Powers/Abilities: Stunt-Master is a trained motorcyclist who braves daring stunts, including high jumps, twists and turns, and fast speeds, to awe crowds. Stunt-Master uses tricks and technology to survive his jumps, with vast financial backing from companies, including Leveron. Stunt-Master has used homeless men hopped up on chemicals as decoys, these men dying to help convince the crowd that Stunt-Master can survive any danger.
(Daredevil IV#12 (fb) - BTS) - George Smith, the Stunt-Master, struggled with old injuries and grew bitter about not being more famous. Wanting to steal the "Man Without Fear" nickname from Daredevil, he put together a plan. Using funding from Leveron Pharmaceuticals, Smith hired a new Stunt-Master, and they put together a plan to lure homeless men in as stunt doubles and then kill them in accidents, letting the public think that Stunt-Master was legendary and death-defying. Stunt-Master began using the tagline "Man Without Fear".
(Daredevil IV#11) - Stunt-Master attempted the longest leap in history, from San Francisco to Alcatraz Island, as the media recorded the event. A rigged helicopter crashed in front of the bike, and Stunt-Master seemingly jumped through it, landing safely (in actuality, the disguised homeless man had been killed). When a young fan asked about the original Stunt-Master, the new one said the old one was old and infirm.
(Daredevil IV#11 - BTS) - As Stunt-Master prepared his next stunt on the Golden Gate Bridge, where he planned to just ride across on suspension cables, George Smith sought to hire the lawfirm of Matt Murdock (Daredevil) and Kirsten McDuffie to represent him in a lawsuit against the new Stunt-Master and Leveron Pharmaceuticals. Leveron and Stunt-Master threatened a return lawsuit. Soon, news hit the media that George Smith had committed suicide.
(Daredevil IV#11) - At the Golden Gate Bridge, Stunt-Master began riding up the bridge to the cables, but Daredevil blocked his way, saying he was going to hold Stunt-Master accountable for Smith's death. Stunt-Master whispered that Smith was alive and being held by Leveron, then he entered a truck to trade places with the original, George Smith. Daredevil boarded a duplicate bike from the truck, realizing the truth.
(Daredevil IV#12) - Daredevil saved George Smith from being killed in the Golden Gate Bridge stunt, then he confronted Stunt-Master forcefully, but he said he wasn't in charge, then he stole another man's bike to escape. Daredevil pursued in a car, despite being blind, and managed to knock Stunt-Master off his bike. As "Kid Stunt-Master" was taken to the ICU, Daredevil exposed Smith's crimes and vowed to put pressure on Leveron to give up all those involved.

Stunt-Master should not be confused with:
(Daredevil IV#12 (fb) - BTS) - Leveron Pharmaceuticals made a financial deal with George Smith, the Stunt-Master. Smith planned to train a young protégé who would take the name Stunt-Master, then plan elaborate public stunts that would make the young man world-famous. To make the stunts appear more appealing to the public, Smith and Leveron recruited homeless men who would then be drugged and put in Stunt-Master costumes, these men interjected into the stunts and were killed to make it seem as if Stunt-Master was defying death itself.
(Daredevil IV#11 - BTS) - Smith pushed his plots forward, claiming to attorneys Matt Murdock (Daredevil) and Kirsten McDuffie that Leveron had stolen his likeness.
(Daredevil IV#12 - BTS) - Daredevil exposed the Stunt-Master's crimes and saw him arrested, then he put legal pressure on Leveron to come clean publicly.
