A bad day | Aperit-Hero: Daredevil, the man without fear

This character is another of those classic comic book protagonists who decided to take the path of the hero when they lived the worst day of their life. Little Matt Murdock was poor and alone, without friends, and the only affection he received was from his father Jack Murdock. Jack was a low-ranking boxer, who was mostly used for show, continually getting beaten up by his opponents. But little Matt didn’t care, he loved watching his father fight like a real man devil. Unfortunately, however, things get even worse when, in an attempt to save a civilian who was about to be hit by a truck carrying harmful substances, he went blind due to those same substances that entered his eyes. From then on, his father Jack’s protective instincts grew stronger and stronger.

But unfortunately this protective instinct would have led him to a horrendous end. Jack felt more than ever that he had to protect his son, and to do so he needed to earn more money. The only way to do this was to win fights and climb the ranks, to accumulate enough money to cure Matt’s blindness. But this choice soon led to him being killed by the men who had ordered him to lose again. Matt went to the gym where his father was supposed to perform and, in the back, he could feel the body of his father died, killed by bullets. Daredevil’s tragic story begins like this, with a tragedy that would later lead him to be one of the greatest and bravest heroes the Marvel universe has ever seen.
