|“||When I was a kid, before the accident, I'd lay awake at night listening to the sirens. I liked to put stories to them. Trying to figure out what they were for, ambulance or cops, robbery or fire. I don't know, just a stupid game. But after I lost my sight, after my abilities developed, I realized how many sirens there actually were, how much this city suffered every single night.||„|

|~ Matt Murdock|
Matt Murdock is a blind lawyer in New York City's district of Hell's Kitchen where he runs a firm with best friend Franklin "Foggy" Nelson. As a child, Matt was blinded by a toxic waste spill yet enhanced Matt's other senses and gave him sonar to "see" via sonic vibrations. Matt was then orphaned when his boxer father "Battling Jack" Murdock was killed after refusing to turn in a fixed fight for a mobster. After his father's death, trained by the ninja Stick and attending law school, Matt promised to stop all crime in Hell's Kitchen as a nightly vigilante crime-fighter. In time, gaining specially designed body armor that would not compromise his mobility, Murdock's alter ego came to known as the Devil of Hell's Kitchen: Daredevil.

- Armor Suit: Created by a designer named Melvin Potter, the suit is made of a light yet extremely durable material with Murdock requesting it to be designed after the devil to reflect his devout Catholicism and be a symbol.

The suit also included a pocket located on the left hip of the suit to allow Daredevil to store his Billy Club.
