POWERS AND ABILITIES
Even before he became an official vigilante, Matt has been living a double-life. From the moment he lost his sight and gained his other senses, he decided to keep it a secret. He didn’t think people would understand and he didn’t want to be treated like a freak of nature. For that reason, he’s become incredibly good at pretending being blind is actually a handicap, even when it’s the exact opposite for them. His double-life has grown into almost two different people. Matt Murdock is the friendly, charismatic lawyer who always defends the little guy and can write killer opening and closing statements. He enjoys going out for Indian food and going to the bar with his friends. He’s also pretty active on the dating scene, though commitment does seem to be an issue. He just seems like your typical blind lawyer from Hell’s Kitchen, whatever that means.
Daredevil is someone else entirely. He’s not sadistic, but he’s so full or rage and spares no expense when it comes to punishing the guilty. He obeys a strict no-kill code, though that’s partly because he fears his own inner darkness. He’s so obsessed with protecting his city, it borders on mania. He has almost no sense of self-preservation, hence his name. He barely rests, and no matter what dark comes to his city he never backs down, even when he’s clearly outmatched.
The real Matt Murdock is somewhere in between the Blind Lawyer and the Daredevil persona, though finding that Matt Murdock between those two identities has proven challenging. Matt himself struggles with depression and hides himself in his vigilantism to deal with that. He is also constantly conflicted by his love for law and justice and with all the time he spends breaking the law and undermining the justice system.
The only thing that really keeps Matt grounded is his friends, the ones that know both sides of him and can see the truth underneath. These people probably know Matt better than he knows himself, and can keep him from succumbing to the darkness.
