When Matt was a little kid, an accident involving toxic chemicals took away his sight. At first, he felt helpless and miserable, but, with the help of a much older blind man, the boy learned how to adapt to this new reality. The chemicals did make him blind, but they also heightened the rest of his senses. It took Matt years of training before he turned into Daredevil - the greatest vigilante and fighter for justice in NY. During the day, he's trying to build a career as a lawyer with his best friend. During the night, he wears a mask and puts the fear of God into the hearts and minds of the criminals. Fisk, the kingpin of the city, is Daredevil's biggest enemy, and he won't rest until the mobster is behind bars.
