First Appearing in Daredevil Issue 1 in 1964, Matt Murdock is just a kid who would change his life by saving another man’s. By pushing a man out of the way of an oncoming truck, Murdock was seriously injured and while blinded, developed other abilities. From then on, The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen fought for justice inside and outside the court room.
The Man Without Fear has a ton of great story arcs since his first appearance and one of the best is Frank Millers take on the character.
