Bio: Larry Cranston was a law school classmate of Matt Murdock who also became his employer for a while. Cranston overheard Sam Saxon killing the original Mr. Fear, Zoltan Drago; after learning that Saxon (who had taken on the identity of Mr. Fear) had also died, Cranston himself assumed the guise of Fear.
Cranston went mad during his first effort against Daredevil, jumping off a building, assuming that he was wearing a rocket pack which he had previously worn in battle with the hero.
Cranston survived the fall and returned years later. He masterminded a series of campaigns meant to discredit Daredevil with the aid of the current Enforcers, the Eel, and a sleepless villainess named Insomnia. Daredevil bested these efforts, Cranston abandoning the Mr. Fear identity.
Cranston has recently resurfaced, providing the criminals of Hell's Kitchen a drug that causes the user to become completley unafraid of death in an attempt to make Daredevil's life miserable.
