Before there was Daredevil…

Before Matt Murdock was Daredevil, he took out some bad guys in an all black outfit, using a scarf as a mask, and a nightstick for his weapon.

…there was Matt Murdock, college student.  In Frank Miller’s Man Without Fear miniseries, Matt goes out to wage a little justice, wearing a black sweatsuit and a scarf for a mask.  He carried a nightstick he’d swiped from a fat beat cop when he was a kid back in Hell’s Kitchen.  This is a red-haired G. I. Joe I found on ebay, who at the moment is wearing a black jumpsuit, but when I get around to it, I’ll make him a black sweatsuit.  (I began my sewing career making clothes for Barbie, so, yeah, I can do it.)

    I thought you were talking about the DD in The Trial of the Incredible Hulk. I own that dvd, and man is it….something. Well worth checking out, once.

    DD in black actually makes sense. But can you imagine how boring the comics would be if every superhero wore sensible combat clothes? 😉 Fun pose/pic!

    stinkbrown: He’s sort of a cross between the Hulk dvd version and the MWOF version drawn by JRjr.

    chil365: Yep, pretty boring if they wore sensible clothes (and shoes).
