8. Nuke

Some Marvel Netflix fans who haven’t read the comic books might wonder who Nuke is. Basically, Nuke is Will Simpson from Jessica Jones.

Will was a former patient of IGH who left and became a police officer in New York City. Due to a run in with Kilgrave, he wanted to find and kill him and teamed up with Trish Walker and Jessica Jones in order to accomplish this.

Sadly, Simpson wanted true vengeance and returned to IGH for more power and ended up as a crazed murderer. He was finally able to regain control and saved Patsy’s life — by sacrificing his own.

Will’s power included enhanced strength, stamina and a healing factor, as well as pain suppression when his adrenaline is increased. He was strong but Jessica Jones was able to beat him in a fight.

The difference between Will Simpson is that Jessica Jones had him use the pills to gain his superhuman powers while his comic book counterpart had cybernetic enhancements.

7. Daredevil

No, Daredevil is not more powerful than someone like Nuke and he has been beaten by The Punisher before being prepared for the fight. He has also almost died on more than one occasion.

However, don’t let that make you believe that Daredevil is not one of the most powerful characters in the entire Marvel Netflix universe.

His superpowers are his enhanced senses which aid him in not only fighting, but also giving him warning signs of danger, helps him decide if a person is a villain or an ally, and helps him stay alive no matter how many times death comes knocking on his door.

Daredevil is a skilled fighter — trained by Stick — and has beaten many stronger villains many times over. He also is smart and used his kindness and generosity to help him gain allies — one of which created the bulletproof uniform that saved him after the first season of Daredevil.

Yes, Daredevil has been beaten up many times and almost died more than once, but he is still alive and fighting and one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Netflix universe.
