Matt Murdock


Disambiguation: Daredevil, Earth-616

First published in: 1964

Matt Murdock is blinded by a radioactive substance that falls from an out-of-control truck after he pushes a man out of the path of the oncoming vehicle. While he can no longer see, his exposure to the radioactive material heightens his remaining senses beyond normal human ability, and gives him a "radar sense", later becoming Daredevil. He is also a skilled and respected lawyer after graduating from Columbia Law School with his best friend and roommate, Franklin "Foggy" Nelson, with whom he becomes law partners, forming the law firm Nelson & Murdock.

Created by Stan Lee (writer) and Bill Everett (artist). First appearance in Daredevil (Marvel, 1964 series) #1 (April 1964).
