History: Even as a boy, Ben Urich had developed a passionate interest in journalism. By the time he had reached his teens, he had long since decided to make it his profession, and began working as a copy boy for the Daily Bugle. Eventually, Urich worked his way up to reporter, and embarked on a respectable if undistinguished career in the newspaper business, concentrating on stories of both petty and organized crime in New York City. But the "big story" that would catapult him into unqualified success eluded him until he became interested in the costumed adventurer known as Daredevil. On a hunch, he began keeping files on all of Daredevil's known activities, devoting a great deal of his off-hour to research and investigation of the mysterious man in red. Eventually, he managed to deduce not only Daredevil's civilian identity, but also to piece together the background and series of events that led to Daredevil's crimefighting career. Knowing that he had at last found the 'big story" he had sought, he nonetheless hesitated to publish it. Urich had by now studied his subject so thoroughly that he had begun to empathize with him, and he knew that to reveal his secrets would ruin him, as well as deprive New York of a powerful force for good. After meeting Daredevil in person, and later aiding him on a case, Urich realized that his conscience would never allow him to print his story. He then burned his notes and files, insuring that Daredevil's secret would remain safe. He did, however, reveal to Daredevil himself what he knew, and the two became friends of a sort, occasionally helping each other out in their respective career, a situation that continues to this day.
