Even then I think he considers himself to be a protector of New York so his motives are probably genuine as far as they can be for someone like him.

Fisk has a "I prevent New York from tearing itself apart with criminal anarchy" perspective. A few stories actually back that up: Fisk disappears and the hero is busy with other criminals trying to seize power.

I'm probably guilty of oversimplification here, but I think most writers write Fisk as more of a "you can't destroy New York, it's where I keep my stuff" sort of villain.

Or maybe "hey, you can't terrorize my city; only I get to terrorize my city."

I guess it's a "depends on the writer" situation but a number of times Kingpin is written as someone who loves his city and views what he does as necessary for New York to thrive.

Perhaps, but only within the scope of "how does this benefit Fisk?"

I've never bought Fisk's expressions of civic pride or duty as anything other than self-serving excuses for his own ruthlessness and ambition.

"If I benefit, then New York benefits" is probably the thought process.

He does protect New York… in the same way that an abusive, exploitative husband protects his wife from (other) threats. He sees the city as his.
