The Rescue of the Kidnapped Boy was a mission undertaken by Matt Murdock to rescue a young boy from gangsters Anatoly and Vladimir Ranskahov.


Hearing the screams of a young boy being abducted from his father's car, Matt Murdock attempted to save him, after following the kidnappers for two days, he was ambushed and left badly beaten.

He barely escaped and was forced to hide inside a dumpster. A young man named Santino found the injured Murdock in the dumpster and quickly alerted his neighbor, the nurse Claire Temple. In Temple's apartment, she tended to his wounds, saving his life.

Soon, Semyon, a mobster sent by Vladimir Ranskahov, arrived at the apartment complex and tries to find Murdock. With Temple's help, Murdock kidnapped Semyon and interrogated him to find out where the boy is being held. He then threw him from the roof, causing him to land in a dumpster and become comatose.

Murdock told Temple to move apartment so that the other gangsters would not find her. She gave him the location where she can be found in the future, in case he needed any more help. Murdock headed out to find the young boy.[1]


He arrived a the place and after a lengthy fight between Murdock and nine thugs, Murdock saved the boy and brought him back to his father.[1]


Vladimir and Anatoly Ranskahov found and visited Semyon at the hospital. They woke him up with a shot of epinephrine. Upon awakening, Semyon was asked what he knew about the masked man; he revealed the location of Claire Temple's Apartment to which Sergei was sent. He then breathed his last after giving that information.[2]
