Jack Murdock, was a boxer. However, to support his young son he became a crook working for a mobster. Shortly after, Matt was accidentally bombarded by radiation from a canister of radioactive waste materials, which was being illegally transported through the city on behalf of the Kingpin. As a result, Matt was blinded, and Jack sought revenge on the Kingpin, but whilst collecting evidence he was caught by the Kingpin, who had him killed.
Meanwhile, Matt discovered that his loss of sight had enhanced his other senses of smell, touch and taste. He was puzzled by a seemingly natural radar that he had adopted, but was trained to control it when he met a mysterious man who called himself Stick. Matt became the vigilante known as Daredevil, seeking revenge on the man responsible for the loss of his father, the Kingpin.Matt also became a lawyer and one of his clients was Peter Parker, who had been framed by the Kingpin, and considered a traitor to his country. Parker was kidnapped from prison by Richard Fisk as part of the plot, and almost executed before being saved by the Daredevil, who allowed him to hide in Matt's apartment. Daredevil and Spider-Man teamed up to clear Peter Parker's name, which was successful, although the Kingpin managed to escape. Matt then vowed to leave New York and collect enough legal evidence against the crime lord.
As a result of his blindness, the Daredevil's other senses are enhanced, including smell, touch, taste and hearing, to the point where he can hear another persons heartbeat from a significant distance. He can use a natural radar, which senses the detail of his surroundings. He is able to see through disguises, including when the Chameleon has morphed into another being.
Matt Murdock is a professional lawyer, specialising in criminal defense, As well as a great hand to hand fighter.
