Matthew Murdock: A son of Hell's Kitchen who overcame disability and childhood tragedy to make good. A BA and JD from Columbia, law review, and prestigious clerkships. And after all of that, he turned down a lucrative job offer from a white shoe law firm to return to his roots and help his neighborhood. Clearly the man's a saint.

Daredevil: A masked vigilante who takes the law into his own hands, terrorizing those who, under the law, must be considered innocent until proven guilty. A shadow; a nightmare; a demon.


A smart, tough, effective attorney with a private practice in Hell's Kitchen, New York.


Matthew Michael Murdock was born at Metro General Hospital in New York City. His father was a boxer, Battlin' Jack Murdock. His mother, Maggie, left the scene early.

A chemical spill robbed him of sight as a boy, and later his father was murdered by gangsters after he refused to throw a boxing match.

Despite these tragedies, Matt persevered. He graduated law school with honors and launched a firm with his closest friend, Foggy Nelson. At the same time he trained his body to become a living weapon, and took to defending the streets of Hell's Kitchen as the vigilante Daredevil.
