"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

She waits all night but he doesn't call.

Anybody feel like this is kind of a low for kingpin? Fixing boxing matches is kinda small time, and the last panel is just plain petty.

I was worried when I read the quote that we were going to get some sort of "poor misunderstood Wilson; he really just wants to help!" story; how pleasant to read a "nope, he's still a creep and crook" story.

Oh, this was supposed to run for longer? Pity.

It must be meant as a parallel to Daredevil's origin story.

A few stories toss around the idea Wilson Fisk isn't as smart as he appears to be. "Daredevil beat me this time, making my ultimate victory all the sweeter!" And he only found out Daredevil's secret identity through dumb luck, not even knowing about Matt's powers. (Unless he did know. That is more of a continuity question.)

Still as nothing compared to Apocalypse, who responds to EVERY setback with "A-ha, this has all gone the way I wanted it to, to achieve my REAL masterplan" which must have every Horseman ever quietly rolling their eyes and making "Yeah, sure boss, sure" comments.

I love Rosenberg's quote. Moral relativism with a side of ego.

"Sure, Fisk always seemed like the villain, but now he's got -ME- writing him!"

But he's putting the success of this sort of thing on himself. Not any writer willing to explore the Kingpin in that way (of which there have been several, actually)and "make him look good": Him.

I'm just going by the quote on this page, Hoss.
