The King of Crime is back! Remember Wilson Fisk’s great moments in the comics

The villain is an eternal menace in the Marvel Universe

The last episode of Gavião Arqueiro ended with a doubt present to the public since the first episode; Who is the spirit behind the crimes of the trucker gang? After much speculation, it was revealed that none other than the King of Crime himself was about to begin his journey in the MCU, initially continuing the version featured in the Netflix series of Daredevil.

Yet the version played by Vincent D’Onofrio isn’t the only one to wreak havoc on the lives of Marvel’s heroes, with the villain responsible for being New York’s scarecrow since 1967. Check out the moments when Wilson Fisk became the life of a hero a martyr.

The King of Crime and the Daredevil have an extremely destructive relationship, in which it is not uncommon for one to always be seen as the other’s archenemy. Among the many clashes between the two is the seventh volume of the series signed by Brian Michael Bendis titled Hardcore. In the plot, Daredevil tries to move on with his life with a new relationship, but a murder charge falls to his knees and his life becomes even more chaotic.

“Hardcore” continued Daredevil’s morally complex stories

Meanwhile, Fisk resumes his campaign to regain control of the city and, to face the Fearless Man, brings with him two of the hero’s enemies. In a story that tells two separate stories, the journeys of Matt Murdock and Wilson Fisk unfold alongside a bloody clash.

The gangster doesn’t just live on wars; sometimes an unlikely alliance is needed to achieve goals. After becoming the leader of the organization known as “The Hand”, Daredevil builds a prison in Hell’s Kitchen for his enemies. His criminal attitudes soon trigger, albeit annoyed, Marvel’s street heroes (such as Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Spider-Man).

In the meantime, Fisk appears with a goal aligned with that of the heroes, as The Hand disrupts his affairs. The heroes disagree with Fisk’s help, so he decides to play tough by summoning Ghost Rider, through a scroll, to deal with Murdock. In this way, the King of Crime controlled the Messenger of Hell.

The height of enmity between the Kingpin and the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen was signed by none other than Frank Miller, during his time at the helm of the hero series. The plot begins with Karen Page, then Matt’s ex-girlfriend and completely addicted to drugs, who hands over Daredevil’s identity to a drug dealer in exchange for the illicit substance.

This criminal then contacts Fisk and offers the information at a very high price; the gangster does not hesitate to buy. Now knowing the identity of his greatest enemy, the King of Crime begins to attack Daredevil’s allies in time, destroying everyone’s lives and leaving Matt for the end. Only then does he reveal his vigilant identity to the world.

With all assets stranded and hunted down by police and crime, Daredevil finds himself in an endless and increasingly desperate fall. The desperation is such that even your unwavering faith in divine justice begins to falter and killing your enemy gradually becomes the only solution.
