A young street performer meets with an accident and is transformed by a mysterious figure into the super-powerful Dark Messiah. The Messiah breaks a gang of kids out of prison, leads them to Golden Gate Park, and erects a force field so that no one can get in. Daredevil gets involved and makes it through the force field but the power of the Messiah is too much and Daredevil goes down.
