History: (Daredevil IV#1.50 (fb) – BTS) – On Earth-14436, when Jonathan "Jack/Jackie" Franklin Murdock was born to Matt Murdock and his wife, he appeared to be a normal baby boy. At the time, Matt Murdock, in his guise as the heroic Daredevil, was famous for having fought the Purple Children, the Shroud and the Owl. At 14 months, hyper-senses developed in Jackie and he experienced agony, highly sensitive to touch, smell, taste and sound. Jackie responded to his hyper-senses with fear and agony until Dr. Valeria Richards was able to cure them. After that, he was skiddish and very fearful in his childhood. Jack wanted to study more than anything but his dad regularly pushed him to be physically active and enjoy life. Jackie's mom became the mayor, a job his father had previously, and the family had a dog, Lightning. Matt encouraged Jackie not to use cyber-optics, eye drops used to stay connected to the Internet.

(Daredevil IV#1.50) – Matt interrupted Jack's studies, encouraging him to come out and box, but Jackie grew nervous. "Foggy" Nelson came over for dinner but soon, an epidemic hit the city, blinding most of the populace, Jackie among them. Jackie screamed in fear and Matt chose to stay home and comfort him instead of going to investigate. "Foggy" realized that the cyber-optics were responsible for the blindness across the city, including in civilians like Cecelia Shiro. Daredevil stopped the villain behind it, Jubula Pride, but he lost his super-powers in the process, going permanently blind. Later, Matt worked to make Lightning a seeing eye dog but when the dog walked Matt out in front of a truck, Jackie overcame his fear and pushed his dad out of the way, saving him. Matt embraced his son.

As this future diverges from the standard timeline before Daredevil moved to San Francisco in Daredevil IV#1, it can be presumed that the rest of Daredevil's history prior to this remains the same in this timeline as his Earth-616 counterpart.

Jubula Pride and the Purple Children were mentioned in this alternate future before they appeared in the regular Daredevil book.

Since Jackie seemed to be born with enhanced senses that did not manifest until he was 14 months old, one would think that would classify him as a mutant but no official determination was given in-story. --Proto-Man

Jackie Murdock should not be confused with:


(Daredevil IV#1.50 (fb) – BTS) – After retiring as a super hero, seeing many of his contemporaries die or retire, Matt Murdock realized his super-powers were intensifying, allowing him to perceive depth and contour, almost allowing him to read. Matt served as the mayor of San Francisco for a time. As Daredevil, he developed a reputation for fighting the Owl, the Purple Children and the Shroud. Daredevil initially trusted Jubula Pride, the daughter of the Owl, with his secrets but she went mad after he defeated the Owl and she spent years trying to get Matt's attention. After marrying, Matt raised his son, Jack, and was relieved the boy initially didn't have super powers but when Jack turned 14 months, super-senses showed up and Jack was in agony due to touches, smells, sounds and tastes. Matt was able to get Jackie to Dr. Valeria Richards, who stabilized him. Matt encouraged Jack not to use cyber-optics, eye drops used to stay connected to the Internet. He focused on raising his son the best he could. Jack only wanted to read so Matt had to challenge him regularly to enjoy life and be physically active. They got a dog, Lightning. Matt's wife became the mayor and worked on trying to make decisions on her own terms.

(Daredevil IV#1.50) – While his wife was out on the west coast, Matt interrupted Jack's studies, inviting him to come and box, but Jackie grew scared of the noises outside. "Foggy" Nelson came to visit. An epidemic subsequently hit the city, causing blindness in most of the populace, and Matt saw a plane crash outside as Jackie cried out that he was blind. Matt chose to stay home with Jackie and comfort him rather than heading out to investigate. The next morning, Matt heard a high-pitch summoning him and out in the city, he found a crown in a box with a transmitter on it and a costume in another box. He put it on as Jubula Pride spoke to him over the transmitter. "Foggy" realized the cyber-optics were responsible for the blindness and he reported it to Matt. Realizing Jubula was behind it all, Daredevil attacked her, discovering she had built a radioactive machine that would strike much of the populace blind. Jubula explained that she'd done this so that people would need Daredevil again. Daredevil destroyed the machine, restoring sight to others, but permanently blinding himself in the process. Later, he worked on making Lightning a seeing eye dog but the dog walked him in front of a truck, inspiring Jackie to rush to save Matt.

(Daredevil IV#1.50) – Lightning the dog belonged to Matt Murdock and his son Jackie. When "Foggy" Nelson came to visit, Lightning was excited. Later blinded, Matt began training Lightning as a seeing eye dog but Lightning walked him in front of a truck, causing Jackie to rush to save Matt as he called Lightning a bad dog.

"Foggy" Nelson

(Daredevil IV#1.50 (fb) – BTS) – "Foggy" settled in San Francisco, where Matt Murdock served as the mayor for a time. Both Matt and "Foggy" married, and Matt fathered a son, Jackie.

(Daredevil IV#1.50) – "Foggy" came over to visit Matt and Jackie, and he saw their dog Lightning. When an epidemic hit the city, resulting in blindness in most of the populace, Jackie was affected. Matt chose to stay and comfort Jackie instead of going out to investigate. The next morning, after discussing the case with "Foggy," Matt heard a summons for him so he headed out. After tucking Jackie in, "Foggy" saw a bottle of cyber-optics (eye drops used to stay connected to the Internet) and he theorized that was what had been hacked to cause the blindness. He called and reported to Matt.

Jubula Pride

(Daredevil IV#1.50 (fb) – BTS) – When Daredevil first moved to San Francisco, he befriended Jubula Pride, the daughter of the Owl, and he trusted her with his secrets. After Daredevil defeated the Owl, Jubula went mad and she spent years trying to get Daredevil's attention again, attacking him from time to time. After Daredevil married and had a son, Jackie, Jubula found a way to hack the cyber-optics network and she found a way to make most of the city blind. She built a radioactive device that would strike many more blind, thinking it would help people need Daredevil again.

(Daredevil IV#1.50) – After the blindness epidemic struck the city, Jubula watched from outside Matt's apartment as he chose to stay and comfort his son rather than head out to investigate. The next morning, Jubula set off a high pitch to lure Matt to two boxes, one containing a crown and the other his costume, and she taunted him over the transmitter as he put it on. Daredevil soon attacked Jubula and discovered the radioactive device. Daredevil destroyed the device, restoring sight in everyone, but it took away his super-senses and made him permanently blind.
