(Daredevil I#28) – Dean Smith, of Carter College, greeted guest lecturer Matthew Murdock, a prominent, though blind, New York attorney who'd been invited to speak on the rights of extraterrestrials. He explained to Murdock that Professor Tom Brewster had claimed to see aliens more than once. Other students, such as Sal, were quite taken with Murdock. After Murdock's lecture, Brewster was found screaming and claiming to have seen an actual alien. Though few believed him, Brewster's claims were later confirmed as Daredevil defeated the invading Queega.

Comments: Created by Stan Lee, Gene Colan, and Dick Ayers.
