Daredevil | Comics

Matt Murdock was the son of Jonathan "Battling Jack" Murdock, who used to be a prize-fighting boxer living in Hell's Kitchen of New York. Unlike the other kids in the neighborhood, Matt was busier in studying rather than playing around with other kids. This caused him to be taunted and bullied by the kids that led him to take out his frustrations in his father's gym training.

One day, while trying to save a blind man from getting under a speeding truck, Matt was accidentally exposed to radioactive hazard from the truck that spilled in his face and later it rendered him blind. He went on to train with ninja master Stick to master his newly gained super enhanced senses as a side effect of that accident.

Later, his father was murdered by "Fixer" and his mob, leading Matt to chase them down and engaging in a clash that led him to many other street mobs to super villains. He also met one of his future nemesis Typhoid Mary in a brothel during one of the chase and unintentionally hurt her badly. He designed a costume to fight crime in disguise and taken the alias of the vigilante crime-fighter Daredevil.

Matt then started practicing law with his close friend Foggy Nelson in their own law-firm, met and fell in love with master assassin Elektra, often tangled with the friendly neighborhood Spider-man, the ruthless vigilante known as The Punisher and the enigmatic Russian spy Natasha Romanova AKA Black Widow. While fighting to serve justice against the villains, he also earned the eternal enmity of New York's biggest crime-boss ever; Kingpin.
