Originals / Daredevil Should Be Called Batman - Here's Why

Have you been watching the new Daredevil show on Netflix? Or reading Daredevil comics? Or shame-watching Ben Affleck's Daredevil movie? If you've done any of these things, you know one thing to be true: Daredevil's name doesn't make any goddamn sense (also "Oh yeah, Jon Favreau was Foggy!" if you're shame-watching the movie).

Why is he Daredevil? I guess the whole "Hell's Kitchen so devil" stuff almost makes sense, but it doesn't explain the "dare" part at all. Nope, the name he SHOULD have had - being a creature of the night who uses sonar to see the world around him - is BATMAN.

Unfortunately, it was already claimed by a guy whose abilities had nothing to do with bats.
