Matt is a young troublemaker in Hell's Kitchen before saving a man's life from an oncoming truck takes his sight. Battling Jack Murdock is a down on his luck aging boxer who gets involved with a mobster who makes him part of his protection racket. Stick is a janitor at Jack's gym and begins to teach the sightless Matt the ways of the warrior. Fixer tells Jack to throw a big fight, but when Battling Murdock wins, the Fixer kills him.

Indexer Notes

This origin update has Stick involved in Matt's training much earlier than supposed. It also has the Fixer himself shooting Jack Murdock (in Daredevil #1, Slade is the trigger man).
