In Episode 2, Foggy alludes to the fact that Matt might be addicted to being Daredevil. How is this trope different from other superheroes like Batman, Spider-Man, and Superman? How is it different for Matt Murdock?
Ramirez: The thing that makes Daredevil extra-complicated, as opposed to many other comic book superheroes, is a lot of other comic book superheroes do this secret thing in this costume at night or during the day, however they do it. But they do it because they can't actually change the world in their regular life. Because Peter Parker is a kid, and there's some issues there, he's so powerless, he's so bad with girls, but then the reality is he's actually got all these powers.
One thing to me that makes Daredevil very interesting is, in his other life, he is also helping people. He is also doing the thing that he thinks he wants to do at night. So he's one of the few people without an excuse, if that makes any sort of sense. He could devote himself entirely to this thing, to being a great lawyer. He doesn't have to put on the suit and get bloody in a back alley. But there's part of him that enjoys it, and that's something he says in Episode 2 of the first season of Daredevil. He's kind of an adrenaline junkie. There's something about it that he likes, something about the exchange of fists in a back alley that he needs, that he can't get boxing at a gym.
