This is a tough call. So tough, that I’m not going to make it. They are each other’s equal in every way. Both utilize a hybrid fighting style. Both have heightened senses. Where Panther’s senses are not as acute, he compensates with super strength. I will let GBR’s adoring public pass the final judgement.[socialpoll id=”2225757″]
Brad Neilsen: Wow…don’t know a whole lot about Black Panther but do know he uses some kinda tribal magic to gain most his powers. Daredevil has the super senses yet most overly boomed noises and overly powerful smells shortly maim him. This one is tough but I’ll say Black Panther and let the firestorm start.
Blaine Fisher: I forgot to mention that the backdrop for this battle is the SAHARA DESERT! lol To even things out. Black Panther would dominate in the jungle and Daredevil would pwn in the concrete jungle.
Blake Autin: I’m going Black Panther, he is more technologically advanced. And a better martial artist. He also has the knowledge and skills of all past Black Panthers.
Blaine Fisher: I guess I have to get off of the fence and make a decision. Ironic that since I am being the devil’s advocate, I am going to pick Daredevil. I guess that makes me “Daredevil’s Advocate.” Haha right? Right?!?!
Blake Autin: *face palm
Blaine Fisher Daredevil’s nemesis is Bullseye. Black Panther’s nemesis is Klaw. If Daredevil can beat Bullseye and Bullseye can beat Klaw with a honey rosted peanut while flying coach, then Daredevil should take the win here. Think about it. Aren’t arch-enemies supposed to be equal to their heroic counterparts?
James Chase Autin: Two characters i know little about. Homefield advantage will swing this one every time. But out in the open…it goes to Black Panther. Without the walls and buildings of the familiar city to echolocate off of or whatever the hell Daredevil does, he would be clearly outmatched.
Blaine Fisher: Fun Fact. Black Panther is the richest character in both the Marvel and DC universes. Because his kingdom of Wakanda sits on the worlds only vibranium deposit (Same metal that Cap’s shield was made out of), T’challa’s networth is reported to be around 500 billion dollars. Yes, you read that right, 500 BILLION DOLLARS! That is more than all of the other “rich” characters wealth combined. Let’s do the math shall we?
Blaine Fisher: Stark Industries = 100 billion; Wayne Industries = 98 billion; Dr. Doom’s Latverian economy = 35 billion; LexCorp = 75 billion; Professor X’s old money = 3.5 billion; Magneto = 0.5 billion (Asteroids must come cheap these days). All of their wealth combined comes to a grand total of 319 billion. Panther still has them beat by 181 billion dollars.
Blaine Fisher: Moral of the story is, Panther beats everyone through corporate takeovers. That means buying Hell’s Kitchen and Matt Murdock’s broke-ass law firm.
Blaine Fisher: Wait-a-minute, this is a round of fisticuffs in the desert right? Shit. Nevermind money doesn’t count here.
Brad Neilsen: What about Namur’s wealth?
Blaine Fisher: Clamshells doesn’t count as actual currency. lol
Brad Neilsen: Oh and Ozymandias was written to literally be “the richest man on earth”
Blaine Fisher: In another earth. Still, it is hard to beat that title.
Blake Autin: Why would rock people be rich?
Blaine Fisher: Touché
Daredevil versus Black Panther
Daredevil (AKA Matt Murdock) has heightened senses and is a skilled gymnast. Which means that he can hear his opponents heart rate and can sense pressure changes. In other words, he will know Black Panthers attack before it is even executed. He also uses a unique martial art that blends American boxing (in homage to his dad, Jack Murdock, who was a boxer by trade) with traditional Japanese martial arts, such as judo, ninjitsu, and aiki-jujutsu. This is a confusing technique that Panther would be unprepared for.
Black Panther's (AKA T'Challa) senses and abilities have been enhanced to almost super human powers by a special heart-shaped herb. His senses might not be as sharp as Murdock's, but he does pack a stronger punch. Just like his opponent, T'Challa's fighting style is also unique. His fighting style is a hybrid of acrobatics and animal mimicry. This might make him unpredictable to read. Panther is a master planner that is always three steps ahead. There might be no prep time allowed in this match but he pre-plans his attacks. It is possible that he can anticipate Daredevils anticipation. If that makes sense...
Daredevil's heightened senses put him at a severe disadvantage. Over loud noises can disorient him. Luckily, that battle takes place in a desert. Good luck finding loud acoustics.
Black Panther's cloaking technology is redundant against someone that does not even use his eyes to detect people.
