Pre History
The son of a small-time boxer, Matt Murdock was taught by his father that fighting was not the answer to life’s problems. As raised by his father, Matt was selflessly noble. This was never more apparent than when he pushed an elderly man out of the path of a runaway truck. Matt’s kindness was cruelly repaid by fate when radioactive waste from the vehicle’s payload splashed onto his eyes, blinding him. Devastated at first by his apparent handicap, Matt slowly came to realize that the accident had radically augmented his ability to perceive the world around him. His vision was gone, but the radioactivity had heightened his other senses to a superhuman degree.

Unable to adjust to his overdeveloped senses, the terrified Matt eventually came under the tutelage of the blind martial-arts master Stick. A stern, unrelenting taskmaster, Stick educated Matt in both the spiritual and physical aspects of the martial arts, refusing to let him think of himself as a helpless victim. Matt emerged as an Olympic-class gymnast and formidable hand-to-hand combatant.

Matt’s pain and guilt over the losses in his life have replaced his earlier motivations, fueling his battles as Daredevil long after any reasonable man would have quit the fight. In the wake of so many deaths, Matt’s suffering and grief are his only constant companions. Night after night, he struggles to safeguard Hell’s Kitchen—seeking absolution and forgiveness from those who have long since lost the ability to clear his conscience.

Fun Facts
Shared Origin
Part of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' origin story - with the young boy pushing a blind man out of the way of a speeding truck full of radioactive goop - mirrors that of Daredevil's. This, and the addition of their master Splinter's name being a parody of Daredevil's master Stick - culminate to an obvious parody of the Marvel title. However, TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman has revealed via interviews that in his mind, the two events were one in the same, meaning that the boy that saved the blind man in TMNT was a young Matt Murdock. Of course, this makes little sense considering the fact that TMNT has such a rigid canon timeline, and Marvel's works on a sliding scale, but there you have it.
