Matt Murdock – master mechanic

Hey all! I’ve been busy on my end. So busy, in fact, that I didn’t even notice this IGN interview with Mark Waid until two days after the fact. Anyway, before I finish editing the next episode of the podcast, I thought we’d touch bases again with another look at the Daredevil archives.

In the panels below, from Daredevil #82 (vol 1), by Gerry Conway and Gene Colan, Matt is constructing a new cane. This apparently involves using a blowtorch…

Of all the obnoxious things Matt has spoken over the years, this piece of monologue (and why is he talking out loud?) ranks high on the list:

“Forget lawyering, Murdock — you just know you missed your latent vocation. Give this boy a blowtorch and a toolshop and he’ll build you a better mouse-trap! Matthew, sometimes you astound me. Aside from being a first-class monologist — you’re a top-notch engineer!”

You’d almost think this guy feels like he has something to prove. 😉

    Look back at all the Conway-penned issues of DD — he turned Matt into said monologist!

    I think the phrase “first-class monologist” explains why he’s talking to himself out loud. That’s what monologists do!
