The Truth about the Murdock Family Revealed in DAREDEVIL #6

An ORIGINAL SIN tie in coming in July.

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!

Original Sin is really looking like a great set of stories. Getting a little pumped for it to hit shelves.

Don't we already know the story of Maggie - she was a pregnant teeenager who gave birth then realigous guilt made her become a nun.

Exactly my point. Maybe they're hoping most people haven't read the Battlin Jack story or the one's that have, forgot about it

@squalleon: This is a stupid idea and Waid needs to stop meddling in things he doesn't need to

I'm more than a little pumped for it to hit shelves. The main OS series is going to be good on it's own, but it's really cool that it seems like, really, you don't need to be reading any of the tie-in books to understand the main series, and arguably more importantly, vice versa.

Original sin? Pff... Original Retcons is more like it

I sort of want Waid to just start doing abnormal and radical things with Matt to annoy Jonny Anonymous and Daredevil21184. Just because they will literally never, ever stop reading the book (Which I bet they don't pay for, voiding their opinion anyway).

It's so funny. Mark Waid could walk on water and those guys would say it's because he can't swim.

"Didn't we already get the story of Maggie?"

We got A story. If the new one make sense and works well enough, why can't it be good? Has nobody ever told you a lie? Not every story you get told in life is true. Maybe the story we got isn't true.

They are going to mess around with Maggie's story. I can't believe it.
