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'll kill you! I'll kill you!

- That's the C train.

- I'll kill you! Oh, God!

Hey, you can't go past there.

- Call Charlie.

- Right.

You're wasting your time, Urich.

There's nothing to see here.

Jose Quesada.

And the rest of Jose Quesada.

- Whole lot of nothing, huh?

- Keep running those stories...

...and we'll end up with copycat

vigilantes who'll get themselves killed.

Are you here to confirm that Daredevil

is responsible for this, detective?

Come on, Urich. Stop busting my...

There is no proof that your

so-called Daredevil was involved...

...nor that he even exists. Got it?

Got it.

Can one man make a difference?

There are days when I believe.

And others when I have lost all faith.

Matt, it's Heather. Are you there?

Of course you're not there.

You're never there.

At least not for me.

Look, I didn 't want to do this

over the phone...

... but it's not like you've given me

any choice.

It's been three months now, and

I've never even seen your apartment.

Every time we sleep together,

I wake up in the morning alone.

I mean, Jesus, where do you go

at 3:
00 in the morning?

I thought that if I waited, if

I was patient enough, you'd let me in.

That we'd take our relationship

to the next level.

Then I realized

that this is the next level.

Goodbye, Matt.

I hope you find what you're looking for.

Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.

- It's been a week since...

- What are you playing at, Matt?

You didn't come here for forgiveness.

You want permission,

and I can't give you that.

- Justice isn't a sin, Father.

- No, but vengeance is.

You see it every day on the streets.

Violence just begets more violence.

Is that how you want to live your life?

A lawyer during the day...

...and then judge and jury at night.
