'Daredevil' series sends hero to South Florida


Sixth installment


By Lesley Abravanel

Miami Beach has its fair share of colorful characters, but none as colorful as Marvel Comics’ Matt Murdock, the protagonist in the Daredevil: Dark Knights series, whose sixth installment sends the illustrated hero to South Florida "in pursuit of a client fleeing prosecution," according to Newsarama.com, which asked the Marvel Knights co-founder Jimmy Palmiotti why Miami. "I wanted a less intense Matt to have some fun for a change…but even that doesn’t last very long because of what happens while there . . . Ever notice when people are away from home they act a bit different? Well, in this series we made sure to give Matt a red bathing suit and sunglasses to go with the summer weather and attitude."
