Other Info
Nicholas "Nick" Manolis was a decorated and competent New York City Police detective and a confidant of Daredevil (Matt Murdock).  (To learn more about Daredevil, click on his highlighted name above.)

One day, Nick Manolis' son became gravely ill and Nick was confronted with huge medical bills. Unable to afford the medical treatment to save his son's life, the desperate Manolis allied himself with the criminal "Kingpin" Wilson Fisk. Under the Kingpin's orders, Nick Manolis swore affidavits that Matt Murdock bribed testimony. Such affidavits from a noted policeman like Nick Manolis caused the state of New York to dis-bar Murdock. Soon after this, Matt confronted Manolis on his false testimony; however, he soon learned of Manolis' son's illness and decided to take not action against him. (Click on the highlighted name above to learn more about the Kingpin.)

Soon after this, Daily Bugle reporter Ben Urich also confronted Manolis about his false testimony. However, being emotionally torn, Manolis refused to recant his claims. (Click on the highlighted name above to learn more about Ben Urich.)
Unfortunately, later on, Nick's son succumbed to the illness and died. After this, Manolis decided to contact Ben Urich to set the record straight on his false charges against Matt Murdock. Unfortunately, during their interview, one of the Kingpin's operatives (a woman named "Lois") severely beat Manolis. (The after-math of the Lois attack is shown in the fifth picture posted.)

Soon after this incident, Manolis called Urich from the hospital to once again confess. However, Lois showed up again, but this time to finish the job--she killed Manolis while Urich was on the other end of the phone line. 

There isn't anything there, but here is the link to Nick Manolis on,

In the 2003 Daredevil movie, unlike the comics, the film version of Nick Manolis is more critical towards Daredevil, and initially believed him to be an urban legend until he actually sees Daredevil battling Bullseye in a church. (To learn about the Bullseye, just click on his name above.)

  1. Poor guy- just trying to save his son.

    Also, pretty creepy for Urich to hear someone die over the phone. Blech.
