According to Marvel Comics, Daredevil: Born Again follows Karen Page, the former secretary of Nelson and Murdock, who left New York City to pursue an acting career in Hollywood. However, her plans did not work out, and she became a star in adult films and a heroin addict. Unable to take control of her life, she spirals deeper and deeper into the existence of hunger, needs, and desperation, until she finally sells Matt Murdock’s secret identity for a shot of heroin.
This information eventually reaches Kingpin, who proceeds to test it. Over the next six months, he uses his vast influence to hound Matt, causing his accounts to be frozen by the IRS, the bank to foreclose on his house, and in general, make Matt’s life increasingly unbearable. He even manipulates police lieutenant Nick Manolis into testifying that he saw Matt pay a witness to perjure himself in a case. In the resulting trial, Matt manages to avoid a jail term, but he is barred from practicing law. The Kingpin skillfully ruins Matt’s life piece by piece, but he cannot see Kingpin’s handiwork – instead, he is convinced that he is simply unlucky and that there is no enemy for him to fight except for his increasingly desperate and violent attempts to investigate this situation.
