‘Nightwing vs Daredevil’: Who’d win a comics battle

Without a doubt, ‘Nightwing and Daredevil’ are two of the best street fighters to ever call themselves superheroes. Battle-tested, hard-hitting, resilient, and with a knack for asymmetrical fighting, both have no problems handling themselves while fighting in a cramped urban landscape. However, what if they fought each other?

There are few superheroes in the DC or Marvel universes who are more experienced in hand-to-hand combat than ‘Nightwing and Daredevil’. Dick Grayson got his start in street fighting at the ripe age of eight as Robin, the sidekick to one of the most exacting and punishing mentors in comics – ‘Batman’. Indeed, ‘Batman’ was not averse to letting Robin experience the full pain of crime fighting, which he believed would make Dick a better superhero and partner. Similarly, Matt Murdock was born into a combat-first family. His father was an accomplished heavyweight boxer who taught his son from an early age how to defend himself in a fight. Those basic fighting skills were further enhanced during his tutelage under the blind martial arts master Stick and his training with the ninja clan known as “the Hand.”

Naturally, fighting abilities are just one element of a superhero's ability. Notably, it is in their other abilities that ‘Nightwing and Daredevil’ begin to differentiate themselves. For Nightwing, the key difference is his comfortability using technology. As the original member of the Bruce Wayne/Batman superhero family tree, he understands the benefits that using technology gives a superhero without superpowers. This point is most obviously demonstrated in Nightwing’s suit, which is a body-wide expansion of Batman’s utility belt. It not only provides ‘Nightwing’ with a cache of weapons and tools to overcome his opponent but also works to make the best of his inherent skills as a highly trained and experienced acrobat.
