If you viewed the premier of Daredevil on Netflix, you’ve witnessed one of the costume designs of the most underestimated character in the Marvel Comics Universe. Daredevil is the alter ego of blind attorney Matt Murdock. After losing his eyesight as a child, he developed his other four senses (touch, hearing, smell, and taste) and learned to overcome all of his trepidation, becoming the “man without fear.” His main villains were Kingpin (from Spider-man and The Punisher) and Bullseye.

Over the years, different artists worked on the comic book series. Although most of the illustrators maintained the trademark red suit, adorned with two “DD” letters on his chest accompanied by a modified walking stick, Daredevil’s costume has undergone various designs. Browse the next set of pages to view the previous phases of the character and marvel at the comic artwork rendition of the superhero as seen through the visions of various illustrators.
