When Daredevil became his own fake twin brother. Keep in mind, he kept this up for seventeen issues. This was before decompression.




















This is such a George Costanza thing to do.











Oh gods! What the hell, Matt?!?!













You're not making blonds look good, Karen!







So, Daredevil knew what she would say and how to respond hours in advance? And how did his phone answer when it was off the hook?!

It shows in my Firefox, but you might want to trim down the size of your above the cut image (or else put it under the cut), it's a bit larger than is allowed.

But Mike Murdock and Matt Murdock can't be the same person- they wear DIFFERENT glasses.

That was my favorite line in the whole movie, assuming you're making the reference I'm assuming you are.

It's kind of fascinating how the DAREDEVIL title transformed somewhere along the way from Marvel's most light-hearted comic book to its grimmest and darkest.

I wouldn't go that far. It really wasn't written any differently then the other Marvel books at the time - which is part of the reason Daredevil was known for many years as a Spider-Man knock-off.

I've read a lot of the Marvel comics of that era. They're light-hearted, but none of them are quite as light-hearted as DAREDEVIL. He was basically Spider-Man without the angst.

I've read them too, and quite frankly, no Marvel comic was without angst in those days, and Daredevil was no exception.

Although granted, his villains were a lot goofier then Spider-Man's ( did you know, kids, that Leapfrog and Stiltman were originally Daredevil villains?!).

"I've read them too, and quite frankly, no Marvel comic was without angst in those days, and Daredevil was no exception."

Yeah, I was overstating it, but DAREDEVIL had less of it. I maintain it was the most light-hearted superhero comic Marvel was putting out in those days. I can't imagine that goofy twin brother plot playing out over 17 issues in, say, FF or SPIDER-MAN.

The Murdock stuff is a red herring. That's really Peter Parker disguised as Matt disguised as Mike disguised as Daredevil, isn't it?

I loved the wackiness of Matt Murdock. I'm glad it didn't last, but for the time it was fun.

"Mike" has some amusingly thick, blocky glasses.

Dude could probably fold 'em up, swing 'em out, and crack someone's nose with 'em.

That is.... Some Silver Age Marvel stuff right there. Only Marvel would get so weird an convoluted by the soap opera dynamics of a superhero that he is forced to make up and masquerade as his own twin brother. I can't decide if that gimmick would have delighted me or worn on me to the point of distract had I been a reader back then.
And those glasses, who wears glasses like that? Who sells glasses like that? Did real, rational, thinking people actually wear glasses like that? I don't know, but I'm assuming the only reason Foggy and Karen didn't see through Daredevil's utterly preposterous plan is that they were too dazzled by those monstrosities to think straight.

They're blocky wraparound shades. It's surprising to see them on anyone in a book from the '60s, but there was a period of time in the 1980s where they were in style.

I was actually thinking just how much of a soap-opera tactic an actor playing their identical twin/cousin/coincidental stranger was! :)

Oh holy Christ my brain can't handle this post-sleep.
I'd say "this early in the morning" but I woke up at 11am.

Wait wait wait... this scene seems to imply that Karen just found out that Matt's previously unmentioned twin brother is, by sheer coincidence, also blind? And she doesn't put two and two together?

...Man, what was in New York's water supply in those days?
