It’s been three days since Daredevil hit Netflix and proved that Marvel is capable of taking a walk on the gritty side. Which means it’s been three days of overwhelmingly lavish praise for showrunner Steven DeKnight and the Spartacus-lite level of intensity that the series delivers at each and every turn. While its acclaim has been spread out over many areas, including the cast’s performances and the series’ realistic tone, one of the show’s biggest strengths is the mindblowing fight sequences.

From the first minutes to the last, Daredevil put its titular superhero against all forms of thugs and villains in a manner that was far more mature and brutal than nearly any other superhero project out there, and we’ve rounded up the top 5 fights from this stellar debut season. Be warned, though. There are definitely spoilers covered here, so finish your binge-watch ASAP.

The Fight in the Rain
Matt Murdock’s first battle against the human traffickers was a great introduction to his alter ego’s flashy acrobatic style of fighting, but it was the fight against Karen’s would-be killer later on in “Into the Ring” that really cemented how hardcore this show could get. The close-up fisticuffs in Karen’s apartment looked great, and when the pair crashed through the window down onto the rained-out street below, that was when it hit a new level of pain. We got a real sense of how Matt uses his senses in figuring out the best way to handle his enemies.
