As a child, Matt was close to his father. His father was a boxer, but when he refused to throw a match, he was killed by the Kingpin. Matt saw him being killed and before Kingpin's men could get to him he ran and caused a truck to swerve. The toxics the truck was transporting went into Matt's eyes and blinded him.

Boy Without Fear[]

Matt's senses became enhanced and he began training himself. He became dependent on hearing and smelling, much like a dog. He enrolled himself into a gymnastics class to become agile. After he had completed his self-training, another blind man named Stick found him. Stick trained him how to fight and by the time he was done, Matt was fifteen.


He made a costume and became Daredevil, Guardian of Hell's Kitchen. He fought thugs and kept people safe. Matt came face to face with the Kingpin several times but he eventually learned he could never defeat him. He learned that S.H.I.E.L.D. was after the Kingpin so he had an idea.


Daredevil joined the S.H.I.E.L.D. Training Program for young heroes, along with Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Spitfire. He became friends with all of them and his training enhanced his powers further. Nick Fury told him that when he is ready, he will be able to go after the Kingpin.

High School[]

After Spider-Man joined the training program, Matt, Luke, Danny, and Jen were all sent to go to Midtown High School along with Peter. He became great friends with Peter and his friend Harry Osborn. When the Human Torch joined, Matt did not like his cocky attitude and eventually told him off. After that, Johnny became responsible and the two of them became friends.
