Well to be fair his entire origin got more of a makeover than almost everyone else.
Edit: Just finished Daredevil with my free month of Netflix and all I have to say is WOW! This is one of the most well-written dramas I've ever seen and by and large the performances were electric. Elden Henson as Foggy was, in my opinion, the best written and best acted part in the entire thing. What I regret is that Fisk, portrayed by Vincent D'Onofrio, was poorly acted and written as less complex and sophisticated as I recall him being from the old Spider-Man cartoon. I like how they fluttered romance in front of us and yet never made it a distracting focal point, and the tension between Matt and certain parties who learn his secret.
Would really prefer they not have demanded so heavily on our suspension of disbelief for how non-superpowered humans withstand and keep fighting with such an ungodly amount of damage and pain, and not seem to have any repercussions that would keep them from going out the very next day and not only not limping, popping stitches or weeping at muscle aches, but continuing to fight as though they were in peak condition. I don't buy that meditation crap (without a mystical element, which would have been an awesome lead-in to Iron Fist). If someone could have just had some sort of healing ability, that would have been fine (and probably more faithful to the comics) but no, we just had to swallow that a guy who must feel pain even more acutely than any of us somehow shrugs it off and goes off to get hurt more? Sorry, nuh-uh. That shit won't fly, son.
