Matthew Murdock, also known as Daredevil, is a blind lawyer living in Hell's Kitchen. While working on a case against the infamous Wilson Fisk (the man who killed his father years ago), Matthew was targeted by the assassin Bullseye, who chased after him in a dark alley. Matthew hid in a local factory, but Bullseye found him and threw a dagger at him. The dagger missed and hit a barrel of toxic waste, causing it to spray out toxic waste into Matthew's eyes. Matthew was blind, but the martial artist Stick, who was also blind, taught Matthew how to use his other senses, as well as do martial arts himself. Matthew used these newfound skills to become the vigilante Daredevil, so he could take down Fisk's crime empire. Matthew is currently dating Elektra Natchios, another vigilante who was trained by the Hand, an ancient organization of ninja assassins. He was also on the second Avengers team.
