-wise…

Okay, so now let us look at the fight at hand between Daredevil and Wolverine in Wolverine #24 (by Mark Millar, John Romita Jr. and Klaus Janson), part five of “Enemy of the State”…
