I had a complete run of Daredevil up through 1988, including #1 in near mint condition. I read every issue (carefully) and I enjoyed the storyline. I should be loving the Netflix series.
I’m hating it.
The main characters are fine, and I thought Stick was well-played by Scott Glenn. It’s Kingpin that’s killing it for me. He’s the lamest villain when he should be dominating the screen. Heck, Leland is tougher than Wilson Fisk, to the point where he mouths off to Wilson’s face and it goes unchallenged.
I’m on episode nine of the first season, and I’ll probably force myself to get to season two because I like Punisher. Hopefully Wilson Fisk goes away or the character gets to be like the actual Kingpin character. I’m also looking forward to an accurate Electra and Bullseye, which was one of my favorite Marvel story arcs.
We’ll see how it goes.
