Synopsis

Matt Murdock saves a blind man from an oncoming truck but is struck blind himself by a radioactive canister during the rescue; The radioactivity heightens Matt's other senses and gives him an uncanny radar sense; Matt graduates college and begins practicing law with his college roommate Foggy; Matt's father, a boxer, is killed by the Fixer after he refuses to throw a fight; Matt designs a costume and a billy club (from his cane) and takes his derogatory childhood nickname "Daredevil"; DD tracks down the Fixer and the man who shot his father.
