We all know that Matt Murdock is the real Daredevil. At some point Danny Rand dressed up as Daredevil and tried to take on his role.
Why did Danny Rand (Iron Fist) pose as the Daredevil, and how did he do it?

The impact of his exposure as Daredevil continued to be used as a plot point by both Bendis and writer Ed Brubaker and artist Michael Lark, who became the new creative team with Daredevil vol. 2, #82 (Feb. 2006), no longer under the Marvel Knights imprint.
Brubaker's first story arc had a new character masquerading as Daredevil in Hell's Kitchen. Murdock later discovered the ersatz Daredevil is his friend Danny Rand, the superhero, Iron Fist.
Brubaker said: "Yes, I'm relieved, but at the same time, it was always the plan to reveal it this issue, and it was never meant to be as big a deal as it ended up being. It was just one part of a much larger story, one that the next arc follows up on. This whole 'who's the other DD' mystery that cropped up the last few weeks and ran around the Internet was unplanned, and I thought it was really amusing to watch, though a little nerve-wracking at the same time. I'm just glad it wasn't the only secret we were sitting on."
