Marvel’s Daredevil comic book produces one hit story line after another. Matthew Michael Murdock, aka, Daredevil is not a typical superhero; he cannot fly or fire bolts of energy, and he does not have superhuman strength or abilities that allow him to manipulate matter. What Daredevil does have, are abilities that he gained as a child when he was blinded by a radioactive substance that fell from a moving vehicle. This radioactive substance impacted Daredevil’s natural senses; sight, hearing and sense of touch, among other things, became extremely heightened, far beyond normal human capabilities. In addition Daredevil gained an extra “radar’” sense that gives him a reaction time that borders on prescience.
In the Marvel comic book world, it was the death of Daredevil’s father, killed by gangsters for refusing to throw a fight, which gave Daredevil a reason to jump into the fight against organized crime. Daredevil’s first mission was avenging his father’s death. And thus was the start to Daredevils comic book crime-fighting career.
Daredevil’s comic books have been consistently published in one form or another for more than 50 years. Daredevil has had numerous comic book min-series and a couple of original graphic novel. Daredevil’s popularity has also led him into numerous cross-over events throughout the Marvel Universe as well, co-starring in numerous comic book titles. Daredevil has even been featured in film and television and has an all new series scheduled for Netflix in 2015.
