(Daredevil II#13 (fb) - BTS) - The twin Murphy brothers developed a reputation as quip-quoting hitmen. Having spent much of their time in mental institutions, they both escaped and murdered a set of twins every two months, including a set in the maternity ward. They became known as the "Twin Killer", the police thinking there was only one of them.

(Daredevil II#9 (fb) - BTS) - They were hired by the Kingpin (Wilson Fisk) to kill Larry. They pursued Larry Cebulski, not knowing it was his twin brother Lenny, to the law offices of Matt Murdock and Franklin "Foggy" Nelson.

(Daredevil II#9) - Lenny was shot by Murphy, who also wounded lawyer Matt Murdock and shot up their office. While Murphy was calling in to Fisk to report, Daredevil (Matt Murdock) attacked. Murphy opened fire on the hero, who ignored Murphy's quips and knocked him out. Murphy's twin opened fire, but Daredevil managed to knock him out as well.

(Daredevil II#10) - The Murphy twins were arrested by the police.

(Daredevil II#13 (fb) - BTS) - Arrested, one of the Murphy brothers agreed to testify against Wilson Fisk.

(Daredevil II#13) - Murphy soon testified, refusing to answer the questions of lawyer Rosalind Sharpe with anything but a quip. Due to a lack of evidence, the case was soon dismissed.

(Daredevil II#15) - Nelson managed to get the Murphy twins incarcerated for life. As they were taken away, they gave a final quip for the cameras.
