Not to be confused with Marvel Comic's blind lawyer character, Lev Gleason's Daredevil was battling it out with big-city gangsters,Tojo's saboteurs, and Nazi brownshirts decades earlier. Interestingly enough, the original Daredevil was mute in his debut issue. According to Wikipedia:
.

"As a child, Bart Hill had been rendered mute by the shock of seeing his father murdered and himself being branded with a hot iron. Orphaned, he grew up to become a boomerang marksman, in homage to the boomerang-shaped scar left on his chest. Like Batman, introduced a year earlier, he took up a costume to wage vigilante vengeance. "

DareDevil Comics #1 / Mar.1941

"Upon his partial revamping in the issue following his debut, only Hill's identity, spiked belt, and the boomerang remained; the mute angle was dropped without explanation, and his original symmetrically-divided bodysuit of pale yellow and dark blue was redesigned to a dark red and blue."
.
"In homage to the Golden Age Daredevil, Marvel Comics' Daredevil would wear a similar costume in the alternate-reality Mutant X series. A similar, earlier homage came in DC Comics' Kingdom Come series, when Peter Cannon, Thunderbolt a character whose regular costume was inspired by Daredevil's, according to creator Pete Morisi wore a new costume very similar to that of the Golden Age Daredevil."

The model I've designed is patterned directly from the cover above featuring one of The Daredevil's early appearances.. This is still a BETA, so there may be a glitch here or there. If you build him, let me know of any problems you may encounter, and please send a pic or two!

Happy Modeling!!
The Professor.
