About me

My name is Christine Hanefalk, and I’m based in Stockholm, Sweden. When I came across Daredevil almost twenty years ago, it pulled me back into reading comics, a hobby I’d enjoyed as a child and then abandoned.

For me, Daredevil also provides a particularly interesting case for looking at the areas where science and superheroics intersect. This holds special appeal to me due to my educational background (I hold of Master of Science in Molecular Biotechnology Engineering from Uppsala University), and you’ll find plenty to read about “Daredevil science” on this blog. I’ve also written a book on this topic, Being Matt Murdock: One Fan’s Journey Into the Science of Daredevil.

Since starting this blog, I’ve also had the opportunity to collaborate with others on a variety of projects. I’ve contributed to two Daredevil anthologies (The Devil is in the Details: Examining Matt Murdock and Daredevil and Daredevil Psychology: The Devil You Know (Popular Culture Psychology), and made several guest appearances on podcasts such as The Fantasticast, and The Defenders Podcast. I always treasure the opportunity to connect with other fans.

About the site

On this site, you’ll find posts covering all aspects of the Daredevil character, his book and live action appearances, spanning all time periods. Some of these posts are just for laughs, and others are more serious. It depends on the mood I’m in, and I also strive for a certain amount of diversity when it comes to the content. I want there to be something for everyone to read. As alluded to above, I love analyzing the ins and outs of Daredevil’s senses, so there are many posts devoted to that topic specifically.

I love comments, and am happy to report that this site has amassed well over 4,000 comments over the years. I currently don’t moderate the comments, and I doubt that I’ll ever have to (though comments with more than five links go into automatic moderation and must be approved manually). When it comes to the comment section, there is one hard and fast rule, and that is a show of respect and common courtesy. Simple enough? So far, it has rarely been a problem.
