Daredevil Has Asgardian Powers in War of the Realms
Marvel Comics has started to release more teasers for its up and coming 2019 event series, War of the Realms. Spinning out of the runs on Mighty Thor and Thor by Jason Aaron and artists Russell Dauterman and Matthew Wilson, War of the Realms will see the Dark Elf Malekith bring his crusade against the Ten Realms to Midgard.
Thor’s partners in the Avengers and from over the Marvel Universe will have to join to attempt to stop the invasion, as portrayed on the recently released cover to War of the Realms #1 by Arthur Adams. The thunder god is shown alongside teammates, and also Spider-Man, Luke Cage, The Punisher, Doctor Strange, Daredevil, Wolverine and others, against Frost Giants from Jotunheim, Dark Elves from Svartalfheim, Fire Demons from Muspelheim and Angels from Heaven.
The sheer number of characters is a lot to take in, but one hero who emerges is the Man Without Fear, Daredevil. The defender of Hell’s Kitchen has a prime spot close to the focal point of the image beside Thor, and his outfit is imbued with purple light in different spots. Additionally, Daredevil’s eyes shine purple. Seeing as how he’s a street level legend and his solitary abilities are increased senses, that proposes he has been given new powers for War of the Realms. Also, if the shading is any indication, Daredevil has the Asgardian forces of Heimdall, the All-Seer.
Heimdall is the defender of the Bifrost, the Rainbow Bridge, which grants Asgardians to go between the Ten Realms. Sadly, the Bifrost was annihilated in the Mangog’s frenzy, leaving Thor unfit to give assistance to any realms assaulted by Malekith. Heimdall’s infinitely knowledgeable eyes were additionally a casually of the Mangog.
A visually impaired Heimdall reflects the visually impaired Matt Murdock. The two characters can in any case “see,” through different methods, so it wouldn’t be a lot of a stretch for Daredevil to end up with an enormous update amid the War of the Realms. The greatest clue is Daredevil’s gleaming eyes coordinate those of Heimdall.
Obviously, another plausibility is what we’re seeing is Daredevil manifesting the powers of Captain Universe. The Marvel Prime Universe’s Enigma Force last showed up in Spider-Geddon #5, when it fortified with Miles Morales, allowing him the powers of Captain Universe for a brief. When the Inheritors were vanquished, the Enigma Force left Miles to anticipate another commendable host.
In spite of the fact that it could be the powers of Captain Universe coursing through Daredevil’s body and costume, we will adhere to our underlying theory of Daredevil replacing Heimdall on Midgard, making the Man Without Fear … the Man With Asgardian Sight.
