Matt Murdock grew up an outcast, bullied constantly, while tending his alcoholic father, a retired prizefighter caught in too deep with the mob. After his father’s murder, Matt was left to his own devices, surviving by instinct. When he hits thirteen, however, he is accidentally blinded. Just when it seems he’s beaten, Matt is taken under the wing of a frightening but charismatic teacher who will lead him toward his destiny — to become the defender of those who cannot defend themselves.
