AKA: MATT MURDOCK
One of the superheroes created by Stan�n�Jack during their burst of unparalleled creativity in the mid-1960s, Daredevil was one of the first down-and-dirty superheroes, choosing to base himself in New York�s less than salubrious Hell�s Kitchen. A mess of contradictions � he�s a devout Catholic who dresses up as a devil, he�s a lawyer by day, while getting up to some pretty intense, and illegal, vigilantism by night � Daredevil has never enjoyed the following of a Hulk or a Spidey, but he�s a compelling, layered and visually striking character who�s attracted some of the best talent in the business. It was on Daredevil that Frank Miller came to prominence, while the likes of Brian Michael Bendis, Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale and Kevin Smith have taken a shot at the noble but tortured hero in recent years.
FIRST APPEARED IN DAREDEVIL #1 (1964)
CREATED BY STAN LEE AND BILL EVERETT
