YMMV: The Kingpin
  • Complete Monster: In The Punisher MAX, Wilson Fisk begins as a mob boss's bodyguard with a scheme to manipulate the mob and The Punisher to make himself the Kingpin of New York. Fisk is steadily revealed as a callous monster who paralyzed his abusive father and let rats eat his face. After he was raped in prison, he tracked down the perpetrator's innocent wife, allowing the filthiest bums and crackheads he could find rape her before he murdered her, and sent the photos to her husband. When Fisk's schemes unravel, his innocent child is held at knifepoint by Fisk's former boss. Fisk coldly allows his son's throat to be slit and icily informs his wife they can simply have another, admitting he never truly loved his son. As the Kingpin, Fisk is brutal, killing lieutenants and foes alike, and exiling his grieving wife. In his final battle with Castle, Fisk reveals himself as a self-center egomaniac who believes he owns the city and has the right to do what he wishes with it.
  • Magnificent Bastard: In a world that has to put up with Mad Scientists, superhuman terrorists, Killer Robots, Alien Invasions, monsters, demons and all manner of other horrors...Wilson Fisk, a human crime lord, has managed to remain a significant threat. He has fought and won gang wars with the likes of HYDRA, Norman Osborn, the Red Skull and others and managed to survive, and even win; he has lost his empire several times but always manages to tear it back; he once tricked Iron Man into eliminating a competitor for him; he has had some of the worlds deadliest assassins, mercenaries and terrorists on his payroll; and he was and remains the benchmark for all other Marvel crime bosses to surpass- every time he is out of the picture, they fights amongst themselves for the privilege of becoming "the next Kingpin".
