Dave Lizewski lead a typical high school life. He wasn't popular or a geek or class clown. He was just another average student at his high school. He couldn't even strike up a conversation with the girl he liked. His mother died of an aneurysm when he was fourteen and he lived with his dad, who was still having problems coping with her death.
As an escape, Dave played a lot of video games and was really into comic books. He became so obsessed with comics that he decided that was the career he wanted for himself, even though superheroes didn't really exist in the world.
One night he decided to put on a costume. He spent the first few weeks walking around on rooftops getting used to the costume and enjoying the thrill of wearing it underneath his clothes. He spent time working out and trying to come up with a name.
One day he decided to go into action. Seeing some kids spray painting a wall, he felt this was his time. Having courage from wearing a mask and costume, he approached and insulted the three kids. A fight began. Things didn't go so well as Dave ended up getting stabbed.
Dave struggled to walk home. Crossing the road, he ends up getting hit by a car. He was left with two broken legs and a crushed spine.
