Synopsis:
Matt Murdock saves a blind man from an oncoming truck but is struck blind himself by a radioactive canister during the rescue. The radioactivity heightens Matt's other senses and gives him an uncanny radar sense. Matt graduates college and begins practicing law with his college roommate Foggy. Matt's father, a boxer, is killed by the Fixer after he refuses to throw a fight. Matt designs a costume and a billy club (from his cane) and takes his derogatory childhood nickname "Daredevil." DD tracks down the Fixer and the man who shot his father.
