It seems there are still a few stories that haven’t been told in the Marvel Universe, and one of them is the tale of Matt Murdock’s mother—introduced as Sister Maggie in the Frank Miller/David Mazzucchelli run. Although we know she abandoned Matt after his birth and turned to the church, it hasn’t been revealed why. And where better than an ORIGINAL SIN tie-in by Mark Waid and Javier Rodriguez! Cover by Chris Samnee.
What is the dark secret that tore apart the Murdock family? How did Matt’s mother become Sister Maggie? Matt Murdock’s journey to the truth begins as Original Sin opens the Man Without Fear’s eyes this July in DAREDEVIL #6!
In original Marvel continuity, his mother died when he was but a child. In the Miller/ Mazzucchelli “Born Again” run, we learned she had become a nun but the story behind his birth was never revealed.
