10. Man-Bull

Man-Bull is a rather weird villain who made his first appearance in Daredevil #78. He was just a regular guy who one day consumed an experimental serum. As a side effect of that serum, his body started changing forms randomly turning him into a really powerful man with metal horns on his head. In that form, he is reckless and uncontrollable and in all fairness, quite lethal. Man-Bull has appeared multiple times in the Daredevil comics but even though significantly powerful, remains to be a rather “meh” villain.

9. Nuke

Nuke was a test subject for the Weapon Plus program, the same military program that created Captain America. However, in his case, the enhancement and the overall conditioning caused Nuke to lose his mind and turn into a ruthless killing machine. Later on, he was used as a weapon of mass destruction during the Vietnam War in a Black Ops unit. Kingpin paid Nuke’s handler to deploy him in New York to kill Daredevil, however, with all the destruction, Captain America teamed up with Daredevil and apparently killed Nuke.

8. Mr. Fear

Mr. Fear is a character that appears multiple times in Daredevil comics with his first appearance in Daredevil #6 released in 1965. Mr. Fear has the power to make anyone, even the bravest of heroes extremely afraid using what is referred to as “Fear Gas” (does not sound familiar at all). This villain deploys his gas using pellets that he fires from a gun making him even more dangerous since he can do damage from a great distance.

7. Typhoid Mary

Another recurring villain in Daredevil comics is Typhoid Mary who appears as a villain against Daredevil in multiple comic books, some of which are also referred to as the best comic books in the franchise. She made her first appearance in the year 1988 and possessed a variety of powers. She is equipped with limited telekinesis and can make objects burst like explosives with her mind. Mary can also hypnotize people and put them in a trance-like state; on top of that, she is a master martial artist. These factors made her a formidable foe against Daredevil on multiple occasions.

6. Mysterio

Mysterio is popularly known as a Spider-Man villain but he has done his share of damage to Daredevil as well. After being constantly defeated by Spider-Man, Mysterio accepted that he could not win against him and moved to fight another hero, Daredevil. Now, we all know that Mysterio has no superpowers as such. He uses elaborate illusions and tricks to harass superheroes and this is what he did to Daredevil as well.

5. The Hand

One of the major threats to Daredevil has been a creed of assassins who are a crime syndicate rooted in the discipline of Ninjas and dark magic. They have a large arsenal of highly trained mercenaries and warriors. They are devoted to an entity called the Beast who grants them a certain degree of supernatural powers making them one of the most powerful villains Daredevil has stood against.

4. The Punisher

The Punisher, even though known to be an anti-hero, has been a foe of Daredevil for the longest of times before they became allies. It is no secret that Daredevil does not kill people but Punisher wants to kill them. This became a major conflict among them in several Daredevil comic books where they are chasing the same bad guy but Daredevil wants to put him or her in the prison while Punisher wants to put a bullet in them. This ultimately leads to them fighting each other on most occasions.

3. Ikari

Ikari is often named to be Marvel’s most deadly assassin trained in every form of martial arts that exists. He also seems to be blind like Daredevil and possesses super sensory powers like him as well. Ikari’s origin has not been explored in the comics much nor his identity was ever revealed. He is one of those villains who were able to almost kill Daredevil but unfortunately, this formidable villain was later on killed off.

2. Bullseye

Without a doubt, Bullseye has been one of the most deadly villains Daredevil has ever faced. He is a master assassin who is trained in quite literally every form of martial arts and has unmatched training in using every weapon in the arsenal of any military in the world. He proved his lethality when he easily overpowered and killed Elektra in Daredevil #181.

He gets his name from his insane ability to hit any target from any distance be it with firearms or knives and later on in the comics, he became even deadlier when he got his skeleton coated with Adamantium.

1. Kingpin

Kingpin is without a doubt the most relentless villain Daredevil has ever faced. Kingpin does not possess any actual superpowers, however, he does not wish to inflict just physical harm on Daredevil but destroy everything that’s dear to him. In the comics, he was responsible for blowing up Daredevil’s apartment and he also got his legal license cancelled.

He is also responsible for killing people dear to Daredevil. Kingpin, if has not dealt the most physical damage to Daredevil, is the one who is responsible for breaking him mentally at several points in time making him Daredevil’s greatest enemy.
