Talk Nerdy to Me Daredevil season 2 review

Jack and Troy from geek out about the new season of Daredevil on Netflix. “Daredevil” follows Matt Murdock, attorney by day and vigilante by night.

Matt Murdock was blinded as the result of an accident as a child.  He now uses his heightened senses to fight crime in the Hell’s Kitchen section of New York. His efforts are not welcomed by powerful businessman Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin, and others whose interests collide with those of Murdock. Though Murdock’s day job portrays a man who believes in the criminal justice system, his alter ego suggests otherwise, as he takes the law into his own hands to protect his Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood and the surrounding communities.

The backstory

Daredevil is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Daredevil #1 (April 1964).

Daredevil’s origin story is Matt Murdock lives in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York City.  A radioactive substance blinds him when he pushes man to safety from an oncoming truck.

The Powers

While he no longer can see, the radioactive exposure heightens his remaining senses beyond normal human ability and gives him a “radar sense”. His father, a boxer named Jack Murdock, supports him as he grows up. Gangsters kill Jack after he refuses to throw a fight. After donning a yellow and dark red costume (later all dark red) Matt seeks out revenge against his father’s killers.  He fights his many enemies including Bullseye and Kingpin. He also becomes a lawyer. Daredevil’s nickname is “the Man Without Fear”.

While Daredevil had been home to the work of comic-book artists such as Everett, Kirby, Wally Wood, John Romita Sr., and Gene Colan, among others, Frank Miller’s influential tenure on the title in the early 1980s cemented the character as a popular and influential part of the Marvel Universe. Daredevil has appeared in various forms of media.  Ben Affleck starred in Daredevil, a 2003 feature-length film. Charlie Cox plays the title character in Marvel’s Daredevil, a live-action television series on Netflix that premiered on April 10, 2015.
