For those of you new to the rodeo, Daredevil is actually Matt Murdock. He has a super-sensitive radar sense thanks to the accident that stole his sight when he was a kid. He also likes to run around in tights and beat up criminals.
Enough back story, here's the rundown:
#1 - This one has it all... blinding by radioactive isotopes, Battlin' Murdock, the Fixer, the intro of Foggy Nelson and Karen Page, and the garish red-and-yellow costume. At this point in time Spider-Man was very popular and this story is clearly leveraging that popularity (Stan even admits it right on the cover)! The similarities in the characters are striking if you think about it. His powers come from an accident involving radioactivity. He has an extra sense that gives him an edge in fighting crime. And his initial motive for becoming a superhero is the death of a close relative. Hey, if the formula works, don't mess with it.
#2 - Speaking of leveraging Spider-Man, here is exhibit B. In this issue Daredevil steals a supervillain right from underneath ol' Webhead (much like he'd do to the Kingpin several years later)! The Fantastic Four need their lease reviewed and contact Matt and Foggy for help. At this time, Stan was operating under the rule that all law was the same, so now Matt becomes the expert in real estate contract law. Well, it's a good enough reason to get Daredevil to the Baxter Building where he battles Electro. Stan also treats Daredevil's radar sense as an all purpose plot-solver.Read more ›
