    First off: Netflix Daredevil looks cooler.


    They both have their uses; and Unawakened, Netflix Daredevil is definitely superior; although he does need his Physical Resistance increased. He has higher baseline critical rate; although Classic Daredevil gets a higher boost with his Specials. Over the course of a fight, they probably get even numbers of critical hits. He has that basic 15% evade, which certainly kicks in regularly enough to be useful (no one complains about Black Widow's 3% evasion, just because Spiderman does it better!).


    Awakened though, Classic Daredevils Evasion is unquestionably a better ability than World on Fire; which at the very least needs a longer duration to be comparable. Classic DD can effectively ignore a large number of Special attacks; even on unblockable nodes. There is simply no comparison between this ability, and a short-term Critical boost.


    On a positive note for Netflix DD, the Armour Break does it for me - like most people, I use Parry to get extra stuns in, and can usually stack 4+ Armour Breaks at a time. This makes him a pretty effective champion against opponents reliant on armour.


    So, I like Netflix Daredevil. But pound for pound, Classic Daredevil's Evasion is simply far better than World on Fire; and so he's the stronger champion.


    I have both 4* champs Awakened, and my heart is with Netflix DD. But my brain is with Classic, so he's the one I ranked up to 4/40. I still get to use Netflix in the arenas...

    Hmm... why prefer evading specials when dexterity can be applied to almost all specials?
    I know world on fire has a limited scope but I don't think a guaranteed chance to evade specials (max sig level) is quite as handy when dexterity is well-used. And even against hard-to-dex specials blocking can do the trick most of the time (at least for me)
