A list of fictional characters who are both blind and badass. These characters from film, TV, and comics aren't defined by their blindness, they're defined by their ability to mop the floor with you using fists, swords, or even their keen intellects. From Daredevil to Toph Beifong, they could all kick almost anybody's ass with their eyes closed.
Whether they're heroes, villains, or somewhere in between, these characters may be blind, but they're far from disabled. They're hyper-capable, and they use their other senses for good or evil. Their lack of sight may drive their benevolence or fuel their drive to conquer, but any way you see it, they make for compelling characters with fascinating stories.Who’s the baddest of the bad in the land of sightless fictional characters?

Creator Joe Kelly has said that Blind Al was the original Black Widow. That's not canon, but we believe it.396167Are they hardcore?
