Marvel 1964: Daredevil

Daredevil is introduced to us as very much in the Spider-Man mold - a street level hero with snappy patter.

Murdock graduates one day, opens his law office with Foggy the very next day, that night comes up with the idea of being a masked crimefighter, sews his own costume, and creates his billy club. Not much room for more Year One material shoe-horned in there, I'll have to read that mini-series again.

DD is sporting his yellow and red costume. He adds a hood/backpack in issue 3 to store his street clothes

and stops using it in issue 4, following the Mighty Marvel tradition of workshopping character design in real time.
