You would not believe that a human being can be the best villain in MCU – not just Thanos but also Kingpin.
Who is Kingpin?
Wilson Grand Fisk, known as Kingpin, is a powerful businessman and a dangerous crime lord, who controls his interest in New York City. He is described as New York City’s crime overlord. In an attempt to gain power in New York City and to rebuild the Hell’s Kitchen through destruction and gentrification, Kingpin formed alliances with other criminal enterprises. Later on, he joined an international terrorist syndicate called HYDRA.
Kingpin was first introduced as Spiderman’s adversary. Eventually, he got fully recognized as a powerful villain when his criminal activities brought conflict to Daredevil, the Punisher, and Echo (Punisher’s adopted daughter).
Despite his being a dangerous crime lord now, Kingpin was once bullied by his classmates because he grew up poor and his being overweight. Angry about his environment, Kingpin joined the mob at an early age. He worked out relentlessly until he was able to defend and torment his bullies.
The Kingpin is depicted to have the same build as Sumo wrestlers, but a heavily-muscled one. Despite his appearance, he is formidable when it comes to hand-to-hand combat.
Why is Kingpin the best villain in MCU?
Of course, there are several great villains in MCU, including Thanos who is the most powerful villain on a huge scale, but you can’t avoid putting Kingpin on the list of the evilest villains in MCU to date. Here are the top reasons why:
- A wolf in sheep’s clothing
Who would think that a caring family man is a merciless criminal boss? He is willing to kill anyone, especially his traitorous goons using his bare hands. He is a quick, bad-tempered villain. And he is criminally genius.
- Great willpower
Even without superpowers, Kingpins is one of the best villains in MCU. He has an indomitable will to control everyone, even the heroes, antiheroes, and other villains. He will do whatever it takes to maintain his stronghold in New York’s underground. Plus, he is infused with real threats, trusting only himself to keep his position on the top.
He is a cruel child trafficker, drug smuggler, thief, and murderer – he is called the Kingpin.
Additionally, because of his great willpower, he can resist psychic attacks.
- Possesses peak human strength
Kingpin’s enormous size is composed almost entirely of muscles. With this, he possesses peak human strength, making it difficult for his enemies to defeat him, even Deadpool.
MCU fans are thrilled to see the most iconic characters in a movie. Who do you think is more powerful if there’s a film for deadpool vs kingpin?
- He is a master martial artist
Kingpin is extraordinarily skilled when it comes to hand-to-hand combat. This is because Kingpin specializes in several martial arts, including sumo wrestling, hapkido, and judo. Despite Kingpin’s enormous build, his agility is comparable to Spiderman’s.
Kingpin does not need superpowers when combating his enemies; he only needs his strength and martial art skills.
- He is a criminal genius
What makes Wilson Fisk the “Kingpin” is his highly skilled planning and organizing of his evil doings. He is capable of employing several evil henchmen, scientists, and dark heroes. He can feed off greed and fear to people loyal to him.
Kingpin isn’t the very best villain, but one of the evilest villains in the MCU.
