GET READY GHOULS, ABC is prepping a show for next month in which you'll be able to wait breathlessly for three hours to see if a daredevil plunges to his death. The alphabet network is turning Nik Wallenda's attempted tightrope walk through the mist and wind over Niagara Falls into a prime-time TV event on June 15. As a tie-in, if Nik needs a doctor, the cast of "Grey's Anatomy" will appear. Wallenda is a seventh-generation member of the famous Wallenda daredevil family, whose history as a traveling circus troupe dates to 1780.

The parents of Mathias Rust yesterday expressed astonishment at reports that their 19-year-old son had flown a single-engine aircraft across Soviet territory and had landed in Moscow's Red Square. Others in Hamburg who knew Rust said he was a reserved youth - "not a daredevil" - who dreamed of becoming a commercial pilot. An officer of the Hamberg Aero Club, where Rust learned to fly, said yesterday, "We're all furious with Mathias Rust. " A club spokesman said, "He wanted to become a commercial pilot.

He's a painkiller junkie in head-to-toe leather the color of spilled blood. He swoops through the cityscape in the dead of night, whacking slimeballs with his fancy billy club. He wears a pointy-eared cowl. And he's got Ben Affleck's dimpled chin. Daredevil, based on Marvel Comics' sight-impaired superhero - a blind man whose remaining senses are preternaturally fine-tuned - has been brought to the screen with a mix of jaunty humor and jagged violence that should have worked more effectively than it does.

  Marvel's Daredevil , Netflix's latest offering, is a well-scripted, beautifully acted superhero saga that is surprisingly impressive. The 13-episode first season will be posted Friday by the streaming-video provider. For someone who's never cared much for the whole comic book and superhero shtick   , it is shockingly, alarmingly impressive. Developed by World War Z writer Drew Goddard, Daredevil is the first of four planned series coproduced by Marvel TV and Netflix.

One of the things I liked best about the first season of Marvel's Daredevil is that it allowed anyone with a Netflix account to audit the class, whether or not they had done the reading. But the Marvel universe is relentless and ever-expanding, and as Daredevil returns to Netflix on Friday with 13 new episodes, Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) isn't quite as much at the center of even his corner of that universe as he was. He's still a blind lawyer by day, kick-ass vigilante by night, but his Daredevil persona's challenged by another, more brutal version known as Punisher (Jon Bernthal, The Walking Dead )

Of the 4,700 characters in the Marvel Comics family, Daredevil ranks somewhere between Spider-Man and Howard the Duck. Director Mark Steven Johnson knew that when he started his crusade six years ago to bring the comic book hero of his childhood to the big screen. Business might be booming for superheroes in Hollywood since the huge success of last summer's "Spider-Man," but Johnson doesn't expect "Daredevil," opening Friday, to come close to matching its web-spinning counterpart.

It is crazy. If you watched them yesterday outside the First Union Center, there is no question about that. Because nobody just jumps their motorcycle off a ramp and performs tricks in mid-air like that. But the MotoX freestyle riders at the X Games did just that. They did it again and again, with each trick more dangerous than the last. "You can't ask for anything more," said Jake Windham, the Shingle Springs, Calif., resident who won the freestyle bronze with 91.67 points.

When Father's Day comes next month, many people will be thinking about the lessons their fathers have taught them: tying shoes, swinging a bat, multiplying fractions. Eighteen-year old Frances Flores probably will be doing what her father taught her: riding a motorcycle around the inside of a big iron globe at up to 65 m.p.h. One of only three women in the country to perform in the so-called Globe of Death (her sister, Victoria, is another), Frances Flores and her family are on the road nine months a year performing their Fearless Flores Circus and Thrill Show at county and state fairs.

Swift says mom is ill Taylor Swift on Thursday shared grave family news: Her mother Andrea Swift has been diagnosed with cancer. Taylor did not specify the type of cancer or prognosis. "I'd like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private," the singer, 25, writes on Tumblr.

LITTLE COLORADO RIVER GORGE, Ariz. - Florida aerialist Nik Wallenda completed a tightrope walk that took him a quarter mile over the Little Colorado River Gorge in northeastern Arizona on Sunday. Wallenda performed the stunt on a two-inch-thick steel cable, 1,500 feet above the river on the Navajo Nation near the Grand Canyon. He took just more than 22 minutes, pausing and crouching twice as winds whipped around him so that he could get "the rhythm out of the rope. " "Thank you Lord.

At the time, it seemed like a great idea, a nocturnal outing on a spring evening for a dozen or so Temple University friends. "Let's go to the Divine Lorraine," Brian Jerome, then a 19-year-old art student, suggested to all those assembled on the benches outside Peabody Hall. It was before midnight on April 6, 2010. Brian had been inside the abandoned hotel on North Broad Street many times. He had felt the lure of the graffiti-draped Divine Lorraine from the moment he arrived on campus as a freshman the year before.

PAMPLONA, Spain - One elderly thrill-seeker was gored in a leg and five others slightly injured as thousands of adrenaline-fueled runners raced ahead of six fighting bulls in the streets of the northern Spanish city of Pamplona in the first running of the bulls of this year's San Fermin festival, officials said Saturday. Runners, in traditional white clothing and red kerchiefs around their necks, tripped over each other or fell in the mad daredevil annual rush along early morning dew-moistened slippery streets to the city's bull ring.

In an industry known for big things - big tents, big animals, big crowds - it might be hard to outdo a show that explores the fiercest creature of mythology in the luckiest year of the Chinese zodiac. The sister-sister partnership behind a new Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey production is setting the tent pole high. "Dragons," the circus tour running through Monday at the Wells Fargo Center, may be the most thematic, modern, and inclusive one yet. In coordination with the Chinese Year of the Dragon, the show - conceived by Alana and Nicole Feld - targets a tech-savvy generation of children by blending contemporary with traditional elements, high-tech with human-powered spectacles, and fantasy with reality.
