Bold Fashion Choices--Blame It On The Evil Twin!

You remember, of course, the ridiculously awful costume that Matt Murdock first wore as Daredevil, right?

Well, the idea that maybe a blind guy might not be the best fashionista didn't sink in, because it wasn't too much longer that Matt Murdock had to play the role of his completely-made-up identical twin brother Mike Murdock, goofy wastrel and plausible suspect for Daredevil's secret identity.

The only  problem? "Mike" still had the color sense of a blind man...

Dude...what is it with you and the yellow?!?

Panels from Daredevil #1 (1964) and Daredevil #26 (1967)

P.S. Can we bring back Mike Murdock, Mr. Waid? Please...?

The entire Mike Murdock subplot drove me insane. That DD could successfully live two center-stage double lives was implausible even for comic books, and Mike "himself" was insufferable. Every issue I hoped Mike would die a valiant fake death protecting his friends--or just be run over by the Spider-Moblie. Mr Waid, can we please never have Mike Murdock back?
