Daredevil: 10 Reasons Wilson Fisk Is The Best MCU Villain

10. He's The Perfect Match For The Hero

Netflix

When it comes to the hero/villain relationships it is those with the most similarities that are the most compelling. Spider-Man may have an entire menagerie of supervillains to contend with, but there is a reason that Erik Lehnsherr returns to battle the X-Men time and time again. The fact that he and old sparring partner Charles Xavier are opposite sides of the same coin, fighting for the same goal of mutant rights but in different ways, adds a dimension to the conflict between their respective mutant factions that others can't match.

And this exact same principle applies to Wilson Fisk and Matt Murdock. Both grew up in Hell's Kitchen, an area of New York that is burdened with crime, but which they call their home. They may have different means at their disposals, not to mention opposing ideologies, but they both share the aim of restoring the glory of the neighbourhood they love so much. 

Whether as lawyer against criminal, or vigilante verses powerhouse, Murdock and Fisk are destined to butt heads at every opportunity. Not because they were raised as brothers and fight over the throne of Asgard, but because of the one common goal that both have devoted themselves to achieving.
