Matt Murdock is a blind lawyer in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood, where he runs a firm with best friend Franklin “Foggy” Nelson. As a child, Matt was blinded by a toxic waste spill. The accident enhanced Matt’s other senses and gave him sonar to “see” via sonic vibrations. Matt’s father, boxer Jack “The Devil”, was killed after refusing to turn in a fixed fight for the mobster who had employed him earlier. After his father’s death, Matt promised to stop all crime that controlled Hell’s Kitchen, New York as the vigilante crime-fighter “Daredevil”.
