Can you explain to me why you failed your test today?
Matt Murdock is blind. Thats a fact and It drives me crazy that people seem to miss that whole concept of world on fire. He is blind. 100% but he gathers the data of what he senses, hears, smells, tastes, and feels to put together a picture in his head. It's not him seeing, it's him putting it all together to figure out what the data is telling him. He does not see, but he can sense in 360° everything around him. It just drives me crazy how people don't get that. He does not see forward with his eyes, he senses things all around him with his body. It would be impossible to show what that is like to sense things in that degree, so they chose to show the world on fire, but I just wanted everyone to make sure they understand that he cannot see, but that his body can sense things. He doesn't see the world on fire, he imagines it.
