The Man Without Fear
|Origin|| Daredevil #1|
|Appearance(s)||Nightwing VS Daredevil|
|“||As Daredevil, I get to save the world. As a lawyer... maybe I can fix it. I need them both. That's what I realized. The warrior and the lawyer. It doesn't work if I only have one.||„|
As a child, Matthew Murdock rescued an older blind man from an incoming truck, but was blinded by a radioactive material that heightened his senses to superhuman levels. He learned how to master these new senses thanks to combat training from the blind martial arts master, Stick, and eventually obtained a law degree.
When Matthew's father, boxer "Battling Jack" Murdock, refused to throw a fight in front of his son and was killed by gangsters, Matthew used his training to become a costumed vigilante and track down the criminals and avenge his father's death. Since then, he serves justice during the day as a lawyer, and at night as the defender of Hell's Kitchen, Daredevil.
