Matt Grayson was a circus aerialist in his youth, performing in the travelling Fisk Circus operated by entrepreneur Rupert Fisk. As part of a "protection money" racket, mob enforcer Lester Zucco sabotaged the circus equipment and an exploding stage light left Matt blind while his parents fell to their deaths. Matt left the circus and decided to pursue a law degree. Meanwhile, Matt met Ted "Stick" Wayne, a former prize fighter who ran a dojo and who took Matt under his wing. Wayne taught Matt to fine-tune his other senses to superhuman levels in lieu of his sight and Matt eventually became a skilled fighter, becoming a vigilante. Matt also struck up a romance with his classmate at law school, Barbara Natchios, daughter of police commissioner Jim Natchios. Lawyer by day, protector of Gothell City by night, Matt Grayson is Devilwing.
The base figure for this was an ML Daredevil from the Spider-Man Legends series. I swapped out the head for one from an ML Falcon; dremelling inside the head so it could fit on the Daredevil neck peg. I sculpted on the chest emblem, stripes down the sides of both arms, boot cuffs and mask. The horns on his head were cut from the tips of toothpicks. I decided to add "devil eyes" to the Nightwing emblem and kind of worked horns into the design. I painted everything up and also painted the nunchucks black. Hope you guys like this one. "Devilwing" is a name that has been used by several artists as the name of either a Batman and Daredevil amalgam or a Daredevil and Nightwing amalgam but I really like how it sounds so I'm appropriating that. Thanks for looking!
