DAREDEVIL #4 (1964)

First appearance of Purple Man.  He robs a bank, allows himself to be arrested, and Matt Murdock is assigned to represent him.  He doesn’t want a lawyer, though, so he tries to get Karen to kill herself.

Purple Man gets a whole bunch of people to attack Daredevil, but DD himself is immune to his power.

And saran wrap stops him entirely.

Also, Daredevil’s billy club is getting to be like a ridiculous version of Batman’s utility belt.

Still, very cool issue.

Creators: Stan Lee, Joe Orlando
First appearance: Purple Man
