Daredevil by Toy Biz

Black Widow was the love interest of Matt Murdock/Daredevil at one time. Daredevil is the man without fear, blinded as a youth in a radioactive accident that also drastically heightened his remaining senses and gave him a "radar-sense" allowing him to perceive his surroundings. It was Frank Miller's influential work on the title in the late 1970s and early 1980s that cemented the character as an integral part of the Marvel Universe. Daredevil (played by Ben Affleck) was also made into a live-action film released in 2003; also in the film was Elektra (Jennifer Garner), Bullseye (Colin Farrell) and the Kingpin (Michael Clarke Duncan).

Another of Toy Biz's infamous headsculpt with the open mouth, jaw dropping expression, just like their Cap, a poor cousin to Hasbro's.

Another gripe - those kitchen mittens - are the super villians too hot to handle?

Nice touch with the billy club - it can be joined to form a staff

An integral part of Frank Miller's Daredevil was Ben Urich (played by Joe Pantoliano, Cypher in The Matrix, Deputy Marshal Cosmo Renfro in The Fugitive, Captain C Howard in Bad Boys II) - An investigative journalist whose articles notably relate to Daredevil and the Kingpin.
