Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Daredevil #163 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
Blind attorney Matt Murdock is at a Manhattan fundraiser when his super-sensitive hearing detects the Hulk's heartbeat nearby. Without waiting to change into his Daredevil costume, Matt swings over to the alley where the Green Giant is on a rampage and tries to calm him down (Matt Murdock defended the Hulk in court in WITH 152-153, remember?). Mention of Bruce Banner causes the Hulk to fly into a rage. But Matt manages to persuade Jade Jaws to rest, which causes him to revert to his alter ego.

The next morning, Matt provides Bruce with food, clothing and money for his journey west; Bruce thanks him and leaves. On the subway, however, a confrontation with an obnoxious fellow passenger leads to a shoving match and Bruce turns into the Hulk and smashes through the ceiling to the street. Again Matt Murdock hears the Hulk's rampaging search for his "enemy" Bruce Banner; slips into his Daredevil gear to confront the Hulk.

The Hulk is shot by a police officer and sent into a violent rage. Daredevil tries to stop the Green Giant. But his super-keen senses and agility are no match for his foes superhuman strength. Before he collapses from his injuries, the Man Without Fear begs the Hulk to trust him. Hulk, realizing he's injured a friend, leaps off in guilt and despair. Daredevil is rushed to the hospital.
