History: Ben Urich grew up in Brooklyn. From an early age, he delighted in discovering the truth behind events. He worked his way through college working in the mail room of the Daily Bugle; after receiving his journalism degree he was promoted to reporter.

Urich became interested in the masked vigilante operating in Hell's Kitchen who was going by the name of Daredevil, and started following his exploits for the Bugle. Daredevil's career almost became an obsession for Urich, to the point that his wife divorced him over it. Urich was determined to discover Daredevil's secret. Eventually, Urich obtained enough proof to link Daredevil to the blind Assistant District Attorney Matt Murdock.

As he was writing his exposé, however, Urich came to realize what this piece would mean not only to himself, but to Murdock: If he went ahead and sent the piece to the Bugle's publisher, J. Jonah Jameson, Murdock would be finished. Over the course of his investigation, Urich had started to relate to Murdock, and could not bring himself to destroy another man's life so callously. Ultimately, Urich deleted the article.

Urich has since lent his investigative and journalistic talents to aid Daredevil on several occasions since.
