Matt Murdock was the son of a famous boxer by the name of Battling Jack. Kids gave him the nickname Daredevil, because he had no fear. His mother died when he was only five years old. One night, he was looking for his father, but he saw the last thing he would see, his father robbing a dollar general store. Shocked and ashamed, he ran but saw an old man (presumibly Stan Lee) about to get hit by a truck full of chemicials, but Matt pushed the oldman out of the way and he himself got hit by the truck. He woke up in the hospital, he could no longer see anything, but his other four senses were hightend smell,touch,taste, and hearing.
Life as the Daredevil
Matt became the first blind lawyer in history that never lost a case. He became a master of all martial arts, boxing, and combat. He had a double life as the superhero, Daredevil. Daredevil is known as the vingwilante of Hell's Kitchen. Matt vowed to serve the law as Matt Murdock and to fight evils beyond the law's reach as Daredevil. Over the years, he has fought many super-criminals, including Mister Fear,Stilt-Man, Gladiator, Purple Man and Jester (Jonathan Powers), as well as crime lords such as the Kingpin and the Owl. He has loved and fought alongside both the Black Widow and Elektra. Although Daredevil and the Punisher both fight crime, they often clash over the Punisher's lethal tactics. During an early encounter, Daredevil shot the Punisher to prevent him from killing drug-dealer Peter "Hogman" Grunter. Since then, Daredevil has worked with the Punisher when necessary, but has also attempted to bring him to justice. Daredevil formed the "Marvel Knights" to apprehend the Punisher, who escaped police custody thereafter. Later, Daredevil teamed with Spider-Man and Wolverine in a failed attempt to take down the Punisher, who told Daredevil that the only way to stop him was to kill him.
