When it comes to superheroes that are pure skill and no superpowers, only a few of them come to mind. If it is DC, we think of Batman. If it is Marvel, Captain America is the one. As the Super Soldier, Cap is one of America’s greatest weapons. He is one of Marvel’s most popular heroes who rose through the ranks of the Avengers and eventually became its leader because of his grit, prowess and his leadership skills. There is one other guy though. This guy is a lone wolf. He does not like working in teams and he is just as skilled as Captain America. He is a nightmare for criminals and just like Cap, is an absolute beast when it comes to close quarter combat. The guy we are talking about is Daredevil. So this begs the question of what if Cap and Daredevil decide to fight it out. Who would win this fight? Presenting – Daredevil vs Captain America – Here’s why the Man without Fear stands no chance!!!
Matt Murdock was a normal kid until his eyes were sprayed with dangerous mutagenic chemicals that damaged his eyes beyond repair. But he got another sense to compensate for that. His signature Radar Sense is his ability to perceive the world around him via literally visualizing sound waves.
Daredevil can use this ability to look through walls and fabrics and even perceive things that is impossible to look at in the visible end of the electromagnetic spectrum, like looking in complete darkness. It also grants him the power of 360-degree vision.
Daredevil is a master martial artist and is well versed in more than a dozen fighting techniques which he blends with classic American boxing to create his unique fighting style. He also has an extremely acute sense of smell and touch and is a master strategist.
Captain America aka Steve Rogers used to be a timid human being in his early twenties when he was injected with the Super Soldier Serum. The serum gave Steve Rogers an enhanced physique and also gave him peak human physical attributes. Captain America represents the best of humanity. His strength, speed, endurance, durability, stamina, and reflexes are the uppermost limits any human being could reach realistically.
His enhanced physique also makes him immune to alcoholism since his metabolism is well beyond the average human being. Captain America is Marvel’s greatest strategist and tactician. He is the Avengers’ most popular leader and has led his team to victory in cases where it looked like there was no chance of them even surviving the battle. He is a born leader and the perfect tactician. He is also one of Marvel’s greatest close combat specialists.
Final Fight – Daredevil vs Captain America
Daredevil is basically an anti-hero in the comic books. If he sees red, he will fight anyone, even if the opponent is a good guy. So, a fight scene for Captain America and Daredevil could be Daredevil mistaking Cap as the enemy and deciding to release his batons to put him down. What happens next could be termed as the greatest martial arts fight of the Century.
So which vigilante will win this close quarter fight? Any guesses??
It is Captain America. For the Daredevil fans, we have just this to say. Matt Murdock is many things. But he is not as adept a fighter as Captain America. Moreover, he uses batons as weapons while Cap has a freaking unbreakable shield of Vibranium. Daredevil also has numerous weaknesses. He can be drugged with hallucinogens easily which affects his radar sense.
Captain America is also a much better tactician than Matt Murdock. One way or another, he will find a method to take down the Man without Fear. Captain America wins this one fair and square.
Captain America last appeared in the MCU in Avengers Infinity War. Avengers Infinity war has already witnessed its Blu-Ray and DVD release. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artefacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
