YMMV / The Kingpin

  • Can't Unhear It: Roscoe Lee Browne, or Michael Clarke Duncan
  • Jerkass Woobie: He has countless crimes to his name, but his life is equally miserable. He's tried to get out of his life of crime more than once, only to get pulled back in. The wife and son he loved have both tried to kill him, and later died. He later managed to find a new wife and family, and then he lost them too.
  • 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 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 get it back; he once tricked Iron Man into eliminating a competitor for him; he has had some of the world's 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 fight among themselves for the privilege of becoming "the next Kingpin".
