Daredevil's Wilson Fisk is not only the best Marvel Netflix villains, not only one of the best villains in the MCU as a whole, but is one of the single best on-screen comic book villains of all time, period.
He's just so unbelievably good at being bad. Plus, the sheer amount of emotion and nuance that Vincent D'Onofrio puts into his performance is unmatched.
Fisk is an incredibly intelligence crime boss who kept his identity under wraps for as long as he could while his sheer influence was felt throughout the entirety of Daredevil's first season. It's actually scary how much power he has and how many people are in his pocket. Plus, he's not the least bit afraid to get his own hands dirty, with his fighting skills and resilience rivaling even Matt Murdock's.
Even scarier is that he is genuinely convinced he is Hell's Kitchen's only hope for a bright future, regardless of how many people he has to kill or otherwise ruin to achieve his goals.
Also, anyone who may have thought that Fisk being sent to prison would be the end of him was sorely mistaken. Even behind bars, he's not only managed to essentially take over the place, but still has influence over the outside world.
Every single time you think you've gotten one over on him, he proves you wrong. And ultimately, while he has yet to properly adopt the title on television, Wilson Fisk has proved time and time again that he truly is the Kingpin.
Who do you think is the best Netflix Marvel villain? Let us know down in the comments.
