We’ll start with the power that you often find on various lists, but has never, to my knowledge, been seen in the pages of Daredevil. You also won’t find any mention of this power in any of the last three versions of the Marvel Universe Handbook.
I’m talking about being able to sense the micro-voltage of the human brain. Really, if anyone out there has seen this demonstrated anywhere, please let me know.
I’m suspecting this idea has old roots, dating back to when it seemed like a good idea to just have Daredevil’s radar sense be able to pick up any kind of electromagnetic radiation. That, incidentally, is another ability which has rarely been demonstrated since the early days.
However, one reason for writers’ obvious lack of enthusiasm for anything having to do with the micro-voltage of the human brain is probably that it’s a completely useless power to have. In terms of general usefulness, it’s on the same level as being able to tell the number of grains of salt on a pretzel.
We will continue this series with all the weird stuff Daredevil has actually done in the comic.
