* MagnificentBastard: Wilson "ComicBook/TheKingpin" Fisk is Marvel's greatest [[TheDon gangster]] and a consummate survivor. Having outfought, outwitted, and outlasted everyone who has ever tried to take his place, Fisk has secured his position as both New York's reigning mobster and a fixture in the supervillain community. With the capital to [[IOwnThisTown dominate the city]] and a reach that frequently spans continents, Fisk has developed the psychological torment of heroes like Matt Murdock and Peter Parker into an art form, and has left Matt's life in particular in ruins several times over. Always too stubborn to call it quits, Fisk rolls with or shrugs off everything that Marvel's heroes and villains can throw at him, while repeatedly demonstrating that only the most capable of opponents can do the same when he brings all his resources to bear on them. Having risen, fallen, and risen again, Fisk is never out of the game for long, and is always ready to show off the criminal skill and personal gravitas that made him Kingpin of Crime in the first place.

* MagnificentBastard:
** Under Mark Waid's pen, Matt himself slowly became one. For starters, he beats five of the most feared organizations in the Marvel Universe to get the Omegadrive, a device that has the location and names of everyone involved in the aforementioned organizations, providing enough evidence to take them down ''completely'', warning them that if any of them come after him or his family he'll take the info to SHIELD and wipe them off the face of the world. Neither can go after him without either facing this threat or making themselves a target to the other organization, their only solution is to work together, something none of them are capable of doing. When Black Spectre breaks rank and goes after it, he acts on his threat, utterly destroying them.
** Then, as the stress of everyone wanting it gets to the breaking point, Matt arranges for them all to come out and face him for it, only for ''Black Spectre'', the guys who supposedly no longer exist, to come out and utterly beat everyone, taking the device from them. But, its all part of his plan,[[spoiler: however, as its not really Black Spectre, its Wolverine, Spider-Man, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Mockingbird, all pretending to be Black Spectre. Now, the whole world thinks that that the guys who no longer exist have he device, meaning they'll turn their attention over to finding them, with no idea that the device is now in the hands of the Fantastic Four.]]
** Charles Soule continues the tradition, with Matt abusing his blindness in a high stakes poker game to play evenly with a telepath hired by the casino to win the tournament. Despite having ''no idea'' what's on his cards, he uses his other senses to see what the other players are thinking, and uses this to win thousands of dollars... that he is unable to cash out because he used a fake identity to enter the competition.
** Wilson Fisk, aka The Kingpin as well. No matter what the hero community does, The Kingpin will always return, more powerful and more in control than ever. A brilliant {{chessmaster}} and [[ManipulativeBastard emotional manipulator]], and one of the best non-powered fighters in the Marvel Universe, Fisk's more than a match for Daredevil, and is capable of rolling with any result however unexpected. As "Born Again", "Devil in Cell Block D", "Return of the King", and numerous other arcs demonstrate, he's fully capable of turning any situation to his advantage, regularly hijacking other supervillains' plans, and despite Daredevil's best efforts, can never be put away for good.

** The film has often been mentioned on ''ThisVeryWiki'' as being similar to and a pioneer for Nolan's [[Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy Batman films]]. (Look on this page under ''SeinfeldIsUnfunny''.) Given their adherence to a sense of realism about vigilantism, maybe Zack Snyder is a troper.

** Purple Man, born Zebediah [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Killgrave]], he might not have the most intimidating moniker, but he more than makes up for it with his sheer depravity. During his first outing, Killgrave used his powers of persuasion to take control of [[ComicBook/{{Daredevil}} Matt Murdock]]'s girlfriend, Karen Page, and tried to rape her, a [[SerialRapist trend he continued through the years]]. Later [[RoguesGalleryTransplant revamped]] by Creator/BrianMichaelBendis in his series ''ComicBook/{{Alias}}'' into an amoral [[TheSociopath sociopath]], Killgrave defeated the young superheroine Jessica Jones and [[MindRape made her his mental slave]], forcing her to watch him commit crimes, date rape women, and assist him throughout it all with her unable to do anything to stop him. While heaping physical, verbal and mental abuse on Jessica, stopping short of outright rape because she "wasn't worthy" of him, Killgrave later massacred an entire restaurant by ordering everyone to stop breathing for nothing more than being too loud, and followed this up by ordering an entire street of people to kill each other. In his latest appearance, Killgrave is revealed to have continued his penchant for raping women, purposefully impregnating several of them so they will give birth to children with his abilities, who Killgrave later recruits to his side after eliminating their parents, hoping to use the children to amplify his abilities and allow him to take his mental control powers global. Killgrave is what happens when you give someone who thinks ItsAllAboutMe is a code to live by, remove any empathy for other beings, and give them mind control powers and a serious desire to hurt others.

* ToughActToFollow: With the death of Creator/MichaelClarkeDuncan, the producers of the {{Netflix}} [[Series/{{Daredevil 2015}} show]] likely decided that there was no point trying to find other qualified actor as big as him to be the next version of Wilson Fisk and decided to cast Creator/VincentDOnofrio in the part. [[AbilityOverAppearance Thankfully, D'Onofrio turned in a performance that was even more layered and complex than the film's version]].

** The early [[TheNineties '90's]] is another widely panned period. Matt gets a new ridiculously DarkerAndEdgier costume, complete with metal shoulder pads and arm spikes, grows a five-o'clock shadow, and generally acts like a jerk to everyone for little to no reason. Throw in some terrible story arc's, like "The Iron Devil", and you get a period that most Daredevil fans would rather forget.

** The third Mister Fear, Larry Cranston, assumed the identity of Mister Fear after the deaths of the first two holders. A college rival of Matt's, Cranston resents Matt Murdock for having done better in law school than he did, and tries to ruin his life, using fear gas to induce panic attacks in his victims. Following his return in the 90s after a lengthy hiatus, Mister Fear III triggered a prison riot with his fear gas and escaped, leaving numerous dead. He also freed SerialKiller Charles Burroughs and supervillain Molten Man, and caused them to both go on rampages, while framing Karen Page, Matt's then LoveInterest for murder to boot (he later executed Burroughs for "[[ControlFreak going off script]]"). It was during Creator/EdBrubaker's run, however, that Fear III showed just how low he could go. He provided Lily Lucca with a perfume that permanently altered her body chemistry the men around her to go insane and kill each other, promising to fix her if she aided him (he lied; there is no cure). He then used his fear gas to drive reformed supervillain Melvin Potter/Gladiator into a psychotic break, leading to the deaths of dozens after a rampage through Chinatown. While all this is going on, he takes the place of Milla Donovan—Matt's wife's—psychiatrist, and drives her into a paranoid breakdown, leaving her institutionalised. This is without getting into his discovery that he can use his fear gas (which he now secretes from his pores) to [[SerialRapist force women to sleep with him]], something he does many times through the arc. Effectively impossible to punish, Mister Fear III was last seen in prison, forcing the other inmates to do his work, and raping a female prison guard.

* LoveItOrHateIt: The movie is either an underrated and faithful adaptation, or an insult to not only Daredevil fans, but to the general moviewatching audience (who generally didn't like it.) Although the movie has gotten more love thanks to the director's cut.
