- “You'd have to be a daredevil, to dare to challenge me!”
Kingpin (real name Wilson Fisk) is a fictional supervillain from Marvel Comics. He appears as the main antagonist of the first season of Daredevil, and a supporting antagonist of the second season. A ruthless and powerful crimelord, Kingpin's goal is to tear the economy of his hometown Hell's Kitchen apart so that he may rebuild it better, free of pain and crime. However, his seemingly noble agendas eventually give way to simple power-craving and manipulation. He is commonly seen as a recurring foe of Spider-Man and the archnemesis of Daredevil.
Kingpin was created by Stan Lee and John Romita, Sr.
- Kingpin was originally played by the late Michael Clarke Duncan in the ill received 2003 film Daredevil.
- Kingpin first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #50 (July 1967) originally as a regular of Spider-Man's rogue's gallery. In the comics he has respect for Daredevil and despises Spider-Man with a passion due to the latter's fat jokes, his witty banter, his taunts, & his immaturity. Only respecting the wall-crawler's scientific interest and knowledge.
