• Netflix Daredevil Analysis—The Dual Self

    [CENTER][IMG][/IMG] [/CENTER] [SIZE=5][B]The Dual Self[/B][/SIZE] At the simplest level a superhero is two different people because they have a secret self (the superhero). They live as an ordinary human being, and also as a crusader for justice who has special abilities. In the eighties, like many aspects of superhero comics, this idea got upgraded.
