"It’s all a question of scope. While Spider-Man and Daredevil spend a lot of time fighting in alleys, Kingpin wages his war across the whole city. He wants a better class of crime, less dangerous for the average person. He wants a generally safer city and he is willing to get his hands dirty to get there. And just because Spider-Man and Daredevil don’t agree with Kingpin’s tactics doesn’t mean they are right and he is wrong. It just means for years they have had people like [writers] Dan Slott and Charles Soule telling their side of the story, making them look good. And now Wilson Fisk has me." - Matthew Rosenberg

"I don’t want to tell the reader who to trust and who not to trust here. Wilson Fisk has done a lot of bad things, and he is honest about that. He is a man asking for forgiveness, and that is a personal thing. I hope every reader, like the characters in the book, will weigh whether or not he deserves it. And maybe some won’t think he does. The story works in that case too, I hope. Fisk genuinely wants to accomplish big changes in his life and go down a different path. Personally, I hope he can." - Matthew Rosenberg

"Fisk doesn’t respect Daredevil any more than he respects the RICO Act or the Vice Squad. Maybe even less, because at least some elected officials made those things up. Vigilantism is just a different branch of organized crime. It just has a more obscured agenda." -- Matthew Rosenberg

"We also are trying to show a little more of who Kingpin is behind the crime. We want to see his compassionate side, find out why he does what he does, what he cares about. He’s still a bad man, but he’s not *just* a bad man." -- Matthew Rosenberg

"Kingpin isn't like the other villains in a lot of ways. Guys like Red Skull and Thanos are monsters and there is only so much time you can spend with a monster. But Kingpin is really only slightly off from being a hero. He has all the makings of a Spider-Man type really. He is smart, overcame adversity, he's passionate, driven, and gifted. The problem is his moral compass is a bit off. He is self-serving, sure, but he really cares about the city and he wants to be a force of good for it. He is just willing to cross lines that shouldn't be crossed to get there. So when it comes time to go further into who the Kingpin is, we don't need to change that. He's not a monster. He's a man who contains a lot of contradictions. He thinks he will end up being judged on the right side of history. Only time will tell." -- Matthew Rosenberg

"It was not Doc Doom and other villains at ground zero, just like it was not a young child crying for his fallen father. It was a representation...a symbol...a metaphor for real feelings and thoughts. It was, excuse the sugar-coating, JMS' and my heart and soul on those pages. I didn't ever cringe at the thought of those characters being in that spot. To me, it made sense. This kind of cowardly, unspeakable horror effects all of us...ALL OF US! I don't want to say..."Lighten Up"! I want everyone to concentrate on what happened on 9/11. Don't forget...Don't EVER forget!" -- John Romita Jr.

'Ultimate Knights' marked the final hurrah for Mark Bagley on 'Ultimate Spider-Man'. He would show up for guest spots (the most notable being the 'Death of Spider-Man' storyline and 'Ultimate End' if you count that) but this was the end of his stint as regular artist. At 111 issues together Bendis and Bagley had the longest-running partnership together on a Marvel title, a record that has yet to be broken.
