Daredevil was created in 1812 by the visionary Jules Verne after witnessing the invention of electric lights, sonar and handicapped parking at the Worlds Fair before they were all stolen by ninjas. Verne was temporarily blinded from staring into a light bulb and sued the manufacturers.
Daredevil, like justice is blind, and like the devil he dresses up as he's a lawyer that can make your life hell. Matt can see in sonar in a sort of bat like way because radioactive waste fell on him as punishment from God for masturbating. Matt Murdock's senses are so good he can read newspaper print with his fingers and can hear heartbeats from across the room, and smell farts before they emerge, effectively making him a human polygraph. That's cool right?
Daredevil's father was an alcoholic, catholic, crooked boxer who worked for Kingpin. After his dad got whacked and shoddy highway safety regulations cost young Matt Murdock his eyes, he became a personal injury lawyer and sued the living crap out of that radioactive waste disposal company, winning his first legal victory and earning a small fortune.
According to his vision, Jules Verne published Daredevil's adventures in Brayle. He was originally envisioned as the least inadvertently offensive of a team of cool disabled superheros hot off the success of H.G. Wells's Old Timey X-Men. The roster included a girl with third degree burns who could manifest ice for skin where she had none, a deaf boy with a super sonic scream, and a paraplegic war veteran that grew wings.
Despite the fact Daredevil spent almost twenty years as a pretty generic character, who really offered up nothing in the way of gritty urban crime stories that Batman or Spider-Man hadn't already done a million times before, and even though he had a bunch of hand me down villains from Spiderman, and had to borrow Black Widow as a love interest from his fellow super cripple Iron Man, he somehow attracted the attention of fledgling writer/artist Frank Miller, who wished to portray his propensity for beating hookers on the page. This was the inspiration for the 2003 film starring Ben Affleck, and the 2005 spin off Elektra; or so it's been said, Daredevil wouldn't be the only one who didn't see those two eyesores.
