The Kingpin (real name Wilson Fisk) is a major fictional Marvel Comics supervillain that originated in the Spider-Man comics and media. He has since then gone on to be a major enemy of Daredevil as well as a recurring villain for both Spider-Man and the Punisher. In recent years, he has been revised as being more of Daredevil's enemy rather than Spider-Man's and has appeared in more mature, realistic and adult-themed comic appearances. He is portrayed as one of the most feared and powerful crime lords in the Marvel Universe, typically holding the position of New York City's crime overlord.
The character first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #50. He became one of the key enemies of both Spider-Man and Daredevil, and is also a recurring adversary of the Punisher. IGN's list of the Top 100 Comic Book Villains Of All Time List ranked The Kingpin as number 10.
His signature look is his extraordinarily heavyset appearance, with most of his mass consisting of muscle. He usually wears a white suit jacket and carries a walking stick, which he tips with diamonds or other hard substances as necessary to aid his physical combat. The name 'Kingpin' is a reference to the title crime lord in mafia slang nomenclature.
