Marvel is set to reveal the truth about Matt Murdock’s family once and for all when Daredevil #6 hits the stands, bringing an Original Sin crossover with it.
This July, the truth about Matt Murdock’s parents comes to light in DAREDEVIL #6 – an Original Sin Tie-In! After nearly 30 years, the untold story of Matt Murdock’s mother will finally be revealed, courtesy of Eisner award-winning writer Mark Waid and critically acclaimed artist Javier Rodriguez!
Matt Murdock was raised in a broken home by a loving father who fought a daily struggle against his personal demons. Matt made peace with is mother’s absence long ago, but never really knew the story of why she left him and Battlin’ Jack Murdock. He’s about to find out.
A dark secret from Matt Murdock’s past sets him on a journey to find answers. Answers that will take him right to the doorstep of his estranged mother. Only he’ll find her in more trouble than he could possibly imagine!
“Matt learns something very startling about his mother in the Original Sin limited series that he’s compelled to investigate, but there’s a reason he can’t just ask her directly and end the story on page five,” say series writer Mark Waid in an interview with Marvel.com. “All I can say about her current situation is that Matt will never be more regretful that he’s no longer licensed to practice law in New York State…”
How did Matt’s mother become Sister Maggie? The secret that tore apart the Murdock family finally revealed this July in DAREDEVIL #6!
On a decidedly smaller scale than some of the other Original Sin crossovers like Captain America and Spider-Man’s, this Daredevil foray into the unseen world of the Watcher could prove just as good. Maybe even better.
Matt Murdock is a more grounded hero than many of the other capes in the Marvel Universe and his tales, many of which involve the legal system in the US (which he used to be a part of), are at their best when the character has a personal stake in them. That’s something that’s happened more than a few times over the years, and now Marvel is promising maybe the ultimate ‘case’ with one that involves Murdock’s long mysterious mom.
Just what happened to the Murdock family has been a question since the character debuted decades ago and it’s never really been addressed in any solid way, till now that is. This one’s required reading for any fan of the crimson devil, and probably recommended perusing for anyone else.
Daredevil #6 ties in with Original Sin and hits the stands this coming July from the team of Mark Waid and Javier Rodriguez.
