Kingpin

History

Raised by an abusive father and a beleaguered mother in a crappy Hell’s Kitchen apartment. His father had huge dreams he never could quite realize, and he took his frustration out on his overweight, gentle son on a near daily basis. When abuse didn’t cause strain, poverty and financial troubles did. Anxious, fat Willie lived his life in a state of sick terror.

Then, one day, his father lost it on the father of a boy who dared to poke fun at his failed city council campaign. He forced Willie to participate in a brutal assault crime. Something inside the boy snapped.

The next time the elder Fisk tried to attack Willie’s Mom, the “toughen up and be a man” strategy backfired in a big way. Wilson took a hammer to his father’s skull in a fit of rage. He and his mother disposed of the body in grisly fashion.

Life got better. Freed from his anxiety under the care of his beloved mother, bound by secrets, and burning with new purpose, Wilson threw himself into the hard work of making something out of himself. He learned everything there was to know about making money and managing people…including the inner workings of the gangs that were so very familiar to him from his home town.

One day, he stepped out of the shadows and began taking control of those gangs one by one: buying loyalty here, issuing pressure there, creating alliances where nobody would have ever thought to create them before.

Recent Events

Ambition is a harsh mistress.

Led by the hero known as Daredevil, an attempt to create designer drugs meant to give people temporary superpowers was thwarted. Fisk lost millions in the bargain, and began doing his best to "dissuade" them from interfering in his affairs again.

For a little while, it worked. They seemed to either back off, or get very ensconced in the things he was doing to put a stop to their…antics.

But when he enacted his master plan to build a beautiful Hell's Kitchen, to wash it clean of men like his father, he galvanized them, along with every law enforcement agency one could possibly name. Blowing up the majority of an entire New York City neighborhood will do that.

Ultimately, though, it was the Defenders who took him down and brought him in, with SHIELD's help. He's currently imprisoned in the Raft itself.

Anyone would be forgiven for thinking he's done for.

Anyone…would be wrong.

Personality

Ask Wilson Fisk who he sees when he looks in the mirror, and he will tell you that he sees a hero: a man who intends to do what must be done to make the world a better place.

His methods may be dark, but the criminals will ever be with us, to paraphrase the Bible. Which is better, to let them run amok, or to guide them with a strong and paternal hand towards constructive ends? And in the end, the wheat shall be separated from the chaff and the vast majority of those he controls shall be consigned to the fires. Only a remnant of a remnant shall be saved: those who are as intelligent and necessary as he.

He has risen from nothing to become a man of culture, a man of quality. He wishes to build a world where culture and quality might flourish, sweeping away the trash to make room for the treasure. It’s a lonely life, but the life of a true genius often is.

Underneath it all is a deep undercurrent of rage. Everything he’s built, everything he’s doing, everything he cares about is an attempt to erase his father and men like his father from the world.
