Despite what you may think, J.R. Murdock did have a normal childhood. That is, if you consider swimming in lakes, playing hide and seek in the woods, and spending more time with his imagination than a television. He sometimes hears little voices inside his head, which he ignores. Most of the time.
When not listening to the voices inside his head, J.R. Murdock spends time with his wife and his favorite (and only) daughter. They reside in sunny San Diego, which is about as close to paradise as you can get and still be in a big city.
