As a vigilante, Daredevil seeks to bring justice to those who are in need of justice, resorting to the use of force to counter those who perpetrate injustice in the city. He is in someway a ''messiah'' figure, though quite different from [[wikipedia:Jesus|Jesus Christ]] in his approach to bringing about justice. Claire Temple admires Daredevil but is also a little bit afraid of him and his ways. When she mentions the people that have been helped by Daredevil, and Daredevil invites her to be not afraid, it sounds almost a bit like Jesus answering the doubts of the disciples of John the Baptist:

When Claire shows her admiration for Daredevil's ability to take a beating and stay dignified, Daredevil attributes this to his Catholic upbringing. Perhaps he is referring in some way to Jesus' teaching about ''turning the other cheek'' in the context of the [[wikipedia:Sermon on the Mount|Sermon on the Mount]], even though he himself is willing to use force to stop the injustice of wrongdoers.
