Synopsis: Fate deals young orphan Matt Murdock a strange hand when he is doused with hazardous waste. The accident leaves Matt blind but also gives him a heightened "radar sense" that allows him to "see" far better than any man. Years later Murdock has grown into a man and becomes a respected criminal attorney. But after he's done his "day job" Matt takes on a secret identity as "The Man Without Fear," Daredevil, the masked avenger that patrols the neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen and New York City to combat the injustice that he cannot tackle in the courtroom.

I would help those

that others wouldn't.

I would seek justice.

One way or another.

Ladies and gentlemen,

justice is blind...

...but it can be heard.

And today, the truth will come out.

Mr. Quesada,

would you state for the court...

...the sequence of events leading up

to the night of June 30?

I stopped off at Josie's Bar after work.

I had a few drinks.

Angela was there.

She was closing up.

She asked me if I wanted

to stick around for some fun.

Anything that happened after that

was entirely consensual.

Are you aware that perjury is a crime,

Mr. Quesada?

Objection. My client's a respectable

member of the community.

- Miss Sutton has a history of drug...

- My client's not on trial.

- Her testimony is suspect...

- Nor is her testimony suspect.

Gentlemen, that's enough.

The truth is, Mr. Murdock,

is that Miss Sutton...

Miss Sutton enjoyed every minute

of it.

Mr. Quesada, for your sake,

I hope justice is found here today...

...before justice finds you.

That's not right.

Another rapist back on the streets.

Yeah? Here's what I don't get.

How can a scumbag like Quesada

afford an attorney like Hirsh?

He can't.

The Kingpin's gotta be footing the bill.

- Come on. Let's go get drunk.

- Not tonight.

I got work to do.

- Right here.

- Hey.

- What's up?

- You gotta take that.

- Big neck, come on.

- I can't believe...

What was her name?

To the justice system, right?

Of course I beat it.

Kingpin's got my back, bro.

How you doing, sweetie?

- Boss?

- What's up?

- What's up with that?

- Is that guy for real?

Yeah, he's for real.

- What do you want?

- Justice.

Oh, God. Oh, God!

- Hi. How you doing?

- Didn't you hear?

- I was acquitted.

- Not by me.

Hey, that light

at the end of the tunnel?

- Guess what. That's not heaven.
