If you’ve been following my writing, you’ll notice something different this time. I’m starting a series about the top Marvel villains and why they’re great. We’re kicking off with Wilson Fisk, also known as Kingpin. I came across him recently, mainly from the Daredevil series. His wildness, meanness, and smarts make him my top villain pick. His savagery, cruelty, and brilliance further solidify his position as the number one villain in my book.

Despite his brutality, this guy, Fisk, is not a simpleton. He believed that being strong was crucial for gaining power in the criminal world and regularly displays incredible, even superhuman, physical strength. But it is his mind and resolve that truly makes him a super villain that rules over the underworld of New York. He is an arch nemesis of Spiderman, Daredevil and many street-level MCU heroes. 

A fun fact to finish with, Kingpin has also developed a keen interest in sumo wrestling and the study of politics over his years fighting humanity.
