Daredevil has been around since 1964. Even so, the Devil of Hell's Kitchen doesn't have much of a rogues gallery.By far his two most famous enemies are the Kingpin and Bullseye. Bullseye, named Lester in the comic series, is a mentally unbalanced killer with the ability to throw almost any type of projectile with inhuman accuracy and make even simple, mundane items such as playing cards and paperclips into lethal weapons. Whether or not this ability is merely an incredible talent or a true superhuman power is a matter of debate and has been since Bullseye first appeared in Daredevil issue 131 back in 1976. 

Bullseye is responsible for the deaths of two of Daredevil's greatest loves, Elektra and Karen Page. He passionately hates Daredevil but will kill anyone for the right price. But Bullseye also kills for fun and has engaged many other Marvel heroes in battle from Captain America and the Punisher to Deadpool and Moon Knight. Though usually acting alone, Bullseye has also been part of the superhuman team known as the Thunderbolts. This team is much like a Marvel version of DC's Suicide Squad.  

Fans became excited when it was revealed that Bullseye would be the villain in the 3rd season of Netflix's Daredevil series and I don't believe they were disappointed. Though much was changed about the character, the Netflix series captured not only the core of what makes Bullseye who he is but just how deadly he can be. Wilson Bethel's performance as the character is both powerful and disturbing. In the Netflix's series, Bullseye is a psychotic FBI agent who has struggled with being a killer his entire life and is easily recruited by the Kingpin to destroy Daredevil in the public eye and serve as his personal assassin. However, Daredevil season 3 is not only the character's only live action appearance. He was also the main villain of the Daredevil feature film in 2003 where he was portrayed by Colin Farrell.  

Netflix's version of Bullseye has far more depth than the one featured in the Daredevil movie but is just as deadly. Though the Netflix series takes an easy way out of Bullseye killing a main character as he does repeatedly in the comics and the 2003 film, Bullseye is remains very much a force to be reckoned with.
